Fatboy Slim's (Norman Cook) 2006 album The Greatest Hits- Why Try Harder? will stand to be one of the most intricate, impressive compilations of electronic/dance music ever created. Just as Herbert Elmert and his electonische muzik, Max Mathews and his computer generated voice, and John Chowning and his frequency modulation will always be paired in electronic music history, Norman Cook will be paired with the father of mainstream electronic music. The album features eighteen of Fatboy Slim's all-time best pieces.

Instead, Why Try Harder goes for the gloss, and does so triumphantly. Praise You," "Weapon of Choice," and "Right Here, Right Now" are all instantly recognizable tracks and packed so tight together that they create a whirlwind of big beat excitement. The curious can now skip the so-so Palookaville since its best is here, but those bitten by the big beat bug will have to go further, because Cook's best productions weren't always his singles. Two new numbers - "Champion Sound" and "That Old Pair of Jeans" with Lateef of Blackalicious.
