Has the world gone mad??!!, 1 Nov. 2002
I really, truely can't understand how this album is so under-rated. Sure, it has a different feel to his previous two, but that is not reason alone to condemn it. It really is a fine collection of work from somebody who is an excellent song-writer as much as he is a DJ.
Sandwiched between the sun-drenched, Ibiza inspired Talking Bout My Baby and Song for Shelter, there are moments of greatness. These include the haunting Moby-esque Demons, the funk of Weapon of Choice (forget the hype the video received, just listen to the song) and dream-like Bird Of Prey.
Sure, there are a couple of low-points, but even somebodyas talented as Norman Cook can't keep it going for the full 65-minutes. But overall I was highly impressed by this difficult second album. As the Amazon reviewer says, if this Norman growing old, wait till he hits 60....
