I'm not going to sit here and describe the aural interpretation for each track in this this compilation. But what i can tell you is that for those who have yet to listen to the cd, due to the relative rarity are missing out on one of the top gems of a 2004 compliation of house/progressive trance/breaks mix. After all, you are finally hearing a compliation from the guy also know as wrecked angle(known for countless electronic remixes).
The breaks cd 1 is by far the best of the 2, with is amazing track selection, very remincent of Summerbreeze 2 - noel sanger, those who have got to taste that 2002-2003 cd know why its considered one of the best electronica cds of that year. The second half of gerrard's compilation is where the real talents of track selection & mixing is shown, its a non stop ride, where each following track takes the cd to new heights. It was so good, that its still remains on my playlist even after 2 months of listening. (5+ stars/5)
The progressive cd 2 is less intriguing, with a few key tracks that fall into what you would here in a nick warren or sasha & digweed set. Very powerful, and touching on the darker side of house. But not as soul driving as the first cd. (4 stars/5)
If i could best describe Paul Gerrards style he's a mix of the following in no particular order:
Sasha, digweed, hybrid, noel sanger, Satoshi tommie, nick warren, nubreed
I'd say get this for just the breaks cd by itself.... amazing
