    While Magnetic Man demonstrates their work candidly, you haven't heard the works of Skream, Benga, or Artwork until you've seen them live.

    Magnetic Man accomplishes its goal: make pretty for the spotlight.

    This album has failings and successes; it all adds up to a highly commendable record, there's no doubt in that.

    At its best, the album is bracing, capable of winning over the cynics who are not particularly open-minded about crossover dance music.

    This is less a statement about where UK dance music is headed than the sound of three men having the time of their lives, with scant regard for genre purists.

    This schizophrenic album will frustrate purists and sate pop kids.
  7. 40
    The first half's vocal tracks woefully resemble standard-issue chart fodder. There's some better instrumental stuff later on, but, overall, it's ordinary.
