Fatboy Slim

Palookaville Astralwerks

The "clown" prince of the big beat, Fatboy Slim uses a gentler approach on his fourth, self-deprecatingly titled album, Palookaville. Although there are moments of goofball head-banging/fist-pumping madness ("Jingo," "Slash Dot Dash"), the presence of guests such as Lateef, Blur's Damon Albarn, Bootsy Collins, and fellow DJ-turned-crooner Justin Robertson make Palookaville a softer, kinder version of a Fatboy Slim epic. This is not necessarily the best news for the frat party audience he has cultivated. His quieter songs are not developed enough to make up for the lack of club numbers, which will probably leave fans of late-Nineties anthems such as "Praise You" wanting more.
