  1. Cook bursts back with Brighton Port Authority, a project that liberates him from the "electronic dance artist" identity crisis and allows his production talents to shine.
  2. Norman Cook’s concern for the state of his trade, while veiled in ironic drag, is hard to ignore. It’s what makes The BPA tick, but also what keeps the BPA’s debut album more in the theory-not-practice side of respectability.
  3. Under The Radar

    The setting of its creation and the open mindedness of its creators allow for an unfettered approach to music-making that stops things from getting stale--or clashing with each other for that matter. [Winter 20009, p.70]

    Even though songs 'He's Frank' and 'Toe Jam' are tremendous achievements, I Think falters too often in mediocrity, and fails to show promise of becoming as classic as it was meant to be. [Winter 209, p.103]

    I had some time to get into toe jam, seattle, he's frank, and should i stay or should i blow before this cd was available. in the past I had some time to get into toe jam, seattle, he's frank, and should i stay or should i blow before this cd was available. in the past i've bought cds with less than four good songs, and i like most fatboy slim, so i picked this up through amazon a few days before the everywhere else release. for me, all of these songs have a getting to know you period, by which i mean they started as okay songs and got better after each of the first few times i listened to them.
