Albums like this devalue your life to the extent that you cease to have one: making you a slave.
The album is just a feast of sound: little sound effects are never allowed to dominate, but seep seamlessly into each song, adding yet more to the overall tapestry.
“High Society” isn’t lamely greater than the sum of its parts: it is the sum of its parts.

 Crankinhaus Records honcho Big Al at the I-94 Bar
With a release schedule that includes a full-length High Society album, a long-player from Nik Rieth's awesomely good Thermals, the debut of the stunningly loud 300 st clare and an album by the New Christs, you can bet people are going to start paying attention.
High Society are three young guys who make one heck of a sweet racket.
It was good we got this together as I sent a copy off to Jami at Mans Ruin who I’d been speaking to on and off for quite a while about various things and they liked it (and are big RB and NC fans as well) which is cool.

 RA: Resident Advisor - High Contrast takes a stab at High Society - Feature / Interview   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Keeping to the tradition of Hospital Records, High Society delivers a funky and uplifting sound filled with soulful vocals, lush strings, infectious rhythms and choice vocalists including Reprazent's MC Dynamite, regular FreQ Nasty collaborator Spoonface and upcoming grime MC Nolay.
With the first album, I was working on whatever and fitted it to suit an album.
I guess there is - the most obvious is that the first album is an introduction to who I am, whereas this is one is more "now I'm an established artist, welcome to the world of high society".

 Review: Enon - High Society - Film Junk
The album’s single, “Carbonation”, is the culmination of mixing both synth pop and rock styles, and it finds Schmersal and Yasuda sharing vocal duties over fuzzy guitars and synthesized pops and crackles.
It should, because High Society is one of the most innovative yet listenable albums to come out this year.
While High Society may be more accessible than Believo, it is in no way less satisfying to listen to.

 High Society, MP3 Album Music Download at eMusic
Enon's second album, High Society, is something of a homecoming for the band.
In the first four songs alone, High Society spans the driving, garagey rock of "Old Dominion," the weirdly brooding "Count Sheep," "In This City"'s sleek synth pop, and the jangly cuteness of "Window Display," which sounds like a cross between Preston School of Industry and Magnetic Fields.
Equally impressive, though, is the album's title track, which gives a playful nod in the direction of the Left Banke and the Kinks at their chamber-poppiest.

 Hospital Records   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The 2nd album from HIGH CONTRAST is perhaps the most highly-anticipated d&b artist release this year.
Following the runaway succes of his debut set TRUE COLOURS in 2002, High Contrast has gone on to establish himself as one of the leading A-list producer/djs on the international scene.
HIGH SOCIETY once again raises the quality threshold in drum & bass : from dancefloor smashers like RACING GREEN, TUTTI FRUTTI and THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY to genre-bending nuggets like ONLY TWO CAN PLAY with dancehall-soulboy Spoonface, and the future-classic ANGELS AND FLY featuring up & coming grime star vocalist Nolay.

After touring America for the past two years, "High Society" is one of the most anticipated releases of 2004.
The album begins with "Lovesick." This is definetly going to be a favorite track for many listeners and it's simply an amazing opener.
We recommend you pick this album out and if you've lost a little faith in drum and bass over the last two years or so, looking for that soul and "jazzy, bouncy jungle" style of the mid to late 90's, you are going to absolutely fall in love with "High Society".

 RA: Resident Advisor - High Contrast - High Society - CD Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
High Society is the follow up to High Contrast's critically acclaimed debut album, True Colours which was released in 2002.
High Contrast brings out the grimey beats on Angels and Fly dropping a dirty bassline, tough syncopated 2-step beats and an electro hook which provide the perfect setting for Nolay to lay down her gritty street bred flows.
Fans of Hospital Records artists and releases will definitely get into this album and it would probably be perfect for introducing people to the sound - easy, accessible tunes featuring melodies and rhythms that don't sound too poppy or commercial, yet not hard enough to scare newbies away.

 BBC - Dance Review - High Contrast, High Society
A wry smile played across his mouth as he helped fellow rebels of nonchalance (Marcus Intalex, Fabio, DJ Marky, Calibre, London Elektricity, 4 Hero, LTJ Bukem) deftly weave rays of sunshine into a coruscating musical rainbow that would act as a beacon for the soul-loving masses - and perhaps woo the chicks back too.
By the time High Contrast's debut LP (True Colours) was ready in 2002, the scene had bloomed into a multitude of fabulous flavas and his mellifluous mix of eclectic beats was joyously received.
Yet to call it a conventional dandb album would be to do High Society an injustice.

Their second album, High Society, is as redolent of smoke as the stoners' van in the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
I got into KMK around 2004 but picked up the first 2 records first, then got High Society and this was the album that finally clicked with me. The first 2 records are great on their own terms but I really started to dig the sound they had goin on High Society.
My only thing to say is that i hope KmK makes an album that will put back saint dog, Cause if they do, for sure it will be like a cult classic cd right next to "Royal Highness", "High Society", And Hidden Stash 2.

 * Dusted Reviews - Enon *
So, as I’m writing this, the new Enon album is the subject of a degree of buzz in the underground rock scene.
The strength of implementation for High Society seems to lie in John Schmersal’s ability to constantly push the limits of genre, never looking back, producing hit after hit by constantly experimenting with the form of the classic rock-and-roll song.
Better Now!” and egoism aside, High Society is in fact a big step up for Schmersal and his ever-evolving band.

 Enon - High Society - Review - Stylus Magazine
In order to properly rock an air-guitar, -bass, -keyboard or -drumkit, two conditions need be satisfied: one, the chosen instrument must play a prominent role in the mix; and two, the riff has gotta rock fiercely.
Perhaps the most immediately apparent quality of High Society is the abundance of such riffs, coming in such varieties as guitar ("Pleasure and Privilege"), bass ("Natural Disasters"), drums ("In This City"), and Moog ("Leave it to Rust").
It may be hard for Enon initiates to believe that High Society finds the band narrowing their musical focus from their debut, which showcased a different style on every song.

 Enon - High Society (Touch And Go) - Drawer B Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Enon’s second album, High Society, thrives on such unexpected and off-putting juxtapositions.
High Society expands upon the hurried schizophrenia of Schmersal’s previous band, Brainiac, elevating songwriting to the same level of experimental deconstruction to both the detriment and advancement of the band’s core sound.
There are just a few too many missteps on High Society to heap blind praise on it, but it’s clear that Enon is headed in the right direction.

'high contrast' is clearly trying to mess around with the form, add his own flavour to the proceedings, and generally do something new with DnB.
Most D&B albums end up gathering dust in my sitting-room very quickly, so every time I listen to one prior to buying it I try to imagine myself playing it incessantly, but that never happens, and true to form this album is already dust gathering.
Every D&B album has to have a stinker or two - ' Angels and Fly' is a horrendously crap female rap tune scrambling for street-cred.

 High Society
Comprising former Humble Gods frontman Brad Daddy X, rappers Saint Vicious and D-Loc, DJ Bobby B. and "visual assassin" Pakelika, the group first attracted attention with the track "Suburban Life," which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Scream 2 and became a modern rock radio hit.
In a written statement, the Kings claim that they were fired for "excessive drug use, rowdiness and inciting riotous behavior," and that the final straw came when the Clown Posse discovered that its opening act was trading backstage passes for marijuana.
