A masterpiece of sampling, Since I Left You challenged norms of authorship and genre in its determination to appreciate the creative potential of appropriation art. The Avalanches showed about as well as can be that a sample cut away from its origin can be made to do wonderful things in a new context. In other words: this is a charming, humorous and exquisitely-curated and composed piece of work.

Phil's original review from back in the day where he appears to just discuss one song.
The Avalanches are about to get absolutely enormous with their new single which is destined to chart as it's been caned to death on the radio and MTV. It's a 70's flute tastic affair with a Motowny type vocals thing happening. Since I Left You annoyed the hell out of me at first but I have warmed to it's ample charms
