Review:

While AsianVibrations listeners might have heard some of these tracks elsewhere, they definitely have not savored them in such a cohesive and complete compilation such as this. This album is a cd burner's nightmare - never will you wish to rearrange, remove or add any tracks by re-burning.

Greats, knowns, unknowns and maybe even one hit wonders all grace the listing of this album with tracks that relax, yet astound you with the invigorating originality that pulsates through these artist's veins. Never are you left bored or wondering where the talent has disappeared. These are great tracks to chill out to but, never be they sleep inducing.

It does seem though, that some of the tracks are shorter versions of the originals - such as Paths by Roberto Concina (aka Robert Miles). One has to wonder how much of the original music is missing; if Paths is any indication there is at least a third of each track lost in production and editing.

o worries though - collectively it's still well worth the money.
