You Can't Beat A Bit Of Bullion!: Goldie: Timeless (Metalheads/ffrr)

Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 5 August 1995

TO VENTURE INTO Goldie's world you must suspend conventional notions of time. Double-speed breakbeats fly past at irregular intervals; solemn strings swell, as if for an eternity; seemingly random bass pulses hit the gut, rather than the ear; and, most of all, singers or snatches of dialogue linger in the foreground, seemingly intent on pursuing a path of their own.
