"I got the cd only after downloading about 3 of Scooter's songs off of the net. 'How Much Is The Fish' being the first, and then 'F%^k The Millenium' being the next. I was immediatly in love. I finally got this cd and couldn't be happier. It is limited edition and so awesome, it even has it's own print number built into the cd cover. The four wall fold out cd holder makes me want to frame the durn thing. Just about the best of what Scooter has to offer. I am very happy."
The Definition of Techno

"Scooter are the greatest techno band in the world. This album, their best, is a very good reason why. Every moment is perfect, every note happens just when it should, and the electric atmosphere it creates doesn't let up.You have to like any band that uses the "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" melody as an intro, and then names it "Keyser Soze." The calm intro builds to a crescendo and eventually gives way to "Watch Out," a straight-ahead techno blast. Good song, but then "Faster Harder Scooter" shows up and the disc really hits its stride."Faster Harder Scooter" is the coolest song ever.After that, it's "Well Done Peter," which I sometimes skip past but which is a fine piece of techno. Without "F*** the Millenium," I never would have heard of Scooter, so that gets an automatic (but still deserved) A+. Sheffield Dave, a.k.a. the Screaming Lord, takes out the metal guitar again for "The Revolution," which is just a great song. The first time you hear them change where the beat is halfway through, you'll be hooked."Psycho" is perfect for driving on a rainy day. Well, really, this whole album is, but especially this track. The last five tracks on this disc are flawless, pounding techno, with some very cool synth lines and rhythms and a bit more inspired shouting from Dave. The bonus tracks are good, especially the "F*** the Millenium" single mix and "Age of Love," which will make you want to buy the album of the same name from which it is taken. If you want to get into Scooter, this is the place to start. If you want to get into techno, this is the place to start. This is simply a superb album, start to finish, and you will be happy you bought it."

"I recently heard this excellent album while travelling in Sweden, home country of Scooter. Anyone who likes Prodigy would do well to check Scooter out. If 'back to the heavyweight jam' sounds familiar, it is because you have a copy of KLF 'White Room'. I am not sure if there is a connection between the two groups but it would not surprise. Best track 'F%&k the Millenium'. Warning - do not play while driving or you WILL get a speeding ticket."
