I really liked More Than A Lot when it was first released. It provided a unique twist on different aspects of drum and base and dubstep that worked really well. This is the same kind of concept, but this time Chase and Status are revisiting some of the classic dance movements that have taken place over the last 20-30 years or so. Count on me is a brilliant rave track reminiscent of some of the Prodigy's earlier work, but with a more modern twist. On the note of the Prodigy, there is even a sample from Charly on the track Deeper Devotion. I love the Prodigy, so from my point of view it is a definite plus point that this album is clearly influenced by one of my favourite artists.

I also picked up a bit of a DJ Shadow style vibe from some of the tracks, especially with regards to some of the more experimental/hip hop influenced tracks. Cheers to Chase and Status for also dropping a garage track in there as well (Blk & Blu), that really took me back! :)

The reggae vocals on some tracks I am not so keen on, but that is just my own musical preference. There are some tracks on the album I am not completely sold on, but that is usually the case with most albums.

I think if you are around 30 or over, you will probably appreciate this more than if you are much younger or aren't familiar with some of the older influenced tracks. Although saying that, this album could introduce you to a whole new range of older dance music you never even knew existed.

Not a perfect album, but there are some really decent tracks on there that make it well worth the money in my opinion. If you want more of More Than A Lot, then this probably isn't the album for you. If you have a more varied taste when it comes to dance music, then just skip forward to track 3 and enjoy the album!

This is a great album. While there are a few low points, in the form of Deeper Devotion, Gun Metal Grey and surprisingly the second single Count On Me, so if you like that single then the rest of the album is incredible. The duo have managed to mix all different forms of music on this album, from the Drum & Bass they were first known for on Breathing, to rap on Machine Gun and Gangster Boogie. Key tracks on the album are International, with clear trap influences, Heaven Knows, with it's strong vocal from Elli Ingram, What Is Right, the collaboration with legend Nile Rodgers, and Alive. Absolutely brilliant

This album is good, but with so many different styles on it, it sounds more like a compilation album rather than the work of a single artist. I'm not sure if this is because C & S were trying to show they can "do" dance music, or if it is a by product of the number of collaborations (11 over the 14 tracks). There are a couple of old skool bangers in Count On Me & Deeper Devotion, some garage in Blak & Blu, some dubstep in Alive, and almost everything in between! Chase & Status fans will undoubtedly love it, but for the casual listener, I'd suggest just downloading individual tracks rather than shelling out for the entire album.

I see so much hate from people for this album, but really dont see what is to hate, just because they havent done what there other albums where... which doesnt make sense either... because there previous two albums were rather different.

This Album shows a whole new level in what Chase & Status can do and what THEY can achieve, SO many great tracks on this album that i just cannot stop listening

all this hate that they are giving will it ever be enough ;)

only song i never liked was 'heaven knows' yet thats grown on me and has a real nice sound

I really like this album, and am proud to own the CD along with the other 2 albums.

SO BEFORE YOU LISTEN TO THE HATES. LISTEN TO THE ALBUM AND LET IT EFFECT YOU IN ITS OWN WAY

ive become found. peace

It's not as good as you'd expect it to be. The well known Chase and Status songs are the one hit wonders on this LP.

Big fan of chase and status and this album does not disappoint.

Classics like COUNT ON YOU and now there new follow up Black & Blue.

They bring the vibe with gritty and decent sounds and melodies.

As good as there other albums.

This product is called Chase and status brand new machine, however what arrived was far from the full album (it does state the songs on it in the product description) however I am extremely disappointed this cost £15 for 4 adequate songs. Moreover te product was damaged in the post (records work fine) and the vinyl was covered in dust like it was far from new.

I really only bought this CD for one track-Count on Me-I loved the Old Skool vibe of that track when I first heard that. Really enjoyed the rest of the album too. It really is a bonus when you buy an album for one song and really enjoy the rest of the album too.
