    [It delivers] 55 minutes of pit-in-your-gut tension from two of bass music's foremost masterminds.
  3. Pinch & Shackleton stands as both artist's most accessible and perhaps best work.

Only negative is the common occurrence for every song to start out as one track, and then transition into a completely separate track. While this is done with perfect execution and genius, it occurs in almost every track and sort of feels like the track is going on a tangent. But only if your really paying attention.
