Published October 02, 2003.Matmos Civil War(Matador)To follow up their acclaimed tribute to medical science, A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Heal, the duo that is Matmos decided to sample a more organic audio palette for Civil War. Mixing sounds as well as eras, Matmos creates a strangely cohesive album that pays tribute to medieval England and 19th century America. While Civil War does not approach the genius of A Chance to Cut..., there are some tracks that reward multiple listens like “Reconstruction”, “Pelt and Holler” and a great rethinking of “Stars and Stripes” —Neil Fraser
