The new Fatboy Slim compilation, The Greatest Hits: Why Try Harder, shows that the DJ who originally named himself Norman Cook was, as his detractors alleged, a product of his time. Sure, the erstwhile Housemartins member's formula-- eclectic samples, sloganistic vocal snippets, and an all-around drunken good-time spirit-- was just that, a formula, but it befit an era of peace, blowjobs, and Men in Black. Yes, it was a cheap trick to slow vocal tracks down until they crumble like a worn-out robot, then accelerate them until they blare like a police siren. But the formula was deadly effective, the trick frequently worked.
