It seems that increasingly in the world of drum & bass, actual drum pattern programming skills have given way to a sort of "my bassline is fatter than yours, so F.U" type mentality. Now, although we all love the big rollers and dance floor heavy hitters, it can get a bit tired when the same drum loop is used essentially without change through the whole track.
Enter PLUG, aka luke vibert. This album is our saviour, turning that paradigm on its head and giving it the finger.
The album is like a refreshing breeze. Most of it is a joy to listen to, invoking memories of earlier 90's jungle goodness while at the same time managing to sound modern and original, even if the album is 5 years old. The emphasis of this album is firmly placed on the beats, which skitter around all over the place, constantly changing and evolving, never getting tired. While the emphasis is on the beats, the other elements of the music have definitly not been neglected, and provide a very rich and entertaining listen.
Comparisons have been made to squarepusher, which I find a bit far fetched, although it is possible to see where these come from. The programming on this cD is excellent, but not quite up to the standard of squarepusher. This is a hard comparison to make however, as the two styles are completely different, save a few hazy similarities. Most of squarepusher's work is a lot more grinding and 'in your face' than this album. Perhaps the squarepusher effort most closely resembling this cD would be Music is Rotted.., but even this is a very loose comparison.
You should give this album a listen.

This is easily one of the most amazing and fantastic electronic albums ever released. The drum programming is simply ingenious, rivaling Squarepusher for sheer originality and complexity. The sampling is remarkable, sometimes creepy, sometimes beautiful, sometimes hysterical...in fact I found myself laughing outloud numerous times during this cd. I'm a huge Luke Vibert fan as it is, and I suppose this is what you would expect from his brilliant reworking of the drum and bass genre. I also find this gem to be among the best albums for stoners ever released. You will never listen to music, especially drum and bass, the same way after listening to this in that state of mind, let me tell you.
Also let me just say that the second cd included in here, several plug e.p.'s, is just as good, if not better in spots, than the actual album itself.
Favorite tracks - "Delicious" (an absolutely stunning track, check out the vocal samples), "Military Jazz", "Maker of All", the title track, and the two mixes of "Cheesy". Not to mention the first four untitled tracks of the second cd, which is some of the most inventive music I have ever heard. BUY THIS ALBUM...GOOD GOD!

It's funny how much consensus their typically is in the drum n' bass community regarding what are/are not classic albums. Although normally subsumed into the second rank of performers by many (i.e. behind Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Amon Tobin, etc.) Luke Vibert (Plug, Wagon Christ) on this book puts together an album of uncommon ability that has managed to stay both current and, well, brilliant over a couple of years.....
This is not dance music. If you generally have liked the d n'b / jungle/house stuff that can almost be danced to (Goldie and Roni Size come to mind) this is going to be a disappointment: it's a heady, minimalist album that relies on the listener pretty much just sitting and focusing. It's a brilliant album, though. If someone likes Photek's old stuff or Amon Tobin or even some of the other more jazzy Ninja Tune stuff (Cinematic Orchestra) this probably is a worthwhile buy.....

This album is so good. Every track is a masterclass in how to arrange and edit material into dense, exhilirating music. Squelchy bass lines bounce off the walls, keyboards caress, differently-rhythmed drums are layered one on top of the other to produce music that is impossibly hectic, and each track is identified by a voice sample particular to it ("What am I saying? I'm not even Chinese"). Cartoon-like, yes, but also very beautiful, 'dark' even, in places. The bonus cd is just as good: the two tracks entitled "cheesy" will bring a smile to anyone who listens, the untitled tracks are chaotic, maverick early jungle tunes, and the final two or three tracks are very long d'n'b 'workouts', similar in feel to 'papa'. Drum 'n' bass is effectively over in the UK, and this album isn't likely ever to be bettered.

The other day while I was driving, I was listening to Plug's "Drum and Bass for Papa" and I found myself cracking up. I thought, "You know, this guy's really funny, he's so.....agro-like." It's like, what exactly is he trying to convey with his music? What is Plug doing? And why? Some of the songs are so amazing, like <maker of all>, it's like drinking Jolt, running, swimming, playing badminton, loosing a game of chess, and solving a word problem. Next to his good friend Aphex Twin, (special note: I'm not actually comparing him to Aphex) this guy has to be one of the most crazed psychofunked musicmaking soul-brothers out there. Directions: Listen to his music once daily for emotional balance and eat Doritos simultaneously. Please clean ears before listening. Thank you.
