Product Description

Product Description

FATBOY SLIM Palookaville (2004 UK 12-track CD album including the single Slash Dot Dash and featuring collaborations with Damon Albarn Lateef [Latyrx] and DJ Shadow's Quannum Collective Bootsy Collins Justin Robertson and Brighton band JohnnyQuality. Complete with picture sleeve booklet BRASSIC29CD)

Amazon.co.uk

Working with Blur on their Think Tank album clearly made an impact on Norman Cook. Palookaville, his fourth outing as cartoon dance hero Fatboy Slim, has a distinctly beatnik theme running through it. It also relies more on real instruments and proper songs, rather than Cook's laptop and fun floor fillers, swapping instant thrills for something longer lasting. That said it's unmistakably a Fatboy Slim record, and a pretty phenomenal one at that.

The trademark beach party anthems are still there. The Latino shake of "Wonderful Night", "El Bebe Masoquista"'s electro-funk and single "Slash Dot Dash" with its snarling surf guitar all prove that there's life in Bigbeat yet. But it's the mellower tracks that stand-up to constant rewinds. "North West Three", a dreamy twilight tune dedicated to wife Zoe Ball, is a gorgeously romantic swayer and plinky hobo ditty "Put It Back Together" delivers a ramshackle shot of optimism in the Think Tank style, complete with a drowsy Damon Albarn. Meanwhile, "Long Way From Home"--the moody sub-bass rumble from the O2 ad--and road movie rocker "Push and Shove" find the middle ground and demonstrate that Cook's imagination is as active as ever.

All the usual cut'n'paste musical bric-a-brac's there. All the wackiness and cool grooves remain. It's just that this time they sound just as good in the living room as they do on the dance-floor. --Dan Gennoe

Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, has been quoted as saying he is 'comfortable' with this album - he usually hates his records once he has finished creating them. As a single word description of an album, this is pretty apt.
More live instruments and celebrity collaboraters and vocalists give this album more rounded edges and feelgood factor than the previous Fatboy albums and at the same time I think a little bit less raw excitement. There are no tracks which would make you jump on the dance floor at the first few bars, but (a few swear words apart) you wouldn't mind your kids listening to it - in fact mine are singing the sample from "Don't Let The Man Get You Down" right now!
I personally can't get Bootsie Collins's vocals from "The Joker" out of my head - several people have been surprised by me telling them I love their peaches and can I shake their tree! Altogether a 'slow burner' that I have been listening to every day and getting into more each time.

Cool is the only word I can think of to describe this. The album manages to capture all the best bits of all the Fat Boy Slim albums to date while injecting a freshness that only FBS can.
The CD starts with a 'Between the Gutter and the Stars' style track and then shoots straight into 'Slash Dot Dash' (a la 'You've come a long way baby'). The tracks then manage to move from Big Beat to chill-out seamlessly making it the perfect CD for any occasion.
My highlight though is the album's finish.... a beautiful version of Steve Miller's 'The Joker' - VERY nicely done!
Buy this CD. You won't be disapointed.

A very good album, but not one that I regularly choose to listen to all the way through. There are some Fatboy Slim classics - Don't Let The Man Get You Down, North West Three and the marvellous cover of The Joker being three of the standout tracks. Then there are those which are just great music, such as Song For Chesh, Long Way From Home and Wonderful Night. The majority of the album falls into this category in fact. But there are some tracks that are good but you just won't want to listen to too often. Jin Go Lo Ba and Mi Bebe Masoquista fall into this category for me. Slash Dot Dash also suffered from having to be redone at the last minute, as the original voice sample Norman Cook used was a lot more appealing and generally less grating and annoying than the one he had to opt for. Overall there are no bad tracks, but some have a lot more lasting appeal than others. Definitely Fatboy Slim's weakest album but still very good nonetheless.

each track will be reveiwed
1) dont let the man get you down. - dont be fooled by its easy going outlook its professionally put together and will get you swaying but not dancing
2) slash dot dash - you will either love it or hate it. i like it but can see how it gets annoying.
3) wonderful night - a filler
4) long way from home - o2 advert tune weird start but failsd to live up to potential
5) put it back together - very solid and quite funky
6) mi bebe masquita - universally accepted as a great track but i dont thinmk its the best. close but no cigar
7) push and shove - another one with weird synth pads very solid
8) north west three - now the album hots up. this is a potent track bvut fairly chilled yet unlike a lot of chilled stuff fat boy has done this works
9) the journey - a swinging beat, great vocals and a bass tahtll have you reeled in like a sticklebaxck. 2nd best on the album
10) jin go lo ba - potential follow up to his slash dot dash and is better. upbeat and kicks in
11) the best track. worthy of repeat. similar to love island with brilliant pads at the start but not as kicking. still very well executed and smooth. phenomenal
12) the joker - you are having a giraffe? this is poor and should have been left out. just as he gets several good traxx under his belt he does this.
the album is not perfect but better than his last album and marginally better than his first one. noft perfect but there is signs taht he is back to somewhere near his best.
overall 73%

Walking into a major music retailer today at lunchtime to my surprise I see a copy of the Fat Boys New Album on sale for 19.99. What should I do? For the sakes of the rest of the world I should complain to the manger that this CD should not hit the shelves till Monday.
That's what I should do but being a hugh Fat Boy Fans that I am I immediately buy a copy.
I've just listened to it and I have to say that I'm really surprised at how mellow this is. Apart from the tracks Slash Dot Dash & Jin Go Lo Ba there is very few club tunes on this album. A more musical journey by Norman so. The song with Damon Alburn called put it back together is enjoyable & song 3 "Wonderful Night" had a catchy rap over it.
This Album reminds me of a mix of all Fat Boy Album from before.
I'm sorry he didn't release it before the summer cause it would have been good to listen to on my balcony.

In the week that saw the burial of dance music on Tim Lovejoys' Allstars SkyOne tv show, a hand reaches up from the grave in true "Carrie" style and its clutching a copy of "Palookaville"!
Fatboy is one of those strange paradoxes: dj as artist..........but unfailingly pulls it off again with a weirdly unpredictable mix of vintage Fatboy (check Don't Let The Man and North West Three), urbane west coast hip hop ( Wonderful Night and The Journey), and 50% rock50%roll (Push and Shove).
This album defies intense analsis, because Fatboy Slim is about having fun and a laugh. Norman Cook has never been in danger of taking the Fatboy too seriously and he's not starting now.
Top Banana award is a split decision between The Journey and Push and Shove, and if The Joker isn't no.1 by xmas then this year must have really ended on a downer! Bootiliscious!!
