5-0 out of 5 stars Addictive
I've been a casual fan of Fatboy Slim for years, but have never delved into their entire body of work.However, since I picked up this CD, I've become addicted.Why Try Harder is a great into to Fatboy Slim.Give it a try, and I'm sure you'll love it too.BTW - the new track "That Old Pair of Jeans" is the best FBS track yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Why look harder?
If you want to hear, enjoy, and show off to others the genius that is Fatboy Slim, here you go.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good for a casual listener
I'll admit this freely: I'm not an obsessive Fatboy Slim fan who wants to own every single FBS song.I'm a casual fan, and I bought this disc for a good overview of FBS's most popular hits.

Editorial Review

If it wasn't for the revolutionary artwork, it would be easy to suspect that the Chemical Brothers were parodying their roles as electronic musicians with that album title. After all, people have accused the genre of sounding redundant for years. But while contemporaries like the Prodigy and Fatboy Slim fall by the wayside, on their fifth studio album Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons sound positively reinvigorated, as the dreamy textures of 2002's Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Chemical Brothers Album!
This was worth the wait. Their follow-up to the slammin' Come With Us, has that same Chemical Brothers' sound, without being formulaic or stale.
3-0 out of 5 stars I love TV commercials
I bought this CD because I like Galvanize-the Budweiser song.For some reason, this song just makes me smile.It has a good beat, etc, etc...I give it "82".the rest of the CD is good to, has good beats.I like it and I do listen to the entire thing, not just the song I like most.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favourite choice from 2005
Going back 1 year ago, I remember enjoying "Galvanize" from the very first time I listened to it; the song was played everywhere in town for quite a while but the initial appeal stood intact... At that point, I heard and saw the exceptional video of "Believe" and decided to get such promising album; once playing it, "The Boxer", "Hold Tight London" & "Marvo Ging" were easily raised to the same level of creativity of "Galvanize" and "Believe". By the end of the year, "The Big Jump" totally captured me, up to the point where I am now - placing "Push The Button" as my favourite album from 2005. As far as my taste for electronic music goes, The Chemical Brothers are still on the frontline at this stage of their career and this album can tell you why... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Electronica CD Of The 20th Century
If you want the best electronic music has to offer from the 20th century then buy this cd. Every track is top notch and it is one of the rare albums out there you will listen to over and over and over and over again. I'm not a big fan of their new material but VEGAS is a work of pure genius. Very few people of any genre right a album of this caliber in their lifetimes & at it's very least it is the soundtrack to the late 90's.

5-0 out of 5 stars album signals the wave of the future in music
The Crystal Method-Vegas (1997) The Prodigy was supposed to be the big break-through electronic act of 1997, but they have too many guitar samples to be considered a truly electronic act. The Crystal Method, with its tweaking electronic noise, funky break-beats, and minimalistic vocals signal the wave of the future in music (although I'm a sucker for progressive trance). With no official "hits," per se, the deejays have managed to get three of its songs into big-budget television commercials. We all know "Busy Child," ("I guess I didn't know" {boom boom}, but the instrumental tracks are the highlights for me. Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland, hailing from Las Vegas, also put on an amazing live show. The songs are packed full of energy and make you want to jump up and dance. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Overview
The Prodigy were a great singles band and the proof is in this compilation which contains basically everything a casual fan would want. I have to take a star off though for a couple of reasons. First, the non-inclusion of "Fire" and "Baby's Got A Temper" is a shame and secondly, the version of "Poison" on here must be a single mix or something because it's not the version I remembered from Music For The Jilted Generation (the intro isn't as good).
5-0 out of 5 stars They did that???
This collection really drives home the reality that The Prodigy solidified and invented much of what we hear in today's dance music.It's based solidly on the rave movement of the late 80s, then goes beyond that.Reminiscent of Drum and Bass sometimes, Hardcore, and their music is, of course, a predecessor to the modern breakbeat sounds we hear coming out of Europe and Florida.This is a classic collection from a classic electronic group that deserves attention.

