I've never quite got this guy. He was hyped to fuck a few years ago (the “American Burial” anyone? Are you still there? No...come BACK NOW!) although his last album was like dubstep-gone-trance and sounded really zen-like and fresh in many places. Sounded nice accompanied by a glass of Rioja and a long aromatic chong many moons ago. This twelve doesn't have the same spirit for me (or I've moved on, who knows?) and relies a lot on pretty hackneyed samples and rhythms we've all heard a great deal from this producer without bringing anything particularly new to the table. The TGU/Goa-style vocal edits are actually the best bit and he uses them far too sparingly as they briefly bring a real peaceful and spiritual vibe to what is otherwise a pretty mundane tune. I like the smattering of tablas too although using the words “Goa” and “tablas” in a sole review has probably frightened off the vast majority of readers by now. The other side literally bores the living shit out of me and the others here, I've never seen Business Lady look as depressed as this, her mascara is sliding off in despair. Possibly the dullest piece of “dubstep” I've heard in a long time. Neither has the menace, power and dread of people like Scorn or the hypnotic spirit of the best UK pioneers. Sorry, this is a well produced but ultimately limp effort. Hopefully the ill-conceived Burial comparisons will have completely ceased by now, this chap ain't a minuscule patch on our Will.
