The Greatest Hits: Why Try Harder by Fatboy Slim

Album Reviews - The Greatest Hits: Why Try Harder by Fatboy Slim

Norman Cook underestimate him musically at your peril. That's what the police at Brighton beach did in 2002  then 250,000 people turned up to his party and two ended up dead. Certainly, there's as much hyper dance nonsense here that still gets the adrenaline pumping (‘The Rockafeller Skank’, ‘Sunset (Bird Of Prey)') as there is of the grossly overfamiliar ('Praise You’, Fatboy’s remix of 'Brimful Of Asha'). He’s one of the greatest nostalgia acts for sure, but for most of us. Norm’s hits soundtracked as many blissfully debauched mash-ups as they did adverts for hatchbacks. And that picture of the obese kid on the artwork is still pretty funny.
