I got told today that this record was going for £80GBP on here. I believed it, but that information was bullshit. I believed that information because the record really IS that good.

Opinion Rated 'R' sounds quite similar to a couple of the tracks on The Earthly Pleasures E.P. - worth checking as that record is a little cheaper (and just as good!)

"We Cookin' Now" just may be one of the greatest deep house tunes ever crafted. Deep & soulful, uplifting...yet reflective. The synths really do a number on me. I've listened to it well over 100 times & it never fails to move me. This is certainly one of Abacus's very best works.

Black thanx is a deep seductive number - deep throaty bass driven sounds with a delicious chord structure working a top of a phased percussion, whilst the 'namer of names' lists his figures of admiration. There is undoubtedly a sociopolitical message here - the spoken lyrics all pertain to figures, who in Abacus' eyes, have deserved "..a black thanks - you'd better understand".
A big deep house track, fusing strong detroit and chicago influences.

"We Cookin' Now" is the first Abacus track I heard and August Bascom has had my undivided attention ever since. One of those tracks that have perfect strangers grinning at each other across the dance floor, and if this type of music has a point, that's it, isn't it?
