    <b> Luke Vibert </b> - Lover's Acid

    'Lover's Acid' is a compilation of tracks that Vibert has released on 12" on Planet Mu over the last five years. It's perhaps surprising, then, that it flows so well and features a balance and depth lacking from all too many artist albums. The overriding influence is, obviously, acid but the abundance of ideas and skill with which they are pulled off is staggering. The highlights include opening cut 'Funky Acid Stuff' which is based around a snatch of classic rare groove. 'Analord', where a bubbling acid line continuously threatens to boil over but is just about kept in check: and 'Acid2000' which harks back to early-'90s breakbeat hardcore and also features a cheeky sample from Indeep's 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life'.
