Biographers of Norman Cook should look no further than the title of this--his second album under the pseudonym Fatboy Slim. From humble beginnings as the bass player in prole rock band The Housemartins, through chart-topping fame with Beats International, and even a spell scraping a meagre living from writing computer game soundtracks in the early 90s, Norman Cook has done it all. You've Come A Long Way, Baby, though, is the Fatboy's culmination; the quintessential, and utterly essential big-beat album. "The Rockafeller Skank" is a manic collage of surf-guitar looped into ever-tightening spirals; utterly simplistic, but a work of devilish genius. "Gangster Tripping" and "Fucking In Heaven" are in a similar celebratory mood, but to prove that the Fatboy doesn't always work by a formula, try the purloined gospel of "Praise You", or the rave nostalgia of "Acid 8000". It's seldom poetry, but dumb dance music doesn't get much better. --Louis Pattison

Sometimes it's hard to like an album so much once it has been mangled through the charts and media to an extent where you're absolutely sick of it. But credit where it's due, this harmless album of quirky big beat opened so many doors on both sides of the Atlantic...how often can you go out and not hear Praise you or the Rockafella skank?

This is a really good album by Fatboy Slim. There is an excellent mix of raw Big Beat tracks and softer, more relaxing ones. A lot of the tracks on this CD have been released as singles (and they have all deserved it), and therefore this album is a great way of listening to all of them. Fatboy Slim is one of the best Big Beat artists around, and this is one of his best albums.

Every song on this album is memorable and you have most likely heard at least half of them somewhere before! If you look around the interweb a bit, this album can be found on many a "Best of the 90s" or Best EDM albums ever" and there's a good reason for this! Every song is unique and catchy - Similar to Nirvana's Nevermind in that every song could be a single - Buy this album now, you won't regret it!

A few good tracks on this as album. Some of them are a bit monotonous and I thought the track had frozen. All in 'all though, I still play it in the car.
