This review is from: The Mix Collection Tale Of Us (Audio CD)
I can't believe somebody hasn't written a comment about this CD yet, so I guess it's up to me.
What we have here - for me anyway - is two exquisite mixes jammed packed with brilliant tracks. From the first note to the very last it will have you saying to yourself that Renaissance are truly back. I think this CD epitomizes where Renaissance are at this moment in time, and that is at the very top of their game. They have come back strong since Dave Seaman released his mix back in 2011 and have become stronger with each successive release. Along with Nick Warren's last mix, this latest release is the pinnacle of that progression for me. A true statement of intent that suggests to me they have found themselves again.
Both mixes are deep, funky, powerful, varied, delicate and beautiful all at the same time - just like they used to be. For me, Renaissance is truly back with this one. Brilliant!! Listen to it on your headphones and you will hear it in its full layered magnificence. It truly takes me back. It is a head nodding, cold rush inducing, tear jerking beauty - thanks Renaissance :-) Not that it has ever gone away over the last 20 odd years, but you have re-affirmed my deep love for this style of music.
If you are into this type of music you've probably got it already; If you haven't then get it, it's brilliant.
