Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The first in Ministry Of Sound's huge-selling Trance Nation series, this volume sees System F man Ferry Corsten tackling a set that, in hindsight, is as eclectic as it is accomplished. It's easy to sneer as the compilation kicks with Robert Miles' trite Euro-cheese anthem "Children", but Corsten, eager to blow his own trumpet, quickly jams it into his very own "Out Of The Blue"--a track that can claim to be trance's very own "Blue Monday". Underworld's "Dark And Long" and Lucid's "I Can't Help Myself" prove the first disc's highlights, but disc two takes us from the sublime to the ridiculous--Paul Oakenfold's remix of Mansun's "Wide Open Space" fronts a veritable trance hit parade, with tracks from Faithless, Paul Van Dyk, BT, and let's not forget the omnipresent ATB's "9PM (Til I Come)". Trance Nation 1 does exactly what it says on the box. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars exellent 3 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
Exellent trace album, everytime I listen to it I'm back in 1999 wondering what the 21st century is going to be like.

Trance is pretty dead now, replaced by stoner hip-hop rubbish, but this is trance at it's best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has your work computer got a CD? Get this. 2 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
I work in a cube farm (Dilbert(tm)). This CD gives excellent motivational music to help concentration and drown out all the other random noises. ALL of the tracks are growing on me, though only 3 or 4 stood out immediately. Beware 'Invisible' - she will hypnotise you!

This was pretty much on in the kitchen of my friends house permanently for about 3 years solid. Whether we were going out, coming back or having a night in. Every track IS a winner and represents a period/time/mood when 'trance' was at its best. There are many types of trance but representing a mind set this cd and mix can't be bettered. Whether you put it on for a lazy Saturday afternoon, with a few beers or when stumbling back in at a late hour, this mix will have you in the mood for continuing. I can't recommend it highly enough. It takes on the Global Underground series, which are brilliant in themselves, head on. The one mix cd that challenges it is Oakenfold's Great Wall. That's for another day. Highlight track has to be the Mansun track remixed by Oakey. Put it on and let it take you back to an era when everyone threw shapes in the church of dance :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Have'nt even bought it yet, but I will review it 20 Aug 2007
By Jonlee
Format:Audio CD
I have'nt bought this yet as I have only just found it and am waiting(oh...god...the waiting) till pay-day to buy it. This is one of those albums that has every song on it for the trance generation (the original trance generation, not all the bull that was a spin-off from it). The number of times I have listened to this albums is a bit scary, especially considering every time I hear one of the tunes on it on the radio I expect a beautiful transition into the next song on the track listing, BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS :(

If you say you love trance and dont have this album, your just kidding yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 9 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Simply fantastic.
A collection of true Trance music, containing none of the 'let's-have-a-girl-singing-in-every-track' crap that is released today.
I bought this album when it was released and it is still one of my favourite albums.
If you can get hold of it, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars LENGENDRY! 29 July 2009
By Watty
Format:Audio CD
This was the first trance album I bought back in 1999 as a newcomer to the scene - very happy days!! This is the ultimate dance album, full of classic tracks and beautifully mixed. Tunes such as "Pearl River", "Endless Wave" and "Cream" and classics like "Offshore" and "Cafe del Mar" take you on the ultimate trance journey! "Wide Open Space" - what an opener!! Takes me back and still sounds great! You really need to own this cd - awesome!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Goose bumply 26 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have been a great fan of Ministry of sound, and to bring this new 'Nation' seris out is great news. The mixes in the album very good what I mean is that, you that there are all great song on it the blend as one. But as the same time this is raw, it take you on a jorney of the early morinigs and the big beats in it lifts your feet off of the ground. Makes you hair stand up reminding you of the great clubs that the music is played.
