Palookaville (2004)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Oct 05, 2004; Lead Performance: Fatboy Slim

Should we call him Fatman? Club king Slim, a.k.a. Norman Cook, seems to have grown up a little on Palookaville, judging by melancholy numbers like ''Put It Back Together.''

As for tracking on the Bootsy Collins-assisted cover of ''The Joker, ''let's not and say we did.
