This CD is very good. It is by far the most club friendly of the Lights Out series; being quite up tempo and danceable to. The DJ who is known for his dark style and tribal taste has let himself loose and has composed a melodic and freeflowing mix. Lawler unleashed! It still has that dark edge and tribal rhythm, but is somehow not as heavy as his usual fare. Its a good contrast.

I found myself enjoying the CD and think it is very listenable to. I think it is the best of the Lights Out series so far. More accessible perhaps? It does not have too much wierd stuff going on. But is an interesting ride through uptempo tribal with a touch of funk.

I bought this CD a week ago and I have not taken it out of my CD player. It's still getting better with each listen. In fact, I played it a house party the other weekend and it went down so well it was on a loop all night.

Unlike so many dance CDs there is not a slow track on it - it is all up tempo, groovy, tribal, funky interesting dance music. This is the type of music that you will hear in nightclubs and that's a great thing!

I've got all the other Lights Out Series and this is definately the most enjoyable so far.

I've been waiting a long time for a dance music CD that plays the type of music that you will hear at 2am in clubs just when the night's getting started and this is it. Very, very highly recommended.

This album is such a let down. After being a massive Lawler and Light's Out fan I was so looking forward to this. But it's nothing like LO1, 2 or 3, it's more like something a bad bedroom DJ would put together after shopping for records for the first time.

Every tune is the same plodding house music, and it goes on and on without changing at all, and the second CD is exactly the same. There's really only one memorable tune which comes on CD2, but even now I couldn't remember the hook to it.

After looking through the LO albums, the first three albums are Global Underground productions using several different labels - LO Decade is almost all Lawler's own record label tunes, massively lacking in quality but no doubt used as a springboard to get his own Viva tunes heard and bought.

Massive let down, avoid.

Easily one of the best compilations I've heard for a very long time. This is real underground house music with a back to basics feel. I've been into tribal house music from around '94 onwards and this is sheer class!!!

This compilation is 143 minutes of absolute aural tedium! And while generalized statements such as "...all of this music sounds the same...", tend to exasperate me, such statements can and should be applied liberally to this monotonous, robotic snooze-fest. Melody is non-existent (not sure what a previous reviewer was listening to) and after a few tracks, they become completely indistinguishable from one another...

This is nothing more than one long, extended, a-melodic tribal drum loop, peppered with a few samples and FX throughout. This was done time and again 10 years ago and with much better results. And for whatever it's worth, tribal house was and continues to be one of my favorite house music genres...

@ Dan Symmons - You're quite certain of a great many things, there, huh?... LOL Stick to your own critical review of the music and leave the personal attacks (no 'genre' lectures from hipster posers, no ignorant assumptions regarding my marital status and breeding habits, please) which allow for '0' accountability, out of it. You petulant child.

@ roger ridell
You say you love tribal house but i'm not sure if you've ever acrtually been to a club to listen to tribal music???
I'm sure you've listened to the same tribal house mix from 10 years ago over and over but please understand that you are clearly dis-illusioned!
The first cd is a variation of deep house with tribal samples!
The second cd has 3 'classic' sounding tribal tracks but the rest is a modern take on what you would actually hear in a club if you went to one!!!!! you may have kids and a missus now so understandable that you are clearly a 'mug' and just putting your 2 pence worth in
Why put such a 'intelligent' sounding comment when you clearly have no clue
good cd, best to go and see steve lawler live to appreciate it
amen
