I think the comments need an update - it is now 2010 and Blame has more or less crossed over into the realms of cookie-cutter drum and bass, taking the label with him.
The original incarnation of this label (when it was a Good Looking subsidary) is responsible for the release of some of the highest quality atmospheric (or intelligent) drum and bass there has ever been.
Once the split from GLO was past, Blame restarted the label (cat. no. changed to 720NUxxx) and began pushing a more dancefloor orientated sound. The development of this sound was quite subtle till around release NU#8, a single which housed two exceptionally rave-inspired, almost jump-up numbers. By this time, Blame had been collaborating with fellow artists Mampi Swift and The Pedge, partnerships which saw the release of a number of successful dancefloor-orientated releases on Charge, Transfer Recordings and Penny Black.
Initially, early outings were quite impressive. Blame seemed to go back to the early days, firing up the old synths and generally delivering stuff that hit hard but with a retro sci-fi edge (highlights would probably include #9 Future, and #16 Desert Planet - so good it was released again on #25).
The new formula seemed to unleash a new wave of creativity resulting in a large turnover of music, the majority ending up on 720 Degrees, peppered with a number of higher profile releases on Charge, Metalheadz, Moving Shadow (after a ten year gap), and Hospital.
However, after around 2004s 720 Revolutions CD, each new release has been a similar selection of synth-lead rave numbers, each one louder than the one before, with similar beats, bass, style and progression. Agreed, times change, and if it isn't broken then don't fix it - but you can probably guess what a new 720 Degrees record will sound like before you hear it, and that is the saddest part of this whole story.

On occasions when I encounter 720 Degrees record that I haven't listened to yet I get a bit of a thrill of expectation because of so many timeless tunes that have blown me sideways on the first listen, like the Secret Data EP, or the Seba releases, which really have me trying not to giggle too much standing there listening to it in the store. Very much worth checking out anything you find on this label as it has become, for good reason, a bit of a byword for quality.

#7 must have been a damn limited release as I never saw a copy and I used to get everything GLR on test or promo from the company who distributed them at the time.
Blame's restarted 720 since *leaving* glr - http://www.720-degrees.com/
Excellent label, Solitude is an all time favourite track, along with the Deep Blue remix of Odyssey. A label happy to push the boundaries...

720 undoubtedly pioneered new ground in atmospheric drum n bass and the signal to noise ratio of thier backcatalog is probably the lowest for any drum n bass label EVER. All choice tunes...
