4.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward Progressive of the highest order, 18 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Burnin the Candle at Both Ends (Audio CD)
This is one of the very few dance records that actually manages to hold together as an album. Cass and Slide manage to navigate their way skilfully between the Schylla of chaotic eclecticism and the Charibdis of chugging monotony. This is a tightly structured album and although it sticks to one style, progressive house, it finds enough room within to present a varied and enjoyable album. Its also pretty funky for a progressive album. The centrepiece and stand out track is the Tenaglia co-produced stomp that is Fever Rising but there's all kinds of stuff going on here like the more subtle and modulated tones of Opera or the surprisingly good Faith Less with none over then Jason Donovan on vocals. Oh yes.
Risible Ozzie soap stars aside there is nothing wrong here and the production is every bit as excellent as you might expect and theres enough variation here to keep things interesting. Not groundbreaking but just excellent tunes skilfully excellent. Really rises head and shoulders above the efforts of more famous and more lauded DJs the world over. Definitely worth a look.
