My copy of this has weird skips and distortion throughout the beginning of "Damn Son" on CD 1. The CD itself is in excellent condition, and I've cleaned both the CD and my CD player multiple times. My PC rips all other CDs fine, and this album was clearly handled with care by the previous owner. I'm guessing it could just be a one-off issue with my copy, or it's with the pressing plant. Anyone else have this issue?

also album is five stars obv

Isn't the last sound from Squadron the bass sound used by DRS in "Puppeteer"?

I really hate what techstep did the music. However looking back, I really do like this CD set and I now find it quite enjoyable. I just wish techstep could have been a sub style that was played along with the styles that came before it. Instead it became the only sound of jungle... the ONLY sound. That's what I don't like.

Industrial jungle beats, tearing Reese basses and haunting, futuristic soundscapes - if any collection of music signalled the end of the rave dream, it was this.

Cold music for a decaying civilisation!

absolutely essential album for all dnb heads. dark deep rollin bass and masterful drum programming by the masters of techstep themself.

Classic drum and bass. I don't have much more to say then what was allready said.
Great atmospheric music, at its best when mixed. It lade the blueprint for the later dark/tech d'n'b.

The whole album is absolutely flawless. Beautifully crafted, razor sharp production, every tune is light-years ahead of its time.
Sector 3 though, come on, this tune is straight up malicious. Spaced out, minimal... and brutal. Those sonar robotic horns, seriously, absolutely evil. This is drum & bass

"Proton" always reminds me of "Sonar", "Mutant Revisited", "Cutslo"... That time. Who was first?
