5.0 out of 5 stars A Break from the norm, 23 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Back to Mine - Adam Freeland (Audio CD)
I only write reviews if I think an album is special - hence this is only my second (the other being for Sasha and Digweed's Northern Exposure 1 - I rest my case).

This compilation is exceptional for a number of reasons. Firstly, Freeland uses all of the components of a brilliant set - moments of euphoria and melancholy, minimalism and lush soundscapes, without dropping in a single dance track. The mix into Interpol's Untitled is inspirational, reminiscent of Sasha's use of sound and key.

Even more remarkable is the programming. Freeland plays the set in reverse, with the set dropping in tempo, rather than increasing as is the norm. As a result he's managed to capture the whole essence of this series. As is customary after a big night, the group returns home, puts on some big, bold tunes to continue the euphoria and as the night draws on the tempo decreases. In this context, Freeland has managed to encapsulate a few hours into 70 odd minutes perfectly. This IS the alternative chill-out album and I've never heard anything quite like it.
