...unfortunately they were not met. Two recent releases have so far refused to budge from my CD player. "Paul Van Dyk - The Politics Of Dancing" and "Total Euphoria", the tracks on show and the mixing on both was, and still is, Awesome!!!
Here you have the ingredients...a top DJ in Ferry Corsten (aka System F) and some great tracks. Unfortunately the great tracks (and better mixes of, especially Arms of Loren 2001, the vocals on the track are truly horrendous but the song itself is brilliant! a fact not missed by Dave Pearce!!) have all been used before and the mixing, quite frankly, is dull.
One can't help feeling that Ferry has been told what tracks to use and bundled them together as best he can! For a truly inspired set by Ferry Corsten seek out "FERRY CORSTEN-Live At Dance Valley (Purple Eye Holland CCD 1505)" Tricky to get hold of (import) but totally mind boggling!!!
To sum up...it`s not bad it`s just there is better out there.
