:,) happy to finally have this gem. Mine's a lil beat up but it's survived 21 years. Vibert's a legend yet sadly he goes so unnoticed. When I first heard this album many years ago I'd only heard Yoseph, We Hear You and a few of his Plug tracks. This album is definitively a Trip Hop one (as much as a few people don't like the label Trip Hop, it encapulates an era) and when I heard it I was blown away by the mastery of his sampling skills. I'd heard Endtroducing... by DJ Shadow and enjoyed that, but Vibert has a certain playful technique to his tunes, much like when you listen to his mate AFX and you can distinguish that "yeah that's most defs the ginger wizard". I hardly listening to DJ Shadow anymore, End was a good album, but Big Soup remains a voyage in to textbook Trip Hop sampling. Vibert himself admits he can't re-capture that sound that made Big Soup what it is anymore (e.g. people ask him to make Plug tracks, but that trick is gone, although his Amen Andrews moniker puts out mad tracks), but perhaps that's a good thing, as Big Soup is perfect as it is, and we should be happy with it. :)

Amazing album on all fronts here, touches an incredible amount of realms in the "breaks" section all in one package. Through hip hop, uk style breaks and drum & bass. Yessssss!!!
