How can you not expect anything short of a masterpiece when it's coming from the Drum & Bass legend which is Dominic Angus and his Roland machines, literally making a half man/half machine combo, and Through The Looking Glass doesn't disappoint. The old ferocity of beats, deep dark basses and jaw-dropping levels of production are back with a vengeance as we are given a twenty four track two disc album split down the middle. Through The Looking Glass is the fourth album to be released by Dom, and the first to be released via his own label. (The previous three; Industry, Back For The Future & Chronology were released by Moving Shadows) If you already know Dom & Roland then you won't be disappointed by this, but for those who are new to him then I would recommend listening to each disc a few times before making up your mind, perhaps only moving onto the second once you're satisfied you've got your fill of the first as while it is more varied, it may pose a longer listen to those un-associated with the style. Lastly, while many of his other albums I would strongly recommend to friends who aren't even fans of Drum & bass as a genre, I don't think I would say the same for this one. DnB heads preferred please, and let that head wrecking techy funk overcome you! HIGHLIGHTS: U Do Voodoo, Sparta, Get Up, Mr Tuttles Nightmare, Maximus.
