I first got into this album with the help of my philosophy teacher who had to write about the 'beauty' of this album for his exam at university.
He was right, it indeed is a beautiful album. I was also impressed by the eclecticism of the samples. In fact you can find samples of Metallica and Grandmaster Flash (two artists who probably wouldn't under any other circumstances) on "The Number Song".
The standout track for me is 'Midnight in a Perfect World' which is truly soothing with the use of an etheral vocal and dreamy keyboard.
This is a landmark album which eradicates the borders that separate dance music from other genres.
