Whenever somebody tells me that a record label has picked completely the wrong singles from an album, I always smile knowingly and think of Resist. While "Hide U", "Catch", and "Suicide" may have been great drum'n'bass singles, this was in no way a drum'n'bass album. So all the dance heads who heard it told their friends it was crap, and all the trip-hoppers - who this SHOULD have been marketed to - totally missed out. Then again, maybe that's not the marketing department's fault - how anyone can think "Harder", "I Want It All", and "Hungry" are anything other than brilliant is beyond me. Resist is every great idea Lamb ever had condensed into 40 minutes, without a minute wasted. So, quietly, and without the deserved fanfare, Kosheen snuck out the millenium's first trip-hop masterpiece. And nobody noticed. Life's a bitch sometimes.
