Form & Function Volume 2 songs Product Information
Form & Function Volume 2 album for sale by Photek Productions was released Apr 14, 2009 on the Sanctuary Records Fontana label. This album is something of a curiosity. Form & Function Volume 2 buy CD music Coming ten years after the first Form & Function, it is, like its predecessor, primarily a collection of previously issued but relatively rare material. Form & Function Volume 2 songs It sounds like the grab bag that it is: "Love & War" and "Things" are both actual songs, featuring vocalists Chiara and Robert Owens, respectively, and in both cases the songs are pleasant enough but the frenetic drum'n'bass breakbeats feel a bit like they've been artificially pasted on -- though that's more true of the former track than of the edgy, heavily dub-inflected latter. Form & Function Volume 2 album for sale It's on the "Teebee Remix" of "Ni Ten Ichi Ryu" that Photek's real genius starts to shine through; rhythmic and textural subtlety are not usually hallmarks of the drum'n'bass genre, but when they're present the results can be electrifying, and that's the case here. Form & Function Volume 2 CD music Unfortunately, on "Saturated Hip Hop" the typical weaknesses of the genre come to the fore as well: three good but slight ideas (a sharp and complex rhythm, a bassline that sounds like it's being played by a bodhran, a clattery backing loop) are made to carry far too much weight for far too long a time. Form & Function Volume 2 buy CD music Other tracks span the spectrum from brilliant to mediocre: "Full Spectrum Dominance" is unsubtle but works well anyway; "Man Down" makes nice use of creepy military found-sound vocals; "The Beginning" spends five minutes going nowhere. Fans will want it; newcomers may want to start with the previous installment and then proceed as they deem necessary. ~ Rick Anderson.
