9/10 Andrew Customer review, 29th September 2014

This is a real landmark LP, not so much in the career of NOW, as I think their key album is Smokers Delight, but rather a landmark in terms of the Northen bleep era and Warp records. Whilst not the first album on Warp, it felt significant as it seemed to symbolise a shift from one off singles to having artists who looked likely to lay down more of a foundation for a substantial career. The fact that you got a pack of NOW branded rolling papers with the album should have signified the shift they were to take.

So to the music, well you have a bonafide classic in Aftermath, its main Ingredient sample twisting round and round the bleeps and the bass, offset by the spooky wail of the 'Unreal' vocal loop. But you probably know that track, so what else is there? There is the minimal bleep of Dextrous, the electro funk of Biofeedback, and the techno shuffle of 'A Case Of Funk'. Of course there is the first sight of Nights Interlude, that we saw repeated in later albums.

What makes this reissue so worth having is the 3 bonus tracks not previously included on the vinyl press. For completists this makes it worthwhile, for casual fans it just provides 3 more good reasons to buy.
