Damn, something about Wish U Had Something really makes me want to move. It's just an absolute banger bound to tear up any dance floor.

This is an absolutely brilliant album by the legend that is Jonny L. A fantastic electronic lp mainly consisting of drum & bass with lovely drum patterns (Detroit, Treading), melodies (I let u, 2 of us, Tychonic cycle) and darker tech step territory (Piper, S4, Obedience, Wish u had something).

I have fond memories of picking this up on cd from Our price back in the day and paying a guy £20 for the box set back in 1999. This is a must have album for any dnb fan and contains as far as i'm concerned, the best dnb tune off all time 'Piper' 10/10

Very sought after album by Jonny L still does not sound all that dated despite being released in 1997. Make no mistake about it... the LP shaped drum & bass and should be mentioned in the same breath Ed Rush and Optical's "Wormhole" as far as its impact on the scene. Wish U Had Something, I Let U and Piper are some of the stronger tunes, but there is no fluff on this album. Deep, dark, intelligent, ground breaking... this 5X10" has it all. A must for all lovers of music... not just D&B.

First album of Jonny L on XL recordings, the label of The Prodigy. Before I found this album, the only track I knew by Jonny L was the remix of The Prodigy - One Love.

I have to say that te standard of this album is much higher than that track. This album is full of drum n' bass with a hard edge in most numbers. It is almost like Jonny L is getting rid of a lot of anger, and from what I have heard is that he composed the tracks on this album after he broke up with his girlfriend...

This album sounds like minimal techno in the world of drum 'n bass. Well arranged and with a thumpin' bassline these tracks must all be floor fillers, especially 'Piper', which was a big hit.

This is clean, minimal and pure drum 'n bass, my all time favorite in this genre.
