The main-stream side of dubstep without a compromise on quality
on 13 December 2010
I loved Skream's first album, but then haven't really followed what he was up to since then. I bought this on a whim kind of expecting it to be more of the same. It is very different, but not in a bad way - and I have been quite interested to here the evolution of his style. It's definitely much much more commercial sounding, and actually quite a lot of the tracks aren't even dubstep at all. However, commercial doesn't mean rubbish - if you're familiar with Apparat it's kind of similar, purely in the sense that it's a very polished, main-stream produced sound but still actually good.
Addition to initial review 6 months later : I just upped this from 4 stars to 5, it is now one of my favourite albums. It's such a grower, completely first class.
