Album Review

Oakenfold a producer? Well, he may not release much other than mix albums (exceptions being the Swordfish soundtrack and scattered singles), but Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne once formed one of the most highly touted remixing teams in dance music — though Perfecto is now known to British teenagers strictly as a label, not a sound aesthetic. So when a man who's not only the biggest DJ on earth but the producer of one of the greatest LPs of the '90s (Happy Mondays' Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches) finally decides to turn in a full production LP, notice must be paid. Unfortunately, Oakenfold isn't much of a pioneer any more, and though it's clear his ear for a solid production hasn't deserted him, Bunkka sees him following the trends instead of pushing them. With a new partner, Andy Gray, Oakenfold shows often that he has the production gloss all taken care of, but track after track here tries, and fails, to capitalize on a familiar sound or a style, from stylish big-beat pastiche ("Ready Steady Go") to robotic experimentalism à la Radiohead ("Motion," with Grant Lee Phillips) to evocative female singer/songwriter electronica ("Southern Sun," "Hypnotised," "Hold Your Hand"). A pair of hip-hop tracks, the sublime "Starry-Eyed Surprise" and Ice Cube's hardcore "Get Em Up," are great productions, but "Zoo York" and the Hunter S. Thompson spoken-word feature "Nixon's Spirit" are potted examples of the very blandest ethnic fusion. With so much attention being paid to the production, the songs, unfortunately, just can't compete.

The Legend At Work

This is oakey at his best I had this album when it was first released and have just rediscoverd the genius of the man himself not quite sure where his most recent work fits in with his well deserved reputation his collaborations with britney murphey and pharrell arn't what you would expect it lacks in heart and even orginality in some areas especially faster kill pussycat with a very deep dish based riff reminisant of flashdance but in my opinion at the moment if you want the best oakey source his old stuff the Swordfish Soundtrack is a good example of a good listen Oakenfold style.

Nice Work

Hey, im loving Southern Sun and Starry Eyed Surprise .... my two fave songs by far, gr8 album tho, keep it up paul!
