Notes

The first Sneaker Pimps album, released in 1996. Due to the immense success the album received, it was re-released in 1997 with an alternate cover and remixes in place of certain songs. This is known as the limited edition release. The first, 1996 vinyl release contains the original artwork with original, intended track order. The 2008, 2016 and 2020 vinyl re-releases contain the original artwork with the 1997, limited edition track order. This was an error at One Little Indian Records' end.

      I just got a copy and it doesnt have the original version of Spin Spin Sugar :(

        Nice to see circuit board cover (as it was) in cassette circa '97.

        Great pressing, wonderful sound quality. Like blasting hifi in a submarine.

        'How do' (a rendition of Magnet's Willow Song from The Wicker Man movie) is a nice addition to the original release.

        Some albums I collect but this one is to treasure especially with the "33RPM" misprint. Must be a postmodern tease...

            A vinyl version of this has just been released containing the original 1996 versions. Has the same cover as the one of the band, not the circuit board. Hasn't been added to Discogs yet.

              Can anyone provide more photos? From my own copy which is a yellow/green marble and others that I’ve seen being completely green, not every copy is the same and it’s apparently limited to an unknown amount. I was lucky enough to get mine on eBay back in 2019.

                I have a cd promo of this which has a different tracklist from the ones listed, mines starts with Tesko Suicide.

                  would really prefer a vinyl pressing of the original versions with the original album cover.

                    This would also be great to be reissued with the original mixes intact...the prices for the original pressing are kinda ridic.

                      "Thumping Bass lines" - "Sultry,Silky,Smooth Vocals" - "Super Quite Pressing" - "Excellent Mastering" - "Uber Original Compositions" - "Shimmering Highs" - "Clear & Precise Mids" ...

                      ...I could go on ALL DAY LONG this is one of the best(if not the BEST)dance records I have the Great pleasure to own. I just absolutely love this group with AND without Keli,the three LP`s I own this and "Splinter" on vinyl(review coming soon!)& "bloodsport on cd(super expensive on vinyl as it was only released in 2002 with no reissues to date as fans would know)are all fantastic. This is a 45rpm double LP so the dynamic range is like have the tracks on 12" singles,no inner groove distortion or compression of dynamic range,both my discs are glass flat well centered & noise free. Purchased for about £35 or less if memory serves my right but is WORTH A LOT more now so if you can grab a copy for under £100 - DO!

                      I`m NOT going to go into the pointless (i.m.o) argument about remixes bla bla I love ALL the tracks here and have heard the originals and other mixes online - this review is about the "Qualities" of "this" item/record and they are VERY high indeed.
                      Conclusion:
                      Could be the best ever mass produced trip-hop/Electronic LP ever to be put on vinyl & one every dance,hifi,audiophile,record collector etc. should own,it`s that GOOD. Highly Recommended Five Full Fat Stars*****

                      PS.
                      I forgot anyone wondering about the "Thumping Bass lines" mentioned earlier just drop your stylus on, A1 "Low Place Like Home" & C3 "Wasted Early Sunday Morning" & feel the room SHAKE!!!

                        I was pleasantly surprised to see this back on the market, so I snagged one and am glad I did. I agree with everyone else, both records are quiet and sound great and no issues with the labels.
