Amazon.co.uk

Expansion Team, as the name suggests, sees Dilated Peoples honing their old school hooks and breaks to ensnare purists and the mainstream alike. Over down-tempo beats, eerie Hitchcock strings ("Clock Work"), dinner jazz ("Pay Attention!"), 70s cop-show horns (Hardhitters) and DJ Babu's turn-table gymnastics ("Dilated Junkies"), their exhausting couplets wage war on the talents of fellow hip hop crews; while simultaneously validating their boasts of rhyme supremacy. Yet it's the instantly addictive slow-roller, "Worst Come to Worst", that best proves their point. Along with the "nobody comes close" taunts, there's a lot of regulation second album material: "Trade Money" assures that success isn't without its downsides ("Since last year I've accumulated more money / on top of that I got a lot of people acting funny"), "Proper Propaganda" has a pop at the media and there are countless reassurances that success doesn't mean principles will be compromised. Their messages may not be new, but the Dilated Peoples' genius is delivering them with simmering tunes that make them worth hearing again. --Dan Gennoe

Well, what can I say? this album is amazing. almost every track is full of massive flowing beats and lyrics that demand you to turn your volume up and up. This is probably my favourite album I have at the moment and I recommend any real hip-hop fan should buy it.

This is one of the best album ive ever heard in my life,it includes amazing tracks such as: "worst comes to worst" and "heavy rotation" (feat.tha-liks)including big name producers in hip-hop such as the alchemist and Gangstarr's other part, Dj premier, its definetely a must have for any real hip-hop fan or producer and if any of you guys are already a fan of the peoples i suggest that you check out dj babu's projects with the beat junkies or his new album "Duck season Vol.1" peace, B.I.G - B

Although weaker than dilated's debut album, this one has everything. Clever and fresh rhymes, amazin turntabalism (thanks to the legand DJ babbu) and a huge variety in style.I have been a huge fan of dilated ever since i listened to a few of their tracks on thier debut album 'The Platform'. I think their first album was alot more solid than their new one, However this is a must for any Hip-hop fan who enjoys orginal beats, meaningful lyrics and outstanding cuts.
Take my advice, BUY THIS ALBUM YOU WONT REGRET IT!!

Aaaaah - what can I say...
I tried SO hard to like this album, I really did. Individual songs, heard seperately can be stunning (Heavy Rotation, Worst Comes To Worst, Live On Stage etc.). I don't know what it is about these guys though - I just can't ever seem to listen to an entire album!!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that this is a bad album at all. What I am saying is that, in my opinion, there are too many very average tracks on here. Many of them just simply don't stand out enough to catch my attention - it easily fades into background music when you leave it on the stereo, it's not that they're bad, but when I listen to an album for the first time, I like it to MAKE me sit up and listen!!!
It's a shame, because it seems that there are always 3 or 4 of these stunning tracks on each album, but there's just too much filler!! They have the potential and ability occasionally to be BRILLIANT. By all means, buy this album - it's worth it for the stand-out tracks but you might be disappointed with the overall product. Hope this has helped.

Bought this on the after listening to their single on the radio and didnt expect much. But I have to say its one of my favourite CDs. I have introduced this many people I know, even my sister who's fave song is "Barbie Girl" bought this. The best songs are -

Live on Stage
Worst comes worst
Clockwork
Heavy Rotation
Self Defence

Format: Audio CD
Once again, the Dilated Peoples have come out of the left-field of hip-hop and delivered a classic piece of music. The standard is set high with the first track "Live On Stage". The standard is rarely lowered after that. "Worst Comes to Worst" is a rather slow affair, but still hits home. However, the middle of the album is where the Dilated Peoples really hit home, and help to buil up big expectations for theor third album which should be dropping at the end of this year. Basically, "Self Defense" is one of my all-time favourite hip-hop tracks. The violins combined with the big, deep beats create an experience rarely heard on hip-hop tracks. I would buy this album just for this one track.
Overall, this is a fantastic album. It contains some brilliant, loud hip-hop anthems, and at the same time delivers some rather more chilled tunes. A definate must for every hip-hop fan.

I bought this C.D when it first came out and its still in my C.D player. Its just one of those amazing albums that you can listen to right the way through, without skipping tracks. I consider the style as proper hip-hop and the 'peoples' noticeable sound of big beats and jazzy tunes, mixed with amazing lyrical skills from Iriscience and Evidence stays through the album with no flawed song. Theres also great scratching from beat junkie, 'Dj Babu', and appearances from Defari, J-Rocc, Melo-D and Tha Liks. Wether you're a true hip-hop fan, or a newcomer to hip-hop, I sincerely recommend this album, its just pure skills.

the california rappers return after a year since theur debute album(the platform).

the style of the album is hardcore rap & the album sound great. the album also featured the single-"worst comes to worst" and other tight tracks like- live on stage, clock work,pay attention...
this album is worth to buy, and one of the best album that come out in the end of the year 2001.
