This is the first "Copy Controlled" album I bought, and is the one I have the most trouble with. Occasionally when I unpause it, the player will simply refuse to read the CD or jump to the last track. When it gets to the end, the player will often make a noise somewhat like a pig attempting a bowel movement.

Despite this somewhat annoying flaw in the presentation, the album itself is quite good. A logical follow up from Mezzanine, it has a similar urgent beat and mood. Though there's no Karmacoma or Teardrop, the songs here stand up well. Sinéad O'Connor is featured, providing vocals for What Your Soul Sings, Special Cases, and A Prayer for England. Her voice is well suited to these songs, and What Your Soul Sings is a classic. I still prefer Mezzanine by a fair margin.

The "hidden" track after Antistar is odd and pretty much pointless, though it could work as atmosphere, I guess.
