This album is wicked thanks to one man - Lemon D. In this head to head he wins by a long way in my opinion. As usual I find Dillinja's material a bit unimaginative and boring but Lemon D comes up with the goods on this one - big time !

"I Can't Take This" and "Get Dirty" are two of my personal favourite D&B tunes of all time. "I Can't Take This" features some brilliant vocals by Lemon D ! I tell ya, this guy can actually sing ! This tune must be played unmixed from the beatless intro otherwise you miss the tension when the track explodes into life. The bass is of course BIG and BAD. The beats are jazzy, very smart, they slip and slide all over the place. If you're a novice to the broken beat then it will not be an easy one to catch. It builds with some intricate touches into a dark, atmospheric monster. I would like to express my empathy with this track too as, yes, I have felt simply in a nutshell..."I Can't Take This!"

"Get Dirty" has one of the most almighty breaks I've ever heard put to vinyl. When played loud this is liable to shake the very foundations of your house! The bassline on this is also wicked! It's always changing, twisting and turning. Lemon D has a great flair for "fuckin" with the track to keep it interesting. A phat phat tune that does serious damage at parties.

" Leopard Skin Guntees" is similar and also brilliant!
I also love "Find A Way". It's another vocal track but with female vocals. It's a happy, skippy, uplifting tune that I always mix into "I Can't Take This" for a ying-yang of emotion.

I think Lemon D is one of the most talented D&B producers around and would like to express my sincere gratitude for making this a bomb of an album. Nice 1 Lemon D !!!
