On first listening I was thinking hmmm this is going to be radical. But then Goldie is anyways, so I walked it on ever ready for a new journey in dnb to remind me of my old days of losing it in Bristol on many wonderful nights, days and whatever else. I was very pleasantly surprised (which is my favourite state!) so I enjoyed the full length mother tracks and embraced it. As things have moved on don’t expect another Timeless, expect the unexpected and roll with it. See what happens for you. But - it is another production which shows me the level at which Goldie operates which is genius level in my humble opinion. He is an all round talented and very funny guy to boot. Bravo!

The US CD version of Demonz has a longer runtine (6:03 vs 5:27). This is due to a pressing error that causes the track to break @ 2:55 and 3:06

one of the best albums i ever heard, this is great piece of art, its not about the listener it's just about what goldie is. not just dnb its exploring multiple musical styles and this is what an artist do. never care about what people will say just pure human expression. theres a lot of expression on the lirycs and the musical style. theres an evolution on every track and the use of the instruments and the variety of al of them all along the album its just amazing. some people say its boring but music its not about entertain. its about explore and expression and its easy to find this here.

Absolute shite in my opinion. Self absorbed, boring, and undanceable. you should be able to dance to dance music, or at the very least it take you on a journey. The only journey this took me on was to my local charity shop with the thing tightly sealed so nobody could see that I had bought it, because at £0.62 it's more ethical to give it away than to charge somebody for it. Fucking embarrasment to Jungle!

"Mother" is a magnificent. What Goldie did was to accept no compromise and out of it came a 60 minute epic of full orchestral movements into-woven with rhythmic drum patterns. I love it, I really do. I have no truck with those that say it's "bombastic"...I appluad Goldie for his bravery in attmepting something so ambitous and pulling it off. Those that say it's "boring" or "not D&B" are to narrow-minded and impatient to appreciate the track.
It the greatest piece of D&B I've ever heard.

In my opinion "Mother" is a masterpiece, I absolutely adore that track. But Saturnz Return doesn't work as an album overall because it's too "messy", the harder/faster tracks like "Temper Temper" and "Demonz" just doesn't sit well together with the downtempo stuff included. Goldie should have done what System 7 did, put out one "Fire" and one "Water" album.

Many people write this disc off, but I was amazed the first time I heard it. I don't pretend to understand it, but I listened to it until I knew it inside and out, down to how long the pause was between "Truth" and "Dream Within", and only then did I allow myself to make up my mind whether I like it -- and it turned into one of my very favorite records. Especially "Truth", "Dragonfly", and the 2nd movement of "Mother."

Some of this was recorded in a studio in my home town - Stevenage, Herts.
The first disc is not totally convincing but you must admire Goldie's efforts to produce such a monumental piece. The second half of Mother moves effortlessly from swathes of classical music into intricate D+B breaks an and back again.
Demonz is my favourite on the seconds disc.

i found this album to be really refreshing. i expected to get typical late-90's D&B, that it was hard to put a time-stamp on, or even discover D&B elements at times.

in terms of experimentalism, it reminds me somewhat of amon tobin, the way goldie clearly choses to ignore a lot of conventions. yes, some tracks are kind of hard to listen to, but i still kept fascinated by the music, wondering how the tracks would evolve.

in these days when most of the 'breakbeats' that are produced sound pretty much like the same old boring shit, this was definitely a welcome change to me. silly i didn't notice the album earlier!

the higher they climb the harder they fall. the 2nd Goldie-album turned out to be disappointing. the 60-minute-track "mother" is bombastic and boring, it seems that Goldie has over-estimated himself and tried to make a monument of himself and failed. however, the 2nd cd has some good tracks, but they are not really necessary. there's better stuff out there.
