In my opinion, Beach House was the most consistent series on Hed Kandi. However, the 2005 edition was a major let-down, and I found the 2006 edition of Beach Angel lacking.

I'm happy to see that this year's instalment is back on track after the last couple of releases, but as a previous reviewer said, there are far too many repeated tracks.

CD 1

The first disc is extremely consistent and enjoyable. "Everybody Wants To Rule the World" is a great remix of the 1980s Tears for Fears track, "Reasons" harks back to the early Beach House compilations, and "Washes Over You" has beautiful sun-kissed female vocals and a really good bassline. Watch out for the piano about halfway into this track: classic stuff.

With "Twisted by the Pool", Mark admits to shameless self-promotion with a new remix of this Fac15 track, but with vocals like these (and top lyrics, I might add) I think the self-promotion can be excused. "So Far" has a nice intro, a funky bass guitar line with a bit of acoustic guitar thrown in, and yet more great female vocals. Later on we have "Universal Love", which starts out nice enough, but after the first minute it really takes off. Absolutely wonderful vocals and melody, lovely harmonies and some utterly unforgettable chords. A real grower.

Peyton is back with "Holiday" - at over 9 minutes, it's long, but brilliant. A slow build-up that lures you in and grabs you after 2 minutes with a classic riff. Then the vocals start at 2:30 and you know he's struck gold yet again. Highly recommended.

Lesser tracks include "Illuminate", which benefits from a bright and melodic female vocal that holds everything together perfectly, but the melody is a bit overdone.

Well what can I say..except buy this..!! This has definately hit the mark ( no pun intended ) this time, Fierce Disco ( received as a pressie ) was, for me lacking in direction and content. It too had oldies but didn't work due to the aforementioned..I agree with Mr Barden's synopsis/review totally, however I am not going to mark it down due to the high content of old songs as the re-mixes and flow of the Cd's totally work..CD1 is more laid back and the stand out tracks are 2,3,4, and 10, CD2 and is very reminiscent of Disco Kandi of past..it starts slowly and within a couple of tracks you are up on the dancefloor..CD3 as Mark says Latin House Anthems he doesn't lie and the track listings are there for everyone to see, so why berate the man when he was open and honest??;- and what a CD..!! Shake your booty from beginning to end..! I agree the feel of the collection , especially CD 2 is moving away from the Balearic, Latin smooth feel of previous Beach House with a slightly more Central/Western European edge, but what a soundtrack to the summer or your Saturday night..! this CD def more uptempo than Beach 2006, which doesn't actually get off the ground on Cd2 when you think it might climax with a stormer track, and for me this just edges it, but don't get me wrong Beach 2006 still bloody good..! For those that were having a moan re the cost/inclusion of re-worked classics ratio - 1 Did you not read the track listing before purchase..? and 2 - Use your noggin- source it at a decent price from the market place,( or elsewhere )..Well done Mark back on track..! But as a foot note , I know you are working hard to establish this little nugget of genius but could you source some good new tunes if poss, I know they might not be out there or meanie label execs being nasty with licences, but please try before even your most ardent fans jump ship back to ..sshh .....!!

Great summer balearic tunes, melodic triple CD, I rarely write reviews, but this was worthy of the effort, I highly recommend.
