Releasing a sophomore album in the current drum and bass world-a scene plagued by formulaic tracks and said to be dying its death-is a risky venture, but if anyone's up to the challenge it's Lincoln Barrett. His music, influenced by multiple genres and unpredictably complex enough to interest even the most jaded d&b head, speaks for itself, be it the super-funked out hotplate of the moment "Racing Green," the grime-infused "Angels and Fly" or MC Dynamite's clever lyrics on the title track. If drum and bass is dead, then Barrett's proved the afterlife was worth waiting for.
