Upon pressing play once more on your stereo, CD2 will reveal that the beats are picked up straight from where the first left off. Tracks such as The Orb's 'Once More' create a surreal atmosphere, before the tempo acculmulates and builds into a more sinister accolation of raw energy with the ingenious 'Waah' by POB, before 'Ruhe' and PFN's 'Put your earphones on' will pierce your senses, leaving you reeling with pumping hard house tracks that are positively mindboggling. The Chemical Brothers, 'Enjoyed' finishes, and will have you itching to play it all over again.
'Communicate' is truly a work of genius that no self respecting Sasha/Digweed/Progressive house fan should be without. The tracks are carefully chosen and mixed in typical Sasha/Digweed style. A beautifully well constructed piece of work. You won't be disappointed.
I like disc 1 more out of the two by virute of the track selection. Sasha takes you off easy, but by the time Clapton gives way to Sven Vath, you're grooving. I heard Barbarella for the first time at the release party for Communicate at Twilo (the club which this album is a tribute to) and it is the closest thing to orchestral perfection, a modern Mozart symphony. Deep Dish have seriously outdone themselves, creating chills and thrills and sounds galore, and each time you listen to the track, there is something new to cling onto and love. Sasha lets you off into a nice hard groove with Voices and builds into one of the greatest mixes I have ever heard, from Muzak into Pushing Too Hard. Anyone who was in the club or rave scene at this time have no doubt felt the frenzy that these two tracks create. Put them together, and it's like no other... Killahurtz- West on 27th is another Twilo favorite. Dark shifting and moody, the riff WILL get you. Sasha ends it with his one time fave, Breeder, mixed into a track that could very well make you cry, The Baguio Track. All of these tracks went on to become huge tracks in and of themself, but they aren't the normal cheese you'll hear by other bigtime DJ's. It's quality track selection by a truly quality DJ.
Disc 2. Well... it's just a very nice bonus to disc 1, chosen more for its atmosphere and energy, vs. Disc 1's excellent track selection.
Buy this album for Disc 1, keep it for Disc 2.
technically the mixing is superb and the toons are great. however, its not a "put on the stereo and get ready to go out" cd, but it is definately a come home throw on or a sit at work and let the hours drift by cd... recommended.
