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

Why does the description state the full album but only 1 song per side?

I like quite a few of the songs on this album, such as Smash TV, but the RnB influences in some of the tracks is a real turn off for me. Read morePublished on 12 July 2010 by rudeboy
