  1. By returning to the drawing board they used to create Ego War, Dinsdale and Franks have created a bigger, better version of their all-inclusive dance-pop/hip-hop.
  2. Audio Bullys don't waste energy giving any of their half-baked whims time to develop into songs.
  3. 60
    Good guilty pleasure music. [Oct 2005, p.76]
  4. It tries to be everything at once, with varying results. [Oct 2005, p.114]
  5. 40
    For every shot that hits the target, however, another flies into the blue. [Sep 2005, p.92]
  6. For a genre that once sounded astonishingly futuristic, it is quite remarkable how tired and old house sounds now.
  7. Generation betrays Audio Bullys' aspirations to say Something Important, undeterred by the absence of either insight or eloquence.

    I agree that they try to do much, too many styles crammed into one album but I found it a thoroughly enjoyable listen. I bought it on the strength of their first album and this didn't disappoint. Collapse
