Well, in conclusion:
Don't buy this if you don't like drum & bass.
Do buy it if you like Amon's faster stuff, D&B, great mixing or if you are just looking at expanding your musical horizons.
So in conclusion, this album really is great;
If you are a fan of Ninja Tunes but fancy something a little different(trust them, they know what they are doing).
If you are a fan of drum and bass, but fancy something a little less mainstream.
If your not a fan of either but fancy something a little challenging that will change your view of a whole genre.
The only problems I have with this album is the fact that the critics of a certain magazine (which will remain unnamed) have obviously never taken it out of it's cardboard sleeve, also, after listening to this, you may be disappointed by other drum and bass cds out there.
Recorded live you get to hear everything on this mix, whoops of crowd appreciation, little slips here and there, but (thankfully) recorded so well that you don't lose any definition with the sound as is so easy and vital not to do with our modern beats and breaks. The live mix style instantly gives this mix a sense of excitement as Amon begins weaving together dark, clanking, industrial hip hop beats (which wouldn't sound drastically out of place on something like Music For The Jilted Generation). Booming, cavenous sounds which occasionally give way to sinister ambient soundtracky breakdowns. Its when the mix shifts up a gear into very Moving Shadow-eqsue drum and bass, that things get really special. The electronic drum and bass weaves in and out of Amon's own almost fast jazz breaks.
Its such an interesting mix in the Solid Steel series and will stand out for breaking the norm of what has come so far. Its the mix I find closest in spirit in the entire series to that which all are judged against, Coldcut's 70 Minutes of Madness for Journeys By DJs. Snap this up but ensure that the JDJ mix is living in your collection as soon as possible if it is not already.
