Reviewed by David Bain

Dependance, a five-person, hip-hop, drum'n'bass group from the North East, have stacks of energy and enough variety of styles to appeal to most punters, although they primarily work in schools making this release firmly aimed at that market. Dare I say it, they tread very closely in the well worn path taken by The Tribe. "Stomp" kicks the journey off, with hyped up shout outs laid over a big-beat, hip-hop sound. Huge slabs of pop-tinged R&B follow with mesmerizing singing, delivering messages about how amazing God is and never giving him up. The raps, chopped up into most of the tracks, keep the pace going and are delivered in a sing-a-along style. Sometimes getting a bit too heavy and dark, like on "Meaningless" and "Mask", I found the desperate tones in the rapping not quite fitting with the upbeat sound initially put down. The variations get crazier as Dependance take a whole track out to deliver a band-member testimony. This is followed by the track "Pressure", a bizarre mix up of dubby drum'n'bass with a Faithless influence on the vocal. It's a mixed bag of sweet and sour tunes that Dependance offer us. This album is pitched well at their schools' audience, but clearly isn't in the running for hip-hop album of the year.

The dependance cd is really good. I saw dependance live at merseyfest and they were fab,so I was really excited when i found out the cd was due out. Ellie's vocals are amazing. My favourite song is the mask one - a truly fantastic album- watch out tribe/delerious you have competition!!!!!!

This album will send Gods message of the Gospel into thousands of young kids hearts. The highly commercial sound will also help convey the timeless message that Jesus died for the sins of the world and all else is utterly meaningless.
Love Mr X!

This ablum is totally mint and will appeal to unchurch young people with its unique sound and challanging in ya face message, theres no pussy footing around with the truth of what they are saying about life with and without God! This is bound to be 'dark and heavy' life without God is just that!!
This review doesn't even match the quality dependance put into there gigs and passion for the what they believe.
