I was a big fan of the 1st CD of Logistics' "Now More Than Ever'. The only problem i found with that album is that it all sounded pretty much the same. There was no real diversity even though it was an excellent album. Now when i found out that Mr Gresham aka Logistics was going to release another longplayer, he had a lot to change but also a lot to live up to.

How did it turn out!?
F*cking Brilliant, thats what. This is an album that grows on you A LOT. Honestly, when i first started hearing tunes from it, i wasnt too impressed. But after buying the CD and pumping tunes like 'Cocoon' and 'Trying Times' on full blast....i began to appreciate what quality this is. Logistics maintains his trademark chilledout-liquid sound, but with soo much diversity this time. Combined with the very very cool cover on the front, this album is one i really do recommend buying.
Personal highlights from the album include the electro-dubstep madness that is cocoon, not an orthodox dnb track, but when you hear this loud, youll realise why Logistics is one of the elite dnb producers at the moment.
Also impressing is the funky-melancholic vibes of 'Trying Times', the EPIC (and i really do mean EPIC) 'Slow Motion' and my personal favourites 96 and 'No Words'.
This is one of the very few albums i do own that actually takes you on your own personal journey through dnb....beautifully produced breaks combined with trademark Hospital Records melodies make this a real standout album for liquid dnb in 2008.

Buy it! Buy it just for 96 and No Words....2 of the best songs you will ever hear, believe me!!

I admit to buying this sight unseen. I am dabbling in a bit of drum n' bass just now and, after buying some Photek stuff, this popped up in my recommendations. I am a sucker for trying new music so went for it.

It's brilliant!

It's heart is a drum n' bass template with some sweet sweeps and synth sounds as well as the always required vocals stolen from a movie you can't quite place.

Unlike a lot of drum n' bass this doesn't sound dated and isn't just for the purist, it has an almost poppy sensibility that makes it listenable, accessible without being just for the beard scratching musos out there.

I really, really like this CD and have been giving it some heavy rotation.

A straight up cracker, heart thumping drums, emotional and layered, deep and inviting.

Sweet

Mr. Logistics had quite a lot to live up to after Now More Than Ever, an album so blinding that it hurts when I don't listen to it. When I first heard Reality Checkpoint, I didn't know what to think of it. Then again, I thought exactly the same when I first heard Now More Than Ever. After a few listens I was not only hooked, but completely in awe at what Logistics has managed to achieve. This album has a production quality that is, in my opinion, at the top of the league of DnB. Couple that with some great bass lines and the result is an album that can't have enough stars put next to it. Logistics has taken it, excuse the cliche, to the next level.

An eclectic mix of sub-genres are artfully pieced together. After listening to Daybreak Sequence, you may just wonder what that was that just hit you. Cocoon will become your new favourite track, but you won't quite know why. No Words and Slow Motion will open you to a world of just *listening* to music, without judgement or thought. This is an album you don't listen to, you experience.

The production is blistering it really is. It is'nt quite as landmarking as the first album 'Now more than ever' but it builds on that vibe and takes it much deeper, which was the right way to go by the sounds of this album. I know it does'nt stand out as much, but second albums are tricky it is said, and Logistics you did a great job of this mate! I'm concerned by what i've heard recently and i'm wondering whether Logistics will be taking the cheesy way next (that concerns me) and if so, then i'll remember Logistics for his first and second albums only! Get this if you liked the debut, but if you are a cheese face then go with Danny Byrd's 'Supersized' LP.

If you liked Now More Than Ever and are a fan of deep D+B you have to buy this. This record imo, surpasses his first with deep, subtle production, deep funk and a real mix of tunes that will ensure this gets played over and over and still sound fresh. Logistics is without a doubt the best producer from the Hospital camp and has taken his sound to a new (deeper) level. He's also tried a few new things like off the beat clicks and the stripped down minimal funk of cocoon. Basically if your into D+B get it, If you like well written intelligent music get it as well. 5 stars.

Everyone else seems to love this album but I just don't get it.

It's very slick, polished, smooth-sounding liquid drum & bass, yes it does ooze quality, I can't deny that.

But my problem with it is that it's not very memorable. Unless you are determined to listen to it over and over then all the tracks do start to blur together a bit, there's not enough diversity or enough character in each track.
