I really liked More Than A Lot when it was first released. It provided a unique twist on different aspects of drum and base and dubstep that worked really well. This is the same kind of concept, but this time Chase and Status are revisiting some of the classic dance movements that have taken place over the last 20-30 years or so. Count on me is a brilliant rave track reminiscent of some of the Prodigy's earlier work, but with a more modern twist. On the note of the Prodigy, there is even a sample from Charly on the track Deeper Devotion. I love the Prodigy, so from my point of view it is a definite plus point that this album is clearly influenced by one of my favourite artists.

I also picked up a bit of a DJ Shadow style vibe from some of the tracks, especially with regards to some of the more experimental/hip hop influenced tracks. Cheers to Chase and Status for also dropping a garage track in there as well (Blk & Blu), that really took me back! :)

The reggae vocals on some tracks I am not so keen on, but that is just my own musical preference. There are some tracks on the album I am not completely sold on, but that is usually the case with most albums.

I think if you are around 30 or over, you will probably appreciate this more than if you are much younger or aren't familiar with some of the older influenced tracks. Although saying that, this album could introduce you to a whole new range of older dance music you never even knew existed.

Not a perfect album, but there are some really decent tracks on there that make it well worth the money in my opinion. If you want more of More Than A Lot, then this probably isn't the album for you. If you have a more varied taste when it comes to dance music, then just skip forward to track 3 and enjoy the album!

One of the criticisms levelled at No More Idols was that it was a couple of track too long. This album, by contrast, is more like 10 or 11 tracks too long. The opener 'Gun Metal Grey' is a tedious dirge that blunders in a stoned haze into the uninspiring dance-hall nursery rhyme of 'International' so that by the time the first of the singles is over it feels like this brand new machine has barely got past first gear. 'Count on Me' is a unapologetic homage to early 90's rave that at least manages to hit some kind of high, mediocre by the standard Chase and Status set on their previous albums and over far too quickly. After this the clouds of dope smoke grow thicker and the artists seem to drift into a comma. 'Blk and Blu' sidles past keeping it's head down with a disappointing Major Lazer collaboration skulking behind. 'Machine Gun', when it arrives, is so out of context that what sounded like a four-to-the-floor banger on the radio is jarring and uncomfortable.

'Gangsta Boogie' is straight up hip-hop and while there is nothing wrong hip-hop as such it seems as though this track only exists to demonstrate how well C&S can 'do' hip-hop. 'Heaven Knows' fills a similar purpose demonstrating how adept they are at power ballads. Then comes the third drum and bass offering which, as Louis points out, is fading away almost from the moment it starts.

Then comes the dull 90's interlude, four filler tracks with little to distinguish them, showcasing C&S's old-school credentials before they remember the lessons from 'Music Club' on More Than Alot (i.e build it up to a big crescendo). The final track almost manages to make up for the vacuous nonsense that preceded it but it still feels as though they are barely alive rather than "so alive!" as Jacob Banks would have it.

Not on the level of the two previous albums but worth a listen none the less. Personally being a fan a the deeper sounds such as saxon and the very dance centric, no problem and smash tv I most enjoyed, Machine Gun, Gangsta Boogie and both mixes of International. Not a fan of either Moko songs or blk and blu which was awful live in nottingham, but alive, lost and not found and heaven are all decent additions. the rest is average filler for me.

Worst thing C&S have done to date. Not quite sure what they were thinking. It;s like a showcase of genres they have painted by numbers.

I am a big C&S fan and have seen them live on more than one occasion. The way they transcend the different forms of dance music and serve up a unique yet post modern take on the genre is what I like best about them. For me they're the Prodigy of their day and although this album isn't perfect I am very happy with it. I think it suffers from a little over ambition at times but when it gets it right with the x2 single releases to date it really nails it. For me the Pusha T song is poor but that's down to me being a Clipse fan and expecting more from him on this. They could have got anyone to do what he did with that song.

I like the remixes, especially the Andy C mix of the latest single.

I recommend this album to one and all. As a previous reviewer put it - instantly accessible.......
