2.0 out of 5 stars darsh, 15 May 2007

This review is from: Universal Truth (Audio CD)
Since hearing American Beauty over a year ago I had been eagerly anticipating this release; unfortunately I've been rather disappointed.

This album could be best described as "cross over" in the mould of Pendulum. Infact, knite riderz (genius spelling...) is almost a carbon copy of Tarantula - plagiarism anyone? Elsewhere on the album, Family is actually painful to listen to. It just doesn't work, the vocals make me cringe.

That's not to say this album is all bad, it's fine - it just doesn't push the bounderies of what can be done at all. I liked Sand Storm - the drop is really euphoric, and the VIP rerub of American Beauty is nice, although unnecessary. Strength 2 Strength and the Edge are probably the album highlights for me, but they still don't stand out that much.

It might be that I'm just growing tired of the genre; Andy C and co are destroying the scene banging out formulaic jump up for 6 hours, but when forward thinking artists like Logistics come out with "Now More Than Ever", it really gives you hope that things are going to change. Logistics' album is a masterpiece. Universal Truth is not.

Darsh? you're being harsh, and I can't agree,
and who would be wrong if they could rhyme like me?

Family, American Beauty and Edge are great hits!
And thus to conclude, your review is bull****!!
