I bought this quite a while ago, but it remains one of my favourite albums of all time. It's just so _there_. Every single track on the album is fantastic; the _sense_ of wistful optimism is very unusual for a dance / trance album. And more importantly, there is _Intelligence_, _Emotion_ and _Feeling_ in every track. This album gets at least 5 more stars than "Dreamland" - that album looks so pale and soulless in comparison.
Usually I limit the amount of superlatives I'd put in a review, but...
Although the whole thing really is a dance / trance effort, it is somehow more "human" than anything comparable. Tracks like "Everyday life", and "Freedom" boast incredible emotional energy in the lyrics, and a solid pace.
On the instrumental side "Maresias" is a track that imbues the listener with a sense of fond memories and ... leaving. "Textures" is a free-flowing ... thing ... that really does give a sense of audible textures shifting in the wind - it's incredible.
But even these tracks quite hits the spot the way that "Enjoy" does. This is an old school *quality* dance track. The drums are precise and sharp, there's a playfully brilliant bass line, the piano melody is perfect and has a slightly wistfully optimistic feel, and the lyrics are just the icing on the cake. I have over 300 albums and none of them have a track that quite captures the feel of optimistic energy the way this does.
If you want to live your life, live your life in joy.

Wow! Ever since I bought this album it has grown and grown on me and become one of my all time favourite artist albums. It is a melodic and ambient masterpiece with some amazing vocals. The album as a whole represents the journey through life, beginning with slow tracks like "Introducing" and "A New Flower" representing birth and the beginning of life. The album then picks up a little pace (although still remaining very much a chillout album) with tracks such as Freedom and Enjoy, and then slows back down towards the end, in particular on the last track, "Leaving Behind..." which represents the end of life and death. Highlights include "Freedom" (which includes some very impresive vocals courtesy of Kathy Sledge) and the epic "Everyday life". The album as a whole is quite different to Miles' first, "Dreamland", as isn't as hard and is much more ambient, but the amazing melodies that made "Dreamland" so good are still a big part of this album. This is a fantastic album. Buy it now. You won't regret it.

Format: Audio CD
Robert Miles has gone quite a way's in musical experimentation with "23AM" and except for "Children", this CD surpasses it's predecessor. The first three collections ("Introducing", "A New Flower" and "Everyday Life") are filled with layers of muted musical sound effects and keyboards all encompassing noise effects like thunderclaps, baby's talking, whispers, waves, faded conversations and; are those whales I hear? It's relaxing, but I could always pull out Vangelis. "Freedom" stands out with it's sophisticated percussion and the vocals are an improvement over "Dreamland". In fact, all three female vocalists (Danino, Kissoon and Sledge) do quite well on their own without trying to pass for a Madonna or Britney. "Enjoy" does well with a deep, rumbling bass, mechanical beat and heavily textured keyboards. "Heatwave" also 'beats the band' with an extremely funky bass line and lead guitars. Miles also dares to try real live sax and trumpets on several songs and although they are a welcome relief from 'electronic', they catch your interest and them simply plateau. The same happens with the guitar work. An acoustical will start out promisingly well and then stop to repeat itself, releived only by a great electric guitar that gets your hopes up only to leave you on another musical plateau. It seems like the entire album was a series of great misfires; almost as if it were an experiment. It does have incredible potential, but then everything eventually 'peters' out. One saving grace is the potentially commercial "Maresias", a mix of all that is good on this album. Robert Miles has grown with this set, but it simply feels unfinished and too quickly produced. It's like having a great idea and selling out too soon. We'll see what happens. It is still worth a good hard listen.

This is an excellent follow up to Dreamland. Just let the smooth lyrics take you on another journey that plays with your imagination. Listen to the narration as well - kind of tells a story through all the songs. Tracks range from the hit single, "Freedom" with Kathy Sledge (of Sister Sledge fame), to the 10 minute epic, "Everyday Life". Artwork in the sleeve is great too and includes all the lyrics. Definitely money well spent. I can't wait for the release of his next album.... be patient.

I actually found this CD in a second hand shop, and at seven quid decided to chance it... damn good decision! This is Robert Miles at his best, from the haunting opening tracks through to the almost jubilant and quite rickin' Heatwave, back down to the mellow Full Moon and Leaving Behind.
Just plain ol' Wow! factor here, damn impressed.
