  • Summary: Legendary producer/remixer/DJ Paul Oakenfold (Happy Mondays, Perfecto Records) has finally gotten around to releasing an album as an artist. Vocals on this 11-track set come from the likes of Hunter S. Thompson, Nelly Furtado, Tricky, Perry Farrell, Grant Lee Phillips, and Emiliana Torrini.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 16
  2. Negative: 2 out of 16
  1. Diverse and constantly engaging.
  2. Kudos for making such a disparate collection hang together as a cohesive, upbeat, infectious whole.
  3. Yes, it's eclectic and he hasn't just slapped together a ragbag of Ibeefa anfums, but this record essentially suffers from a lack of ambition.
  4. The album works because Oakenfold has abandoned the stylistic limits of trance yet brought the genre's tuneful oomph to tracks with a little more personality.
  5. It was a phenomenal album two years ago, when it was called Movement In Still Life and BT released it. Now, in 2002, it just seems dated.
  6. 40
    Bunkka proves he can't write songs to save his slipmats. [#8, p.120]
  7. File under: Bunkum. [21 June 2002, p.84]
