This is possibly one of the greatest drum and bass album of all time. No-one has captured the summer vibe so well since Marky & XRS.

The Album truly flows from track to track and the ragga infusion is truly wonderful. Big things are afoot for the Digital Soundboy label and this is leading the way. Look out for things from Benny Page if you like this Album.

When you hear this album I promise you'll fall in love with it. My wife even loves this album, as do both our children. It really is that accessible. That said, All the hardcore D&B heads I know love it.

In another review Crispy bacon said it was pop D & B. I think he misses the point, or that he is fairly new to the scene. D & B doesn't have to always be grimey and Industrial. And even the darkest D&B DJ's love playing Shy's stuff, from Andy C to Mampi Swift, these tunes have been rinsed out all over the scene. The music is catchy and the lyrics are fun.

Back to the Album. It all kicks off with the track FEELINGS, and if you haven't heard this track then were have you been all summer. The production values are sky high on this album and it has been recieving prime time air time even on Radio 1.

The Album is a vibe, a wonderful experience from beginning to end, and it is one that will surely last the test of time.

This album is sooooooo good. I have been waiting for something like this for ages as I find so much drum and bass these days is very dark and heavy. Diary of a Digital Soundboy is the kind of happy and uplifting drum and bass that puts a real spring in your step and a big cheesy grin on your face! I can't stop swaying ! There is not one track that I don't like at all which is rare for a whole album. If you like your Drum and Bass happy and uplifting without being cheesy then this is the album for you!

A hit. I bought a hit!? WOW! I get so fed up with buying rated CD's to find only one or two decent tracks on. But this is quality and make no mistake! All the tracks on here are excellent and all very original compisitions and by and by quite different from each other. This is a very fine mix of styles from reggae to dancehall, hints of gospel and blues inspired D@B, male ragga vocal to sublime female dance and love song. Pure pop at it's best this - everyone a hit. Amazing. If you like the Freestylers your gonna love this. Me - can't wait for pay day and i'll buy more, and that's a fact.

Ignore the drum and bass snobs. This isn't 'pop' just because it might be popular to more than just drum and bass aficionados.

Instantly grabs your attention from the start. This a classic, with the silky smooth production skills of Shy and T-power in full flight. I loved the first album but this is even better. While Set It Off had some stand out tunes Diary of a Digital Soundboy has no low points.

When this album came out the roots/dub inspired drum and bass sound was at its pinnacle and On the Run, Everyday and Lover's Rock were all highly played examples of this genre.

The rest of the album are all more similar to the first album, jazzy, vibrant and melodic all with a strong vocal element (which could explain the narrow minded 'pop' accusations).

The last tune Delta VIP is my personal favourite, a deeply soulful blues inspired track. It really showcases the versatility of these two drum and bass maestros. Until I heard it on the album I had no idea it was their work. I'd have thought it was more likely to be someone like Calibre or High Contrast.

In conclusion this is excellent album for anyone wishing to get into drum and bass with its upbeat vocally driven, highly musical production. And for drum and bass purists you'll love it too if you haven't already got it in your collection!

Absolutely brilliant, been a big fan of drum n bass for a long time and this album blew me away! Every track is excellent and some are worth the price of the album alone. Highlights include Everyday, Feelings, Unavailable and On The Run. Even if you are not a fan of d'n'b buy this album you won't regret it!!!!

Digital Soundboy is quality. I have listened to drum and bass for a long time now and this is a must buy album.

Lots of reggae influence and the vocals are superb.

If you like SHY FX, buy this.
