5.0 out of 5 stars Biggest beats, 29 Oct 2008
This review is from: Decksanddrumsandrockandroll (Audio CD)
From the great 90s 'dance' scene that saw the likes of Underworld, Orbital, The Chems, Fatboy Slim and Prodigy along came this one-off effort which IMO stands alongside the best albums these bigger name acts produced. I hadn't played it for a couple of years until last week and now it's on permamnent rotation..almost. Unlike most 'dance' albums this hasn't dated and sounds fresher than pretty much anything currently doing the rounds. It's also a rare album you can play straight though without skipping any tracks and this sure is one of those unusual beasts. The highlight though is the reworking of the James Bond OHMSS theme, IMO the best version of any Bond tune..ever. This is 9 mins of funky breakbeat fury overlaid with David Arnold's lush orchestral arrangements. It's 'kin well the dog's. Seeing as the prices here are so good I think I'll need to get meself a spare copy the number of times I'm caning my own to death. A bl**dy terrific album. What a shame they never made a follow-up.
