  Four Tet - Everything Ecstatic  
Four Tet - Everything Ecstatic

Influences of jazz, big beat, electronic, hip-hop and a general sense of crazy frenticness. This is super-lively and has tons of energy. It’s like a jazz band that discovered electronic and drum & bass, and somehow all that elecricity has transmorphed itself into spazzy beats and crazy chaos. It’s fun too. It sounds like its fun to play.

A noisy tornado cavalcade of sound spiraling into a vortex. Seriously. You might need to take a nap or something after you listen to this, it’ll wear you out. You should listen on bassy speakers, the whole album is full of thick, penetrating bass.

The only negative thing I have to say here is in regards to the second track, Smile Around the Face. It sounds like Mariah Carey on acid and she got lost in the tornado of sound, only to come spiraling back again and again in high-pitched vocal outbursts. The music itself is kinda pop fodder. This is a radio-friendly-unit-shifter to the highest degree, and I’m just not
into it.

RATING: ***** 4 out of 5 stars
