Album Review: Out Of Breach (Manchester's Revenge) by Mu

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Unless you're a shady label owner ("Tigerbastard"), an exploitative media land-shark ("Stop Bothering Michael Jackson"), an eBay pirate ("I'm Coming to Get You"), a cowardly DJ ("Like a Little B*tch"), a person who cuts in line at a money-exchange counter ("Extreme"), or a hater ("Haters"), there's no reason to feel truly antagonized by the second album from husband-wife duo Maurice Fulton (instruments, production) and Mutsumi Kanamori (vocals, "body fluids"). Out of Breach isn't much different from 2003's Afro Finger and Gel, flitting between left-field house that is remotely danceable and bracingly atonal sheets of noise, often within the span of one track. A couple tracks aren't much more than rewrites of highlights from the previous album, but Fulton's combination of programming and live instrumentation is so unique, sounding so little like anything DFA-related or inspired (despite a mutual love for viscous bass, clattering percussion, and handclaps), that it's easy to forgive.

Opinion: Average

Mutsumi's revenge more like it. From the opening licks to her final rant, Mutsumi Fulton (nee Kanamori) lashes out at a laundry list of upsetters on her second release. Maurice Fulton, who produces the music, follows her lead and arranges a jarring collection of beats and discord to maintain Mutsumi's rage. A pretty crazy record.
