    The self-titled album from the pop-oriented dubstep production trio of Skream, Benga, and Artwork features the energetic singles "I Need Air" (featuring Angela Hunte), "Perfect Stranger" (featuring Katy B), and "Getting Nowhere" (featuring John Legend). Ms. Dynamite and Sam Franke are also involved with vocal contributions, as the three producers put some polish -- occasionally to sterile effect -- on an otherwise underground dance subgenre. At its best, the album is bracing, capable of winning over the cynics who are not particularly open-minded about crossover dance music. ~ Andy Kellman

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.72) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he head-blasting instrumentals here are the stuff that makes glassy-eyed bass fiends growl 'siiiiiiick.'"
    Spin (p.73) - "Katy B leads a formidable guest list of vocalists and justifies her rising-star status via the seductive 'Perfect Stranger.'"
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[They] couple dubstep's trademark juddering basslines and paranoid atmospherics to trancey keys...and Pendulum-like anthems."
    Clash (magazine) - "Miss Dynamite's 'Fire' is as kinetic as any floor filler at dubstep's altar, club night FWD>>."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Between the deft pop maneuvers of 'I Need Air' and the eviscerating scree of 'K Dance', MAGNETIC MAN even boasts a few eureka moments."
