  Squarepusher - Ultravisitor : album review
That Ultravisitor is a continuation of Tom 'Squarepusher' Jenkinson's dedication to the art of the drum and bass, both in its 'live' and sequenced varieties, should come as no surprise.
Ultravisitor isn't the kind of record to let you just ride on the visceral thrust of its ups, or let you drift on autopilot on its downs.
Though nominally composed of 15 tracks, Ultravisitor can be roughly translated as a triptych, where the second and third movements will provide as uncompromising a discussion of musical ideas as you're likely to hear on one extended set.

 SQUAREPUSHER - Ultravisitor
The one difference that 'Ultravisitor' demonstrates in comparison to previous works is his love for the bass guitar, and a notable live feel that, despite its vigour, allows his sequenced brutalism more space to breathe than usual.
Although he has already toyed with these elements before, it's more prolonged on 'Ultravisitor', hence, tracks such as 'Andrei' would be equally at home in a blues or jazz club.
Ultravisitor is exactly what it says on the tin, a hyped-up return to the past.

 XL | CD Reviews | Squarepusher 'Ultravisitor'
But as a synthesist, that is, someone who can turn his love of jazz, electronica and avant-gardes of all stripes into a coherent musical narrative -- he prefers playing hide and seek to letting us pin a tale on him.
His seventh album, "Ultravisitor," is more of the same: moments of quietude interrupted by outbursts of attention-getting virtuosity.
"Ultravisitor" is one of Jenkinson's most extreme albums; the collision of gabba-tempo breakbeats, Jaco Pastorius-style bass runs and oceanic keyboard washes is as rudely constructed as ever.

 The Yale Herald - March 26, 2004 - squarepusher - ultravisitor
Although Ultravisitor manages an impressive number of the former, it ultimately suffers from the same frustrating duality.
On Ultravisitor, Jenkinson's jazz and electronic influences also sit more comfortably together than ever before; "Telluric Piece" and the driving "Tetra-Sync" are excellent fusions of the two styles.
Ultravisitor, the best record of his career, is as close as we can get for now.

 Splendid Magazine reviews Squarepusher: Ultravisitor
Ultravisitor goes out on a bit of a limb, and the result is both earthily organic and beautifully alien.
Though it might be a difficult listen in spots (especially for the rave-ier set), the disc definitely shows Jenkinson stretching his musical limbs, and it's a fascinating sight.
When an artist (especially an electronic musician) puts such an unembellished image of himself on the cover, it's a pretty broad metaphor for his readiness to come out from behind the machines and be seen as human.

 SQUAREPUSHER Ultravisitor
Perhaps his most accessible record to date, Ultravisitor focuses, for the first time since Music Is Rotted One Note, on the musician far more than on the programmer.
Although he retains some of what has made him a household name on the electronic circuit over the last ten years, his more subtle approach serves his musical talent in complete new ways, often highlighting his passion for jazz in similar fashion to Music Is Rotted One Note.
Ultravisitor is the work of a man at peace with his art.

Ultravisitor isn't cohesive but, frankly, I don't care.
Though many of these tracks probably don't belong on the album in the traditional sense, you'll find reasons to listen to them.
If your songs don't fit into some greater framework, they'd better be good enough to stand alone.

 Squarepusher - Ultravisitor - Review - Stylus Magazine
Ultravisitor is the push by Squarepusher away from these pedantic excercises, further pushing into the jazz-influences that invigorated Music is One Rotten Note.
Returning to performance as opposed to programming on Ultravisitor, allows Jenkinson to include audience response in both “Circlewave” and “Tetra-Sync” and thereby reconciles the vacuity of the bedroom producer.
For example, despite sonic similarity to oft-imitated Aphex Twin’s “Heliosphan,” “Ultravisitor” in no way be classified as dance, but will be anyway at your local Border’s store.

 No Ripcord Album Review - Squarepusher - "Ultravisitor"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-30)
Ultravisitor was trailed over the summer in UK and US shows, and earned praise from mainstream and indy media alike.
So Ultravisitor is an album carrying heavy expectation on its back, both amongst the small army of Squarepusher fans and interested bystanders.
Like other great innovator composers, like Stockhausen or even Shoenberg, Jenkinson’s rightful peers, not everything that is commendable is necessarily fun to listen to.

Squarepusher stretches his boundaries in "Ultravisitor," a more mature album that displays all his musical talents.
Squarepusher Tom Jenkinson stares serenely from the cover of "Ultravisitor," as if he's examining whoever is considering buying it.
As such, your enjoyment of this LP depends on your tolerance of generally menacing noise and patience during the many interludes.

