    Pretty poor selection throughout IMO, a few sick tunes padded out with tonnes of filler :(

    What the fuck are you on guys? Except for the first disc which is more miss than hit it's actually a cool compilation.

    Normally DnB arena go way beyond cool compilations tho, I guess it doesn't suck but I just expected more from a 3cd selection

    But now every time I look at the track listing I notice another tune I like, maybe I subconsciously wrote it off after seeing the first cd and first track of cd 2!

    I get that it's D&BA and they have kind of have a value to the scene but why on earth are you even considering posting this?

    Cause its DNB? The point of the forum?

    Also it has a guy who adds frequently to the Production Forum regularly in Ben Kama. If that is not worth a post I do not know what is.

    You sir, Music snob!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but you haven't posted any positive things about these compilations the last few times so why do you bother posting things you don't like? (apart from Ben Kama sorry I don't read the production forum)
    There's lots of releases that don't get posted and people are liking still we get every d&ba compilation on here and there's, mostly, a massive spam of disappointing feedback. I don't get it... If I don't like something, I'm certainly not going to open a thread about it?

    Probably should start posting some, imo, good releases...

    I for one am quite happy he posted this album, havent listened yet, but, Disc 3 has got my interest well and truly piqued! Its a who's who of the DnB scene. Calyx & Teebee, Serum, Saxxon, SPY, BTK, Audio, Rockwell, Optiv & BTK, Mindscape, Break & Mikal ...... Probably all shit eh
