    2000 : we entered the 21st century and big beat began its decline after its glory days between 1996 & 1999.
    This third album from the Brighton celebrity grew more in maturity than "You've Become A Long Way, Baby".

    It begins with a call under the big bright yellow sun thanks to "Talking 'Bout My Baby".
    Then, "Star 69" is the first party jam with its house pattern (the lyrics are really forgettable though).
    Following are "Sunset (Bird of Prey)" and "Love Life" which both keep a chill atmosphere. The first features Jim Morrison vocals and very catchy sounds at 1:32, and the latter offers some soothing retro funky vibes.
    After them, the ambience becomes festive again with "Ya Mama" (and not "Push The Tempo"), and it just keeps going until "Song For Shelter". Until that, you can appreciate the shaking bass of "Retox", the weird but funky vibes of "Weapon Of Choice" as well as the hip-hop rhythm of "Mad Flava".
    At last, concerning "Song For Shelter", this tune is the highlight of the whole LP, and is the example of "maturity" I mentioned earlier. Between the stellar intro, the house section and that incredible low-pitched transition to the "Talking Bout My Baby" reprise, those 11 minutes do not last long.

    This is not an exclusive big beat production like its predecessors "Better Living Through Chemsitry" and "You've Come A Long Way, Baby", and that is a good point in my opinion, since it make i"Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars" a bit more accessible.
    In any case, thie CD won't miss making you smile and moving your body for sure.
