EDITORS’ NOTES

Dance music simply doesn't get more boisterous than on Basement Jaxx's rousing second album. House, funk, and UK garage beats meet gospel vocals, carnival chants, and wall-of-sound production influenced by Public Enemy. "Broken Dreams" turns '60s easy listening into surrealistic, futuristic pop, and "Where's Your Head At" audaciously pairs punk and electro, while the sultry "Sfm" adopts Timbaland's slinky shuffle. "Jus 1 Kiss" and "Romeo," meanwhile, are as rowdy as a five-year-old's birthday party. It’s deliriously unhinged from top to bottom.

11 years I've been listening to this album

At about age six my father imported this album on my old-school Mac computer and for the next year I literally only listened to Romeo. It took me a couple years to discover there was a whole album. The entire album is just as good, it's absolutely phenomenal, like liquid gold coming out of your headphones. It's excellent and an album everyone should own.

So good!!!!

One of the best albums ever recorded. pretty much as good as a dance album can get. Still sounds just as fresh today as it did last decade. Viva la Jaxx!
