Dirt is the only good track on the album, a big beat track when big beat was at its peek. the rest are wack. if I knew that ahead of time, I would only buy the Dirt single.

I bought this one many years ago, while i visited US a tourist. Mainly it was done because i saw the video for their most popular track "Dirt".
Very varied album, but it also suffers from lack of direction. You get hip-hop instrumentals, drony material, danceable stuff with Rankin Roger on vocals and some other things as well. Not that there's anything bad with the fact that they want to show off their skills, but at least they could concentrate more or less on one or two styles instead of trying to do a bit of anything.
Nonethless, there are a lot of very well-done tracks, especially on the second part of the album - All That Glitters, Rekkit, Rocco, I Spy, Rematerialised and 68 Balcony are ranging from good to excellent. Most others don't make much of an impression on me. Sorry, guys.

This is a pretty good album, with rather a good bit of variety. <b>Dirt</b> was the mainstream US radio hit, featuring some odd live show samples (<i>"It's a free concert from now on</i>..") and generally pretty rockin'. The rest of the album ranges from odd leftfield stuff to dubby tunes, <b>Twist And Crawl</b> being my favorite of the latter sort. The album isn't generally as dark as DIV can get, though some tracks hint at that darkness.

"Rematerialised" is a cover of the scientist's track "Dematerialize" from his 1981 LP Scientist meets the Space Invaders
