A nice change from dnb but a mediocre effort. Can tell the guy dies not make a lot of 4/4 music

Just wanted to chime in here and say that "Can't Come Down" is one of my favorite tracks of all time

At the time, I had no idea who Photek was. I just bought this cd just because it was from Astralwerks and in the HOUSE section. LOVED IT. I don't care much for the other drum and bass stuff.

Coming from the amazing Modus Operandi album, I instantly hated this. Then I hated it some more, and then even more. But with each listen something happened. I started enjoying this album, one track at a time. Slowly, it grew on me, and today I consider this not only the best album from Photek, but a huge classic on level with such albums as Leftism and Fat of the Land. I love how Photek goes though so many sub-generes within one album. From the dirty, 'made this in mah bedroom' breakbeats in the start, to the sexy, stripped down Glamourama, the oh-so cheezy but lush Mine to Give, the odd but incredible Can't Come Down, to the darkness of Infinity, Solaris and the dim outtro, this is a real musical statement and a journey I just love to take again and again. Yes, his complex DnB of earlier s more technically impressive, but this album is just brick solid, and one of the few albums from that era I just never grow tired of!

Dissapointing, don't get me wrong i listen to more electronica hip hop and dusted beats than d&b so i have no d&b purist hang ups but this sounds like a ending of contract album or even more a label / artist trying to appeal to a broader base ie america, comparable to leftisms boring corporate baby brother.
No depth, bad cover, owens vocals don't sit well, obvious chords straight forward arrangments linear drum programing in fact is it even photek.
