    Call To Mind.

    So much diversity, not a bad track on it. Still sounding fresh today. It's a masterpiece, really. No wonder Metalheadz are taking so long with Re-Call To Mind, it's going to have to be amazing if it's gonna live up to the original.

    Klute - No One's Listening Anymore
    Dbridge - Gemini Principle
    Calibre - Second Sun

    Commix's album deserves a mention, but wasn't a great album, though it had some great tunes.

    Non dnb -

    Jim Yoshii Pile-Up - Homemade Drugs
    Martyn - Great Lengths
    Minus the Bear - Highly Refined Pirates
    Aim - Hinterland
    Jehst - Falling Down
    Madlib (Quas) - Further Adventures of Lord Quas
    Booka Shade - Movements
    Mf Doom - MMm Food
    Chinup Chinup - We Should Have Never Lived Like We Were Skyscrapers
    Death Cab - The Photo Album


    There are actually quite a few more I'd like to put up here, but that's enough for now...

    out of curiosity if great tunes don't make a great album, what are you looking for in it?

    falling down is a quality album though

    The album isn't that coherent, there is some real crap on there, and listening to the album through isn't all that enjoyable an experience.

    Great tunes do not make a good album, especially in dance music.

    In an album, i think it needs to have a good flow and focus... Call to Mind doesn't tick those boxes for me.

    Trust me though, I love all the singles it has given me...

    I disagree with this, I'm glad that it's not all a DNB orientated album, and whilst the singles, Be True, How You Gonna Feel etc are all epic, tunes such as Burn Out really compliment the whole vibe of the album

    fair enough, i see your point definitely.

    For a mini musical trip, even though its before 2000, some of the future sound of london albums are exquisite, lifeforms is just :not_worth

    I am glad its not all dnb as well, no one is denying that... Its just tune like 'burn out' don't sit well with tunes like 'how you gonna feel.' I don't think they compliment each other at all... Chucking 'Change' in there as well, to me its an awful tune.

    How You Gonna Feel also is not an 'epic' tune, not in any way at all...
