Back To Mine: Vol. 2 by Dave Seaman was the first chill-out CD I listened to, about 2-3 years ago, and it's been the benchmark against which all others I have heard since have measured against. A few have come really, really close to matching it (Nick Warren's BTM Vol.1 for instance), but this still ranks as my favorite.
Seaman's musical taste and track selection are nothing short of awe-inspiring, and the smoothness with which he blends track into track is unbelievable. Tracks 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 are mixed together with such seamless transitions of mood and tempo that if you aren't watching the display on your hi-fi, it would be next to impossible to make out the transitions. Amidst all this technical wizardry is the sheer beauty of the tracks. Genetica's "Future Past" moving into the Port Douglas Mix of Sasha's "Baja" evokes feelings of melancholic beauty washing into lake of moodiness, while the K&D mix of "Useless" just made me lie back, light up, close my eyes and smile through the entire song.
But the genius of this CD is greater than the sum of its parts- it lies in the overall sound produced by Dave Seaman like no one else can. If you only want to listen to hard, pounding house - you may want to broaden your horizons by checking this out. If you enjoy super smooth, deeply moving chill-out grooves mixed with by a magician, don't wait - go buy it.

A diverse selection of chill out tracks that just feel as if they belong together. Mixed to perfection by Dave Seaman, this is arguably the best in the 'Back To Mine' series. So many excellent tracks - Epsilon Phase is so beautiful and this is probably the only place many are likely to hear it (unless you buy Pentamerous Metamorphosis) while the decision to end the mix with Lamb's Gorecki is inspired. Top marks!!

This is a peerless selection, beautifully mixed. My stand-out 'Back to mine'. If you have others in the series, but haven't tasted this, then do so. Put it on, lay back and marvel at the seemless grooves. Top tracks? Global Communication's 'Epsilon Phase', Sneaker Pimps' 'Six Underground' and Lamb 'Gorecki', but there aren't any duffs.

the negative review of this cd just seems to be sour grapes to me, how on earth anyone can make such a bland statement shows just how clueless that person is with regards music?? constructive reviews help buyers - "self indulgent self obsessed" statements help no-one. Anyway back to the cd - Dave Seaman has provided a cracking little mix for late night grooving with this cd, perfect for the late nights, early mornings or indeed those lazy afternoons in the sun after a hard days works - some deep groovy tracks from the likes of sasha, depeche mode and the sneaker pimps show that he knows how to put together a sublime chill downtempo mix that appeals to the like minded lovers of this style of music.....If you havent got it...get it it is one not to be missed...if you have got it then you are indeed a clever lover of music of this genre...realesed in 1999 and still showing to be a good cd just shows how ahead of the times Dave Seaman is.

I found this a not very interesting at first - it's in some ways similar to the Nick Warren Back to Mine in that Seaman is a progressive DJ who uses a lot of ambient records; my preference in the Back to Mine series has been the mixes produced by Faithless and Tenaglia, etc, which draw more upon 'black' rather than 'white' forms of dance music, and have much more obviously house and discoish style tracks with a lot of rhythm and vocals in the mix. However, after several listens i've been totally won over to this CD. It's a very smooth mix, with tracks moving in and out seamlessly, and certain themes seemingly consistent across many tracks. I listen to it a lot now and really enjoy it. And it's got some great drums in there as well.

perfect for driving late at night to, with 4 people in a car, windows rolled down, a warm breeze and a good stereo.
perfect for lazy afternoon lying about
perfect for chilling after party music
perfect for just about anything.
dave seamn masters up one of the best mixes of all time, blending tracks almost imperceptibly. this cd is an experience, and one best enjoyed loudly.

Part 2: A little boogie down at your new friend's, three in the morning
Part 3: Reality and recollecting the entire night's affair

So happy that this purchase is in my CD collection. It's just the sort of music your weary self wants to listen to after a rambunctious night out of electro-filled clubbing.

My favourites are the string-smothered (as stated on the CD sleeve) Weather Storm, Baja (Port Douglas Mix) and Sonic Boom.

I fail to see how anyone could like this utterly boring self-indulgent rubbish. I've bought some poor stuff in the past but this beats the lot.
