1.0 out of 5 stars Oh my god...., 16 Dec. 2000
This review is from: Utah Saints (Audio CD)
After downloading Power to the Beats from Napster I thought I couldn't go wrong buying this CD, especially with the above review sounding so positive. How I was wrong. This is possibly one of the worst albums I've ever heard. I've forced myself to listen to it a few times, incase I was missing something, but no. Mostly it sounds like computer game music. The best track, which is by no means special, has a rubbish remix stuck on at the end, personifying the lack of decent material here. Its not so much cheesey and bad as just plain badness - it sounds like someone created it from a school keyboard or something. The samples used sound crap, and the tunes are totally uninspiring. If you like anything from The Chemical Brothers to Kruder & Dorfmeister, and you consider yourself to have taste, I advise you to stay well clear.

Not good advice as I like the Chems and K & D ..and this..which predated the Chems, Prodigy and other breakbeat tehcno acts by a whole decade.

Agree with Nugent's comment. May not be your thing but think your summary is way off the mark. I would describe it as ground breaking sample-based dance/techno, and certainly well ahead of its time. Whether you like it or not, doesn't mean someone else won't.... As for comparing it to K&D, that seems just daft - its a completely different style & genre (other than the use of samples). That said, I like both - contrary to your "advice".
