It's quite amazing how shit the first three tracks are. Ram has become quantity over quality lately but this takes the piss. Track A being the worst, truly awful.

The saving grace is Wickaman & RV's "EV's Dead" played by Goldie on his Fabric Mix. This tune is wicked, proper Headz business. What its doing on this label I have no idea!

I can't be arsed to argue with ya about it as we obviously have different taste in DnB, you're a dark techy monster by the sound of it, and will not even recognise any other sub-genre, and must pan everything else for your own self gratification, whereas I say that it can all have it's platform, not that I have to like it (look at Dubstep FFS!!), but I won't dismiss it out of hand like your all knowing self! I mean most of the 'jump up' genre these days is just a noise to me, horrible bass stabs and no rythmical sense at all, but as you say, the kids love it??
Anyway, the point to this reply is that I DO NOT OWN, and have never even warn a Baseball Cap, especially not a FAKE BURBERRY ONE!! I cannot have my name tarnished with such a slur!! ;)

P.S. Instead of me saying that you talk shit n all, how about we agree to disagree?? ;)

Got to agree. The first 3 tunes sound poorly conceived next to the Wickaman track. One track EP.

If you're only interested in production, then most tunes will be 'Sh*t' in your eyes!
There's too many people out there with such a snobby view on DnB tracks because of how they are produced! F*ck the production, does it get the crowd moving?? I think people forget the Genre is DANCE music, not Production music - the idea is to make the crowd dance and have a good night, not stand there stroking your chin and listening for the change ups and seeing where the production has been tweaked or bassline changed - Thats just DnB trainspotting!!
A lot of the tunes you mention are seminal DnB releases, and to slate them is blasphemy as far as I'm concerned. Taking your approach then Valley of the Shadows is too basic on the production so that must be a poor tune too! You also forget the production techniques have changed a lot since the days of Badass, etc. where you'd have an Atari and Cubase, rather than a Mac and Logic - Big Big difference!!
