Listened to it a few times now, some really good tracks on it, nice selection of tunes.
What puzzles me slightly is that although it's a mix CD, it's not really "mixed" all the way through, yet nearly all the songs with beats seem to be on time...so it could be. Don't let that put you off, I'm listening to it a lot at the moment.
If you're looking for some commercial selection of tunes, give this a miss. If, on the other hand, you're looking for something that will get you nodding away and looking on the back of the CD case to look at what song 5 is then don't delay in getting this.
Anyone that sticks the Byrds and Boards of Canada on a mix CD with a Tribe called Quest gets my vote anyway.

A range of sounds, mostly 90's hip-hop, and every now and then something different pops up, providing touches of folk, country, latin and stuff with a psychedelic edge.
The predominance of big, heavy beats sets the tempo for most of the mix, with a slight change of direction towards the end which I at first thought disrupted the flow a little but I got over it.
The influence of these tracks on Aim's work is apparent, so if you're already a fan I'd recommend this to you.
The highlight for me is probably James Yorkston's tune - an acoustic island in an ocean of beats!!

If you love AIM, you'll love this. It's very smooooth, and the tunes are a perfect mix of up tempo, and Sunday summer chill out tunes. If you get the chance to buy, do so!!.As although this is not on vinyl this will be sort after by people with music taste long after being deleted . Sweet music to listen, laugh, and love too!!
