Simultaneously timeless and revolutionary, Laptop Symphony is guaranteed to thrill long-time BT fans as well as those new to the EDM scene.
Top Customer Reviews
I've not been blown away by the laptop symphony podcasts but, thought that a compilation CD would bring together the best of the music BT has mixed through these casts. CD1 is by far the weaker of the 2 cd's in my opinion but the 2nd CD redeems the purchase and is more what I'd expect, with a positive twist due to the mixes.
My recommendation, play CD2 first and leave CD1 in the box.
Looking forwards to BT's next 'BT' album.
CD1 highlights this by offering a very bass heavy electronic club-ready 1hr 10 seamless mix of some of the highlights from his radio show. It is not as refined as his own work and a far cry from This Binary Universe, but ultimately the track listing gives you a good idea of what to expect albeit the tracks are heavily remixed with him adding his unique touch to them.
CD2 is more trance focused allowing for a wind down after CD1, beginning with the memorable Counting the Points from Bayer and ending with a fantastic rework of Flaming June.
If you want to know whether to include this CD in your collection just look at the track list and listen to one or two of BT's radio shows. Don't expect something on the level of This Binary Universe or These Beautiful Machines but expect a decent compilation album.
but cd2 very nice mixes and makes up for a poor cd1 IMHO
will retry CD1 just to check but I always go on my initial experience and it wasnt a good one.
still good value at less than £8 cant go wrong
cd1 2 star
CD2 4 star
Disc 2 thankfully is much better, but as first impressions go.. Its a bit disappointing.. I got this the same week as a song across wires (new album) and thats superb.. usual brilliant BT
