      Disadvantages

      Still very clever sampling in a new way - for any open minded dance/break beat fan

      The arrangement of samples and rhythmic backgrounds has a faster and more powerful tone compared to it's predecessors - K.Y. E.P. & Lost Horizons.

      1. Come down on Me - The welcome to the album starts with a very mellow background, an older gentleman talking, sampled from a conversation taken about the war and times gone by. Then explodes into drums and guitar to wake you up. A constant drum beat rhythm using electronic keyboards and on the chorus, vocals which have a similarity to John Lydon of Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd fame.

      2. Only time - Once again a relaxing start with tranquil notes, then onto a slightly upbeat samba style. A clever use of slowing a sampled voice right down, ironically which is always saying 'If I only had time' - which is the reason for the extra slow vocal.

      3. Don't stop now - More slowed down sounds this time using the very popular club track from a few years ago, Atlantic Ocean - Waterfalls, with a repeated whispered/echo effect voice saying 'Don't stop now'.

      4.Make things right - Vocals on a loop here are from Terri Walker and the soulful sounds from 'Before you walk out of my life'. With a therapeutic acoustic guitar throughout , lively bass and happy melody.

      5. Shouty track - A scream begins, then the continuous guitar riff from a track called 'Horror show' by Scars. Then the rather pleasant voice 'OK then' 'OK!' - (see the Lemon Jelly 64 - 95 DVD to watch the animation that fits perfectly, in a dark way on there).

      6. Stay with you - You will recognise this vocal sample as soon as the chorus starts, from the 70's song by Gallagher & Lyle - 'I want to stay with you' blended with a dreamy tempo.

      7. The slow train - A male harmonious choir mixed with a pulsating groove, which literally rides along. Slowing and speeding in splendour with the waves of the singing.

      8. A man like me - Ralph Tresvant - Sexuality, do you remember this? He was a member of New Edition in the 80's, which solo artist Bobby Brown was also in. This track is the main stream running through the percussive dance components here.

      9. Go - My favourite track on the whole album. 'Go' a low shrill voice echoes on your speakers or so it is portrayed. It is actually William Shatner's voice, surprisingly. He tells a tale of travel and lists places he has been. From the violin background to the electronic jazz keyboard, mixed with techno pounds and fantastic bass line consistently abundant. A silent pause for a couple of seconds, then a perfect finale
      of rocking guitars and poignant words.
