    The broad, stuttering beats do fatigue the listening experience eventually, but music this animated and unrelenting demands a very specific ear in a very specific setting.

The bass trends and other dubstep characteristics are worthy of more than a 7/10, but its the lyricism that I feel lets the album down. This album tries so much to be deep, when in reality, there is no requirement for dubstep to BE deep. Songs such as Bite the Hand, Praying for Silence and in particular Evolution Theory itself are songs that try so hard to be deep and meaningful, when dubstep fans don't want anything like that. The album's idea about Evolution Theory is a good one, but not one necessary or expected of a dubstep album. 7/10 Full Review »
