Customer Reviews

Substance D abuse is firmly discouraged

I'm reviewing the disc release because the iTunes version is pricey and seems to be causing track transition issues. Now that the requisite play on the name and the foreword is out of the way, I'll say that compared to other Dieselboy works, this is a bit tame. Some tracks will act like advertised and get your heart rate going, like Trauma/Cell, but much of this feels too uninspired and subdued, with generic drum beats and equally generic vocals and effects that uncomfortably remind me of the cheap-feeling style of The 6ixth Session. It's not terrible and maintains consistency of its muted aggression, but there's nothing here that really breaks out of the Dieselboy formula. projectHUMAN still remains my favorite mix of his. Only for hardcore Dieselboy fans, or just those desperate for "another dnb mix."

Dull and Repetitive- lacks "oomph"

Almost every song is the same as the others. The drum beats are flat and papery; they seem to follow the paradigm of "the more the better," but this just makes the tracks noisy without any emotional energy. Top these weak beats off with an overly-distorted bass lines and finish the whole thing with a lack of structure and you got a good idea of the whole album. Buy "Project Human" or "The Dungeonmaster's Guide," instead. If you do get "Substance D," get it for free or from a cheap Russian site; it is not worth 16 bucks.

$25? a bit much, BUT...

PAY ATTENTION. This is an album full of serious drum & bass business. These tracks will make you look at your speakers and say "Oh s$#&*^!" because they come HARD. Top names making top tunes and some hot remixes. I don't know if it's a $25 buy, though. Double album or not, that's still a bit pricey. Especially when the "2nd cd" is just some of the 1st tracks all mixed. Why would we wanna buy the "album" and get 2 copies of the same songs, same mixes? Itunes would of been smarter to market it/release the 2nd "disc" as a single track full mix and make that "album only". Thanks for reading. Keep the vibe alive.
