BBC Review

Saul ‘Chase’ Milton and Will ‘Status’ Kennard are about to become household names with this, their second album. After moderate commercial success with their debut, More Than Alot, the pair of production wizards decided to shift their sights upwards. Having conquered the underground dance scene, they were now looking to the mainstream.

No More Idols is a whirlwind of an album, one that smashes together a hundred genres, from trance to grime, hip hop to indie rock, always keeping the listener on their toes. Songs shift between moods in a heartbeat, pulling the carpet out from under you. And the list of collaborations is both smart and prescient: they’ve teamed up with old pal Plan B, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, White Lies, Clare Maguire and Cee-Lo Green – artists that can pull in a vast audience in their own right.

But the real key to No More Idols is its sustained quality. The production, as you would expect, is massive, and the album is packed with memorable melodies, beats and raps. Even the big radio hits (Let You Go, Blind Faith, Hypest Hype, End Credits) don’t stand out, because for each of them there’s a new track waiting to spring its trap. Opener No Problem combines African tribal rhythms with rampant trance beats, and gets the blood pumping straight away; Hitz has a brooding atmosphere that recalls DJ Shadow, and Tinie Tempah’s cocky rap ("I’m the definition of definitive and catchy") complements it perfectly; rising star Maguire’s gothic vocal on Midnight Caller turns it into an epic power ballad.

This is an album infused with the spirit of 1990s raves – see the video of Blind Faith for more the proof – but updated for a modern audience, tracing a line through all the dance music since and picking up tidbits. It emerges in the here and now triumphant and relevant, and it may usher in a new era of dance domination as the cycle spins once again. At 15 tracks, No More Idols does feel a touch bloated: the White Lies collaboration, Embrace, drones on too long and should probably have been left on the cutting room floor, along with Hocus Pocus. But overall this is an impressive album that could prove a game-changer.

Format: Audio CD
I waited for "No more Idols" with much anticipation and from the first track through to the last, I played it again, again, and again until I didn't know which track was first or last! The album is so innovative, an almost game-changing piece of production that is my definite choice for album of the year 2011. My reviews of each song:

1. No more Problems - 7/10, love the opening but than is a little too fast-paced where i start suffering to keep up.
2. Fire in your Eyes - 8/10 - You can feel the album coming to the boil.
3. Let you Go - 9.5/10 - The music video is what really makes this song. Lyrics are incredible too.
4. Blind Faith 10/10 - The standout song of 2011 and a reminder of the warehouse-garage scene of the 90's.
5. Fool Yourself - 8/10 - Deep, soulful, electric. Plan B and Chase and Status are a match made in heaven.
6 Hypest Hype - 8/10 - A more bouncy song by C&S, again that has you jumping up and down during the build-up.
7 Hitz - 10/10 - Gives you an almost Pineapple Express vibe. Tinie Tempah, steps into the role perfectly.
8 Heavy - 8.5/10 - You want find a tune with bigger bass all year.
9 Brixton Briefcase - 7/10 - Not one of my favorites. Just don't like Cee-Lo Green.
10 Hocus Pocus - 7/10 - I really want to know what they were smoking when this went into production. Because i want some!
11 Flashing Lights - 9/10 - Just close your eyes and see your whole life flashing right before your eyes!
12 Embrace - 10/10 - Along with Blind Faith, the best song(s) of the album. A shift from C&S. For god's sake it was even used in Gossip Girl to perfection!
13 Time - 10/10 - The album is coming to a close, but you just don't want it to end. Delilah's tone of voice goes perfectly with the backing breakbeat.
14 Midnight Caller 8.5/10 - Tranquile.
15 End Credits - I0/10 - The first single of No more Idols and the best way to finish the album.

As someone getting on in years (stopped counting at 40), I wouldn't have expected to find myself buying, let alone reviewing this. But, I bought it and like it so much that I've bought tour tickets. Now I need to find out if there's anyone I know who's still up for this sort of night out... I don't know my D&B from my Elbow, but in my head, this is a great album to bounce about in an embarrassing fashion to.

The best tracks on this album are just outstanding. Its classic Rave music with a Banging
Edge. It gets a bit hardcore in the middle, but its balanced by some 'sweet' harmonious tracks. You'll love it, if you like: dance, dubstep, hardcore, old Drum and Bass, all mixed with some punk attitude.

this album has been stuck on repeat since it arrived through my postbox.

i am falling in love with it more and more with every listen.

an amazing combination of tracks: i jumped around and danced to some and chilled and got goosebumps with others.

favourite tracks would have to be "flashing lights", "time", "midnight caller" (with the beautiful clare maguire) and of course, massive single "blind faith" although there is not one track that i dislike or skip past.

i don't usually take the time to do things like this but i cannot recommend this enough.

5 stars!

Got to say i'm impressed with this album, its an album with recognized favs aswell as a few gems that will suprise alot. the reason for my rating however is due to hype and perhaps a little flopping to the commercial success' of tinie tempah and Dizzie rascal. Both of which really let the album down. AI would say, conversly, that the stand out tracks are actually those which feature lesser known acts. Tinie Tempahs efforts however were a let down, which is perhaps due to the hype he now has surrounding him which really didnt come through in his one track entry. Dizzie's song was- well, misplaced to say the least, it was the weed amognst the flowers. Perhaps these two tracks are for an aquired taste, and admitidly Tinies lyrics do shine somewhat, however its not what suited to the "shallow end" of this music genre that im sure many will want to dip into.
All in all the albums a sucess, in that it collects different musical styles from a varied backgrounds and fuses them into an album that is a credit to them all- Track one to fifteen is a journey!, though as i say the real praise goes to the lesser known artists and to C&S for featuring them.

Its worth a try- no doubt.

A lot of people say they've turned mainstream, and it's true there's definitely a large change in sound since More Than Alot, but I'm not sure mainstream is the right word. There is such a wide range of sound that you couldn't define it in a word. This obviously isn't popular with pure drum 'n' bass and dubstep fans (which I also like), but personally I liked all of it. From the raves of No Problem and Let Me Go to the mellowed sound of Embrace and Midnight Caller, it all has the duo's stamp of brilliant producing. I own and love More Than Alot, but if you want more of that, this isn't for you. The album ranges from drum 'n' bass to rap to some sort of prog. rock, all of it great and something everyone in producing should look to.

For those with a wide ranging taste in music this album is simply brilliant. The number of different genres covered and high quality of songs on this album is amazing. The Stand out tracks are- No Problem, Fire In Your Eyes Let You Go, Blind Faith, Fool Yourself, Hitz, Hypest Hype, Heavy, Hocus Pocus, Time and End Credits.

Yes they may have gone more mainstream but so long as the song quality is still as good as this I can't see why it matters. If you are only really into D n B this is probably not an album for you just certain tracks.
