Here we go is kinda dated and sounds like some corny spring break party but the rest of the album is pretty solid.

Another one of my top 10 favorites. A big part of the big beat phenomenon.
This US edition contains the blasts "Spaced Invader" and "Check The Skillz", and that's why I got this edition instead of the original.
The intro "Freestyle Noize" pays tribute to Public Enemy. Then, the duo "Drop The Boom"/"Don't Stop" refers to freestyle in general (Don't Stop The Rock).
"Here We Go" is another monster hip-hop track, followed by "B-Boy Stance" which says it all thanks to the video clip and the unique vocals of the late "Tenor Fly". May God bless you up there !
Afterwards, "We Rock Hard" takes back the style of "Don't Stop" with the royal presence of Afrika Bambaataa. "Breaker Beats" is the funkiest big beat here, in the roots of Fatboy Slim.
"Ruffneck" is in the same vein of "Here We Go". Concerning "Feel The Panic", it has one of the best sounds I've ever heard (16 seconds after the beginning).
At last, "Warning" ends the party with its furious drum and bass rhythm. Combined with some electric guitar and the enjoyed performance of MC Navigator, it's a killer for sure.
If you like big beat, it's simple : buy it. It is a real key CD of this old style.

Still worth a listen after all these years, think it would have benefited it's legacy if it had been put out on Ninja Tune, where it would be right at home.
