Irish concert company MCD Productions described the album as “one of THE defining records of the ’90s, irrespective of genre”.
The company said the album swings from hip-hop to reggae and jangle pop, showcasing Cook’s ability to break stylistic ground and deliver a “wildly original album filled with imagination, huge hooks and infectious beats”
The album features four UK Top 10 singles: ‘Rockafeller Skank’, ‘Gangster Trippin’, ‘Praise You’ and ‘Right Here Right Now’.
It earned Cook a BRIT Award for best producer and two further nominations for Male Solo Artist and British Single.
