Same, Same, but Different. Still Fantastic.,
This review is from: Brand New Machine (Audio CD)
It's fair to say that Chase and Status' new album 'Brand New Machine' is an evolution of the captivating sound that found the duo their fame. Some of the tracks certainly pay homage to the drum and base routes that captivated C&S's original audience, but the collection of tracks is so much more, infused with rock inspired rifts, neo-grime cuts, garage sound bites and rave tones. It's a clever collaboration of styles that works very well in the main and shows off the guys real talent for dance music.
Whilst Chase and Status' second general release album (No More Idols) cemented their huge fan base with a generous offering of pop chart friendly hits this new album is a little less mainstream. It still offers a number of dance anthems with lashings of melodic content that will please the masses (including general listeners and festival go-ers), but this time it feels like the guys have also concentrated on creating a larger number of more personal, pure and heavier tracks that aim to please longer serving fans.
Without giving away too much, if you're a fan of Chase and Status, cadet or veteran, then go grab this album. You'll almost certainly like it or love it.
