It's been eight years since this album was released, and it could be the last "proper" CD produced by the band. If that's the case, it's a shame, but it means they left on a high note. Although the title track has been (over) used by the telecomms industry, and so may grate on the ears, the rest of the album will be less familiar and needs discovering. The style is a unique kind of British rap; less aggressive than its US counterpart, and dare I say it, more intelligent. Superb backing vocals and some interesting use of samples weave around the words...

After watching the advert for 'indie' music of the 90's, including Stone Roses, Manics and Stereo Mc's, I decided to come onto Amazon, to listen to the album previews.
Impressed with the music, I ordered it and the album is a hit with me. Starting with the famous 'Connected', the album can only get better - following with 'Ground Level' (my favourite track) 'Sketch' and 'Step It Up' the whole set up is really good.
I was suprised at first to be drawn to what I thought was British Hip-Hop, but then again, I've always been influenced by the songs, not the style. This collection is quite impressive, using Rob's slight Manchester accent as vocals and the back-up singers Coffey, and the rest of them.
I'm just sorry I can't recommend this to a style related music shopper, because everyone could like it, and some might not. I did.

Awesome album and totally underrated. Almost any music lover will recognise the album title track but its the rest of the album that earns it legendary status in my opinion. Creation is one of my alltime favourite tracks and id say that Step It Up, Ground Level and The End are some of the best british beats of the time, songs that enter easily into the listeners mind. On the first listen of the album i had to check to see if the track had changed a few times as the flow of the album is second to none, each track glides into the next. The albums awesome but not for everybody, but im only saying that because i know some people dont like the album. If you are going to listen to Stereo MCs though, listen to this album first, not Deep Down n dirty which in my opinion is a bit of a darker album.

This is the album that really bought the MC's message home to most people. There is no track that is not as good as the rest. They are all spot on. I only brought it recently, but I can still remember "Step It Up" very well from a nightclub I used to frequent when, or more probably soon after, that single was released. Rob Birch is clearly a genius. I know what my IQ is, I've had it tested on several occasions. Yet this guy is still smarter, and he knows it, too;

"...'cause every moment counts
as the watchdog waits to pounce
but he ain't smart as me"

The backing vocals, though clearly orchestrated by Mr. Birch or the hardcore of the MC's (Rob Coffey, The Head) are spot on. Everything anyone does to this album, at any point, just makes it a better experience and a more brilliant ride. The other MC's, and the backing ladies are, at the least, highly intelligent, and maybe geniuses too. I never get tired of listening to this stunning album, especially when I get the picture.

Highlighting one record out of thousands in my collection(big head) is no easy task but the STEREO MCS/CONNECTED is an instant easy choice,and has been for the last 14 years(or something ).The best tunes on this lp are undoubtedly the last two,'creation,'and 'the end.' Both sublime.As an all-time classic ,the rest of the album is obviously magnificent with the first of two singles released of it,'connected,' being the worst song on it.Not a bad indictment on a track seen by most as an anthem.'Fade Away' is THE best modern-day motown/baggy tune youve ever heard and is an effortless floorfiller.With its martha reeves/jbs style killer- tune and immaculate, sharp, baggy vocals,spliced with that archetypal gospel backing vocal we all love. If you want some classy,unforgetable,euphoric tunes to impress the ladies or just your mates,regardless of age,type of music you're normally into,just get this.For boozing,dancing,smoking and schmoozin,or even driving(creations a tremendous driving track) this albums always going to be ace.Please excuse my use of cliches,and seemingly sick-inducing exaggeration,and believe my cringe-worthy review.Tight,funky,classy masterpiece.
