I believe that this CD has a pressing error - track #3 "The Unbearable Lightness Of Bean" ends abruptly at 10:24 and it doesn't sound at ALL as if that's how the track is supposed to end. Also, it's really is 10:32 long according to the CD index on my copy, and on the "Recycle Or Die Compilation" cat# ROD WOM the same track is 10:36 long. Any comments? Thanks.

This is a rather unique album, combining hypnotic percussive elements with lulling drones and dubby effects in ways I've rarely heard in 90s electronic music. The tunes are mostly optimistic and sprinkled with pretty melodies, but there are also moments of abstraction and some strong beats. All in all the sound is quite organic for an ambient album of this era. Not the sort of ambient you could doze off to.

On <I>Bean Me Up, Scotty!</I>, the Baked Beans’ second album, the ambience is still a factor, though there’s a bit more consideration of the rhythmical elements as well. “Jim Bean,” for instance, has its lofty synths grounded by a steady ethnic beat, while “Human Bean” has an almost sweet sound to it, like something you’d hear in a nursery. Make sure the kids aren’t around to hear “The Unbearable Lightness of Bean,” though, since it’s considerably darker, like an African safari. Both “James Bean” and “Echo Bean” return to the lighter side, with more positive melodies (even though the latter is rather short). And the closing track, “Heinz Roth Has Bean Sad,” is a delicate and quiet track, skewing towards melancholy. A definite maturing of sound from their first album.

I've heard only "Heinz Roth" but on the strength of that track alone I want this CD!
