    i thought the sound of the album was a bit more 'lifted' than evol intent but still quality

    This cd is wicked. The diversity of sounds illustrate just how talented evol intent are: There are some insane stompers on there, like '8 bit bitch' and 'era of diversion', proper dirty, slamming tunes- 'dead on arrival' is another banger. There's also some more experimental (but in my opinion equally as good) tunes such as 'im happy your grave is next to mine', which I personally think is a beautiful piece of tunage. 'In the middle of the night' has a wicked vocal on it, and 'the gunpowder plot' is a tune that is akin to a grime/hiphop beat with a twist. The best tune though (i reckon) is mutiny, which features some cool samples. Theres also some pretty cool rapping/mcing on a few of the tracks ('death, lies and video tape', 'odd number')and generally, If you like evol intent you won't be dissapointed: all the grittiness that you come to expect is there, along with much more variety of sound that makes for a wicked album.

    so you like dnb just for the jump up wobble sound?

    i have to say that is pretty narrow minded, that whole sound is so closed off from the rest of scene it makes wanna cry.

    Too much glitch. Only tracks I cared for were Era of Diversion and Middle of the Night.
