This was always one of my favourite mid-90s albums, but it was more or less overlooked at the time, and even now I don't think Red Snapper have ever been particularly well-known. This is a pity, because Prince Blimey is a superb album. Its organic blend of jazz, funk, ambient and mid-90s break-beats has aged extremely well indeed, and, despite being a predominantly instrumental album, it deserves to be ranked alongside sample-heavy classics of the era such as Exit Planet Dust, Maxinquaye and Endtroducing DJ Shadow.

Despite the fact that the tracks are quite sparse- structured around Ali Friend's throbbing double bass and Richard Thair's stridently funky drumming- the smoky, atmospheric sound is both varied and textured, through the judicious use of samples, as well as touches of sax and slide guitar. In fact, the musical arrangements are extremely subtle, which prevents the music from ever succumbing to the mind-numbing repetitiveness which damns a lot of mid 90s dance music. Furthermore, there is a great deal of stylistic variety. The opener Crusoe Takes a Trip, with its backwards-sounding bassline and frenetic break-beat, tips a nod to the drum'n'bass prevalent at the time, but still sounds distinctively Red Snapper nonetheless through the eerie keyboards and shrill sax breaks. Get Some Sleep Tiger is fast-paced, straight-ahead 50s jazz, whereas Thomas the Fib and Fatboy's Dust slink along like some kind of mutant jazz/hip-hop crossover, propelled by Friend's pizzicato bass playing. Space Sickness is little more than a (superb) drum solo with minimal arrangement, yet it works perfectly. Even the sole vocal track, The Paranoid, avoids sounding like filler.

Yet another excellent record produced by warp records ... After havin been amazed with all three Nightmares on Wax albums I searched the dance collections thoroughly to find another group that tickled my ears ... and here they are. Despite not being quite as abstract and chilled as the Nightmares on Wax stuff this cd proved to be a very hard driving relaxing mixture of rythms from start to finish, leaving me looking fowards to settling down with a copy of Making Bones and Our Aim is to Satisfy. Tunes to look out for on the disc are definitely: Lo-Beam & Fatboy's Dust

Red Snapper is hip hop meets jazz. Beautiful! 19 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I totally recommend this to anyone who likes where jazz and hip hop are melding and heading into the future. It's beautiful stuff, all live instruments and scratching. Another of their albums "Making Bones" is great, too.
"Prince Blimey" is as prime as any jazz, big band, or funk album from the '70s. A modern classic! 25 Jan. 2013
By Visual Bureau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Classic example of how great an album can be without trying to come across that way. Red Snapper's second album follows the magazine-idealised thread of Massive Attack and Portishead (the trip-hop world) but even better consider its lack of popularity and heavy orchestration/reliance on acoustics, real-time drum and bass patterns, and complex, somewhat Buddy Rich meets Frank Zappa and Primus (especially)-inspired rhythms. The definition that it's electronic music is false. More crosses over with indie rock, funk, and big band giving this mysterious and rather majestic album a very classy yet action-packed feel."

BEST TRACKS: Crusoe Takes a Trip. Moonbuggy. The Paranoid. Get Some Sleep Tiger. Thomas the Fib.

Wish I hadn't paid so much 24 Jun. 2003
By N. Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I ordered this CD for well over twenty
dollars and found it in my local shop
for eight bucks while shipping. Not that
I'm dissapointed with the CD, but man I
wish I'd saved the cash.
If you're coming from a Red Snapper past
of Our Aim Is To Satisfy and Making Bones,
expect the backwards progression you've
already seen.
This CD is far more acid-jazz than it is
electronic in any respect. It is still
excellent, and I enjoy it very much. The
instrumentation is excellent.
Inventive drumming and live instruments
carry the CD throughout. As other Red
Snapper work, the CD is highly original
and just well done.
The music is excellent and the songs
often shine through in their arrangement.
There are small electronic elements here
and there, a sweep of a synth, some stab
or work here and there, but the feel is
predominantly live.
Very good, but if you don't like acid
jazz and you're looking for an electronic
tinged gem like Our Aim Is To Satisfy,
you might be in for a suprise. But it's
great music in general, and I'm still
going to look for Reeled And Skinned.
This is the Music of the Future 17 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been searching for a band I could aspire to play like, and I think I have found it. This album is technologically tasteful. The use of effects is very well balanced with the live stuff.
This is a lifetime album... 15 Aug. 2002
By Alan D. - Published on Amazon.com

Let me tell you something, i cant stop hearing this album, if you like drums and basses (not the style drum&bass!) buy this album. The song Crusoe Takes A Trip it will totally blow your mind.
