4 Hero at their best. Atrue R&S classic! In my top 3 D&B albums next to Timeless and Modus Operandi

Tremendous album that really took drum and bass to Detroit. It's warm sounds could be compared to Model 500's Deep Space album.

This is a continuation of their Parallel Universe work (which is the one of the best Jungle/D&B albums of all time)

Nice instrumental tracks to chill to, but they continue to emphasize the heavy bass in the backdrop.
