Adam Miller I am generally attracted to anything that sounds remotely like the cinematic sound of Little People, so this album was right up my alley. It has such a great mixture of samples that gives each track its own distinct feel, while still retaining a great overall feeling of nostalgia. A necessary purchase if you are a fan of artists like DJ Shadow and Little People. Favorite track: Sunday.

    Hands down, one of the best instrumental hip-hop records in years.
    It’s layers of moods, styles and textures will overload your senses.
    — Eddie Fleisher, ALTERNATIVE PRESS, May, 2008.

    Metaform takes the listener on an audible journey that few other
    Producers are capable. — Jason Kordich, JIVE, April, 2008.

    Rocking a soulful, but edgy approach to vinyl digging and production, Metaform drops an eminently listenable, head-bobbing excursion here. Sweet sax drops, chest-thumping bass and whomping percussion direct the buzzy, crackling grooves. Cinematic and addictive, like Dj Shadow at his best.
    — Jim Tremayne, DJ TIMES, July, 2008.
