i have been a huge fan of the essential selection series which i first started collecting back in 1998. there hasnt been many of these compilations for a while and pete has made great work of this one. when i first listened to it, i didnt think too much of it (as it is a bit different from other mixes) but after i had gone through the albumn a few times i realised how excellent it is! this cd is deffinately a must for this year as it doesnt contain cheese (such as the new ministry of sound cd's). the best essential selections where the ones ranging from 1998-1999, and i would highly reccomend them. it would have been nice to see a limited edition version of this essential, but the cd is great anyway! there is a wide range of music spread out across both cd's, and most of it is heard in the clubs. if you are sick of the same charty rubbish, then this is a must!!!!
