6/10 Brian Staff review, 01 March 2007I was gonna review the Charlotte Hatherley album but accidentally fell into a coma. Or was it a comma? I'm a punctuation nazi you see. So I'll see if the AUTOKAT album on Akoustik Anarkhy fares any better. Front loading yer album with the single always bodes badly so lets see....the second track is the B-side from the single. So that's two tracks i already know. Good move guys! Yeah. Further investigation provides me with extended intros alternating between a couple of chords. Oh it's an instrumental, tightly executed & airily but ultimately nothing more than incidental music for a short film about a hedgehog pulling bits of string out of it's quills. This is riff led indie by numbers that sounds a bit like The Longcut & a million other semi commercial & blandish bands with little to say. I've heard every chord change a thousand times, the vacuous lyrics about 'a feeling' make me think of Hard-Fi and if it wasn't for the fact the Dalek & Murder by Death albums & virtually everything else I've been given this week had something valid & interesting to say, I'd be thoroughly depressed about this CD. "An emotional & intellectual void" comments our Anthony.
10/10 Marc Customer review, 17th March 2007To be honest I only bought this album on the recommendation of a friend and at first just thought it to be so so. However, after about the 3rd listen i totally fell in love with it and felt obliged to recommend it to as many people as possible. It genuinely is something a little different and the musicianship and breadth of ideas crammed into this album are incredible. Highly recommended!
10/10 Christian Customer review,
I'm really enjoying this album and have seen several positive reviews of it. First album I've bought in a while you can let play from start to finish without skipping. Has a nice flow and diversity to it and the two instrumentals are a nice touch. Can't recommend highly enough.

Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
