"The path of most resistance
This album was made using a bespoke system which has been in development for over a decade. Fragments of earlier versions of the system have been used on other recordings, but this project is the first occasion where all sounds have been generated and processed exclusively on instruments that I have programmed myself. The initial impetus to develop it came from a need to free myself from the constraints of using off-the-shelf gear and the culture of consumerism that engulfs electronic music making in particular. And I came to see that experimenting with the functionality of instruments helps to cultivate an experimental attitude to composing with them. Indeed, for me the process of designing instruments has become indissociable from composition. All of the recordings on this album were made in a single take with no edits, reflecting the system's orientation towards live performance. It is presented in defiance of the path of least resistance."

Ok, in my eyes almost all of the tracks are too garish, not too noisy, hell of a noisy was Go Spastic, but what kind of noise it was!!! You can hear Jenkinsons skills, hes a bad ass musician, but for me it contains too much of todays EDM character. Prefer his insanity in mentioned Go Spastic or more jazzy stuff that were in his Hard Normal Daddy, which in my eyes is one of the best of his works. And what I could ask him, regarding Damogen Furies, is why didnt you punished and dirted the sound as you did on your previous works mr Jenkinson????? The hell with this sterility!!!! I always tend to say, every sound should be a little yellow, if you know what I mean.

My copy is good, not much surface noise that i noticed. The music sounds excellent, and i dig the reverse tracklisting on this compared to the digital release

"Exjag Nives" has some AFX samples, I can hear "Phlange Phace" as the main breakbeat

This album is amazing. I had become a bit jaded with respect to Squarepusher having seen him live in the past and feeling that his range of sounds and styles had just become familiar to me. Despite my conscious awareness of the quality of his work I found myself not seeking it out. When I saw his performance at Day for Night in 2016 I was shocked. All of the live, practical instrumentation was gone. This was an entirely electronic and exceedingly spontaneous performance driven as much by the gear as it was his ability to move between setups and manage it. I was blown away. I came straight home and picked this up to realize what I had been missing. This is a pivotal and important step in a new direction that I could not be more excited about. This shit is hot like fucking lightning.

It completely blows my mind to see so many fans trashing this album. Damogen Furies is amazing, from start to finish. Some really amazingly dark tunes mixed in with some very creative sounds/tracks. Whatever you're doing Tom, please keep it up. The more experimental you get, the better.

Tom seems to get more than his fair share of "fans" who cry fowl on every single new release. Tom is constantly pushing himself and his gear which is why we first fell in love with him on Weird Things...wasn't it?

The best albums still take you on an emotional journey... suspense, pretty, dreamy, eerie, whatever. Mosty people like music that can be described in emotional terms. Tom's got a lot of good songs to his name, but a lot of them will be forgotten in time as sound pastiche, hurried, player music, not listener music, I had the tape of feed me weard thigns before it went to cd and vynil from an industry mole. Yeah i recall it. today = overuse of grain delay, lack of silence, hurried, farty, grain cloud is 90 percent of his pads, tonal pads are less than 12 percent, harmonic sequences that made him famous are rare, he has lost the plot a bit in terms of rewarding his audience with a balance of the things that gave him fame, which is chords, emotional music, spaced out music... His music studio sounds like a detuned casio with snort and fart-nose blow sounds, zero ambient tracks, zero jazzy... He is an awesome musician but his album covers and synthesizer/arpeggiator/chordal design prowess SOUND like THEY are pathetic and he should go back to playing notes more often. tell duncan i think it's farty. If that's his 10 years of worth on studio design with millions to blow in the persuit of studio and synth designers. His studio description is rediculous and he clearly has developed a lack of interest in pleasing most of his listeners with even a couple of musical humorous and modest tracks. most of all his grain cloud work is pompous and vainglorious.

IM GLAD SQUAREPUSHER IS BACK AND STOPPED DOING SHITTY AND BANAL STUFF SINCE JUST A SOUVENIR. THIS IS A GREAT JOB FOR THE BRAINDACE.

This album surely is a bit difficult to listen to for hardcore Squarepusher fans. (And I feel very sad about this because I feel the same sometimes.) It feels like it was produced with audiophiles in mind. Some songs are truly nice, others feel like a demonstration of Squarepushers skills. I don't think this makes the album bad though. I enjoyed it a lot several times (and will enjoy it even more in the future) because this album is filled with detail and the love for it. The word I've read many times is "brutal" and indeed, this is, in my opinion, the most brutal album Squarepusher has ever released. I'd enjoy to listen to something less brutal in the future though. As the album Ufabulum, Damogen Furies has something very "clean" about it and is definitely pleasing to the ears.

exactly! throughout the chaos there is this red thread which keeps it all together. I still prefer the less noisy style but love the diversity squarepusher provides.

There are the wonderful abstract elements on "Do You Know Squarepusher", namely "F-Train", "Kill Robok", "Conc 2 Symmetriac" as well as "Direct to Mental" taken from "Alive in Japan", which amplifies this even further, which again is reflected on "50 Cycles" on "Ultravisitor", as well as "Steinbolt" on that album, which may be seen as harsh, although I would argue not necessarily in a cruel way.

