      Ignore the album cover (which looks like something you’d find in a supermarket bargain bin), because this is a cracking collection of tunes from one of the aces in the Hospital pack. That said, it is a brilliant yet simultaneously erratic album much like the bold and ambitious two-CD titan that was ‘Now More Than Ever’, and as such it doesn’t get top marks from me. Nevertheless let’s talk about its good aspects, because there are plenty of them as you will soon see (or should I say hear) for yourself.

      For me you couldn’t hope to have a better album opener than ‘Warehouse’. Talk about setting the stall out! This neutron bomb of a track is an explosive blend of contemporary d ‘n’ b and old skool rave dynamics; you’ve got the airhorns, the looped, hyperspeed vocal shouts, the piano house keys and that bassline, which is truly seismic. What’s more, all that energy is unleashed over five minutes of airtime and the track never seems to be drained of energy, it really is an absolute powerhouse. Next in line you’ve got ‘Eastern Promise’, another of the key tracks on the CD. It’s difficult to really define what I like about this track but again it has a lot of energy, a good pace to it and a nice groove to keep things moving. ‘Salvation’ plunges into darker territory in terms of sound and has some nice programmed beats that are offset against a drifting female vocal sample that works well with the rest of the track.

      The next three tracks for me see the album lose some momentum however. When I compare Logistics to say, Netsky, I just don’t think he does the more ambient stuff quite so well and it tells here. ‘Murderation’ is neither here or there for me and whilst the bleepy ‘Time Has Come’ has some nice melodies and a downtempo touch, it’s not a track that I’d be going back to time and again. And after that fantastic Terri Pace vocal on ‘Salvation’ kicks in you’re expecting great things as the track quickly builds, but the drum structure and mid-paced characteristics of the track don’t spark it into life for me. I’d have liked this to be a really fast track with a bit more of a rough and ready edge. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad track, I just think it could be a lot better. ‘Jungle Music’ sees Logistics back in the game on a much more basic, stripped-down track. This is d ‘n’ b at its most simple and doing what it says on the tin to great effect, with a relentless barrage of brisk beats and a subterranean groove that will cave your headphones in or lift the tiles off of the club roof depending on where you’re spinning it. And then ‘Transporter’ for me really is a great track, with a soulful vocal and emotional edge on what is at the same time a great club cut. In fact I’d have to say that it’s my favourite from the album, which is perhaps ironic as for me it’s a little bit different to what I have become accustomed to from Logistics.

      It sounds like I’ve been particularly critical of this album, but whilst it does have some great moments there are a few not-so-great tracks on here too. Perhaps I’m somewhat biased in that I prefer the more uplifting and emotive sound that labelmate Netsky has as opposed to Logistics’ darker and heavier trademark, but I think I’ve given a good account of the highlights and would recommend that you give it a chance too.
