Hmm. To many fans of Warp-esque electronica, Luke Vibert is something of a hero - more harnessed than Squarepusher and less self-consciously 'comedy' than Aphex Twin, his dizzying work rate and huge stylistic range have ensured that his latest album is inevitably welcomed with open ears. On 'Lover's Acid', he unwittingly confronts the current trend in classic 303 revivalism, but it has to be said, the album's constant commingling of ubiquitous hip-hop breaks and low-burning acid riffs frequently drifts past halfheartedly where it could be totally deranging the boundaries between old and new. After a while, the rave samples start to grage a little, the 303s seem lack the urgency that made the instrument so important in the first place, and the whole thing sounds, by Vibert's standards, a little on the conservative side. It certainly holds its own, and the production is flawless, but we've heard him do it weirder and better.
