FatBoy Slim – You’ve Come A Long Way Baby

You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby is the second studio album by English big beat musician Fatboy Slim, released on 19 October 1998 by Skint Records. And that record itself was something of a surprise, since it not only exceeded the expectations set by the debut, but came damn close to being the definitive big beat album, rivaling the Chemicals’ second record, Dig Your Own Hole. Then again, when a record is this forceful and catchy, it doesn’t need to break new stylistic ground — the pleasure is in hearing a master work. And there’s no question that Cook is a master of sorts — You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby is a seamless record, filled with great imagination, unexpected twists and turns, huge hooks, and great beats. The album received critical acclaim, particularly for its beats and hooks, and is considered a benchmark album in big beat music. This stuff makes you feel happy. It makes you feel hip. It’s got great energy, great texture, and absolutely perfect timing. Over and over again. In 1999, it was certified 3× platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), 3xPlatinum by the Australian Record Industry Association and platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2000, the album was ranked number 81 in Q magazine’s readers’ poll of the “100 Greatest British Albums Ever”
