    On 2009's I THINK WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT, his first full-length outing as the BPA (Brighton Port Authority), Norman Cook, best known as Fatboy Slim, sails in familiar waters, offering up peppy electro-pop with plenty of guest stars on board. Highlights include Iggy Pop's dry turn on a cover of the Monochrome Set's "He's Frank" and the giddy "Toe Jam," which features both David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The beats are dandy, tweaked-up period pieces from Sixties ska to Eighties R&B."
    Spin (p.78) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his mash of rock, soul, and rocksteady is distinctly collaborative....Emmy the Great shines on 'Seattle,' a sunny, commercial-ready pop confection."
    Alternative Press (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Willfully eclectic and sporadically energetic, the BPA brew a schizoid stew....Cook's eager-to-please melodic sensibilities can still get jaws a-smilin'."
    CMJ - "[S]howcasing distinct vocal personality and rock vibe electronics from a slew of singers..."
    Billboard (p.33) - "[A] swaggering set of proper pop songs....The Fatboy trademarks are here, but they're blended with the unique musicality of each guest."
    Q (Magazine) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] slew of vocalists showcase themselves to mostly positive effect against Cook's trademark Fatboy-Slim-esque backdrops. Martha Wainwright is deliciously sensual on the languid 'Spade'..."
    Blender (Magazine) (p.61) - 3 stars out of 5 -- ""The album's soft heart is 'Seattle,' in which folk singer Emmy the Great sweetly, and aptly, celebrates fresh starts."
    Clash (magazine) (p.111) - "[With] party master Fatboy Slim at the controls, there is the expected bounce and snap here, keeping the album moving along nicely as guest after guest steps up to add to this impressive, enjoyable [selection]..."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Highlights abound: Iggy Pop opens it all up, adding his vocals to 'He's Frank,' while the sentimentality of 'Island' and 'Superlover' show a kind of razzled tenderness full of hope and regret."
