The new David Dyrne Fatboy Slim two disc musical set themed around Imelda Marcos is....well...it's like letting Paul make a Beatles record with no feedback about how it's going.
It's got its high points, but the sum is less than the total of its parts.
It even has a Heart guitar line in one song - point off.
Time for David and Jerry and Tina and Chris to get back together and see where they might go next.
This disc is a 5.
Mika has two discs out and my ten and twelve year olds love them and have infected their friends.

Then I will tell you its secret origin.
Time for some user reports of new stuff!
