This is the perfect driving soundtrack. An intelligent melange composed of various tempos (some songs like "Best Foot Forward" are solid enough to keep you awake) and a large range of instruments and electronic sounds.
You won't find the Sherlock ambience of "An Instinct For Detection" but this homogenous and effective record remains a cool electronic journey.

Justin Robertson's final album as Lionrock, CITY DELIRIOUS, kicks off with some thick electro breaks on "Push Button Cocktail" that soon give way to a moody melody, while the funk of "Rude Boy Rock" and title track never quit. "Electric Hairdo" brings in some guitar fuzz coupled with nice dub reverb effects before the straight-up house of "Best Foot Forward." But "Rock Steady Romance" chills things down for a bit with a slow, sinuous groove, before "Wet Roads Glisten" eases into your consciousness. Some bright breaks slide onto "Canal Heist," while "Zip Gun Rumble" brings on a funky bassline. "It's Panoramic" is probably the hidden gem on the album, a shiny piece of house before the mellow "Amazing New Product" leads the album out. This album will indeed leave you delirious.

Ok, this is original, great fun and highly energizing! We find electro-pop, house, freestyle & jazzy-funk elements, vocals and even some guitar riffs. I love the avant-garde weirdness of " electric hairdo " & " a cellar fool of noise "! So smart of an album, great 90s electronica, take a listen if you prefer listening to music loud and not stuck in a chair...............

This is one of my favourite albums. When it came out in 1998 I'd never heard anything like it, re-listening recently has reminded me how good it is and there's still nothing out there that sounds like it. Wicked drum programming throughout and tons of instruments and samples being twisted up and threaded together to make up an album of futurist sounding big beat without the cheese, smooth rolling electronic hip hop and bleepy-electro-deep-tech-housey stuff.
