Not For The Purists,
This review is from: Pure Deep House 2 - The Very Best Of Deep House & Garage (Audio CD)
Pure Deep House 2 has it's moments but I feel it's pure, deep and very best of aspect is pushing it this time. There's alot more remixed commercial(pop) music this time, coupled with alot of what I would regard as filler.
The issue seems to be the need to please everybody with this second compilation which only serves to dilute the very nature of what deep house is essentially about. The more pop based remixes are indicative of this but to the more mainstream listener this may make the cds more appealing.
As a compilation of house and garage as a general crowd pleaser it ticks all the boxes but for the deeper listener this may have lost it's pure, deep vibe somewhat more than it's previous release. Not that the first was as deep or pure as it should have been but it balanced well.
A good set of cds to encapsulate the spring/summer vibe, but the deep, pure, very best of title is more misleading than ever. There's deeper compilations out there for the deeper, purer minded listener of the genre.

I agree to some extent. Track 1 really didn't bode well, and it put me off a little, but I still think this is a really solid compilation, not quite reaching volume 1's level, but disc 3 I'd argue is better on this volume than previous.

what would you recommend? I liked the first one, but slightly put off this one with all the comments!
