    The rather aimless and derivative '90s drum'n'bass homage "Hocus Pocus" aside, No More Idols is a consistently impressive and intriguing listen that has the potential to be the drum'n'bass genre's defining studio album.

    It would be interesting to see Chase & Status explore this extra dimension further, but--for now--this is a thrilling case of cum on feel the noize.

    Stronger on revved-up dancehall than coffee-table soul, it's on the collaborations they really come into their own. [Feb 2011, p.125]

    Less easy to grasp is why, if Chase And Status can come up with music that's subtle, clever, original and commercial, they'd chose to spend half their time coming up with music that's only one of those things.

    While brutally impressive, if it's subtlety you're seeking, look elsewhere. [Mar 2011, p.100]

    It's alright and will shift units: boundaries will rest easy however.

    Despite Cee Lo's vocal guidance (Brixton Briefcase), you almost black out from the terribleness before coming to and realising you're too good for this soulless nonsense.

    This album was full of great Drum and Base Tunes. I think the Critics need to up their score! This is a great album! End Credits featuring oneThis album was full of great Drum and Base Tunes. I think the Critics need to up their score! This is a great album! End Credits featuring one of my favourite artists Plan B was definitely a highlight of the album for me. Expand
