PROBABLY A MIS-STEP TO SOME

ALBUM TITLE                        :        MODESTEP

ARTIST                                   :        LONDON ROAD

GENRE                                    :        DUBSTEP

DATE RELEASED                   :        2015

This record feels like hurriedly done.  The first track seemed to have a very interesting intro but was ruined with what seems to be speaking part uttered by somewhat Russian police officer.  The song progressed as instrumental rock in similar fashion that Pink Floyd’s Another Brick On The Wall was crafted.  However, after listening to the whole record, you will discover that majority of the songs sound dated. For example, “Make You Mine” sounds like 90’s industrial track. “Machine” is like an old Danzing filler track.

If you are not a serious music listener, there is a tendency for you to use the forward button seconds after listening to each track. There is nothing great in many of the tracks and you would be convinced that the style this band tried to capture were already done before by many one hit wonders during the nineties.  Only hardcore EDM and DUBSTEP fans will try to listen this album all over again with the hope that they will discover some hidden gems in this album.

Unfortunately, this record is not a satisfactory album at the least.  I rate this record 1.5 stars out of 50 stars.
