  • No need to worry about Apollo 440 turning intelligent in the wake of electronica's growing experimental leanings. Their third album overall, Getting High on Your Own Supply is a ride through sampladelic breakbeat that's just as mad as 1997's Electro Glide in Blue. Seemingly oblivious that even their youngest listeners could spot their samples, Apollo 440 pillage Led Zeppelin and Status Quo (among others), blending styles from trance, ska, hip-hop, dub, and disco with a tossed-off feel that's quite charming. From the breakout single "Stop the Rock" to the unabashed, old-school silliness of "Cold Rock the Mic" and a remix of last year's "Lost in Space" theme which fuses black metal with jungle breakbeats, Getting High on Your Own Supply is another dumb but infectious party album to file alongside Fatboy Slim's You've Come a Long Way, Baby. ~ John Bush
Professional Reviews
Q (2/02, p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Their rock/dance mix is a potent brew..."

Alternative Press (4/00, p.78) - 3 out of 5 - "...the band continually intersperse their head-banging riffs with vinyl scratching and machine-generated beats, while looping even their most rock-oriented tracks ad infinitum....proving most fertile on its instrumental tracks..."

CMJ (2/28/00, p.22) - "...Sporting beats bigger than the Titanic and a smattering of sampled guitar licks...most cuts on the album are louder-than-life homages to both head-banging metal and butt-breaking grooves..."
