Like others have said, it is a slight change from some of Breakage's amen outings which were pretty basic yet still fantastic.

This album really shows what he is capable of, some of the tracks have a distinct half time / dub feel.
Lead Me On (from memory) doesn’t even have a snare, just a big lump of a kick drum and mountains of super low bass driving the tune along.

Morning Star is a 2 step roller utilizing the funky worm break, a very nice number.

Losing Track is another highlight, a real hypnotizing tune where 2 of the first beats of the bar are in a half time signature, then the next 2 beats (to make up the whole bar) are in a normal D&B fashion. It makes for a unique bouncy beat but works with the hypnotically deep atmosphere the tune creates.

Ironically my favourite moment comes in the form of the amen work out 'Ruff Dub' featuring Bassbin head honcho 'Rohan'
Hugh bass and a wickedly processed amen makes this tune the perfect vision of 21st Jungle.

Shame the album is only 3x12" release but that seems to be more common in Drum & Bass now days.
The CD version contains more tracks so that is worth getting also.
Breakage sounded unique but also could be described as a Photek / Digital hybrid, which is no bad thing.
