ok i havent been into hardcore that long but im really starting to lean towards the techno trance/ trancore side rather than happy hardcore, purely because of the energy and euphoria that comes from trance. ok so theres been 2 big commercial 'trancecore cd's out this year' hardcore nation and clubland xtreme hardcore. when i first listened to disc 1 of hardcore nation i thought it was great but found the other 2 discs dissapointing. so i got this cd and was pleased with the majority.
disc 1. some good tunes from styles are the standouts really and some good re con remixes, overall probabaly the weakest disc out of the 3 for me.
disc 2. a very good cd i like pretty much all of it, stand out tracks for me being, neckbraker, ls drive, elements and most of all cutting deep.
disc 3. now ive seen a few people say this was dissapointing, now either they're expectation is too high or im listening to the wrong stuff, personally i love hixxy, and i can listen to this cd over and over i like the hardcore takes on set you free and come with me, but to be honest they get boring quick. better than life is good as is end of time, your shining isnt bad but ive heard better versions. but the main reason i love this cd so much is track 9. nightlife. especially the last section if they cut out the bloke talking and just repeated the last line i think it will be stronger but it is dope as hell.
