Recommended by us on 30th November 2006. 3 people love me. Be the 4th...
9/10 according to Brian (Norman Records staff) on Thu 30 Nov, 2006One of the most thrilling things about embryonic Acid house was the fact it actually still sounds really fresh today. Analogue, delirious & mad as badgers, not to mention influential as fuck it is. 808 State took the Detroit sound & added a further UK psychosis to it, claiming that the flow of really quality acid records from the States wasn't sufficient to satiate their appetites, so they started making their own. So for those who lapped up the seminal 'Newbuild', re-issued by Rephlex a few years ago, then here we now have 'Prebuild', early home recordings, sessions & deleted stuff from the really early days. It totally rocks. If you want to see where Squarepusher & his lil' bro' got some of their acid from, then look no further! CD/Dbl LP on Rephlex!
So, what do you think?

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
