This is an outstanding Album and a fine musical journey! From the more Intelligent vibe on tracks like Aromatherapy and the HUGE Circles, to the Funk of Dirty Harry then all the way over to the Harder darker side with the ground breaking Metropolis and my personal favourite Jaxx, the later being a real beauty and the beast type of tune that IMO, would not have been out of place on Goldie's Timeless album. Having said all this the whole album is also heavily soaked in Jazz influences, little intro's and bridge's between some of the tunes, that are not just gimmick, or Jazz and bass for the sake of it?! ..but are live moments that have real quality and relevance to them. An example is how Metropolis evolve's from mini Jazz prelude which is a pretty awesome piece of music in its own right...then to switch it up into the Metropolis's Intro BOOM! Superb!! Jaxx with it's stunning strings is blended seamlessly into Music in my mind also, nicely done. A lovely flowing album,with a couple of darker, harder points. also worth pointing out on the Vinyl you get the added bonus of the Doc Scott Metropolis remix ;-) Adam F has gone on to big things after this album, and is undoubtedly a massive talent! But sadly I lost interest in his musical direction ...for me this is his finest work to date.

This is a great album marking a bit of a turning point in the world of drum and bass that happened around 1997. Things were switching from that oldskool sound to more of what you hear today. "Metropolis", "Circles", and "Dirty Harry" are definitely the standout tunes that have been countlessly mixed and remixed by every drum and bass producer on the planet. Frankly, my favorite is the beautifully soothing "Aromatherapy". The first record gets into some nice jazz style drum and bass using some real kits and sax. Great old sound for this newer genre. Adam F is definitely one of those geniuses in this scene.
