Easily their best "transition" album between their old school rave period and their more recent jazzy sound. Perhaps their best LP to date, actually.

This album sounded groundbreaking back in the mid-90s, but 15+ years later it feels a bit dated. The drum programming still sounds top-notch, but the synths have a plasticky fusion-jazz feel to them, which makes them sound a bit cheesy. Nevertheless, with records like this one, 4 Hero (alongside others such as Goldie and T-Power) set the template for what would soon be called "drum & bass". It's a shame if this record is hard to find these days, it should be reissued for its historical worth alone.
