Published November 25, 2004.Fatboy SlimPalookaville (Virgin)This album will probably not go down as Fatboy Slim’s finest hour. There are too many expectations upon FBS for him to rock the beat and shake the house down with his trademark digital manipulations for a slow, contemplative effort like this to take hold. Palookaville is too easy to dismiss after a quick listen, making repeated spins unlikely. But with a little patience this disc holds up (save for a few weak moments) with a complexity that “Rockefeller Skank” never had.—Dave Hayden
