Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Fatboy Slim digs deep in the vaults, finds an obscure surf-guitar classic, and with a wave of his big beat wand, "Sliced Tomatoes" by the Just Brothers undergoes a phoenix-like rebirth, emerging as the all-conquering "Rockafeller Skank". Meanwhile, Apollo Four Forty nip down the local Oxfam, and pick out Status Quo's "Caroline". It's the main sample on their Top Ten smash "Don't Stop The Rock". Will this do? Actually, yes. Big beat has a way with making the cheesiest of rock moves seem like God-given dancefloor charm, and much of Gettin' High is a pretty competent, self proclaimed festival of the dumb. No, "Crazee Horse"'s refrain of "I got no remorse / Like a crazee horse" doesn't quite have the same idiot savant ring as "check it out now/ the funk soul brother", but "Lost In Space" has no doubt filled more dancefloors than the rest of the Skint roster put together, which makes Gettin' High pretty hard to knock. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Shot in the arm 8 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This morning I played this for the first time in a year. It's still a blast from start to finish and sounds as fresh as ever. That's the advantage of never being fashionable. It's what pop and rock should be about, sheer good fun with a dash of barmy experimentalism thrown in. In times when the introspective miserablist noodlings of Coldplay and Radiohead are hip, Apollo 440 are a shot in the arm. Predictable this album is not, mixing heavy rock guitar with powerhouse breakbeat drumming, squelches and cascading keyboards. This is a lot less serious sounding than the previous 2 albums, moving away from the trancier vibe towards a sheer rocking out, and all the better for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumph for 440, with a hidden gem. 9 Dec 2000
By C. M.
Format:Audio CD
This album has received a lot of praise (and it deserves every bit of it), but everyone seems to have forgotten the title track 'Getting High on your own Supply' which is simply superb and the best on the album. It sounds as if @440 put together an entire score for a James Bond film, and let an English MC knock himself out, so to speak. Absolutely brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dumb but fun 30 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Dumb cheesy big beat dance music occasionally intercepted by equally dumb cheesy guitar distortion and vocal samples. On paper this album should fall flat on its face and it wouldn't surprise me if most dance purists turn their nose up at this offering.
However for those who can digest distorted guitars, this album is a fun albeit immature listen.
From the dance/rock of 'Lost In Space Theme' to the mellower jazz of 'Machine In The Ghost' and the dumb rap/metal of 'Stadium Parking Lot' as well as other notable mentions in the form of 'Crazee Horse' and the slightly cheesy but equally fun 'Heart go Boom' this album serves up non stop fun. Just don't expect the Kappa wearing Judge Jule fan boy fools to agree with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance becomes good! 9 Feb 2000
Format:Audio CD
I am not normally a dance music fan, (even though they insist they are a rock band) but when I heard "Lost In Space" I loved it, and thought "Stop The Rock" was even better. Some of the tracks, you think "This is really shit" at the start but when they have finished you think "Wow! That was really good!" The great moments on this album are the "How you doin' man?" on "Crazee Horse" and the whole of "Stop The Rock," but in particular "Dancin' like Madonna," and "Check my paranoia." A great album all round. One to certainly rival "The Fat Of The Land" and "You've Come A Long Way, Baby."

4.0 out of 5 stars Another classic Apollo album 29 Oct 1999
Format:Audio CD
'Getting High' has many more tracks with rock elements than their previous two albums. Many of the tracks have previously been available on singles or as reworked remixes. There are a couple of strange tracks as usual such as "Heart go Boom." Fans of Electroglide and Millennium Fever's ambient elements might be disappointed but overall the album is a superb blend of dance and rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing @440 album 17 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the truly weird, rock and strangely wonderful album by everyone's favourite rockstars. Apollo 440 have astounded me with the incredible tracks like "Cold Rock The Mic" and "Stadium Parking Lot". "The Machine in the Ghost" is a weird track with no vocals making it actually quite haunting. Not the best thing to listen early morning though!!!
