In drawing parallels, I think this album is every bit as good as Pendulum's hold your colour, in fact, if you miss that kind of sound, buy this, its simply awesome! It has many elements of the Pendulum type sound, but also seems to fuse london elektricity type fast soul music, awe inspiring production skills, and finally, it sounds absolutely mindblowing!! Of the 250 or so drum and bass album/compilations i own, this is in the top 3!

Here is why:

Track 1 is very a'la'pendulumesque, but I arguably Matrix and Futurebound can claim plenty of original moments in this track. The track works well! great guitar solos and riffs, bassline, rolling beats and a cinematic polished sound. Nice!

Track 2 (Knite Riderz) is arguably the best track on the album, the original dub plate had no Mc Spyda vocals. Although they are a bit of a let down because I would have liked the music to be completely heard for its instrumental beauty, some consolation can be taken in the fact that at least non-DnB fans might enjoy the track. The real beauty of this track is in the nightrider theme intro which is very heavy! The drop is great and the hook is absolutely superb! and overall production quality is rather good!

Track 3 is pure fast soul music! if you like London elektricity's sound, you will love this one. It is an absolutely superb track!

Track 4 is great rock and drum and bass but would have been better without the vocal in my opinion, but still a good track none the less.

Track 6 - sand storm is deep, soulful, and euphoric. A true soulful gem of a track! Like track 3, great fast soul music, with some cool bongos too!

First and foremost this is an amazing album, it is almost impossible to not to bop in unison to the beats generated from this album. There is not one song on this album which is filler or could be deemed as weak point, if you liked Pendulum's `Hold Your Colour' or `The Nightlife' series by Andy C, then you will love this album, although it tends to be weak to compare one album to another, I feel that if it's the only way to fully give this album the praise that it deserves.

Heavy beats, rhythmic hooks and haunting synthesized vocals really lift this album above a lot of its predecessors, it honestly is something that I've become obsessed about almost to the point of overplay...however after playing this album over 10 times at least it shows no sign of becoming boring...the new wave of Drum and Bass is here...and it's fantastic...

...Amazing, Dark, Breathtaking and downright cool.

If you liked this try albums mentioned also Fabriclive25: High Contrast.

This is a truely classic collection of tunes from Drum and Bass mainstays Matrix & Futureboud. The album has the typical Matrix sound of 'Drowning Guitars' but this adds a new dimension to a genre often critised for boring repetitive sequenced Drum tracks. The album has an almost orginic feel to it, something that wasn't made over night, but something that grew from the decks. From the Sweeping soundscapes of the VIP remix of classic American Beauty to the almost industrial sound of Universal Truth, this album is no lightwieght and isn't suited to the Drum and Bass newbie but to fans of the genre who are seeking something more.

This album has plenty to offer to someone who has felt that they've heard it all. I couldn't recommend it anymore.

Remembering that once, when I was a Brixton mouse, I listened to a lot of pirate Jungle stations - which was like having a wild animal loose in the room - I recently thought I really should own some, but what? So I bought a bundle of stuff off a list (on list-mania) and this is the best of the bunch, by miles.

Considering that Goldie came a respectable (but nonetheless a bus ride away) second...well, you get the message. It's up, in a put-something-crazy-on-coz-it's-friday-and-we're-going-out-dancing kinda way. The beats are irresistable but the melodies are not slaves, which they often are in computer-based tunes. I love Jungle like this, if you don't get it you're in the wrong place dude...
