Floor fillers old & new(ish)

At [...] for over 50 trance tracks this would have to be pretty naff to be bad value for money. I'm glad to report that it is, for the most part, a balanced and well chosen retrospective.
Far too many trance albums choose boring remixes but many of these tracks are the originals and most of the remixes are worth a listen. It would be near impossible to please everyone all the way through such a huge collection and frankly I wasn't disappointed very often & when I was it was simply my opinion of a track and not because a dull remix was picked and it would be true to say just about all the music here deserves it's place on the album.
The remix is nicely segued and the 3 continuous remixes always seem a bit redundant to me but are a nice touch if they suit you.
This also scores well for me because whoever chose the content stuck to trance and avoided the temptation to slip in other dance genre.
The recording is vibrant and avoids the lack of depth that can haunt dance track downloads.
If you wonder what Trance might be all about then give this a go as there are a lot of solid tunes here and at this price you should feel well pleased with the VFM. If you like it you might want to try a sub-genre of trance, the 'psy-trance Euphoria' albums are excellent for instance.
If you are an old hand with then you are likely to have your favourites from this lot anyway but this may be a handy 'all in one' collection for you too.
Either way this presents a lot of dependable music for not a lot of money.
