3.0 out of 5 stars The Good, The Bad and The Bass, 12 Feb. 2003
By 
This review is from: Bass Breaks & Beats 2003 (Audio CD)
I know that i myself was anticipating the release of the sequel to probably the greatest Break Beat album that has been released in a long time. So when i noticed the album advertised on the TV, i was straight down the nearest music shop to pick up a copy. However getting home and placing the first disc into the CD player, i was not over impressed. I like garage, but for some reason i just did not get the buzz that came from the original. Yes the tunes were there and definitely too was the bass, but the rhythms were not so much break beats and long pulsing bass lines. But all was saved as i stuck in CD number 2, hoorah something with the Bass, Breaks and Beats that i grew to love in the first album. DJ Hype renewed my trust in this bass grinding compilation. The second CD is far more underground drum and bass than garage, and the bass lines get deeper and darker the further you fall into the rhythms. A joy to the ear! Maybe a bit much on the ear drum, its according if you value your hearing. Overall i have given this compilation a 3, the lagging beats found in the first disc are woken up by amazingly fast break beats in the second. Don't get me wrong though, maybe my ear drums have grown accustomed to d'n'b. EZ's music isn't as bad as i make it sound, just comparing it to Hype's slamming vibes is why i would prefer to rate both separately. For longitivity both DJ's have supplied a superb CD if you are a fan of both genders. Or maybe a couple can split the CD's. If your a drum n bass fan choose CD2 n leave the garage loving overhalf to themselves.