I have PASSIONATELY loved about 80-85% of Squarepusher releases. This album is such a disappointment. There are two tracks that I enjoy, the rest are "meh", but one track just irritates me. I'm shocked right now. I didn't even spoil it, I waited until my vinyl arrived to hear the tracks for the first time (aside from one track titled Stor Eiglass which made me buy the album). I can't believe that people are giving this 5 stars. Sorry Pusher fans. Preview this album before you purchase it. If someone wants to trade anything for it, give me a shout. Only listened to it twice.

I love this album so much. Easily one of my favourite Squarepusher albums of all.The vinyl tracklisting is the way to go. If you have the CD or a Digital format, I highly suggest reordering them to match the vinyl.

Best Squarepusher album from the last ten years. Not what I expected, but still good tracks.

Here we see Tom doing a sort of return to form from the dark, eerie dubstep of Ufabulum while still retaining that grimy feel. Lots of lovely 303 squelch combined with drum weirdness & a lilting melancholy. If you enjoy TJ's glitchier sound, this album is for you.It seems that gone are the days of the jazz & bass. It's too bad; TJ seemed to be able to meld jazz & insanity like noone else. It's a great LP, just not a great Squarepusher LP.Highlights are "Baltang (Ort/Arg)", "Kwang Bass"(super glitchy & brutal acid insanity), and "Kontenjaz".

This LP takes the darker side from Ufabulum (tracks 6-9), adds a few nods to the most convoluted sounding tracks of the past including “Menelec”, “Kill Robok”, “The Modern Bass Guitar”, then really pushes the extreme of those sort of sounds across an entire LP. Extremely satisfying for people craving the more brutal and glitchy side of Squarepusher, of which he has been fairly modest with in the past. Until now.

Well this one has no fillers/weird moments like "stadium ice" or "red in blue" - and is therefore more coherent than Ufabulum - BUT it has that The Cure cover which is a very bad choice for an opener - which IMO could be the amazing "Exjag Nives" - and THIS sad fact won't make me buy this album, sorry. yeah, I just can't get over it. "youu-hoo...lost and lonely....."....FU*K

Stor Eiglass is actually the final track on the LP version, but the tracks are just in reverse order so Exjag Nives is only 1 track earlier.

Return to (a much harder) form.Heavily percussive album. Not much soul. But I like it just the same.Some hard ravish, almost gabbery vibe with (very) little funkiness thrown in. Shades of (older) Venetian Snares and older Squarepusher.The first track, "Stor Eiglass", is a favorite. Maybe because parts of it sounds (dangerously) like "Just Like Heaven" from The Cure. Not sure if that is a coincidence or a nod. It is the most melodic track of the bunch.Don't play this when your 2 year old is trying to take a nap. :)

This album is pretty cool, you just have to appreciate his current sound and not get stick to the old stuff.

The lofty statement attached to this lp release, cements the moment where Squarepusher crawled up his own anus, locked the door and disappeared for ever. Really awful sounds on this lp, it's all technique and no heart. What a wanker.

Maybe he whittles his own bass guitar from a tree he chops down from his own private forest. Perhaps he forged his own steel in his own custom steel forge and hand wound his own bass strings. Who would buy those common off the shelf consumer goods. Commoners. So lofty and pompous, bereft of joy and emotion. The record itself is full of awful stadium synths, does nothing for me I'm afraid.

Yeah. The inner sleeve touting the "one take" thing put me off. So what?However, I disagree. I do dig the album. I just don't care how he made it.

You got that mixed up. Squarepusher is a musician who does what he wants. The wanker would be the one who gets all anal and posts asinine comments about something he doesn't understand.

And once again poor Tom gets shredded to pieces by his fans. Though i doubt this'll be anyone's favorite SP album, it's still got a few gems. Kwang Bass for example which is my favorite of the bunch. Basically, it features a lovely 303 squelch and Toms trademark IDM/drum and bass style and then subtly evolves into this noisy mess in pure Squarepusher fashion. I would give this three or four stars but since people are rating it on the same level as Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites (which is idiotic) i'll give it five just to even things out.

As a long-time Squarepusher fan, I really can't get behind this new sound of his. I'm all for evolution, but it sounds like he's' stuck on the same few sounds and glitching them out into infinity.Gone is all semblance of jazz/funk that was pervasive in his earlier work. Hey, go ahead and evolve, but man, this new sound is pretty gimmicky. A demonstration of technique, the complete lack of soul here.

I actually really like this album, for me it is his best full-length since Hello Everything. I can totally understand if fans of his older work do not like it though, stylistically it is very different in every possible way. And I'm glad Tom keeps evolving and experimenting, rather than churning out rehashes of his 90s stuff

Yes, it's true. He stuck in the beginning of 2010-s. For example, when I heard "D Frozent arc" for the first time, I was absolutely sure, that it's from "Ufabulum" album and that I has already heard this.It's bad example of self-copying/

I agree with your general sentiment; this is way off from his best work. It's maybe a little incredible, but not my thing. I'm turned off by it for different reasons. I actually quite like noise, if you will, but this work is too polished and processed in the wrong sort of way. It begins to sound a lot like Skrillex, or whatever.
