I like: realistic sounding snares, jazzy backbeats, upbeat tempos, distortion, witty vocal samples, dark melodies, hip-hop, drum-n-bass, hardcore, industrial, trip hop, and electronica. I hate: happy music, poppy hooks, country & western, stupid lyrics, love songs, R&B, Kid Rock, and "Dubya". I make beats and write ryhmes, engineer tracks, work with other engineers, program beats with a band, perform with all these beats regularly, etc. So, my point is that Hive is no joke. He is not to be underestimated by any means. He's a dangerous phsycopathic drum murderer. I kid you not when I say that he will split your mortal corpse in two with split second beat changes while slowly injecting you with the ghost serum. Do not tamper with this if your are planning on taking a danty waltz through the feilds of PLUR-ness. This is not happy music. You could play this at a rap party, a rock party, a sick rave, a goth party, or even over a violent game of shuffle board. However, I want to warn you: Don't expect the rock guitars of Ultrasonic Sound to resurface anywhere in this album because that was just one idea he had. You can however expect hardcore drum-n-bass with gritty break beats mixed in, and a constant reoccurance of theme-oriented vocal samples (many from Flash Gordan). Bottom line: putting down the paxil + picking up Devious Methods = you getting a life!!!!!!!!!!
