4.0 out of 5 stars
Only a small portion of Blue Jam, 31 May 2003
The thing about Chris Morris is, you either love him or you don't (the two teams were more or less decided after that fatefull Brass Eye in 2001). For those of you who avidly follow his work, this is more or less a must-have. It includes a range of sketches from the Radio 1 series, including short but sweet gems like 4ft Car, and disturbing and word-bending monologues like Suicide Journalist. Despite pre-purchasing cynisism, you will probably listen to this album a lot more than once, even though it's the same thing every time; there is a fantastic soundtrack with the likes of Brian Eno and Aphex Twin, and some of the tracks take a few listens to truly understand.
So why only 4 stars? Well, there were roughly 18 episodes of Blue Jam when originally broadcasted, each one an hour long. So basically you are missing a lot of stuff, if you are a completist. I dare say, however, you can find the remaining material floating around the net.
