Review

First you had Drum 'n' Bass, and somethings in that genre were kind of interesting (i.e. Goldie). Then, as always, you had to have the more sedate populist version of it, and in the UK this was manifested in UK Garage.

Thankfully this was a short phenomenon, still, while people got hip to the fact that it was shit, albums like this were produced. If we lived in a fair world this would mean that they would by now be completely forgotten.

Unfortunately for me, I had to listen to this crap. Hopefully I can spare some of you by saying: Don't listen to it. You'll never get your time back. A couple of not terrible songs are not enough to endure it.

Man, that's the worst overview of drum & bass I've ever heard.
