A very good album, but not one that I regularly choose to listen to all the way through. There are some Fatboy Slim classics - Don't Let The Man Get You Down, North West Three and the marvellous cover of The Joker being three of the standout tracks. Then there are those which are just great music, such as Song For Chesh, Long Way From Home and Wonderful Night. The majority of the album falls into this category in fact.

I seriously can't understand the backlash this album has received from the media and indeed many reviewers here on Amazon. All I can think of is that these are people who were "ravers" ten years ago, but have now grown up and don't want electronic music to change from how it was when they went raving. In my opinion this is a great album, and possibly even a future classic of the era along with The Prodigy's "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned". If things didn't change music, and life, would be much more boring.
The opening track is in some ways nothing like the Chemical Brothers' previous work, but also contains elements typical to their style, and was the perfect choice as the debut… Read more
