I'm into many different kinds of music; my electronic and hip hop stuff is in here, but as I don't have a whole lot of free time my rock and jazz stuff is only trickling in slowly.

I like this album better than their last. It's still much more rock-focused than their older work, but I feel that the songwriting here is stronger than it was on Get Ready. It's still not quite at the level of some of their classics like Brotherhood ... See full review

"Stop Making Sense" is one of my favorite films, and this special edition of the album is one of my all-time favorite records. Every time I listen to it I am amazed. Definitely worth getting for several songs that are not included in the original ... See full review

In my opinion, this album isn't as good as Episode II, though it still has some good stuff on it. The production is slicker, but I enjoyed the more raw sound of the first album. Episode II seemed to have a bigger emphasis on the percussion, wheras 3.0 ... See full review

I got this because I needed the early Earthbeat stuff (Future Sound of London, Yage, AST, Mental Cube, etc.) for a radio show I was doing. It's got some pretty good stuff on it, as well as some that's not so great. I'm glad I have a lot of these ... See full review

When I first heard this, I was a little disappointed. Mostly with the lyrics, which don't even approach the strange, ambiguous deepness of their earlier albums but are rather simplistic and sometimes even silly. And "Rock the Shack" is just terrible. ... See full review

This release was a big surprise to most Future Sound of London fans, as it really sounds nothing like their previous material, and is much more of a psychedelic rock album (as other people have pointed out, comparing it to David Bowie or Pink Floyd). ... See full review

"Furious Angels" and "Clubbed To Death" are simply amazing tracks. As an added bonus, the rest of the tracks are good also, but can sound a little repetitive. Having never heard any of his tracks besides the aforementioned, I was pleasantly surprised. ... See full review

I have to agree with DarkSouljah... I think this album is much better than Tweekend. Granted, I haven't listened to Tweekend in detail, but the impression I got was that the tracks were becoming more rock-oriented and less imaginative than the ones on ... See full review

I like this album. It's not perfect, but pretty good. Many of the tracks have too much of a reliance on huge four-four thump beats, which gets annoying after a while; 3 Sheets To the Wind is the worst offender. But the tracks that break away from ... See full review
