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.

Another masterpiece from Neil Barnes and Paul Daley: more terse and concise than 'Leftism', nevertheless it includes great tracks like 'Afrika Shox' (with rap legend Afrika Bambaataa) and the techno-dub rhythm of '6/8 War'.

To be honest this record was a massive disappointment. Without any of the hooks of Leftism it seems devoid of tunes to make the beats more interesting. Phat Planet aside there is nothing remarkable on here and by the number that litter second hand shops rarely listened to.
