Neatly edited sounds with no reflection time. TC's good mix projects, "DJ Kicks" and "Abductions & Reconstructions" had tracks average about 2:30 before transitioning into the next. "Outernational"'s tracks are 1:30, and that's not enough time to get into a groove or mood before the next ugly transition. It plays like a sample medley instead of a CD. And where as TC's previous CDs have held international sounds up high in interesting combinations, these tracks are filled with stereotypical sounds--a vocalist crying "Rastaman!" or "Rastafari!" over a reggae beat as though it means something is getting old. And track #17, "Expo in Tokyo," has a downright juvenile, insulting Oriental riff that kills awesome organ notes. Buy this to play at parties where everyone is bantering and no one is really listening to the music. TC obviously took this one very lightly, so you should too and hope their next one is more contemplative.
