5.0 out of 5 stars The epitome of "Cool". 16 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The album is stunning. Read on...
Firstly, In case you think you're not familiar with the Propellerheads, you are. 'Spybreak!' was the used in the lobby scene in 'The Matrix'. An instrumental version of 'History Repeating' is the theme tune to 'So Graham Norton'. Another Props song, 'Crash!', was the used in the recent Austin Powers movie. In addition, I've noticed several tracks on this album used on a TV programme or advert.
But that's because this album is overflowing with style. The front cover reflects the spy mood in tracks like 'Spybreak!', 'OHMSS' and 'Take California'.
That doesn't speak for the whole album though; 'Velvet Pants' and '360 Degrees (Oh Yeah)' are totally different in style, yet equally cool in style too. 'A Number of Microphones' is a 40 second human beat-box, where-as 'OHMSS' a 10 minute remix of the orchestral theme from the bond movie. The choice of samples also brings an element of humour to many of the tracks.
You'd be forgiven for thinking some of the tracks on this album are fillers. Particularly 'Better?', 'Cominagetcha' and 'Winning Style'; but they're definitely not fillers. These tracks would be a centrepiece of any other electronic artist's album, but they only seem tame when compared to the many outstanding A-sides on 'Decksanddrumsandrockandroll'.
Indeed, if you swapped these three tracks for 'Crash!, 'Super Bon Bon' and 'Dive' the album could be called 'Propellerheads Greatest Hits' - there is so much variety and so many perfect tunes, including the three tracks featuring other famous artists (De la Soul on '360 Degrees', Jungle Brothers on 'You Want It back' and Shirley Bassey on 'History Repeating').
Clearly I can't preach enough good about this album. If you buy it, you're life (and taste in music) will be improved.
Promise.

Format:Audio CD
Every so often, an album of truly funky genius pops up and makes you want to write a movie just to set scenes to the songs. Unfortunately for anyone just arriving at the Propellerheads' seminal work, you've largely been beaten to it. Rarely a year goes by when there's no film released with at least a few bars from this album hidden away on it.

Where, to give just one example, would The Matrix have been without Spybreak to accompany the excellent `Government Lobby' scene?

This album shines from the opening bars of Take California, right through to the Jungle Brothers' remix of the same track (though cleverly renamed `You Want It Back') over an hour later. There are some lull's, but never a moment when you are not being taken on a tour of how funky Drum `n' Bass really should be. Shirley Bassey cameos on `History Repeating' and there's some fabulously reworked Bond-theme insanity in `On Her Majesty's Secret Service', but all in all, it's just a solid, original great piece of work.

Not being a huge dance fan myself, I still firmly maintain that this album, along with Roni Size's `New Forms' and Faithless' `Reverence' form a holy trinity of must-own dance music genius.

Buy it. I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best breakbeat album... ever! 28 Nov 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Always wanted to have this edition with the add ons that the European and Japanese editions didn't have. It is my favourite breakbeat album and it's just a shame it's Propellerheads only album. Great for breakbeat, groove, electronica and dare I say even for trip-hop lovers!
