Leftism

Leftism spans most of Paul Daley and Neil Barnes' singles output from 1992 to 1995 (excepting only "Not Forgotten") and adds several new tracks. Far from being just a stale progressive house LP, it spans a wide range of influences (tribal, dub, trance) and includes a good mixture of vocal tracks (with Toni Halliday, John Lydon, and Earl Sixteen) and instrumental workouts. ~ John Bush

Review:

Musician - "...Leftfield takes a decidedly eclectic approach to dance music, drawing from a variety of influences instead of relying on a single style. Not only does that keep the groove from becoming predictable, but it allows the band to indulge a wide range of musical moods..."
Q - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
Q - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995 - "...Britain's most comfortably at-home dance record yet..."
NME - Ranked #28 in NME's 'Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995 - "...encompasses South American percussion, dub, the icy techno-goth tonsils of Toni Halliday and Lydon's fearsome apocalyptic warbling."
Q - Ranked #34 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums"
Alternative Press - Included in AP's "10 Essential Dance Albums That Rock" - "...The mood varies throughout, but the apocalyptic message still burns through."
Melody Maker - Ranked #13 on Melody Maker's list of 1995's 'Albums Of The Year' - "A clean, modernist classic....Future dance at its most visionary and accessible..."
