I got this album gave it a first listen and was a little taken aback because it wasn't what i expected. Original Sin is the king of the jump up so i was getting ready for a frantic on slaught of tunes like D for Danger, Cheater Cheater, Don't be silly etc etc. What you get instead is alot more mature than that.
Original Sin shows that he isn't afraid to change things up a bit and doesn't rest on his laurels. The first tune Therapy has been kicking around the net a while and been on rotation around the clubs and is typical OS, well orchestraed synth driven production.
Theirs alot of throw back tunes on here which sound very grass roots jungle especially Kiss. Where OS excels IMO is in his break downs and intros which are very well put together especially the intro to Dangerous.
Thats the pros now the lows. I find the tracks wear thin a little fast so if you take the album as a whole and your buying this to listen all the way through you may find yourself getting a little bored. If, however you are buying the vinyl or have CD decks then you may find that the album has better longevity as the tracks clearly work better in the mix. This is proven in the free mix Cd that comes with the album as it shows how well certain tunes can be manipulated to a DJ's advantage.
On the whole a good album but as a collection of songs it doesn't quite stand up with no real beginning middle or end.
worth a purchase anyway.
