Not terrible, but by no means a good snapshot of dubstep
on 1 July 2011
When a compilation like this comes out, I expect it to be a snapshot of up and coming tunes from the finest elements of the genre. Some of the tunes on this album are half a decade old, which doesn't detract from their quality, it is annoying to buy a CD when you already own half of the tunes.
Secondly, this is not a snapshot of the best dubstep tunes, but (and keeping in mind that this is presented by the Ministry of Sound) rather the more commercial side of the genre. Don't get me wrong, there are some cracking tunes on here, but hardcore dubstep fans needn't apply.
