Product Description


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

4.0 out of 5 stars Right about NOW! 15 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mix of beats and more subtle tracks 17 Feb 2001
By mcbryan
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SLIM ALBUM 27 Feb 2014
By Ben
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars good tunes 27 Dec 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
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.

Fatboy Slim looks like a normal bloke, but really he's a freak of nature. He has this mad scientist mentality that creates these classic dance tracks. Read more
