It's actually dubstep in the truest sense of the genre, in that most modern stuff that people consider dubstep is a newer variation on a very old genre.
Well I've argued this with my friends too. And it doesn't help that I don't really know what Dubstep is - I think of Burial. Basically the Wiki page for Dubstep reads:
Quote:Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in south London, United Kingdom. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals".
But I get very little of that from the album. Granted, that definition could be like you said, what modern or popular Dubstep is these days.
