5.0 out of 5 stars Prodigy becoming grown up., 18 July 2000
Music For the Jilted Generation shows a transition from the quirky all out dance sounds of their first album Experience (ie "Charly", "Wind It Up") to the deep angst big beats of Fat Of the Land. The last four tracks, starting with "One Love" seem to go back to the influences of their previous album. While "Voodoo People", "No Good" and especially "Poison" show where they were headed. So where are the weaknesses that usually occur when artists change their technique/style? There are none, this is a perfect and thoroughly enjoyable album made better all the better by the variation.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good album with catchy tunes, but . . ., 18 July 2000
This review is from: Surrender (Audio CD)
I think we've got to the point that we've been so spoilt by the creative big beats of the Chemical Brothers that this album drops a mark. "Music Response", "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" and "Asleep From Day" get your feet moving but "Go Glint", "Let Forever Be" and "Dream On" set a different (if still good) beat. Good music but the tracks could have been positioned better for more effect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good rather than brilliant but does have some gems., 18 July 2000
OK, it's not a brilliant album. However, "Virtual Insanity", "Cosmic Girl" and Didjerama" deserve a special mention. "Virtual Insanity" holds a philosophical mirror up to life and our dependancy on machines while still remaining lighthearted. "Cosmic Girl" is a tour de force from start to finsih. "Didjerama" is fairly conceptual stuff using native Australian instruments to fade into "Didjital Vibrations".

5.0 out of 5 stars Diversity and depth, the one stop music shop., 14 July 2000
This review is from: Reverence / Irreverence (Audio CD)
The background influences of the bands' members are clear to hear in the songs on this brilliant album. Ranging from the big beat 'Salva Mea' to the soulful 'Flowerstand Man' bypassing the hip-hop 'Baseball Cap' on the way this album has it all. Only one thing beats this album and that is 'Irreverence' the remix album, the drum 'n' bass version of 'Reverence' is inspired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick back and relax and let the music flow through you., 14 July 2000
This review is from: Colours (Audio CD)
Some of the most laid back and relaxing drum 'n' bass ever to be burned to disc. Excellent ambient sounds that help you drift into a dreamlike state if you close your eyes. The sheer complexity of the rhythems and the depth of the bass are divine. Well worth listening to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some classic tunes but sounding a bit dated., 14 July 2000
This review is from: Orblivion (Audio CD)
Although there are still some catchy tunes on this album (ie Little Fluffy Clouds) they are beginning to show their age.
