After a silent 5 years, Davis has released a wonderful new record filled with his nostalgic trip-hop, a new sense of rock n roll and smooth ambience. The Less You Know, The Better seems to be DJ Shadow's cry out to widespread scene of shitty electronic music and failed amateur attempts at creating sampled music. There is definitely a great message behind what he has created. "The Less You Know, The Better" is a statement on it's own. DJ Shadow has integrated some of the greater talents in the industry to better exemplify this in the record. He has found artists that have sought out an experimental edge with a purpose and goal in mind. Included are Little Drangon's Yukimi Nagano, Tom Vek and Talib Kweli. enjoy
