When I bought this, I did so on spec, because I knew nothing about BBB but I like music with a central/eastern European influence, particularly all the Romanian urban gypsy stuff. The first time I listened to it I was tired and bad-tempered and I wasn't impressed. But I gave it another go and some bits began to gel and by the time I'd listened to it half a dozen times I was completely hooked. I love it now.... and I often play it LOUD whilst dancing round my flat! Haven't heard the earlier work though, so couldn't say how it compares.
