A pretty good CD when you compare it to the release from big beat competitors such as Fat Boy Slim and the Chemical Brothers. I guess the Midfield General's profile is not as big but it allows him to release whatever the fuck he feels like. I 1st got interested in MFG from his Big Beat Boutique release which contains some very funky track choices. The 2nd track on Generalisation, Devil In Sports Casual is a big beat masterpiece complete with police sirens and a mad sample about "you make the music go back and you hear Satan speaking". But the best track for me is track 7 - Midfielding. This has a really stupid but interesting story about native British marsupials travelling to Africa to "kick some butt". I was inspired to search the internet to find the lyrics, but I couldn't find them. I believe that they deserve to be out there for everyone to have a laugh. So I'm gonna waste half an hour transcribing them! Even the Guardian newspaper has made comment about this track being a killer.
