While on 1998's TNT it seems like the drums are the instrument that everything is centered around and that we are focusing on the most, here on their debut it's all about the bass. There's some interesting stuff happening on the drums and other percussion instruments, like marimbas and stuff, but everything is centered around the bass, which gives a very different listening experience when compared to TNT. It's hard to choose a favorite out of the two, but I have to say this is much better than 2001's Standards.
