A Very Ecclectic Album Number Three!

While his first "Better Living Though Chemistry" was heavy breaks with an underground edge to them, and his fantastic "You've Come A Long Way, Baby" was the ultimate Big Beat party album, this one is very different in style.

By mid-2000, the Big Beat scene was slowly gobbled up by Funky House and Nu-Skool Breakz, leaving only a few survivors still making tunes of the Big Beat genre today. This made Norm change his direction to be more ecclectic, and the answer is this: "Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars" (Taken from a book passage referring from becoming Underground to Mainstream).

By the time this album ends, you would have passed at least five genres, including Nu-Soul/Neo-Soul ("Love Life", and "Demons" with Macy Gray on vocals), Techno (The ultra-profane "Star 69"), Ambient/Chillout ("Talkin' About My Baby", "Sunset (Bird Of Prey)", that samples a rare Jim Morrison nugget), Funky House Music ("Song For Shelter") and of course, Big Beat ("Ya Mama", "Mad Flava", "Retox", "Weapon Of Choice" and "Drop The Hate".).

This album was a disapointment to some, due to the more laid-back approach on some of the tracks, but still. I think it was a pretty good effort from the godfather of Big Beat.
