    <b> Virus Syndicate </b> - The Work-Related Illness

    This is an easy review. I could end it right now by saying that if you are into rough hip hop and you are dead tired of the Hollywood people (Eminem, Snoop Dog, etc) Virus Syndicate is the altenative you have to check. It would be too easy to say that even my wife, that don't know what the hell the word "grime" means, dug THE WORK RELATED ILLNESS immediately! The fact is that each track has got a different arrangement and if "Slow down" is based on gregorian choruses with distorted drums, "Major list mcs" is almost influenced by electro, "Clockwork" is beatifully influenced by cool jazz and "Throwing in the towel" and "Karma" by middle Eastern melodies. The sound is really pumping, the songs are amazing (see also the humor of "Girls" where the song starts with a host that introduce you to a show about guy / girl relationships), the melody is catchy and the Mcs do their work really well. Do yourself a favor, don't miss this one! It will be out at the end of May...
