MTV's AMP [Astralwerks, 1997]
Working for the MTV dollar, Caroline wipes out 1996's Wipeout XL--the two repeats, Fluke's "Atom Bomb" and Future Sound of London's "We Have Explosive," are the two killers, and Chem Bros, Prodigy, Orbital, Photek, and the accursed Underworld check in on each. But though I miss the disaster-movie conceit (and Orbital's "Petrol" to go with it), this is an EZ-duz-it tour to sit still for. Before you're good and sick of Tranquility Bass's groovy psychedelica, it's daring you to upchuck at Goldie's pop kitsch instead. Take two Dramamines and hate yourself in the morning.
