5.0 out of 5 stars finally it is here ive waited ages for this, 11 July 2006
This review is from: The Ruff Guide to Genre Terrorism (Audio CD)
in short, its awesome listen to it.

a slightly longer review.

just, wow. i've been into sonic boom six ever since ive heard 'sounds to consume' which is (or rather now they have released their 1st album, was) one of the most promising mini albums/eps i have ever heard, it wasnt a full album but it was excellent and showed alot of promise. this album delivers on the promise, and then some.

the name of the album is very apt.

if you have heard and SB6 you will sort of know their basic stlye which is often (but not always) rapping to what is often punk or ska. what seperates SB6 from anyone else is not only their technical excellence but their unwillingness to be strictly bound to genre.

they sing/rap very well, the nearest band to them that i know of in terms of rap are probably the beastie boys because despite not sounding anything like the beastie boys they rap with the same kind of interplay and exchange of voices. essentially they are more beastie boys/public enemy kind of rap than most of the stuff that gets in the charts,which is a good thing.

at their core is punk (and ska) though with brilliant tight riffs on the heavier songs as well as quite a bit of ska. then you have the reggae, hip-hop, dance, bhangra (track 11 shareena is really cool with these excellent mixed up bhangra samples) and any other genres they want in. but whats perhaps more impressive is that it isnt messy like alot of music where lots of genres mix up against each other but very tight and great.

seriously this is an amazing album. probably the best of the year and i havent seen anything to rival it coming up. they are awesome live as well.

i think it alongside adequate seven's 'here on earth' the publishing of the dead pet's albums (previously only available at gigs)a 3rd capdown album out later in the year bands like king blues, dragster, skindred and quite a few very talented punk and/or ska bands appearing recently shows that the uk scene is getting better after loads of bands splitting up and seemingly not much to look forward to of a year or so ago.
