Like the takeout goop they're named for, turntablist-turned-label honcho A-Trak and filterhouse master chef Armand Van Helden aren't about haute cuisine. But their sample-storming full-length debut is undeniable – squarely in the tradition of stoned dance-floor hitmakers from decades past like Deee-Lite, Fatboy Slim and M|A|R|R|S. Five years' worth of primo one-off singles are here, including "aNYway" – a flip of Final Edition's 1979 latter-day disco gem "I Can Do It (Any Way You Want)" – and the goofball "Barbra Streisand." The new stuff is nearly as good. The interstitial skits can get irritating, but the edits come fast, and when those sugar-shock beats drop, all is forgiven.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
