Block Rockin' Beats' also won a grammy. Not surprised because it is such a fantastic song. Their second single, 'Setting Sun' has vocals from their first collaboration with Oasis' Noel Gallagher. I first heard the instrumental version of this song off 'The Saint' soundtrack, which is equally good. The rhythm has a rock/techno feeling, and it has a tune which you can dance to. Another good song is 'Lost in the K-Hole', which has a guy saying 'Your ideas, your ideas', and something else that sounds like he's saying it backwards.
Another beautifully made song is 'Where Do I Begin'. This is the second calloboration with Beth Orton, the first being 'Alive Alone' on 'Exit Planet Dust.'
And the last track on the LP, 'The Private Psychedelic Reel' has a (pretty obvious) Psychedelic/Techno beat to it. It is their second best end song (The first being 'The Test' on 'Come With Us') and is their longest end song. There are no vocals, but it has a rhythmic vibe and is very crafty

the 90s rocked quite a bit, all this electronic explosion into the mainstream felt so fresh... Jungle, Drum'n'Bass, Big Beat, (Deep) House, Glitch, Trip Hop, Downtempo, all at once,
