"Psyence Fiction" was one of the first introductions to trip-hop for me and I'm glad it is! This is a classic in the genre, probably one of the best trip-hop records period. It has kind of a movie soundtrack feel to it, which is unique. There's also some pretty big features on here (most notably, Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Richard Ashcroft of The Verve) and plenty of great sampling and genre-blending to eat up!

This album, for lack of a better term, is all over the place. At times it felt like a hip-hop album, at times it was the background music to an early Linkin Park song, and then suddenly it’s a Radiohead B-Side. This isn't the worst thing, but often makes it feel like a somewhat uncohesive list of tracks collected together for a semi-enjoyable album.

Favorite track: Rabbit In Your Headlights

I always love revisiting the album that got me into trip-hop. I would even say its the best album of its genre.
