After seeing Propellerheads on my recommended list several times, I finally gave in and bought the ndroll CD. Terrific choice! I loved the album from the opening song. Propellerheads are amazingly versatile and the range of styles and moods exhibited on this disc are astounding. The covers "History Repeating" (Featuring Shirley Bassey) and "On Her Magesty's Secret Service" are absolutely first rate.

Released January 26, 1998. 1. Take California Lyrics. The debut (and only) album by English electronic/big beat duo Propellerheads. It features, perhaps most prominently, Spybreak!, a song popularized by its use in The Matrix, as well as Bang On!, used in Wipeout 64; On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, used in Tony Hawk’s film The End, and Take California, used in the first television commercial for the Apple iPod.

Album · 1998 · 13 Songs. 1998 Propellerheads. Licensed by Wall of Sound. More By Propellerheads.

This album has an average beat per minute of 127 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 82/183 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page.

A shame because their debut and final album, ndroll, is pretty awesome. Or if you'd rather I be more specific, it's a superb achievement of dance music featuring turntable manipulation, live drumming, well-used samples, and a healthy selection of guest vocalists. The album kicks off with the chill and bassy "Take California", providing a nice introduction to the Propellerheads' sound. Vocal samples, a simple bassline, and Will White's live drum loops all make appearances in this track to lovely effect.

Talk about Propellerheads - Decksandrumsandrockandroll


Cemav
Great pressing, not remastered at all, pure original press. My copy is superb, clean as a whistle, excellent definition and soundstage which you really need for this album. Such an important album in EDM world, defined a genre. An absolute must for any EDM collection!
Usishele
Hi Richard!I can confirm the opposite. Mine sounds great! One of my best sounding vinyls.
Mavegelv
Hi Oleg, thanks for your reply. Yes it's great quality (meanwhile I've changed), but actually I don't like how the remastered album sounds, I prefer the first pressing. Thanks again!
Mitars Riders
Is anybody can confirm, that this vinyl sounds like a creased cassette tape, or it's just mine?
