It's CRAZY to think that this amazing album is now 20 years old - Still one of my favourites.

I have to concur with some reviewers here. "The Rockafeller Skank" is the worst big beat song of all time. "F****** in Heaven" also bores me a little bit. However, it stays more than acceptable as commercials and remains well above most mainstream electronic music of today.
But "Right Here, Right Now" is godlike and all the stuff starting from "Gangster Trippin" is definitely one of the best sequences of this style.
The word "Power" rules all the way indeed. Nevertheless, I confess that I prefer the dark side of big beat, thanks to artists like The Crystal Method, The Prodigy, Junkie XL, The Chems and Lunatic Calm to quote the most well-known ones.
Are you looking for a consistently good Fatboy Slim album ? You should rather take "Better Living Through Chemistry". In my humble opinion, it is his best work. "Halfway Between..." is also remarkable.
Don't drive while listening to this, otherwise your driving license will be in danger and your head may repetitively hit the steering wheel because of the huge tempo.
A refreshing album which is only waiting for an owner.

Quality productions, reminds me of my late school days. Mine just says BRASSIC 11.. Same one?

I never noticed that the dude on the cover is real ugly as well as fat, also this might be the first cd I ever bought!!

This is a high quality album from Norman Cook, that is all there is to it. Fun production with great samples that rocked many a party.

At the end, this si one of the best Big Beat albums ever made, despise of the popularuty of some songs in it. The commercial success is out of the hands of the musician, so there's is no reason to blame Cook for the annoying success of some of his tracks in this album, in fact I don't think when he was making the album thought if some songs will be the headline of some brands or anything. You know in the end, you should go buy this record, forget wherever you listen previously, and enjoy a truly classic, with truly electronic power of the 90's.

not really my advice... I think that Rockafella skank is one of this rare tracks wich can blow up every party in evry street of evrywhere in the world.
Ok: now, that sounds commercial, marketed, targeted, but this is not highly minded music; remember it's perhaps the only electronic lethal weapon you've got in your collection to make everybody rising their hand during your heavy dully party of specialist.
Norman cook, a new rockstar?

Have to agree with Illabadilla on all accounts. I thought "Praise You" was depressing and "Rockafella" skank was just annoying. The other singles I quite liked, and all the other tracks are very good, but "Acid 8000" is just incredible - his best track by far IMHO.
Buy it if you don't already own it - its well cheap now.

This album has the two tracks that made Fatboy slim famous: "Praise You" and "The Rockafella Skank." These are the two worst songs that Fatboy Slim ever made. Their annoying and boring. This album, however, is not a total loss. The best tracks on it are "Love Island" and "Acid 8000"
