Alpha - Pepper (1998)

A collection of remixes and rarities from the trip-hop collective.

Admittedly, I'm not huge on the album as a whole - I usually start halfway at 'Slim (Underdog Remix)' and ride it out to the end - but holy shit, a few tracks are golden.

'Pepper' is a must-hear for subwoofer fans. If you could record the sound of nostalgia, it'd sound like 'Over'. And the ultimate, easily one of my favorite tracks of all time, is one you might have heard as the mistitled 'Music to Fuck To', misattributed to Portishead... it's actually Alpha's 'Firefly', remixed here by Receiver.

Who begins a star?
