Review - Fatboy Slim - 'You've Come A Long Way, Baby' 10th Anniversary Edition LP

Fatboy Slim - 'You've Come A Long Way, Baby' 10th Anniversary Edition LP

View The Review

9 out of 10

When this album came out, it seemed that Fatboy Slim had come out of nowhere, but he had previously released an amazing and underrated album 'Better Living Through Chemistry'. When his second album 'You've Come A Long Way, Baby' was released, the whole world went Fatboy mad, and rightly so!

Norman Cook's alias became the main person to go to for a remix, but this album made him a Superstar DJ! The album boasted such great singles as 'Praise You', 'Gangster Tripping' and the fantastic 'Right Here, Right Now'.

This new edition of the album comes with an extra disc with the tunes that were never readily available until now. Tracks on this extra cd include songs from his 'Late Night Tales' album, some cover versions, b-sides and some hard to find rarities which need to be heard.

Sometimes listening to a dance album which is 10 years old, the listener can feel that the music sounds out of date. This album still sounds fresh and it shows why it has become a part of most dance music lover's favourite albums.

If you already own this album, it's definitely worth getting it again for the extra cd and the beautiful packaging.

If you don't own this album, why not? Now is your time and turn to get it and find out what you missed the first time around.

I don't say this much - but this is a classic. Get it.
