This album is unreal - why - because it is simply the best fusion of dance, rock n roll, electro, beat poetry and drug induced riot you will ever hear. If you take the appalling 'Never as Tired...' off the album , you are left with ten truly great tracks and a couple of masterpieces in the form of "Yr City's a Sucker' and 'Losing My Edge'. You know how great the singles are, ...My House and Beat Connection, and you know that Murphy is one ugly fu..er. But he has a beautiful heart, and a wicked and twisted mind that slays media wannabees and musico-bores (like Chris Morris with a turntable and mic). Its hard to sum up how good this is, but put it next to Mylo and Vitalic, the other dance saviours, and whilst they are prettty cool, they are a pint of shandy next to a hit of pure Bolivian crack. But, like the latter, the comedown may be nasty - Murphy will find following this next to impossible, but who cares, he's left a work that sits with a few other impossible to follow first albums (Leftism, first Stooges album, Stone Roses). Buy it, steal it, just get it!
