One of the coolest albums I have ever known, if not the coolest. Most of the tracks are a sort of pay tribute to the jungle genre, like "Drop The Break" and the beautiful "Leap Into The Light".
"Bionic Hippy" is undoubtedly the masterpiece of this CD, and more especially the hidden track starting at the eighth minute mark. It is THAT good.
"Future", the original "Break In" and both "Superstar" and "Superstar DJ" are my other jams.
The word "cirrus" firstly refers to a light cloud, and there is indeed an ethereal atmosphere in this first album from the American band.
I just have one thing to say : buy it. There is such an unique touch that really works throughout the whole record. Check this and "Back On A Mission" too : the latter is more dark big beat oriented, and is a true joy creator.
However, to my point of view, "Counterfeit" disappointed me. Apart from "Boomerang" and "Straight Laid Out", there are too many fillers for me.

I used to listen to this all the time when I was in high school. The grand feeling introduced by the piano on "October 27" that turns into a jungle tune when the riff is played at double pitch is unforgettable. I heard "Future" on someone's cell phone as a ring tone once. "Leap into the light" was another favorite, and my memory eludes me but I think it was used in an advertisement on tv a few years ago. "Nassau", however is my personal weakness, and when that latin guitar kicks in, you feel like the beach party has begun. One thing to notice though, is that any song with the word 'break' in it is usually a remix of the same song. "Superstar dj" is also a 'break' song, so actually the material on this cd is basically an ep stretched out into an album.
