Okay, here we go: "You've Come A Long Way, Baby" was easily one of the most entertaining albums I've ever heard. Filled with tons of fun party tracks and at least four classic anthems ("The Rockafeller Skank", "Right Here Right Now", "Gangster Tripping", and "Praise You"), it was THE pinnacle of big beat. However, there was no way for Fatboy Slim to create "You've Come A Long Way Baby II" without it sounding like a parody or weak imitator.

So instead, Mr. Norman Cook decided to delve into the realms of funk, gospel, and house - and it's incredible. There are some moments here that are very much big beat, such as "Ya Mama", but the album's real peaks are in the deeper dance tracks. "Weapon of Choice" is futuristic funk, "Drop The Hate" and "Song For Shelter" are wonderful house songs, and "Sunset (Bird Of Prey)" is a great trance tune from a non-trance artist. Even the Macy Gray tracks, which I was very skeptical about, are stellar.

So no, this doesn't stick to the Fatboy Slim blueprint, and that's a good thing. If you're willing to try something new, this is your album. I was very impressed - Fatboy Slim does it again.
