Hello Everything/Just a Souvenir are so good practically no one here can even handle it.  Prob his best works up until that point, and right when the watmm general consensus seemed to sour towards his work.  Ridiculous!  I actually kind of forgot Damogen Furies and haven't really gotten into Ufablulum... but those are MY short-comings.   Tom never lost it.

Differences of opinions and all ... but I really do not appreciate the track A Real Woman .

I am a big SP fan and am at ease with the fact that due to his exploratory tendencies it's unlikely I will enjoy all his work .. but some of the tunes on that album I do not get - at all.

The HO through shoebaleader period is my least favourite stretch for Tom and i saw him live twice in that time lol and never again .

Oh it is.  But that Squarepusher track is excellent in spite of its effects on me.

lol.

 

I think overall Hello Everything is him at his best. Although I love pretty much all his albums and there are moments on say go Go Plastic and Ultravisitor that are my favorite SP moments, overall as an album Hello Everything is his best. Just the right mix of bonkers electronics and bass guitar... there is a layer of polish on the album not on any other IMO. Oh and it's properly mastered too which helps (looking at you Damaged Furries alboom).

 

I WISH we could get a "Hello Everything 2".

I recall the production on that album being pretty raw, but in a good way.  I wouldn't really call it polished... but it's been a long time since I listened.  I think it has it's own very well defined aesthetic, as do most of his albums.  Damn it, now I'm going to have to go through the Squarepusher discography to solidify my opinion... ffuuuuuuuuu  :wtf:

This is why I almost never get around to hearing new music.

I quite liked Damogen Furies and prefer it over Ufabulum. "Baltang Ort" is great as is "Kwang Bass." Love the noisy stuff. His set at Day for Night was killer.

Ditto here. Did Go Plastic, Ufabulum and Damogen Furies last night, it was splendid.

I haven't really listened much to Ufabulum or it's accompanying EP, but daaaaang Damogen Furies was excellent; and Shobaleader stuff is a nice change of pace from the usual routine; the only album of Tom's I've really had trouble with is Solo Electric Bass Vol 1
