Album Review

It's nearly impossible to listen to 4 Hero's Two Pages without thinking about the incredible success enjoyed by the jungle movement (and Roni Size's New Forms LP in particular) during the four-year gap which separated Dego and Mark Mac's second album from their third. With LTJ Bukem, the duo were one of the first jungle acts to desert hardcore for the astral drift of jazz-fusion atmospheres, and Two Pages is about as fusion-soaked as it gets. The first of the two discs includes the more downtempo R&B, almost orchestral side of 4 Hero, quite indebted to jazz luminaries like Pharoah Sanders, Lonnie Liston Smith and Roy Ayers. Many of the instruments are live contributions, while vocalists as wide-ranging as poet Ursula Rucker and Digable Planets rapper Butterfly make appearances. The second disc is the dancefloor (read: tighter) half of the album, skirting through dense soundscapes of paranoid breakbeats. As could be expected, more than two hours of music is way too much for listeners to work their way through, and a heavy editing job would have made this a stellar album instead of the flawed and somewhat bloated album it turned out to be. For drum'n'bass fans, the real highlights come with second-disc tracks like "We Who Are Not as Others" and "In the Shadows" — as it is, they're so terrific as to nearly justify purchase by themselves. (The American version of Two Pages edited the album down to fit on a single disc, and also added several tracks not available on the British two-CD version.)

Customer Reviews

Disappointed by this condensed version.

I was disappointed to learn that this CD is a condensed version of a 2CD set (page 1 and page 2). Because of the jumbled nature of the tracks, the impact of the album, which comes from two distinct backgrounds (Drum & Bass) and Soul/Acoustic Funk, is convoluted. I recommend you buy the 2CD set, or request iTunes to offer it. It is a great, epic release, and it doesn't deserve this silly 1CD format.

There is not a better jazzy jungle record out there....

This is an unbelievable record that truly changed the face of not only drum n bass but all electronic music. Dego and Mark Mac created a landmark piece of genius that has stood the test of time. Brilliant jazzy goodness on the first half of the disc and crisp sci-fi beats on the second. Origianlly this was supposed to be a (2) disc set (thus 2 pages) but was released as a single CD in the US. And all this from the same duo that brought you the rave classic 'Mr. Kirk'. All time desert island disc.10 outta 10.

Got Good Music ??

This album has been in my collection since '98. You can play it from start to finish w/o interruption. If you are fan of Drum 'N' Bass and Jazz, this cd is for you. Also, check out 4hero - The Remix Album. Keep Lounging.


Formed: 1989 in Dollis Hill, London, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Consistently on the front lines of the drum'n'bass battleground, the duo of Dego (McFarlane) and Marc Mac (Mark Clair) nevertheless failed to receive the exposure of luminaries like Goldie and Roni Size, mostly because they didn't release much 4hero material during jungle's crucial crossover years, from 1994 through 1997. Despite beginnings in London's hip-hop underground during the mid-'80s, the duo moved into the hardcore/rave scene later in the decade and recorded classics like "Mr. Kirk's Nightmare"...
