DJ Shadow - Preemptive Strike

I am pretty late on the DJ Shadow bandwagon, but consider me on there now. Shadow makes more than trip-hop albums, he makes complete experiences. Preemptive Strike is an album of Shadow's pre-label material. The four part song "What Does Your Soul Look Like" is basically a progressive rock opus, using the varied sources that Shadow is known for. Jazz, Funk, Rock, Hip Hop, and other bits and pieces are all par for the course. My recommendation wait till night turn off all the lights, turn up the stereo and get ready to travel to where only Shadow can take you. Enjoy.

try Kid Koala if you dont know him. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is nearly a perfect album.

I just heard about DJ Shadow in the past few months.. I still would have been listening to the regurgitated garbage on the radio, if it weren't for the internet.

By george I love the internet. (..and all the generous 'anonymous' inhabitants that share good music)