5-0 out of 5 stars I am feeling old......
My daughter is 17 years old and she asked me about this album and I told her "BUY IT". I listened with her and it reminded me of my rave days back in the UK. It is awesome dance music. I didn't feel that it had aged all that much, it still sounded pretty fresh. ... Read more

After decades of being staples at flea markets and yard sales across the continent, the LPs Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass made in the '60s have been reissued with their original verve undiminished and sounding remarkably fresh. Taking things one step further is a new set of remixes. Those putting their hands are the faders include John King of the Dust Brothers, Mocean Worker, and Medeski, Martin & Wood. Alpert himself was an active participant in this project, adding some new trumpet solos amidst the snaky grooves and incessant beats. Not only will those familiar with the originals be dazzled by their transformations, but anyone new to these erstwhile million sellers will fall right in with the rhythmic drive and melodic hooks.

I had an original 33 1/3 recording that I wanted to replace but was wise enough to listen to the samples available first.I couldn't believe anyone could think it would be improved be adding so much overpowering clutter.Don't buy this one. Get the original version.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great music
Herb Alpert has done what few artists can do. He's taken his seminal masterwork and transformed it into another entity that is equal to or may even surpass the original.
3-0 out of 5 stars Tripped Cream
Wow...I just don't know about this...this is definitely a toss up. It's good but it's not. It's good that so many young artists were inspired by this incredible record of the 60s but it'sjust not the original and the original is a classic in every sense of the word.

Editorial Review

Since the Chemical Brothers explosion, new big-beat acts from the U.K. are greeted with skepticism, but Propellerheads are no copycats. Alex Gifford and Will White did the usual groundwork by releasing singles and EPs before giving up a full album. The groovy single "History Repeating," featuring '60s cabaret vocalist Shirley Bassey, plays slightly into the lounge revival of the late '90s but with a James Bond-esque style that grabs attention similar to Portishead's "Sour Times." The recurring spy film theme makes this a perfect soundtrack for Austin Powers's first rave--"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is actually a Bond remake. Propellerheads also slip in full-on "rock" jams ("Bang On!") and slick urban cut-ups reminiscent of De La Soul, who appear on "360° (Oh Yeah?)." Shifting tempos from laidback to lightning-fast with exceptional ease, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Frog Music
This is my 3-year-old son's favorite CD, and probably mine too.He likes the first track, "Take California", which he calls "Frog Music" because of how the bass sounds.
5-0 out of 5 stars And they played records
Big beats. Hip-hop. James Bond. That's the description of the Propellerheads' "Decksanddrumsandrockandroll," a wildly enticing album that mixes dance music with a James Bondian atmosphere. Its crossover appeal and originality are very good, but the raw energy is the icing on the cake.
4-0 out of 5 stars Everything is in the mix!
When I think of the Propellerheads, songs like "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" which was a bond movie remake and "History Repeating" featuring 60's jazz artist Shirley Bassey comes too mind. Those 2 songs are not what Propellerheads is all about though. Many of their songs are a mix of Hip Hop and dance music. With fast beats, hard bass and scratching. They never were afraid to mix the genres and even if they didn't make any other albums I can think of they stayed on to what they knew and never became too commerical like Fatboy Slim and Chemical Brothers. "Bang On" for example is a very fast song with rough beats. "A number of Microphones" is a a one of a kind hip hop influented song where they show what kind of sound you can do with the mic. "Bigger" introduces some scratching and awesome computer made sounds. "360 degree's" with De La Soul rapping. "Better" is jazzy while "Spybreak" is another Bond number. Many songs are also beat oriented, semi-drum and bass, or whatever you can call that. Overall a great album with many highlight. Propellerheads might not jabe been around for long but while they were they did some great work. Defenitely something for your dance collection. ... Read more

