This review is from: London Zoo (Audio CD)
Dancehall and ragga have never been my music choices at home. Yet, with 'London Zoo', I found myself strangely drawn to the extreme melting pressure of The Bug's sounds. This is a deeply futuristic album drawing on Caribbean heritage - and, as such, featuring some fierce MC-ing.
The lyrical content is intelligent, intelligible and interesting. The bass-lines are deeply sonic and the drums pound proudly across your ears.
These elements mean that 'London Zoo' is my tip for album of 2008.
I don't work for Ninja Tune, but when they release something like this - I wish I did.
