I'm not sure i agree with the first reviewer that "you can be special too" was predominantely hip hop orientated - in fact i think thats pretty misleading as i while some of the vocals were undenieably hip hop (of which this album has an about equal amount) the overall tone of that album wasnt really hip hop, it was much more electronic and breakbeat.the only two tracks on special that i would consider hip hop would be earth and pearl shot, everything else seems various flavours of the aformentioned styles. Stuff like hired goons, you are not through, we have the energy, lovers not fighters and even crooked (especially in instrumental form) i think fall into breakbeat/electronica

There is a lot on this album that's instantly recognisable as evil nine from what they set down on "..special too", i was apprehensive to start with about checking it out as a lot of the reviews said it took a few listens to "get it", but i found i got it straight away. It just works really nicely. They've thrown in new idea's and not deviated that far from "...Special's" sound, the beats and bass are instantly recognisable. I would this album was probably more commerercial - but don't let that put you off - in some ways it actually benefits from this, although i get why some people might think otherwise. As a standalone album i think it gels really well, and actually grabs me quicker than special did. As a follow up to a pretty great album, i still think it holds it's own really well, and is well worth checking out. It is more electro than previous work, but it still sounds like evil nine.

I started my Evil Nine experience with their Fabriclive 28 mix, which I thought was excellent, just the right amount of quirkiness and quality beats.
Decided to take a punt on this album, not knowing what it would be like.
Absolutely amazing is the answer. A fantastic album with much to offer. If you've heard Evil Nine in the past and have liked the quality you've heard, then go out on a limb and buy this album, you will not be disappointed.
One bad point though, there isn't enough Evil Nine magic around, shame.

If your like me when it comes to music - likes a varied taste adventure - electro but likes a bit of vocals, some rap thrown in but wants something dark with a beat - consider some Evil Nine.

Evil nines first album you can be special too has been chopped and changed with this 2nd album (minus their fabriclive cd which may I add is worth a look) seemingly even more darker, like the soundtrack to day of the dead but still manages to combine some rap (3 tracks are) heavy electric rock vocals and some blood thirsty tasty beats...Their first song "feed on you" is sweet very much like someone on a one way trip to their doom...queue the zombies! Its a cross between some heavy metal synth pounded by beats and daft punk esk vocals with "they live" track 4 and track 6 "how do we stop the normals" are certainly album highlights. There are at least 8 (or should I say 9!!) decent tracks that will keep you going...I could name other highlights but I'll stop! All and all I think this album is certainly a grower.

Ever since I first span Evil Nine's 2004 offering "You Can Be Special Too" I was hotly anticipating the follow-up. Four long years later and it seems that the predominantly hip-hop orientated debut's memory has been dragged through the proverbial mud. I was instantly disheartened from the first electro chord.
I'm not adverse to a concept album, and being a fan of both the Zombie genre and Evil Nine I expected a hip-hop album with darker undertones than its predecessor. However although the production and even the sleeve artwork by Dan Mumford impress, the album itself falls well short of living up to "You Can Be Special" - of which every track is a straight-up blinder.
This album screams "Difficult Second", and is reminiscent of RJD2s follow-up to Deadringer, where a stunning debut is butchered by a lacklustre, second rate second album.
Even the great El-P's contributing track could barely salvage what is a generally disappointing, almost euro-disco album.
We can only hope that Evil Nine return to their solid hip-hop roots with their next album and salvage what was a solid underground reputation.
If you're having a Halloween party, this is the album for you. For the other 364 days of the year, stick with the first album or the cracking Fabriclive compilation.
