Goldie - Timeless


#1

sounds dated.


#2

It sounds of its time. But that was the best time for drum & bass. Still think it’s a great album.

Or is this a joke thread I’m replying seriously to?


#3

I’m with you there.

Saw it performed live at the RFH a few years ago and it sounded amazing. Adam Betts’ drumming was blinding as ever.


#4

Great, great work.


#5

Never really liked that album. People were incredibly snooty about jungle at that time, then this album came out and suddenly everyone was loving drum and bass. Nah, mate.


#6

Inner city shiteeee


#7

I like Timeless


#8

Saw Betts perform his own material in a church last year. Absolutely nuts what he can do.


#9

Yes indeed. Picked up Colossal Squid at a TTT gig. Very good.


#10

Fair do’s. It’s a half decent album. Waited 23 years to post this :wink:

Seriously though. Back in the mid 90’s Jungle was so random and challenging (in a good way to the norm) people would just buy anything Jungle related, such a Jungle Massive Vol. 2 or whatever. Almost like people had to get onboard with this new genre - then Goldie came along and Radioheaded the genre before Radiohead Radioheaded themselves. It’s a good album but tries too hard to be the Classical album of Jungle when in reality - the bangers made the genre.

Terrible example, but agree with the post.
