    Listen to that preview and then go and listen to Tough Guys Don't Dance. Actually made me quite sad.

    Quite a Netsky-y sound to it... Better than Netsky! But not old High Contrast at all, and quite disappointing.

    This sound change started with Scribble in my opinion. So I blame Underworld.

    Well it's highly contrasting... I love the track at 8:43 it sounds smooth, called 238 Days?

    Ok, I guess the title was lying a bit. We've got ourselves a fair deal of agony. Nothing to be excited about sadly.

    Agreeing with everything above. Do not want at all!

    I'm wondering if anyone likes it? Anyone going jump in to say, wow sick. Also, I think it will sell really bad :D. So far all the comments I checked about it elsewhere were the same, it's not a good album.

    Worst thing is, I was sure that there would be like 1 or 2 pretty good tunes on there that I wanted to bag, like on say Camo & Krookeds album(Portal & Anubis). It's just all so average... :/
