AllMusic Review by

Simon Green's debut single and subsequent Animal Magic album for Tru Thoughts drew the attention of such heavyweights as XL and Mute, though it was his eventual defection to Ninja Tune and the subsequent reissue of the long-player that brought him to the attention of the masses. This interim offering preempted his sophomore album for Ninja and sees his original label collate an album of his work as both a remixer and remixee, opening with his take of Stuart Cullen's sublime "Turtle," with Green wisely retaining its signature whistle while rounding off the beats a little and throwing in some gentle keyboard parts for more flavor. Thoughts compadres Quantic and Jon Kennedy get a look in, though it's Green's own work which receives the props; the inclusion of the singles "Dismantling Frank," "The Sicilian," "Magicman," and "Scuba" only reinforce a great album that works in its own right.
