A true forgotten classic! This album defines the sound of mid nineties jungle/drum and bass, from Boymerang - Where are they now?
Some classics indeed - Soul Beat Runna was a huge tune at the time and is a firm favourite with many DnB heads. ACID does it for me, lush, organic yet dark sweeps and drum stabs. The reknowned You Like It Like That also features on the album. Many inspirations for current production originate here.
Not one track that lets this masterpiece down. Buy it, turn the lights out and enjoy. And if the producer ever reads this - please please give us more!!

Cannot recommend highly enough.
I rmember buying this on vinyl the day after hearing it at a mate's house a decade ago. Just got the CD after realising my copy has been temporarily misplaced... It really is special. Half of the tracks on here are fairly forgetable and to be honest i've always skipped a few.
However, the other half more than make up for it. Incredibly lush and sensual soundscapes laid over hypnotic beats, with clever basslines that fit perfectly. Trying to describe it makes me go all soppy for my youth.
If you were into this scene in the mid 90s, then this is a must have. If not, then check this album out to get a feel for it.

i bought this cd because i love the song 'still', which i first heard on 'prototype years' compiled by the one and only Grooverider. although for me it remains the best song on the cd, the rest of the tunes are very good and are in keeping with the dark (and sometimes even sinister!) feel of the album. If youre like me and love deep, dark and intelligent jungle but cant tolerate the mega-fast, cacofonous noise that some artists produce, then add this little gem to your collection.

Great DrumN'Bass Album 24 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Boymerang's album "Balance Of The Force" is another album that represents the true meaning of Jungle and DnB - fast, mindblowing beats, alongside with Bass level set to blow every speaker, and hypnotic chords.
The grooves on this album can fit every wild party and every Chillout room. Boymerang's intense style is capable of relaxing and chilling and also intense breakdancing or headbanging as you pick your style. The most known track from the album is the first one, "Soul Beat Runna". This track represents the entire feel of the album, although each track stand for itself. The Track also has a videoclip by Guy Nisbett, That really fits the feeling of the track.
My take on the album is that it's quite good, and very true to it's genre, but most other tracks resemble themselves. Other than that, It's a great buy and the grooves are very delicious. Yum.

The Best D&B CD I Own (Maybe) 30 Jun. 2001
By Zach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I would like to start off by saying that any Drum and Bass artist on Astralwerks is excellent. So if you like Drum and Bass and happen to see any CDs by Photek, Source Direct, Adam F, or Boymerang, buy them, you are almost guaranteed to enjoy them (unless you are a lover of all that is evil, sitting in your basement planning the destruction of the entire universe by unleasing a horrible torrent of Val Kilmer films on an unsuspecting public).
The entire CD is awe inspiring, well, beides track 3 which gets on my nerves a little bit because it doesn't seem to fit. With that aside I can say this may be the best Drum and Bass CD ever, unless I want to talk about Photek - Form and Function which has to take the cake.
From the first track 'till the very last (minus track 3) the CD suspends your disbelief with the sheer complexity of the beats. The way Mr. Sutton weaves them together with the almost ambient background sounds is simply stunning. He frequently manipulates the drums to keep the beat interesting, but not so much that it becomes annoying, it merely helps to keep it from being boring.
So many people say that drum and bass is boring and repetitive, but I would have to say that Boymerang and his mates on Astralwerks are slightly different. Even though drum and bass is, at its core, very simple, it can become a beautifully emotonal form of music, but it must be payed attention to.
If you are looking fo dance music, go buy Hybrid Remix and additional production by...; if you want background music, get any of the horribly done, barely affable MTV Party to Go to the bathroom with CDs. And if you don't like drum and bass, shut up and stop pretending like you're a techno guru and go buy some crappy DJ Skribble CD.
Lost Metalheadz members masterpiece 20 Feb. 2007
By Bruce Wayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As Boymerang is been out of the scene since the release of this album, and his final remix, that being the Goldie & KRS-One track "Digital", anyone who is trying to increase their exposure need look no further.

As one of the earlier members of the greatest D&B label on the planet (Metalheadz), Boymerang's creativity, soundscaping, and drum composition are a great ode to the nearly extinct "classic intelligent jungle"...not to be confused with "classic intelligent drum n' bass" or "classic ragga"...

This CD is a memento of where the music was before Drum N' Bass had the definitions it does today...when the producers had to reach a pinnacle of the jungle sound in order to break into something other than ragga, two-step, and broken beats.
A staple of classic DnB. 17 July 2013
By Mechanikal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mr Sutton has outdone himself with this beautiful masterpiece. Instead of making a couple songs that will just end up being dj filler material, he has created a well balanced formula from soaring beauty to a gravel filled punch to the dome. If I had to submit 1 track from here that got me, it would have to be 'Still'. I would list this individual song as one of the most well put together DnB tunes in all of DnB history. I wish this guy hadn't left so suddenly, he had talent and skill that a sizable number of producers today could take some hints from.

Another Average Drum and Bass CD 18 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like many CD's in the Drum and Bass genre, Balance of the Force offers nothing new. The songs not only sound like each other, they sound like a lot of D&B records. I get bored midway through the third song every time, if not earlier.
