No reviews about this joint ? Well, let's get started !

This is undoubtedly one of the best big beat albums in history, and quite a pearl of electronic music.
I do not know a lot of albums where ALL TRACKS are excellent. This is the case here.
Each minute, each second, each beat, each note is pure awesomeness. The consistency of these holy 72 minutes never fail.

Want to escape routine ? Just listen to the first song "Make Jah Music". This music alone is already worth the money. Its arabic atmosphere combined with huge beats shows how godlike big beat was.
Next step is : want to be in heaven ? The non-stop beats of "Steppa's Ball", "The Whore of Babylon" (one of the best build-ups ever followed 5 minutes after the beginning by ENORMOUS tempos) and "Retreat Wicked Man" are here to satisfy your wishes.
Eventually, the whole album will leave you speechless during several minutes, especially if it's your first listening. A wide open mouth may also be possible at the end (it was my case when I discovered it haha).

I won't beat around the bush anymore : buy it. More than an advice, it's a necessity if you need some rhythm in your life.
I listened to it one night while driving around the town : one of the best experiences I've ever lived. I am convinced that some of the 90s' electronic music have a particular feeling that you don't find anywhere else.
You can listen to it anywhere, unfortunately some of your neighbours may not appreciate it as much as you. In that case : headphones recommended !

Oh, and by the way : all the best for 2018 ! This year will also be the 20th anniversary of "Shoot The Boss". Time goes by so fast !
