Product Description

Amazon.ca

When prolific beat junkie Scott Herren is at the top of his game, he's a musical mad scientist splicing and dicing multiple genres together to craft tunes that are a heady mixture of head-nodding beats and hedonistic pleasure-textures. And right off the bat, on track two, "With Dirt and Two Texts," it's clear that Screenings is a return to form for Herren. Imagine Boards of Canada in love with hip-hop; that's what you have here. There is very little guest vocalizing this time; it's more of a "background" album, in the best sense. The whole thing buzzes with the blurry experimentation of Herren's Savath and Savalas side project, but it always remains grounded in a solid click-hop groove. --Mike McGonigal

5.0 out of 5 stars At it again. Feb. 13 2006
By NOFORM™ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mr. Herren shows us once again, he is at the top of his game. You could say this album is a lot like a Delarosa and Prefuse merge. Songs like Keeping Up With Your Quota, Weight Watchers, Creating Cynical Headaches & With Dirt and Two Texts (Later Version...) offer a slightly new Prefuse style while songs like Matrimonoids bring us back to the One Word days. Not many people liked "Surrounded By Silence", I personally thought it was very good. This cd is very different from the rest; visually and emotionally. You can definately assume Herren makes music visually. Time being his canvas, Sound being his medium. This album, like Herren's others, are for a specific crowd of music listners.... I don't see why people were turned off by his last album having many "guest appearences". Are people afraid of collaboration? Just listen to Herrens music and you'll hear what he feels. Listen to each of his prefuse albums one after the other, you'll hear the evolution of Prefuse's style. I like to see things evolve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Gem Feb. 17 2006
By lokey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am never disappointed by each new song that this man produces, not to mention the album as a whole, and the order in which he puts all these tasty morsels. Not a huge departure from what we're all familiar with, however, he appears to be leaning more toward the melodic and songstyling over the expermental noise drops - I think he's got that down pat! All good.

4.0 out of 5 stars LXIII is 63, not 73 Feb. 26 2006
By D. Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is good, but not as great as some of his previous works under the Prefuse moniker or otherwise. Unlike many, I felt Silence was a great album, and received too much flak for not being Extinguisher Pt. 2 (3 if you count Extinguished).

I must admit I didn't get "Creating Cyclical Headaches," which I feel is almost unlistenable, save for the bits at the beginning and very end; which is too bad because I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement when I saw that it was a collaboration with Four Tet.
5.0 out of 5 stars A classic Aug. 15 2012
By Blake Hulbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I find Security Screenings to be a very inventive and original album, I've had it more than a year and I'm still listening to it, it never gets old! Some songs on the CD are okay and one is completely unlistenable "Creating Cyclical Headaches". But most notable on the CD is "With Dirt And Two Texts - Afternoon Version", "When The Grip Lets You Go", "With Dirt And Two Texts - Later Version With Love" these three are genius and I can't stop listening to them!

If you like music you should buy this CD.
4.0 out of 5 stars Prefuse 73 - Security Screenings May 5 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After the more lyric-heavy _Surrounded By Silence_, Prefuse 73 returns to his roots somewhat with _Security Screenings_, with a slight post-rock twist (as if the appearance of Kieran Hebden on the squeal-heavy "Creating Cyclical Headaches" wasn't a hint). "With Dirt and Two Texts" adds some feedback fuzz into the musical fray and reappears later in a slightly less abrasive mix, while "Keeping Up With Your Quota" fills the air with its layers. "Another One Long Gone" slides along with fluttering vocal samples and a chunky bassline. There are a few head-scratches, as well: "No Origin" seems all over the place, never quite comfortable with itself, and the wobbly "Mud in Your Mouth" doesn't quite gel. But "Matrimonioids" gets things back on their feet quite ably.
