Review by DjBatman
4 stars out of 4

Get prepared for another wild ride in the ocean of big beats and grrrroovy (and weird) samples with our pals Bentley Rhythm Ace! Even if you'll spot a few familiar sounds from their previous works, there is still a lot of new stuff to have fun with: live drums and percussion meet funky (the ubiquitous Jimmy Castor Bunch is here, too) and -surprise- exotica! Nancy Sinatra and Harry Belafonte are sampled together with Piero Umiliani's 1970 number "Open Space" (providing a bassline for "Theme from 'Gutbuster'") that was recycled from one of the East Tempo CDs released by Right Tempo (one of the most active Italian labels - together with Hexacord, Plastic, Beat and others - in the area of reprints of exotic/film/library and other weird stuff from Italy's once forgotten musical underground). I was a bit perplexed at the noisy orgiastic vocal bits of "A lot of stick (but not much carrot)", but those BRA guys are definitely clever at spotting tasty samples (I loved that kind of -how can I say?- spacey ragga lounge-?!- loop in "Madam your carriage awaits / Sugartown") and also still have that strange inspiration for finding cool and weird titles ("Barry Normal Eyes" and "Busyness Mans Lunch" being a couple of good examples). Ahhhh... I just need tons more of this s#!te! And now give me back my Bellini cocktail and that Morricone 7".
