A batch of funky breakbeats, a crateful of kitschy samples and some guest vocals by big-lunged divas and rappers-of-the-moment will only take you so far. And let's face it: By 1997, Coldcut had ridden that soul train to the end of the line.

Maybe that's why it took the pioneering electro-dance duo of Jon More and Matt Black nine years to follow up their last studio disc Let Us Play. Or maybe it's because they were busy DJing live, developing software, hosting radio shows and running their Ninja Tune label. Whatever. We just know that when you make folks wait nearly a decade for an album, it better be a knockout.
