If it wasn't for his debut "Infinity + Infinity", perhaps the best d'n'b-album ever, this release wouldn't be as forgotten as it is now. If perhaps Blu Mar Ten or Future Engineers or anyone not as famous as Big Bud from the Good Lookin Crew would have done this album, this would also be consider as one of the essential albums of the d'n'b-scene.
This album has got everything. From the chilled grooves of "Return of the spiritman" and "Sascha's song" to the wild and hypnotic d'n'b rhythms of "Bluegrass" and "Pure". It is even more complete than "Infinity + Infinity", but still "I + I" is the most famous album.

Oh well, buy this album without hesitation! You who like your music hypnotic will love it!

The first disc of Big Bud’s second album, <I>Late Night Blues</I> picks up where <I>Infinity + Infinity</I> leaves off: in downtempo-land. “On the Six” picks up a 6/8 tempo, but retains the jazziness, while “Baby” reintroduces some of the atmospherics that marked Big Bud’s earlier work. While “Mombassa” adds some African chanting, “Sacha’s Song” goes for straight-up deep house. “Soulfood” finally gets back to the drum ‘n’ bass we’ve been waiting for, and it’s worth the wait for the jazzy juiciness. “Persian Blues” doesn’t sound very Persian, but it does have some nice breaks. The second disc is more of the atmospheric drum ‘n’ bass for which Big Bud is known, but given the development of his sound that was demonstrated on the first disc, it’s not quite as exciting as it should be. It’s still cracking drum ‘n’ bass, though, so don’t miss out.
