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: 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.
