This album changed my life (nearly),
This review is from: Ima (Audio CD)
I was a student when this album appeared and bought it pretty much straight away, as I did back in those days, due to a healthy interest in clubs at the time. Many others purchased around the time, (Robert Miles to name but one), have seldom graced my CD player since those days, but BT just gets better.
I have his subsequent releases, which are all supurb, but this album holds that special something, the ability to make your spine tingle, be it with the outright euphoria of Divinity, or the subtle melodies of Tripping the Light Fantastic.
The Sasha mix is a handy way to catch up on BT's previous releases and is skillfully done, though I sometimes lose the thread if not really into it, at around the 30 minute mark! I find all the tracks have been favourites at one time or another, I always find something new in each song on this album, surely a sign of greatness. It's also good one for showing off/testing a hi-fi, I bought my last pair of speakers on the basis of hearing parts this album through them!
As an aside, apparently appaled by his imitators, BT rejected an entire follow-up album of similar material and moved on, which surely must be one of music's great losses.
