More like a greatest hits release rather than an actual album

The R Rated Video for "Smack My Bitch Up" is a masterpiece that remains banned from YouTube , if you haven't seen it look it up online and witness greatness

This shit was incredibly edgy when it first came out. There was an intensity and attitude that, while dwelling in a seedy undercurrent, was lifted somewhat euphorically by a breakbeat, in-your-face, bouncyness that drew shadowy characters to the dance floor. In fact it connected with the 'jilted generation' better than their album with that same title.

Breathe is a classic track. The intro still gives me chills when I hear it as I remember the energy that the song is about to trigger. Some other songs on the album fail to measure up to such high standards as this incredible song but in their own right they still form the basis of a very solid album.

When you consider that a melding of electronic and punk rock had never previously been so well produced as this album you would have to consider it as a groundbreaking, progressive classic in many ways.

Hmmm... makes top 100 yet is on par (in my opinion) with The Crystal Method's Vegas which doesn't even make top 1000... okie dokie.

My first real approach to electronics. A very explosion of energy, some great pieces like the first two tracks and Firestarter. Really really addicting!

This is a pretty good collection of songs, although Smack My Bitch Up stands head and shoulders above the rest. There are a couple other catchy moments, but after a while a lot of the tracks tended to blend together. My main problem with the whole break-beat thing is that everything seems centered around one beat, and there's very little else going on during the songs. Great music if you want to thrash around and throw people to the ground (and if I ever throw a rave I'll definitely turn this on), but I don't connect to it much otherwise, which would make it difficult to come back to.

Certainly not the greatest thing I've ever heard but still some decent tracks and instrumentals. Breathe is still a stunning lead single, as is Firestarter. The rapping on Diesel Power flows incredibly well yet the rest of the album just seems to tire as it furthers.

My father used to listen to it all the days when i was younger. But just now I realise that he isn't that amazing album that i thought that it was. But it still a great album, "Firestarter" makes me shake all my bones until today!
