Geez, D&B/jungle used to be so cool, but this shit is SO commercial-sounding. I've never been a fan of MCs on drum&bass. And now, MCs on these tracks are SO TIRED and say stupid shit like top-40 booty-bass tracks. Even the music production is real cheesy, what with the air-raid sirens and all. Only interesting tracks are the instrumental ones, as basic dance cuts only - 7,17.

1. airline stewardess spoken intro
2. deep grinding bass D&B w/ swirly fem vocals
3. FCC-"fuck" - Rap D&B w/ some cheesy-ass air-raid siren crap
4. big explosion
5. dub reggae-rap over jungle beats
6. world-y percussive effects & swirly vocals
7. grindin' bass w/ some acid-y tweaks
8. snappy warbled interlude w/ self-hype
9. "ganja-man" reggae-rap vocals over D&B
10. FCC-"shit" - Rap D&B w/ tech-y drones
11. FCC-"fuck" - truly uninspired lame MCing over tribal-y D&B
12. schoolkids interlude
13. pop-ish trip-hop breaks w/ swirly synths & fem R&B vocals
14. fem sex voices and bumpy-happy beats & swirls
15. big epic sound (like electronicized charging horns) - big drum rolls
16. ambient/vocal interlude
17. snappy breakbeats goes into tech-y jungle
18. fast D&B with some very commercial-sounding MCing
