    actually to be honest with you man. dnb isn't so much focused on albums. its about indivdual tracks. very few artists make decent albums.

    These stand out for me in that they feel more like albums as opposed to banging tracks one after the other.

    Also :

    D-Bridge - Gemini Principle
    London Elektricity - Billion Dollar Gravy
    Chase & Status - More Than Alot
    Dj Fresh - Escape From Planet Monday
    Breakage - Foundation
    Sabre - A Wandering Journal
    Spectrasoul - Delay No More

    These all can be heard in the album mindset IMO, as in, listening to all the tunes together makes them all individually better

    Excellent I'm gonna go thru all of these that I dont have :)

    Here's a few in my collection not mentioned yet.

    -Logistics, all albums are excellent imo. About 7 of them. Spacejams probably my fav.
    -High Contrast - Confidential
    -Seba - Identity
    -Some of the older Hospital mix compilation albums were ok before they went downhill.
    -Andy C night life mix cd's
    -Rene La Vice- Insidius
    -Scuba Triangulation (Sorry I know it's not dnb more house..It could probably get away with being released on hospital tho)

    but yea u gotta watch out for individual releases i.e subfocus scarecrow / x ray better than anything on any of his albums.
