"Sour Times" is a brilliant track, but it is astounding to hear Lalo Schifrin's "Danube Incident" and realise that Portishead lifted the entire backing track wholesale. And it's not even credited!

Being a worthwhile collection of remixes and reinventions of the infamous "Sour Times" track from DUMMY, it should be noted that two of the major standouts are "Airbus Reconstruction", a notorious reworking of the song by [P] themselves as a grunged-out rocker, and a head-bobbing remix of "Numb", cleverly hidden in the middle of the disc (after a couple of minutes of silence on "A Tribute to Monk & Canatella").
