    Hello,
    I've been listening to Drum and Bass for quite a while now. It all started with Pendulum. Their 01/01/08 set in Leeds, Waxon Metropolis is still one of my favorite sets out there. I love 'Hold Your Color' (not so fond of 'In Silico', but I don't really know why) so I searched a bit on the internet and I found out about Jungle Sound Gold. When I finally had the chance to listen to that album, I thought (and still think) it was phenomenal!

    Then something made me learn about DJ Fresh. I searched a bit and I bumped into 'Escape From Planet Monday'. This is the best d&b album I own this day and it still hasn't left my CD tray since.

    Now I'm wondering what album could be the next one in this brilliant list. I'm not searching for compilation albums like 'Jungle Sound Gold' and 'Stadium Drum and Bass', but for albums like 'Hold Your Color' and 'Escape From Planet Monday'. Can somebody recommend anything that has the same kind of vibe to it? And can somebody explain why I love 'Hold Your Color' but I don't like 'In Silico' (except Propane Nightmares, which is also played in that set I talked about).

    Thank you all and I'm very sorry if I couldn't make myself very clear, English is not my main language. If there are spelling mistakes, they weren't made on purpose!

    PS: Thanks ! :D
