"Midnight Vultures" is so stale and cheesy, Beck's vocals are so lifeless, boring or even irritating when he tries to sing in the high notes. I don't like Prince, I can't stand funk music either, It is old and boring music, so there was no way I would like this record. I prefer the songs that are not influence from funk music.

Highlights: "Get Real Paid", "Hollywood Freaks", "Broken Train"

"Just for a Day" is a dream pop record by the numbers. All the songs are pretty solid, but the whole project is characterless. Its sound is predictable and too calculated.

Highlights: "Waves"

Moby was impressed from Prodigy's big beat sound and "Everything Is Wrong" was directly influenced from Prodigy's "Experience", but Moby's attempt to approach the band's sound was unsuccessful. The record aged like milk, it is so cheesy, but to be honest I can't believe that it was well received, on the first place.

Highlights: "Hymn", "Into the Blue"

"Trouble Will Find Me" is really slow, really passionless with lifeless vocals. Individually none of the songs is bad, but as a whole it is so bland. It desperately needed some faster or catchier songs, or at least some songs with actual chorus.

Highlights: "Demons"