Calling fabled guitar god Jeff Beck "mercurial" doesn't do justice to the word – or the legend himself.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Guitarist Ever
This is not a review of this album, rather it is a statement about the artist. This guitarist has been simply the greatest of a long list of great ones.From rock and blues in the early days of The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group to the jazz-fusion period with Jan Hammer to the current phase of Industrial/Techno no other guitarist has been able to produce the sounds that emerge fom Mr. Becks guitar. His last three albums are a must for any serious student of the guitar. I saw him with Jennifer Batten a while ago. My wish is for these two brilliant guitarist to continue to collaborate
4-0 out of 5 stars Not his best...but worth having
I am a huge fan of Beck's instrumental work. This CD isn't his best stuff...for that I recommend Guitar Shop or You Had It Coming...but there are four songs (So What, Plan B, Pork-U-Pine, and My Thing) that definitely make this album worth the price. The rest of the album isn't bad, but those four songs kick a** IMHO. If you're a Beck fan, particularly of his more recent work, get the CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Jeff Beck....Simply Incredible
Jeff Beck is the Greatest Rock Guitarist Alive today,IMO!!!!!..And if you checkout this C.D.you will see what I mean.No He dosen't do that mindless shredding nonsense like the thousands of pretenders do...Jeff does things with His Guitar..I have never hear anyone else do.At well over 60 years Old Jeff is still Pushing the envelope.Jeff always likes to Put ferocious playing on His C.D.s as well as Pretty and soulful stuff to show His Range,and He does this Beautifully on this C.D.Intelligent,Amazing and Wonderful Guitar Playing from the Master,Listen and Love it ...

After listening to the first Mushroom Jazz, getting the 2nd volume in the series was a no brainer.I would say the mixing is a lot better in this set, but doesn't beat the overall quality of the first one.What is fascinating about Farina is his mixes do not sound dated and they are timeless in my opinion.A lot of the mainstream electronic music sounds ghetto when you listen to it years later, but Farina's style is fresh and there isn't the slightest hint of aging to his musical compositions.Also don't make the mistake of importing this set to your computer in separate tracks like I did.It totally ruined the continuity of the mix and the pauses in between tracks can be a serious mood killer.It took me almost a year to warm up to Farina's work and once it clicked there was no turning back.

5-0 out of 5 stars A real pride for the true Downtempo Headz...
Farina introduced me to deep house music 5 years ago with San Francisco Sessions. In 2002 I discovered the Mushroom jazz series, and all I can say is that Mushroom Jazz is my best experience of all time in music...
4-0 out of 5 stars Great CD for kicking back and chilling...
This is the first and only album from Farina's Mushroom Jazz volumes that I own, and I must say, I am impressed. This is an album that can be played from start to finish. Being in college, this CD has been great for small parties and/or get-togethers that puts everyone into a "chilled, relaxed mood". I believe there was just one song I did not exactly favor on the album.=, but overall, it is worth the buy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Crystal strikes GOLD
Now, I am familiar with a few of The Crystal Method's older works but not all of them. I've always kind of admired them from afar sort of afraid to jump right in and give them the "GO AHEAD" signal. They have always produced body rocking head bobbing beats that make you want to get up and dance or just hum along to the tune all day long. This album was the one that got me hooked.
4-0 out of 5 stars Better than the Chemical Brothers, but not Fatboy Slim
I pretty much hated this C.D. the first couple times I listened to it, but the wondrous track "Born Too Slow" kept convincing me again and again to give it another chance until at last I began to appreciate the music. Most of the tunes on Legion of Boom sample rhythms or vocal excerpts, and do this in an electronica fashion that is reminiscent of the Chemical Brothers, yet is significantly more catchy and fun to listen to. One of the more prominent melodies, "The American Way", features a violin pattern, some random guy saying "Tis the American Way", a bit of rap, and a strange noise that sounds like a hoarse monkey hooting. Then there is the spectacular song "Born Too Slow", which originally drew me to this album after I heard it on a Need For Speed videogame. This track includes an electric guitar rhythm, a good set of vocals, and a couple of mystic electronic noises which add greatly to the splendor. Ever since I found about Fatboy Slim, I've fallen in love with this genre, and The Crystal Method is a vital part of it! I would highly recommend this album to all Elecrronica fans, for it has an admirable sense of beat and the band is good at sampling.

