You have to encourage British drum and bass producers who aren't afraid to mix it up a little and borrow influences from elsewhere; this is what Chase and Status have done whilst still retaining the harsher and darker side of drum and bass. The record actually starts of on a melodic uplifting vibe with 'Can't Get Enough' which has a pleasant enough set of riff and vocals. However, there's a slight dip in quality with the next track 'Music Club'; the glockenspiel-influenced hook that runs through the track threatens to sound annoying although the fusty old man vocal samples go beyond threatening - it's a concept track that I just can't get on board with. The duo take a breather from breakbeat and plunge head on into UK hip-hop with the help of Kano; and to be fair to them, it's a pretty good effort with memorable chorus samples and Kano's lyrics are entertaining enough.

It's back to more drum and bass beats and 'Street Life' is laced with impressive melancholic and intelligent beats. The lyrics flirt with ghetto life and turf war and you kinda hope Chase and Status are doing this for parody reasons a la Freestylers rather than covering a theme in ernest that has been done to death.

Things get heavier and even better with Smash TV; Axl Rose samples sit splendidly with speaker-ripping jungle beats which are slowed down to cause maximum impact and the same darkness appears on 'Pieces' although that track is punctured with melodic vocals; the result is an awesome dichotomous unsettling and sultry treat.

The duo really show their musical talents on 'Eastern Jam' where Indian female vocal samples are spliced with slow burning catchy hip-hop beats.

I ordered the vinyl thinking it would be the full record but came with 4 songs in which didnt even work, due to poor pressing on the record i know the album is great just i don't recommend you buy the vinyl if you want the full working version of the album .

Amazon did not state anywhere in the description that it was not a full album
Amazon also did not state the track listing

First heard Chase & Status in Tignes in the mountains on an Oxford/Cambridge ski trip, Pendulum and Chase & Status played at our massive final night party. I loved C&S so much (maybe even more so than Pendulum?) that I bought their album as soon as I got home. It was good as I first listened to it, but it grew on me even more - it's great.

Got me interested in dubstep too, as some tracks contain dubstep elements. In short, if you like Pendulum or even grimy dubstep, buy this now.

Love the Album (When you get the whole album!!)
I wish I had checked the other review for this on the Vinyl format because even though it says the album is "More Than A Lot" and shows the full track listing, it only has FOUR tracks: Streetlife, Music Club, Smash TV and Is It Worth It.
VERY Misleading and a real disappointment. I already own the album on CD but was really looking forward to getting the Vinyl. Amazon needs to do more about showing the reviews for the correct format, not just the album itself.

A Real Shame.

2008 has been a good year for Drum and Bass. We've seen London Elektricity's "Syncopated City", Danny Byrd's highly acclaimed debut album, "Supersized" and now there's this to put the icing on the cake.

Don't expect generic basslines that you might have found in C&S' earlier works, In this album you can see that they've grown up a bit are now widening the genre with sounds no one's heard before.

Can't Get Enough opens the album spectacularly and it couldn't have a more suitable name, it's too short. 9/10

Music Club contains lots of cultural samples to prove Chase and Status' new flavours. 9/10

The next track, "Against all Odds feat Kano" is a fast paced rap track which comes as a nice surprise for a dnb album. 9/10

Streetlife is the next track to be delivered in More than Alot. Chilled beats, smooth vocals and a nice bass hold this great track together. 9/10

Lets face it, if you've been listening to Drum and Bass recently, I find it hard to believe that you haven't heard the next track, "Smash TV". I don't really need to explain how big this tune is. 10/10

Pieces is probably my favourite my favourite track from More than Alot. It starts with nice chilled sounds accompanied by singing and then changes completely into a jump up heavy bassline dnb track. 10/10

Eastern Jam is a great dubstep track and if you're into that kinda thing, you're probably gonna love it. If, like me, you're not exactly a fan of dubstep, you'll probably still like this cos this isn't any regular generic dubstep. 7/10 (but if i was a fan of dubstep this'd probably be a 10)

Foundation is a short 50 seconds "Skit" so there's not really any need for me to give this a rating.

After listening to this album for the umpteenth time, I've come to realise that its more than just a grower, its the musical equivalent of out-of-control japanese knotweed: it keeps on growing.

I wouldn't like to pigeon-hole it in to one particular genre, though clearly the currents of Drum 'n' Bass and Dubstep flow deep, and fans of either will be delighted by what's on offer.

OK so most of the album is Drum 'n' Bass. But to say so risks understating the obvious imagination thats gone into each of the tracks. Also the line-up on offer makes this album worth a look in its own right. Kano's rhymes are tight on the uptempo/hip-hop flavoured 'Against all Odds'. Plan B spits venomous lyrics and delivers enticing vocals (presumably the vocals are also his?), on what could be the album's standout track; 'Pieces'.

For fans of Drum 'n' Bass one or two tracks might be overly familiar, having been around a while (you'll know which these are). 'Music Club' is a fairly cheeky number. However having heard 'Music Club' on C&S's BBC Radio1 Essential Mix, (possibly the best EM of 2008), for some reason I thought it was either purely instrumental or incorporated the brooding lyrics of the following track on the Mix by Concept 2, neither of which is the case. Personally 'Music Club' was a bit of a let down (only because I got my wires crossed though!).

The final track leaves you wanting more; an astonishing ripping bassline balanced magically against subtle vocals that laments a failing relationship. I don't want to say too much more about the individual tracks but the bass on 'Smash TV' is earthquake inducing...

Overall, the sound and feel of the album is sharp and crisp and the production is tight throughout.

This album is a banger. Don't take my word for it though check it out for yourself.
