Cannot recommend highly enough.
I rmember buying this on vinyl the day after hearing it at a mate's house a decade ago. Just got the CD after realising my copy has been temporarily misplaced... It really is special. Half of the tracks on here are fairly forgetable and to be honest i've always skipped a few.
However, the other half more than make up for it. Incredibly lush and sensual soundscapes laid over hypnotic beats, with clever basslines that fit perfectly. Trying to describe it makes me go all soppy for my youth.
If you were into this scene in the mid 90s, then this is a must have. If not, then check this album out to get a feel for it.

i bought this cd because i love the song 'still', which i first heard on 'prototype years' compiled by the one and only Grooverider. although for me it remains the best song on the cd, the rest of the tunes are very good and are in keeping with the dark (and sometimes even sinister!) feel of the album. If youre like me and love deep, dark and intelligent jungle but cant tolerate the mega-fast, cacofonous noise that some artists produce, then add this little gem to your collection.
