Palookaville product reviews

DJ extraordinaire Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook) delivers his fourth studio LP, 'Palookaville' this month. Four years in the making it's the sensational follow up to 'Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars'. Inspired by his work on Blur's critically acclaimed 'Think Tank' album last year, Fatboy has used real musicians on the LP including vocal contributions from Blur front man Damon Albarn, Bootsy Collins Lateef from Latyrx and more.

I must admit to being a somewhat luke-warm fan of Fatboy Slim's works. An occasional gem has reared up over the years, my personal favourite is "Weapon of Choice', but mainly because of the video (I am a great fan of Christopher Walken, and he was spectacular in this).

So, I wasn't expecting much from this album, and I at least wasn't disappointed. Probably the only song I would listen to more than once in a blue moon would be 'Slash Dot Dash' simply because of it's tongue-in-cheek poking fun at the so-called 'dot-com' business economy we are living in these days.

Overall... you can dance to it, you can groove to it, but if you like MUSIC, you'll not be spending money on this one. This is techno-babble in tonal form, with lots, and lots, and LOTS of repeating loops. Mechanical, mathematical pseudo-music. Which is right up there in a lot of modern kid's musical preferences it seems. If that's what gets you going, this is it. Is it. Is is is it.