Although I love the songs, I cringe at the transitioning.I expected the mixing to be more professional.Overlooking that aspect, Farina's selections are wonderful. I still love the CD enough to give it a good rating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Listen
This CD is simply the product of all good music combined. Hip-Hop beats, Jazz, Vocals, Blues, you name it. The title "mushroom jazz" is just perfect to describe the kind of music. It's jazzy and trippy. In my opinion, people who are into hardcore rap wouldn't like it. This is not a rap album. It is the beats that sound like hip-hop but with instruments and vocals layered on top of it. If you just want to chill out or want to create a lounge atmosphere, then this is the CD to play. This album is just the beginning of the series of whole new sounds!

5-0 out of 5 stars smooth and sexy beats
If you've never heard of Mark Farina, please wait no further and get this CD!Mushroom Jazz is an interesting mix of hip-hop, jazz, and funky beats.The CD is incredibly smooth and you'll find yourself tapping your foot throughout the entire album.The mixing is seemless and I like how he blends previous or future tracks into a song that is currently being played.The track might be In Hale, but it'll incorporate some beats/vocals from J-Live.Mushroom Jazz is quiet a remarkable and rare CD.

Norman Cook's bubble-gum techno songs--put out under a variety of guises over the years, including Pizzaman and Freak Power--are essential staples on any international dance floor. Fatboy Slim, however, is the former Housemartin's most successful incarnation, launching a Top 40 crossover hit and popular advertising jingle with last year's "Going out of My Head." Read more

I was not a Fatboy fan prior to buying this album and only bought such after the Chemical Brothers endorsed it during a magazine interview. If you desire something that will make you move your feet without listening to frantic fast-paced BPM tracks then buy this album. Also, the production and mixing are superb. While this is an "old school" album it is still contemporary and best of all, enjoyable. Fatboy is phat and far better than almost anything released by Def Jam.

5-0 out of 5 stars The 4 hits here alone make the CD worth it, but the rest are good, too!
Fat Boy Slim's "You've Come A Long Way, Baby" is probably the most famous big beat techno album ever, and it's easy to see why. The tracks which aren't hits are the "weakest" part of the album, but that's only because they grow on you - once you've listened to classics like "Gangsta's Paradise" or "Right Here, Right Now" it's pretty hard to like a song like "Soul Surfing". Give them time, though, and I'm sure you'll love them just as much. The songs here are so complex, fun and catchy that it's basically impossible not to love the album. Fat Boy crosses so many different genres and ideas here to make an album that doesn't sound like any other techno album I've ever heard before. These 4 classics ("Right Here, Right Now", "The Rockafeller Skank", "Gangsta's Paradise" and "Praise You) plus its historical influence makes this not only worth it but an instant classic as well. If you liked this album then chances are that you'll enjoy The Prodigy's "The Fat Of The Land" or The Chemical Brothers' "Dig Your Own Hole". Absolutely recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars I was afraid, but I'm not disappointed...
Yes, I was afraid when I knew that Farina's next mix would be on "Ministry Of Sound"...a poor label in my opinion. I love what Farina did on OM Records, and I was afraid of discovering a COMMERCIAL Mark Farina. In fact, I was wrong, because his mix is great. Okay, not as great as Frisko Disko or San Francisco Sessions, but efficient. The mixing technique is solid, and the track selection is good. A lot of "unknown" house tracks, far from the mainstream crap.
5-0 out of 5 stars The King of Swing does it again
Two discs, almost 40 tracks.Jackin' house music that will put a smile on anyone's face.A must have.

