Boomkat Product Review:
This album kills us, every time.
Nostalgic pop (think Prefab, Scritti) tangled around a stripped and shimmering UKG backbone - there was basically nothing like it in 2004, and nothing like it now, almost two decades later.
To stick with the journalistic consensus and give away the essence of "last exit", you have a whirlpool of influences, from Depeche Mode through to Timbaland, Maurizio and the Basic Channel legacy >> New Order, Throbbing Gristle, King Tubby, Sakamoto through to El-B and Kode9. Hard to think of many other records that injected so much life into the so called underground at the time.
File under: classic.
