EDITORS’ NOTES

From the very first beat of Fatboy Slim's second album, we're confronted with a wall of sound every bit as impressive as the cover's floor-to-ceiling shelves of wax. Strings, sitar, and pummeling drums are just the beginning: Norman Cook's sampledelic bag of tricks includes rock 'n' roll twang, backmasked guitars, hip-hop breaks, funk horns, acid bass, and more swear words than you could shake a stick at. That impish spirit helped him woo American audiences back when electronic music was still taboo, and it keeps his cheeky breakbeat escapades sounding vital years later.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

A true classic

An amazing album that needs to be listened to start to finish. Perfect example of how to combine acid and breakbeats sound. If you enjoy, or more importantly make, electronic music then you need to study this album.
