I bought this recently used n it arrived very quickly & in brand new condition. Thanks zoverstocks. As for the cd... firstly I should mention that I am an avid basshead having dropped hiphop as quickly as I picked it up in 95 when I first head congonatty's junglistic man...from there I fell in love with jungle until the metal drums & bpm's increased to create drum & bass... recently having something of a look back & trying to fill a few gaps in the collection led me to get this for the track brown paper bag alone.. so I get it put it on & the first track railing comes hurtling out of the blocks & blows me away...promises of funky warps, slick lyrics & creative breaks really had me all excited thinking the rest would be more of the same...I know roni won critical acclaim topped off with a mercury music for this album but it honestly doesnt fit the bill for me... brown paper bag isnt the version I know n love (has no lyrics) which is wierd & the rest are an assortment of overthought tracks... too much percussion & not enough weight in either the vocals or basslines leave me a little disappointed still, cracking first track though
