As an album, Critical Beatdown just falls short of being 5 stars but there are enough fantastic tracks on here to make up for a couple of weaker efforts. The trouble is that the good tracks are timeless classics so make others seem weaker than they are.
Kool Keith showed the world that he was the greatest rapper out and Ced Gee and engineer, Paul C pioneered new sampling techniques and really started to work the samples in original ways. Ced Gee (Delta Force One) is one of my favourite tracks, mainly for the ingenius and infectious chop of Bob James' Nautilus.
This record has influenced so many people, from the vocal samples The Prodigy have used to Fatboy Slim's production blueprint (the big drum sound) and it's essential for everybody to hear - just to appreciate the affect they have had on modern music.

As a white, middle aged physiscs teacher, you might not think that I would be into this kind of music, but it is excellent. I really enjoy the beats and the MC-ing is out of this world.
Thankyou Utramagnetic MCs, keep up the good work!!

So many samples, Quality rhyming and tunes. I spotted three tracks that Prodigy had sampled. That must tell you something. Pay Close Attention!

As I remember from the original release. Another tick on the list. One more blast from the past accounted for!!

up there with all of the classics from the 80s and 90s.
