BPA = Bloody Poor Album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Think We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat (Audio CD)
What, prey tell was Norman on when he conceived this shipwreck? Was he having some acid-flashback and nostalgic hankerings to his days in the Housemartins? or was he simply fulfilling his contractual? Whatever it is or was, and whatever the reason they wasted the earth's precious natural resources on producing and manufacturing this utterly meritless compilation is largely immaterial, the fact is they did and now it exists. It exists like a landmine in a bargain basement bin, or worse, still on the shelf at full price. Ready to blow a hole in some poor unsuspecting soul's wallet and then single-handedly destroy the notion that they once had a coherent and well-selected CD collection, which of course, if they added this dud into, they could no longer claim to have.
Where and how does Norm draw the artistic and musical connection between a good number of these tracks which he sliced together brilliantly on the superb 'Dance Bitch' and this Christmas album? I am simply at a loss to correlate the two. Norman Cook aka Beats International aka Fatboy Slim aka this absolute and unmitigated garbage What happened? different genre... different BPM... different! VERY different. I mean the BPA connection, it's not even relevant. All this is, is a collection of never-was and almost-rans. A collection of minor '80s or '90s-sounding b-sides.
BPA? Brazen Pig's A**e?
