Sounds awesome-- huge bass. Mastered very loud. Mine has skips at the end of "Phat Planet" when played with my Ortofon Arkiv stylus. When I switch to a Ortofon Concorde DJ stylus, no skips. Kind of annoying I have to switch cartridges for certain records, but so be it.

My copy of this pressing sounds very good. Quiet, flat and centered.

Outstanding and criminally overlooked release. Leftfield moved from progressive house to dark breakbeat and it's a fine achievement.
Honestly, do you have ever heard something like "Rino's Prayer" ? God, the goosebups are HUGE here. Each time I listen to it I recall the Spirit Temple in the game Ocarina of Time, and that is irreplaceable !
In fact, like "Leftism", there are only mint songs.
It may not as the innovative status of "Leftism", but "Rhythm and Stealth" is really an absolute must-have in any decent electronic collection.

It's a hard life being the second at things: the second man on the moon for example.
Leftfield's follow-up to their revered debut suffers by comparison, but it's extremely good. Gone are the genre-stradling indie-rock crossovers and in it's place an album that sounds coherent as if it were written and performed by the same group at the same time, rather than a compilation of singles and album tracks jostling for company.
It's a bit grungy, a bit dirtier than it's predecessor, hard and heavy and a bit darker.
But, there are no bad tracks on it, in fact everyone's a winner, whether be the electro funk of Afrika Shox, the trippy El Cid, the killer Phat Planet or the vocal tracks including Swords' sweet soulful dub. It sounds fresh innovative and exciting, on the strength of it you could predict Leftfield's emerge as an essential band (like Underworld without the old-time music hall tradition or The Chemical Brothers without the redneck stomp), which, of course is entirely what didn't happen.
Where it suffers is; it came second. It will always be the album that wasn't Leftism.

This is a much under-rated album. Its not as seminal as Leftism but still has way more than just Phat Planet (Which is still a great track). Like Leftism it is a journey through bangin' floor fillers and dreamy laid back numbers. Leftfield did a huge amount for pushing electronic music in the 90's and this album is no exception.

every copy of this UK press Ive come across has a mispress in the middle of 'phat planet' - go for the US columbia press, its far better quality

One of the best electronic albums ever made, I'll even say it's better than Leftism too. Essential albums made by an essential act.
