years ago I bought this one due to panacea recomanded it as the best statements to breakcore, that he could imagine.
In my opinion this has not much in common with breakcore at all, but with finest ragga dancehall stuff.
I like this even more than the london zoo work, which is also a conviencing piece of music, but pressure kicks ass a bit more. There are chilling grooves as well as noisy tunes on it, which are bit more rythm driven as the tracks on london zoo.

Dancehall never sounded so rough as it does with The Bug's _Pressure_, a hyper-aggressive burst of vocals and beats. Even if "Politicans and Paedophiles" starts out rather simply, with Daddy Freddy’s layered vocals and a drumbeat, the percussion accumulates gradually throughout until it becomes a wall of rhythm. Paul St. Hilare offers a slightly more sedate vision for "Live and Learn" and "Some Days," though the gruffness of the music still persists. Daddy Freddy reappears for "Run the Place Red," where his voice takes on a ominous growl, even without the benefit of The Bug’s rumbling production. "Night Steppa"” has a more of a 4/4 beat to it, though this in no way makes it less exciting; indeed, the quasi-political lyrics deliver more of a punch. And let’s just say that the lyrics of "Fuck Y~self" are self-explanatory. But for the perfect blend of scary beats and menacing lyrics, nothing can quite top “Killer,” a menacing track complete with freakish yelps and screams. Tough, but fair.

This is an amazing release featuring experimental dancehall production that varies from hard to insanely aggressive. The vocals follow the same variation, from spoken word to singing to, for the bulk of the album (and my favorite tracks) hard-as-nails ragga MCing. Tracks such as "Killer" and "Executor," well, hell, they're all outstanding. Fans of dub and jungle will likely enjoy this fare. I play it for my friends, though, and they are scared.
