You have to encourage British drum and bass producers who aren't afraid to mix it up a little and borrow influences from elsewhere; this is what Chase and Status have done whilst still retaining the harsher and darker side of drum and bass. The record actually starts of on a melodic uplifting vibe with 'Can't Get Enough' which has a pleasant enough set of riff and vocals. However, there's a slight dip in quality with the next track 'Music Club'; the glockenspiel-influenced hook that runs through the track threatens to sound annoying although the fusty old man vocal samples go beyond threatening - it's a concept track that I just can't get on board with. The duo take a breather from breakbeat and plunge head on into UK hip-hop with the help of Kano; and to be fair to them, it's a pretty good effort with memorable chorus samples and Kano's lyrics are entertaining enough.

It's back to more drum and bass beats and 'Street Life' is laced with impressive melancholic and intelligent beats. The lyrics flirt with ghetto life and turf war and you kinda hope Chase and Status are doing this for parody reasons a la Freestylers rather than covering a theme in ernest that has been done to death.

Things get heavier and even better with Smash TV; Axl Rose samples sit splendidly with speaker-ripping jungle beats which are slowed down to cause maximum impact and the same darkness appears on 'Pieces' although that track is punctured with melodic vocals; the result is an awesome dichotomous unsettling and sultry treat.

The duo really show their musical talents on 'Eastern Jam' where Indian female vocal samples are spliced with slow burning catchy hip-hop beats.

This album is excellent. That should be sufficient, but to clarify, i'll say a few more words.

It pretty much delivers on every track, flows amazingly well as an album, combines various genres including soul, hip-hop, breakbeat and drum & bass (of course) in a very original way. I bought this album yesterday and I've probably listened to it over 10 times! I bought it just for the last track "Is it worth it" which I thought was original as I was not expecting the bassline, given the style of the song to begin with. But its always a risk buying an album for just 1 track, in case the rest of the album sounds like your ex-girlfriend's younger brother playing on his xylophone - original for all the wrong reasons or just plain terrible. But I have not been disappointed! I haven't been able to stop listening to it, and I haven't had this reaction to an album, especially a d&b album, for a long time.

I imagine there will be those hardcore d&b fans who say its not true to d&b, i.e. the same people that think Pendulum - Hold Your Colour, isn't true. Firstly, this album is better than Hold Your Colour, (which I think is a great album), but secondly, I'm not that concerned (and you shouldn't be either) with "true to" or "not true to" a particular genre. This album is just good music, pure and simple. That's where its strength lies (in my humble opinion), its not just a "drum & bass" album which alienates everyone except the 0.05% of the population who can continually bang their head to the same repetitive beat for 10 minutes and not pass out. For most of the tracks, you wouldn't realise its a d&b album specifically until the rhythm kicks in.

Like any good album, there are multiple amazing tracks: Pieces feat.

2008 has been a good year for Drum and Bass. We've seen London Elektricity's "Syncopated City", Danny Byrd's highly acclaimed debut album, "Supersized" and now there's this to put the icing on the cake.

Don't expect generic basslines that you might have found in C&S' earlier works, In this album you can see that they've grown up a bit are now widening the genre with sounds no one's heard before.

Can't Get Enough opens the album spectacularly and it couldn't have a more suitable name, it's too short. 9/10

Music Club contains lots of cultural samples to prove Chase and Status' new flavours. 9/10

The next track, "Against all Odds feat Kano" is a fast paced rap track which comes as a nice surprise for a dnb album. 9/10

Streetlife is the next track to be delivered in More than Alot. Chilled beats, smooth vocals and a nice bass hold this great track together. 9/10

Lets face it, if you've been listening to Drum and Bass recently, I find it hard to believe that you haven't heard the next track, "Smash TV". I don't really need to explain how big this tune is. 10/10

Pieces is probably my favourite my favourite track from More than Alot. It starts with nice chilled sounds accompanied by singing and then changes completely into a jump up heavy bassline dnb track. 10/10

Eastern Jam is a great dubstep track and if you're into that kinda thing, you're probably gonna love it. If, like me, you're not exactly a fan of dubstep, you'll probably still like this cos this isn't any regular generic dubstep. 7/10 (but if i was a fan of dubstep this'd probably be a 10)

Foundation is a short 50 seconds "Skit" so there's not really any need for me to give this a rating.
