Rhythm and Stealth is the second studio album by Leftfield, released on 20 September 1999. It reached number 1 on the UK Albums Chart. It was nominated for the 2000 Mercury Music Prize. Matt Hendrickson of Rolling Stone said, "The album's jumble of epic sounds is a blessing and a curse: Rhythm and Stealth never develops a sustained, full-on groove, but it makes for a mind-melding headphone adventure.
The one track that might make fans yearn for the heady days of 1993, "El Cid," begins with the ephemeral synth for which Leftfield has been known, but soon moves into breakbeat territory. Hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa makes an appearance on the excellent "Afrika Shox," taking the mic on a brutal electro throwdown. As Rhythm and Stealth shows time and time again, it's definitely not 1993 anymore, and Leftfield has moved on with a grace and mastery of production seldom seen in the dance world.
Rhythm and Stealth is the quintessential "difficult sophomore" album. Leftfield definitely want us to recall Leftism, but they also point a defining finger into the future.

After Leftfield's debut album Leftism, which was released in 1995, it took 4 years for the London-based producers duo to release the sequel. Sounding completely different than the first album, Rhythm And Stealth was worth waiting for. It sounds more diverse and solid than its predecessor and contains exciting collaborations with Roots Manuva on the track "Dusted" and Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa on the dance floor killer "Afrika Shox", which was accompanied by a state-of-the-art and shocking video.
