Most of the time when I listen to music, I'm walking around to some place, so one thing I really look for in an album is a soundtrack to my day. And I think 'Deadringer' hits that. It's great to hear trip-hop that isn't so overly bleak, from the massive trumpets in 'Ghostwriter', to the sweet sound of optimism and balance in 'Smokes and Mirrors', this is an album you can really listen to. I'll stick out my neck and say this is better than any of DJ Shadow's works, and probably my favourite trip-hop album ever.