5-0 out of 5 stars Always bringing the heat
From the tracklist alone, you can tell this CD is pretty hot.I like how he mixed it in oldschool mixtape style bridging both cds.That Jamanta track is pretty intense. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre At Best...
I don't see the obsession with Crystal Method.I've been listening to them since day 1, before "Vegas" was even a twinkle in their imaginations, and it seems to me as though "CM"'s productions just keep getting weaker & weaker.Don't get me wrong I love "Vegas", Busy Child was brilliant and every track on the rest of the album is a classic.But Tweekend...c'mon, that album was a joke.Then their newer one Legion Of The Boom, there's like one good track (the 1st one)on that entire album.The good remix's of Born Too Slow sounded nothing like the crap original.Why does everyone praise these guys?There are so many different Breaks producers out there that are so much better.They're fun to watch live, but nothing you won't see from any other DJ or live act.
5-0 out of 5 stars Latest work from Crystal Method
Although it's not your typical Crystal Method album, it is still worth the purchase to add to your CM collection. I admit that the songs are not near as hard as I expect or hope, the album is still intense and dynamic. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Community Service = Essential Beats
This disc from the 'Method was the perfect predecessor to the incredible "Tweekend" cd, at the same time bringing fresh tracks (remixed or not; that is irrelevant) to the over-rated & overplayed "Vegas" release of 1997.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a mix album
First of all, if you buy this CD and expect another Vegas or Tweekend, you will be disappointed.What you will find here is a continuous mix of songs mixed by TCM.More breakbeat-oriented than any other TCM work, I found Community Service to be a bit repetitive, but it certainly has its share of enjoyable tracks.Breakin' on the Streets, Name of the Game, Boom, Renegades of Funk, and Paranoid were my favorites.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Mix of Cuts!
I may have been a bit late when I fell for Om Records artists and releases.I started out listening to some of their Om Lounge cd's in 2000 and instantly fell for the style and sound.After hearing vol 3 of that series I instantly wanted to check out some of their other artists and was pulled into the realm of King Kooba and several others, noticing remixes and just some fresh and unique takes and sounds.Mark Farina is a DJ/Producer on the label that I also got into late.The Mushroom Jazz series now spans 5 volumes, with each volume having it's own unique identity.
5-0 out of 5 stars Smooth
One of my absolute favourites right now!
5-0 out of 5 stars The best of the MJ collection
This one says it best - a triptifying blend of jazz, soul, and R&B elements.I am amazed this is being mixed - it sounds studio-edited - but it really doesn't matter either way.Stick in the player and chill, man. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars PLEASE PASS ME THE KY!!!
Lemon Jelly.KY is just as smooth as the lubricant itself! Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen have produced a bevy of downtempo songs that exude whimsical basslines and outlandish samples.Each track is a masterpiece that shows this duo has an oddball sense of humor as well as an ear for what sounds damn good in your living room and in your vehicle.This is indeed music for lovers of chill-out, acid and lounge.Highly Recommended!!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Big Beats Available
I find this even better, badder and more memorable than their fantastic "Vegas" and "Legion of Boom."Very different to my ears from Chemical Brothers and Prodigy, to whom The Method bear a superficial resemblance.I love both, and have most of the records of each, but there's something more...mature about Crystal Method.And menacing.This is the nastiest, sleaziest, most ominous, in your face big beat music out there.The breaks are so sharp and heavy on songs like PHD you really have to watch yourself to avoid hurting your neck.Consider the names under which their music is published: "Harder Faster Music," "Drug Money Music" and my favorite "Foxy Dead Girl Music."That pretty much sums it up.Put on PHD or Name of the Game and imagine beating somebody down with a baseball bat.Put on Over the Line or Blow Out and get ready to drive off into the sunset at 120 mph to do something unimaginably dangerous.Even if you're not an El Supremo Bad A** in real life you can easily pretend you're one while this is playing on your stereo.By the way, for some reason this seems to me like "older guy that you don't want to mess with wearing sunglasses and driving a really fast car" music.I can't imagine liking it that much if I was either younger or female.I'm neither, however, and I love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highlight
In my own opinion, I think this album is the highlight of TCM's career. From the awesome cover-art, to the more important music created. There are no rubbish tracks on this album, just the one song you might like a bit less than the others.
5-0 out of 5 stars Tweekend and LOB are no disappointments...
Screw the "fans" of The Crystal Method's Vegas album who say that Tweekend and Legion of Boom are what caused the group to go downhill. They obviously just don't get the picture right. Now that I own Tweekend, I have an excuse to strike those so-called "Vegas fans." Tweekend is one heck of a big beat record. Listening to these songs made me feel relaxed with gladness and joy. Before owning this album, I have downloaded one of the album's songs, "Name Of The Game." This song is what got me into the Tweekend album. It has cool guitars, spooling electronic vibes, and not-half-bad rapping vocals.
