simple really - if yr any kind of music lover : be it into drum+bass/dance, electronica or is just simply open minded who likes "deep" or late night electronica : u need this album from 1995.
a landmark lp which still shows up the shortcomings of many other so called classic "dance/electronica artists" . its not perfect but tracks such as the full length version of "inner city life" , "you + me" and "sea of tears" are stunning :combining Goldie's trademark hardcore/jungle beats but with soundsacpes and layers taking this drum + bass lp far beyond the average d+b/dancefloor only album. there's technical beats, great female vocals (mostly from Diane Charlemagne) on most adding melody and a deeper level to the music, combined with an almost classical sense of dark + light, emotion, drama + scale.
even now over 10 years on "timeless" remains a musically satisfying digital yet soulful album. oh and its still better than much less adventurous 'darkcore' or the 'liquid' d+b releases since.
