    Not all of his music is good, often it was simply acid techno, higly ripetitive and consolidated, but at the same time he did some of the best electronic albums ever, running between different genres every year in the 90'.
    However I can't stand people saying "How he could have done this music!" or "His gear is alien, he used to use modified synths and drum machine"... he wasn't the only one doing it and nothing of that defines his music, instead it's a mixture of skills to write great melodies, soundscapes, rhythms... nothing inconceivable.

    I think he's wal-mart's version of squarepusher. LOL
    HAHAHAHA, I like that one. But in all seriousness, he has accomplished a lot in his career.
    Making the type of music he has made, in this industry, he has come very far and I give him respect.

    But It just doesn't grab my ear that much. Maybe when I was younger it did.

True artistry. Original. And that 10% can change depending on the mood because the work is so deep and varied. But, yeah, for sure, there are some recordings just not on my wavelength and never make it into that 10%... and maybe I do consider those 90% bits over-rated, and the 10% I like for the mood I am in at the time under-rated.
    Tho, john is quite underrated i must say...