 Squarepusher "Ultravisitor" | Music Review | Electronica, Drum-and-bass, Experimental, Jazz | Air Massive
But the fans are waiting and the show must go on, so the Tap copes by staging a performance not of their string of now-nostalgic rock hits from the '70's, but rather an obscure and best-forgotten full album's worth of instrumental jazz-prog-rock centered around long bass solos.
This is what we were thinking half-way through "Ultravisitor." Or to put it another way, after a dozen listens, we pushed the skip button on these tracks time after time, though, eventually, curiosity got the better of us and we went back to listen to them again.
Part of what sets "Ultravisitor" apart is its pseudo-live-recording, with audience whoops and cheers imported into the mix when the music quiets or has just rounded a difficult corner.

Ultravisitor is the title of a album by jazz musician and drum and bass artist Tom Jenkinson, known by his recording alias Squarepusher.
Ultravisitor can be considered a comprehensive overveiw of the many musical styles that Jenkinson visited on his previous albums, but with new, previously unreleased material.
From the drum and bass and acid techno sounds of his first two albums, to the jazz fusion sounds of Music Is Rotted One Note, or the harsh, abrasive sounds of his more recent releases.

Equally out of character for Jenkinson is how inviting Ultravisitor is; instead of requiring a dozen or so listenings to find the melodies and other wondrous sounds, there is enough on the surface to stimulate new listeners and enough bubbling below to keep old fans coming back for more.
If there were no more Squarepusher albums beyond "Ultravisitor," Tom Jenkinson could sleep soundly knowing that he created the album of a lifetime.
Ultravisitor has it all- Manic D'n'B Ragga forms, from simple to complex melodic structures, Classical/ funk/and hiphop bass playing!!

Om det var förövningen är "Ultravisitor" den färdiga slutprodukten.
För även om "Ultravisitor" känns lite lugnare än många andra Squarepusher-skivor finns här stundtals musik som tillhör det mest utmanande han gjort.
"Ultravisitor" visar än en gång att Squarepusher är en artist som envist vägrar slå sig till ro och ständigt söker nya uttryck för sin musik.

And that's just the first few minutes -- what follows is a mixture of jazzy solos, a delicate guitar melody, and a halting ambient pop melody that seems uncertain of where exactly it's supposed to go.
Not a mini-album or an experiment, Ultravisitor showcases Squarepusher's wide aray of sounds, (his technical skill and free flow jams) very well.
Ultravisitor has to be the best release by Squarepusher yet.

 Squarepusher: "Ultravisitor" - derStandard.at/Kultur - Film, Musik und Veranstaltungen
Für viele ist Ultravisitor von Tom Jenkinson alias Squarepusher einfach Lärm, andere wiederum sehen in dem neuen Album die Fortsetzung einer abstrakten und experimentellen Form von Drum'n'Bass, mit Sinn dahinter.
Mit Ultravisitor veröffentlicht Jenkinson nun bereits die siebte Platte beim britischen Label Warp, insgesamt hat er in den acht Jahren bereits neun Alben geschaffen.
Die Lieder auf Ultravisitor gehen nahtlos ineinander über, werden meist angetrieben von einem tonalen Jazz und sind oftmals von Samples johlend entzückter Zuschauer durchzogen.

Sufficed to say that Ultravisitor, his newest release, is a leap from past work for Tom Jenkinson, a.k.a.
Being quite familiar with the Squarepusher catalog, I’d say that Ultravisitor is his most diverse, best-sampled product to date.
It represents several years of hard work and experimentation to find just the right balance between chaos and control.

This is his seventh album for Warp, which can only be described as a full-length epic.
‘Ultravisitor’ takes the live, freeform and bass elements of Squarepusher's music to the next level.
The whole album has a very live, personal feel to it - no doubt it is partially inspired by the phenomenal reactions Tom receives for his rejuvenating live shows.

 nthposition online magazine: Ultravisitor by Squarepusher
In earlier albums like Busy, Curious, Thirsty, this tended to be expressed as a tension between the two approaches within the music itself.
Increasingly, though, different tracks on his albums have veered between the two facets, and so it is with Ultravisitor.
I find Squarepusher's approach to the dichotomy far less appealing than that of Spring Heel Jack, another electronica/drum and bass creator with an interest in jazz.

Whilst Aphex Twin is narcotically menacing and Amon Tobin is slickly sinster, Squarepusher simply goes for the throat with mayhem yet inspires insanely rich melodies.
Ultravisitor has Jenkinson all polished up and encompassing all his tricks.
The title track sounds like a large metallic cathedral, with bats crashing into the walls as the organ pirouettes like a reformed techno, comparable to his debut sound which was manic and obsessive.

So, "Ultravisitor" works for me because it's the atonal scrape jazz drill blast of "Feed Me Weird Things" with the weirdness and flow of "Music is Rotted One Note".
