a classic must have... some topnotch tracks here... I mean, me personally, DnR has not been an artist that has 100% all songs I like, it's usually 50/50 for me... but still, I shouldn't even have to tell you to buy this. I mean, Ethnicity alone... ridiculous. But you HAVE to get the Clayx Remix of Dance All Night... might be craziest track ever. Tramens and Scorpio had a baby on that one.

Much respect to all of Dom's other albums, but in my opinion Chronology is his best LP by far. Industry was ahead of its time but hasn't lasted the test of time (IMHO), Back for the Future had some amazing tracks (Soundwall, Moulin Rouge) but some filler along with it, Through the Looking Glass was a major letdown except for Deckards Theme, No Strings Attached is my 2nd favorite, and The Big Bang was kinda all over the place in quality. But enough of the negative, as I just wanted to put this album in context, with it being the best of the best of Dom. He never has a bad outing per se, but relative to this album using it as a barometer for quality, tracks like Rhino, Moulin Rouge remix, and Future Life are nearly impossible to surpass. Too bad Dynamo and Adrenelin, released off Moving Shadow right around this time, didn't make the CD version, as I feel they are better than Dance All Night and Freak Seen. I recently did an 80min all-vinyl, all-Dom mix and I only wanted to use 1-2 tracks off each album, but that was next to impossible with these 4 plates at my disposal. By far the best album of 2004, and probably the best Moving Shadow album next to Foul Play's Suspected, EZ Roller's Dimension of Sound, and Omni Trio's Byte Size Life, but definitely the best darker/harder LP of MSX's catalouge. This Moulin Rouge rmx is on my Top 100 DnB tunes of all time list.

End to end, this release does not disappoint. Every track drops a mindflayingly new approach to what Dom + Roland are capable of. A simple must have for those in the know, as well as an easy listen for those interested in intelligent music.

Dom and Roland last release for an album is this marvelous hard jungle stuff : Chronology.
Mixin' this lp is like take a step behind the classical ways of d'n'b, meaning that you need to think diffenrently from the usual way of mixin' d'n'b, even hard'n'b. You can even take the Msx's limited series or the others productions of Moving shadow and don't find the same way of mixin'.
I'm telling that about Ethnicity, the remixed Moulin rouge, Rhino and Future life. I 4 an I is a classical fat rolled beat with bouncing basse upon it, Break out is more like an intro stuff and Late night... well i don't really mix it so far, so i can't tell.
The pearl of this lp is Paradesanite, a smart combination of two old Dom and roland's tracks by Hive. He used piano roll of Parasite and the deep sub-basse of Adrenalin on one single track, and it's perfect !
This album is, for me, the realisation for Dom as a great artist in d'n'b, don't miss it...

Aggressively dark, Dom and Roland’s CHRONOLOGY rolls through rough territory like a Howitzer. The Middle Eastern elements of “Ethnicity” are consumed by a growling bass and fierce percussion, while the remix of “Moulin Rouge” adds a symphonic grandeur that never lets go of its rage. The dystopian sci-fi attitude of “Break Out” is like Dopplereffekt’s LINEAR ACCELERATOR with a bass drum and a sampler. “Future Life,” with its snippet of diva-vocal, seems to be as sunny as they get, while Hive’s merger on “Paradrenasite” clatters from a simple introductory theme into a dense buzz. “Freak Seen” has a much cleaner sound than the other tracks, though it’s no less intense. The diva samples reappear on “Late Night,” at first suggest change of mood before that heavy bass steamrolls everything in its path, and the final track, “Dance All Night,” doesn’t isn’t about dancing as much as it is stomping rhythmically. An album unafraid to revel in its darkness.
