This is Norman Cook's first album as the infamous Fatboy Slim, and possibly could also be his best. The album begins on a high with 'Song For Lindy', a funky piece of breakbeat, that can be played for all sorts of occasions, and possibly his greatest tune. There are also more commercial numbers such as 'Going Out Of My Head', that samples a Yvonne Elliman cover of The Who's 'I Can't Explain', in full effect.

There are also classic Big Beat songs too such as the siren-laden '10th and Crenshaw', The wah-wah rock-and-roll of 'The Sound Of Milwaukee', The absolute classic 'Everybody Needs a 303' that has not aged a bit. It also has a couple of slowies like 'Santa Cruz' and 'The Weekend Starts Here', that perfectly gives the album more variation.

Overall, this is the Big Beat movement at it's peek, and the lack of guest spots, crossover potential and profanity (In Heaven and Star 69, anyone?), make this album a timeless, and somehow underrated classic. This Rocks!

PS: On the vinyl release, the bonus track 'Crenshaw Siren Beats' is a reprise of track A2.
