i have just bought this cd, i slipped it into the machine and pressed play. the speakers shook, the ground shimmered, it was as if the pimpin funking jazzy tooones from this cd had pitched a tent in my soul and were making themselves known to the neighbours. i live in a hideously dull part of the world (North east England), for those in the know dull grey and smoke filled pollutes come to mind when thinking about this area, for the few brief moments that i listend to this cd it moved me from the grey dullness of this place to the tent in my soul and there i stayed, getting down and letting it all go. I'll say it again, this cd is phat, phat and the gang.

The CD opens brilliantly with a high enery funk/jazz track but the album as a whole has too much of the 'cheesey listening' popular in the mid 90s in london for my taste, tracks that would sound at home next to Karminsky Experience releases. This might be viewed as only a problem with the packaging/title because the tunes are great, but I was expecting more of the real dirty funk/soul like the Tina Turner track on there. Most of this stuff sounds like it was done in an expensive studio in london, not brought straight out of the ghetto.

Get them all. If you can only buy one of them , get pulp fusion 1 (essential), and you can definately NOT go wrong with this one. Without doubt the best jazz funk compilations on the market. Not one corny over listened commercial crap track on them. Just the funkiest baselines , perfect horns ,flute arrangements and the finest breaks that have been sampled a million times by hip-hop producers. Brilliant.
