Oh my, talk about albums that haven't aged well! The whole album seems very much tied to its time, there really is no timeless quality to this. Most tracks (The Rockafeller Skank being a prime example) are gimmicky up to the point of being downright annoying and the sounds/samples are pretty crude (and not in a good way!). Of course the album has its high points - Right Here, Right Now, Praise You and Acid 8000 are all fantastic tracks but the rest are severely lacking in comparison. I suppose the biggest disappointment is that the album sounds so different to what I remembered.

Fatboy Slim's debut album, Better Living Through Chemistry, was one of the surprises of the big beat revolution of 1996 - an eclectic blowout, all tracked to thunderous loops and masterminded by Norman Cook, a former member of the British pop band the Housemartins. It might not have been as startlingly fresh as the Chemical Brothers, but the hard-hitting beats and catchiness, not to mention consistency, of Better Living was a shock, and it raised expectations for Fatboy Slim's second album, You've Come a Long Way, Baby.
