Not a bad debut. The beats are great, the production is fantastic and the album flows pretty well. "Exit Planet Dust" shows how much potential the brothers' big beat sound has for the dance scene.

Fav Tracks: One Too Many Mornings, Life Is Sweet, In Dust We Trust, Leave Home, Playground For A Wedgeless Firm, Chico's Groove, Alive Alone

Least Fav Track: Fuck Up Beats
