“Nearly three years in the making, the deeply personal “Inspiration Information” was the culmination of Shuggie’s intense self-imposed apprenticeship, a genuinely visionary song cycle that featured primitive but soulful drum-machine meditations (“Aht uh Mi Hed,” “XL-30”), satiny pop orchestration backing shrewd jazz guitar (“Rainy Day”) and suitelike funky dance music that glides from a roots-reggae backbeat to swirling Love Unlimited-style strings (“Not Available”). Insatiable as it was, the album foretold several pop music developments to come: soulful auteurism, D.I.Y.-style recording, organic computer music.”
