Hip-hop (El-P), ambient (Aphex Twin), smooth house, big-beat colossi, sultry noise, f***ed-up broken beat (Aphex Twin, again) and Palm's roster treasures Supreme Beings of Leisure all blend together in this mix, propulsive and conceptual. If you've seen the film, the album is the perfect complement, adding in little snatches of dialogue periodically. The highlight, ten years down the road and still going strong, is Leftfield's "Song of Life," which works on so many different levels, especially old-school Baby Ford-ish acid house. Don't miss it.
PROS: An excellent variety of modern dance music, even strictly big-beat fanatics will dig it.
CONS: Context is lacking if you haven't seen the film.
