1. Intro
2. The beast within
3. Creature of the night
4. Red handed (XI rmx)
5. Virtual violence
6. No way out
7. Bass safari
8. Turbulence
9. Last stop
10. Head split

Xerox and Illumination are definately my favorite Hommega act for the past few years. the collaboration between the 2 was notable from the start and simply got better and better through the past 3 years. this new album was something i was waiting for a while... was looking for a similar feel and theme from the last album and got just that.

2. The Beast- starts off with a kick and dirty vocal samples, it is a great dancefloor track sure to bring up dust in the morning time. The electro parts give it a current feel and the guitar is tasteful and in place.
3. Creature of the night - now this is XI at its best for me, at 143 bpm this track doesnt have any anthems. it is all work and no play serious track. i like the atmospheric feel of it and the come to have expected XI sounds. its dirty, straight and technoish - just how i like it.
4. Red handed (XI rmx) - another dancefloor hit, with this one. i like the new arrangement, the final break works great on the floor, the only problem is the main lead is exposed very early in the track and repeats in the end which is a bit predictable.
5. Virtual violence - this track has the same feel as the 'creatures of the night' track in that it doesnt try to be a hit. signature XI leads, sounds and arrangement. the same dirty techno feel, aggressive yet polished. excellent track.
6. No way out - the softer side of XI with this one, at 142 bpm this piece evolves into a dreamy sequence that is quite soft only to be answered by a monster break and tremendous ending. good work.
7. Bass safari - has the standard melodic full on bassline. i like the progression of sounds here. good fm sounds midway through the track. i like the ending to this one as well.
8. Turbulence - was previously released on some Hommega v/a. was a good track back then, still one today.
9. Last stop -is bit too housey for me,i didnt really connect to this one.
10. Head split - at 130 bpm this is an attempt to create some crossover music. this track has an electroish feel, very summery and fun. not exactly my cup of tea, a cool one though.

Conclusion - If you are looking for quality full on, look no further. the album is a direct continuation of the previous XI theme, much more polished and refined. i like this direction they have taken in the past 2 years, very mature even nasty at times, yet not overbearing.
favorites: 2,3!,5!,7!

These guys really are inspirational, a shining example of how modern Full-On should sound.


Amir, I'm still waiting for you to do a Roadrunner remix...           http://soundcloud.com/aeon604

Nice one peeps.. for me by far the best style of fullon at present

Not sure if its as good as their previous album(quite a tall order that) but still oozes power and quality with superb crunching atmospheric sounds(amazing in fact)Need to give it a few more listens and hear it in a party(will do this weekend)

A remix of Xerox & Freeman - Are We Happy would be very nice Listen to the original and you will know what i mean

By the way nice album. Bass Safari and The Beast Within are great tracks.
