Certainly getting this one when it's released on vinyl (assumed it ever will).

Obviously the most underrated big beat album ever. I am shocked to be the first reviewer of this fantastic release. The whole record is pure joy during more than an hour (including the superb hidden track "Backwards Ass Country Funk", which starts 5 minutes after the end of the blast "Time's Running Out"). "No Pressure" couldn't me more well named, since it is the coolest track of the CD.
"Captain Cocktail", "The Answer" and "Stop And Panic" are like straight from space but the best of the best, "Rock The Funky Joint"... Damn, I get goosebumps everytime I listen to it.
It is my second favorite album behind "Big Sounds Of The Drags" by Junkie XL and I am happy for that. I fully assume this statement.
Most of these tracks have been used in various video games such as Test Drive 6, Gran Turismo 3 (USA version), NFS U2 and FIFA 2002. That shows the fun atmosphere reigning in this album.
To my mind, "Back On A Mission" has not received the credit it deserved, really. Yet it has its place without problem among other artists such as Freestylers, The Crystal Method, The Speed Freeks, Lunatic Calm, Supercharger and Overseer.
For that matter, get their debut album "Drop The Break". It is a sort of pay tribute to jungle, but it is one kind of a brilliant album too.
