I got a promo for the upcoming Squarepusher album “Go Plastic”, and so far, so good. It isn’t the revolutionary work that many have made it out to be, but it is a damn fine CD. Sometimes you think to yourself that Mr. Jenkinson has run out of new breakbeats and he is reusing ones from prior CDs, but I don’t think it is overbearingly derivative (just a smidge). It is definitely a more aggressive, less jazzy album (compare to the Big Loada EP), but the jazz influences are still there, they have just taken a back seat for awhile. It will take a few more listens before I make a final decision, but I am not disappointed as of yet.
