I have a big collection of the drum n bass arena cds, and have not yet been disappointed, but this was a huge let down. This is my opinion though, as i'm not a huge fan of dubstep, and definitely prefer older drum n bass to the new stuff. The beats and bass just don't sound in tune together, and i think DJ Hazard on cd 1 and the final track on cd 2 has potential, but no. Just no. If you are looking to buy some drum n bass when you prefer things dated from 90's onto 2010 this just wont work.

I think the quality of the D'N'B Arena compilation albums has suffered of late and this is the worst by far, a long way off their excellent 2011 Evolution album. The first disc is a ploddy dirge of sub-standard hits. Tracks 1-7 are brilliant on disc 2, then it's more of the stodgy same. Not enough big hits - no need for big mainstream names (Fresh etc) but should have been some interesting big-hitters here from the d'n'b world. With so much to choose from I think they've let us down and this hardly showcases the best about. The Hospitality mix albums are much better recently.
