The Darkness and the Light,
This review is from: Rhythm & Stealth (Audio CD)
Normally I am not a fan of Drum and Base but when it is done right it is very good and Leftfield has done it right and then some more. This is the perfect album to sit at home with. It is weird in that it is not really an album you can dance too but if you like to sit around with your friends and enjoy some tunes then this is really a good one because you can chat and then relax and then chat again and relax and the album really does fill that void well. I know lots of people who throw this one on when people are around because it sets a good mood and for all its darkness is actually quite moving in a soul searching thinky sort of way.
The tunes are all mostly drum and bass but they do vary in type. There are a lot of floor thumpers that will vibrate all the way to the neighbors but then there is also ambient works that will just oscillate the bongs.
For those of you expecting Leftfield: Leftism, forget it. Leftfield have simply done something darker and new. This is a must have album and it is really that good! I would also recommend Paul Oakenfold's Great Wall if you like this one because they are very similar except that Great Wall is more Trance orientated.
