Album Review: Modestep - Evolution Theory

Modestep - Evolution Theory

Style: Kill The Noise-ish
Pros: Energetic, nice-clashing of different genres and instruments
Cons: Just a few songs I'm not that onboard with.
Overview: Upon first listen, you can tell it's from the UK (not that it matters, but that was my first thought when listening to this album).  Anyways, as this Dubstep, Brostep, or whatever-step is reaching it's post peak, Evolution Theory, provides a further listening extension into that genre. I'm sure you've heard their songs, since they've been releasing them over the past couple of years.  What I enjoyed here, is the use of Dubstep and Drum and Bass, and even a rock element, into a single song.  Though, a couple of songs, they just pitch shift it to meld the two different bpm's, so it sounds a bit like a live mix, but it's still cool (Now that I think about it, it'll probably be good to have for DJing between genres). Cutting to the chase, if you like Kill the Noise and a dash of Chase & Status, there's a good chance you'll like this album.
