More polished but still full of adrenaline and fire, progression over selling out I'd say.
Blind Faith is an instant classic but Fire In Your Eyes is my early favourite, there's loads of good stuff here.
I love More Than A Lot, now this, hope they continue this high level of quality.

  Con: More Mainstream. Pro: Still Awesome!!

I agree with the reviewer who said that C&S have appealed to the mainstream with this album, but thats not to say theyve completely abandoned their roots - Flashing Lights and Heavy show this. Overall it is a change, but not not a bad one.

Completely disagree with the other review here... don't let it put you off buying this incredible album. Been a fan of Chase and Status for a good while and am thoroughly thrilled wih this album.

The track "Blind Faith" is simply sublime and I could listen to the whole album on repeat for hours. Don't let the other review put you off, this album is definitely worth the money!!

I pre-ordered this from another reputable music dealer and was chuffed to find it on my door mat when I got in today. I've listened to the album all the way through, expecting...well, big things. I've seen Chase & Status live twice now, and bought their previous album, so was hoping a similar sound.

First impressions, for someone who was looking forward to a hard hitting dnb/dubstep album...it's a big disappointment. I kept thinking all the way through that they'd sold out. Cashed in. Appealed to what's popular.

There's a lot of Rock/Indie influences, a la Pendulum - In Silico. There's also a lot of UK Grime with Tinie Tempah (or however you spell it) and Dizzee Rascal featuring. While these kind of acts will no doubt win over fans of those genres as being 'new', 'fresh' and 'turning a new page' for me it's not what I was hoping for. Yeah they are known for UK Grime/Urban stuff but also for their Dnb more prominently.

I get that they want to make money and drum and bass/dubstep albums are not going to pull in big money, but after some of the explosive songs that rocked the dnb dancefloors like 'In Love', 'Hurt you' and 'Take me Away', from my first listen there is simply nothing to compare. No massive drops to blow you away, no racing beats.

That's not to say it's total garbage though, songs like 'Blind Faith','Time' and 'Midnight Caller' are all stand out tracks for me, but they're not DnB by any stretch of the imagination.

I hope it does make them sucessful and they earn a nice wage from this, but I'm going to dig out More Than Alot and remind myself why I liked them in the first place.
