4.0 out of 5 stars SLAM!, 21 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Hold Your Colour (Audio CD)
Sinse late last summer ive been hearing great things about Pendulum and how a DnB revolution is upon us. Without doubt Pendulum have helped bring DnB to the masses but this album I feel has become to commericial, selling out their true DnB roots.

Dont get me wrong this is a stunning album with several stand out tracks, two of which being the highly energy filled SLAM, a cross between DnB and hard house thats been ripping up clubs for months and tarantula, a heavy, darker track with a bigger DnB feel about it. other songs like Masochist and Fasten Your Seatbelt have a harder DnB feel while Spiral and Plastic World offer a lull and a more after hours chillout feel. The outstanding track on the album has to be Hold Your Colour, a DnB track that manages to capture the euphoric state of the nations dancefloors. The album is certainly diverse, energetic beats, hard DnB and sofet chill out all merge effortlessly into one. personally i was expecting more tracks like Slam and tarantula but still a superb outting and cant wait to hear more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gatecrasher, 21 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Gatecrasher Classics 2 (Audio CD)
Well doesnt this just take you back to the days of the super clubs. Three CDs jam packed full of classic trance tunes from the glory days of the super club Gatecrasher. Everything is here (well nearly everything) from Mauro Picotto, to Underworld, to Paul Oakenfold and the unforgettable tunes from PPK and Zombie Nation. All 3 cds take you on an emtion filled trip with euphoric highs and brings the atmosphere of gatecrasher to your own sound system. Personally i believe this is better than the first classics outings, but only marginally. One slight disappoin though, i know they were present on the last volume of classics, but to me you cannot have a 'classics' trance album withoun Delerium - Selince, and Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar! This aside click buy button now!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Trinity, 29 Oct. 2005
This review is from: The Trinity (Audio CD)
A third album is both an achievement and an indication of whether an artist will succeed in the future and go onto make many more. Sean Paul's last two albums proved that he is not just a one of blip. The Grammy winning Dutty Rock was an enormous success and almost single handedly introduced the caribbean sound to the mainstream opening doors for the likes of nina sky, wayne wonder and the re-emergance of the likes of elephant man
The Trinity has a lot to live up and it dam sure tries with many high profile collaborations and plenty of energy. The problem is the last outing had so many dam good songs. this time round Sean Paul seems to have lost some of his caribbean edge and the songs, still of a great quality, have become more regular RnB and Hip-Hop. We Be Burning, the first release is instantly addictive with catchy coureses and infectious beat. Keeping Warm is the next track to stand out, with a rougher feel and a return to more caribbean style. A personal favourite of mine is Head In The Zone, a more upbeat party club song whic will get you moving
Overall a very good album, well worth a listen and purchase. Nevertheless it does not quite compare to the amazing Dutty Rock. However still a quality outing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Selection, 4 Oct. 2005
Pete Tong is undoubtedly one of Britains biggest DJs holding down for 7 years the Essential Selection radio show. Pete has showcased some of the biggest songs over the years many weeks before they hit the mainstream. The Essential Selection is complete with some of the biggest tracks over the last year or so that Pete has been regularily spinning on air. Mainly funky house with some eclectic tracks the highlights must be Mylo, Chemical Brothers and Bob Sinclar songs. There are also fantastic remix's of U2's City Of Blinding Lights and the best track on the album, The Killers and Mr Brightside. All of the other big songs in club land are here and the album is perfect way to kick off your weekend night out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 28 Sept. 2005
This review is from: The Other Side (Audio CD)
Following up last years huge hit Crush, paul van dyk is back with a another blockbuster club track, The Other Side with vocals from wayne jackson. All summer the worlds best Djs have been championing this song making it possibly the biggest track of the summer in the med. Fantastic commercial trance radio edit packed with harder club versions, a song that will always get the party rocking. PVD is back and boy do you know it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Way, 28 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Right Of Way (Audio CD)
I have always been an fan of ferry corsten and his many guises but was slightly aprehensive when he released this album, as some albums from Djs who prodominantly do sets and mixes often dont carry over well into studio albums. this album however bucks the trend with many quality songs esspecially holding on, punk, it's time and rock your body. All have enjoyed huge dancefloor success being championed by many world famous DJs both in clubs and on radio. The slight problem i have is that ferrys trancec origins from adagio for strings, his new years day remix and art of trance seem to have been lost in this, making it slightly more mainstream and radio friendly. Bar this the odd weaker song does not detract from a great first album from ferry, bring on his next release!

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Have Been Great, 8 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Clubland 7 (Audio CD)
Maybe its the style of dance music im particularily interested in, but how many of these songs will actually be played in a club. Most of these songs are commercial pop dance instead of from the heart dance anthems. Dont get me wrong but the songs on here are great songs this year, a few will still be around next year but only a few. What really lets this down is the poor quality of mixing, if you can call it mixing. It sounds just like your fader on the computer with similarish songs positioned next to each other so the transition seems like a mix. They have a great name going for this compilation, but instead of being a clubbers essential, is a mediocre dance NOW cd.

Global Gathering 2005 is quite possibly the difinitive dance collection for summer 05. Featuring all the top trance and house tracks from the year so far, and up and coming soundtracks to your summer. This album simply encapsulates this time of the year perfectly with upbeat, lively and energetic dance tunes
To begin with do not be put off by numorous artists you may not have heard of. This album doesnt just cover those songs that make the mainstream, but also the huge tracks in club land. Infact the lesser well known tracks often turn out to be the better tracks.
This is a must for all dance fans as it is truelly your guide to summer 05. Would have been nice to have a live mix from the festival itself but i suppose we cant have everything can we?

5.0 out of 5 stars X & Y, 29 Jun. 2005
This review is from: X&Y (Audio CD)
After the amazing success of their previous two albums it was difficult to see where coldplay could go next. But to our emmence relief they have come up with a slightly new formula. In the main out go the more energetic rock songs like Politik and Shiver and income more heartfelt melodic tracks. Okay the band still tries the more rock styled appraoch and it works fantastically on Speed Of Sound. However the stand out tracks must be Fix You and Twisted Logic, two enormously emotion filled tracks the really pull you into the album. these also demostrate the talents the band and chris inparticular still have for writing classic songs
One disappointment of the album is that it takes quite a few listens to find the great songs. Too many sound similar and not enough or instantly recognisable. this is not neccassarily a critism as every track on the album is good in its own right, just it takes a long time for them to shine through

5.0 out of 5 stars Avenue, 16 Jun. 2005
This review is from: The Avenue (Audio CD)
with this single you have just got to be honest. Based on Dizzee's and the rest of Roll Deeps past you would be forgiven for expecting and grimey track. This however is far from the truth, using 80's music and samples with the crews own vocals over top is a completely unexpected direction. The result is a much softer radio friendly song. Purist grime and Roll Deep fans will probably not like this due to its sheer commercialness, however if you are a fan of Hip-Hop and UK Rap this is probably going to be a song you dont want a miss. Catchy lyrics, upbeat sound makes this both a feel good song and incrdibly infectious. Sure to be a summer hit.
(only heard track via radio play, unsure on what the single is going to be packaged with upon release)
