Yes, I’ve awarded this 5-stars but music is extremely subjective, so this is only my personal evaluation. Unfortunately, the 30-second “sample” available on Amazon is rarely enough to appreciate music like this because it frequently doesn’t “kick-off” until that stage in the tracks!

Them were the days, so they were.

Long before Dave Seaman took residence in the halls of critic pleasing "arty-tarty" disk jockeys he resided over the club land in the way a conqueror surveys his newly acquired kingdom. Many a clubber left slain by his merciless beats and paralysed by seemingly endless crescendos of luscious, haunting melodies. The key word you have to remember here is "epic".

Some would argue differently (can't see why?) but this is something of a genre defining moment. Certainly a snapshot in the career of the affable decks man that can be located in the dictionary under the word "timeless". Anyway the music, it's very a much early evening house vibe from the off. Nothing too frantic you understand. Smoke City's one hit one wonder "Underwater Love" is given two goings over by New York disco aficionado David Morales, seamlessly blended into one. Furry Phreaks carry on the vocal theme with some sunset pleasing vibes before the lights are turned off. Before you know it the techno yearnings of "Easy Rider Blues" give way to the off-kilter disco beats of Rabbit in The Moon. There ain't no stopping the epic one now.

The ever haunting, it still remains one of my favourite remixes to this day, Nalin & Kane's take of Lustral's "Everytime" is one of the highlights. Right through to the end when Seaman layers those cries over "Western Approaches" it's mesmerising. The mood is certainly progressive as things settle down, but only temporally before Underworld forces you into silly dance floor manoeuvring in the form of "Cowgirl". Gosh Underworld used to be rather good didn't they? 12 minutes of high energy techy-ness and stuttering cut up vocals later things are left to fade out. Ah Seaman is giving us a breather. Is he hell! Prog' gaffers Blue Amazon (remember them?) drive Skunk Anansie to a pumping bass line, stabbing synths and strange effects that pan from ear to ear. This was epic house and no mistaking. PMF's late night drum 'n' bass is some how manipulated (more then a little studio trickery I may add) into the mix before the excruciatingly beautiful, chilled beats and epic stings, "Gorecki" leaves you standing in the middle of your room pondering where the mix starts and finishes. Truly mesmerising.

Perversely CD 2 finds Robert "Children" Miles going straight for the jugular. It starts fast and just gets faster! Darshan's "Mind Merge" leaves you nursing a few injured limbs and the thought of "walking on ceilings like a butterfly"(or something?). This is pacey-trance people.

Remember Seaman the way he should be and get a little carried away on a techno-trance wave with Miles as a bonus.

"Epic".

Dave Seaman's disc is, as you'd expect, a perfect Dave Seaman mix. Robert Miles' disc is.....erm.....punchy to say the least. None of that "dreamland" chill, but a real avalanche of gutsy pounding heavy house. That ought to earn a bad mark - i recall original reviewers of this album were bewildered and discomoded - but it's an astonishing disc if you've got the right mindset enabled, and worth a place in anyone's collection.

Recently dusted this down off the shelf having bought it in 97 and not really listened to it and thought i`d share my views with the world about this . Basically the Dave Seaman mix is a great snapshot of mellow progressive house in the vein of CD1 of the Rennaissance 4 from 1996 although it gets going a bit at the end with underworld and the remix of skunk anansie. The synth sounds on some of the tracks sound a bit dated but the quality of the tunes pulls you in . The remix of Garbage is an absolute vocal progressive classic as is the Nalin and Kane track which you could have appeared in the box of both progressive and trance DJ`s of the time.It`s soothing , atmospheric house music for the soul .
The Robert Miles CD is very different and quite banging aimed definately at the dance floor which some might enjoy but no me so i`ll let others tell you what its like in a more positive light .

Very good double CD, But I have only given 4 star. The newer Worldwide Singapore is even better 5'stars!
Dave Seamen is definitely one of the best, and he continues his 'talent' on every CD I have heard.

This is an excellent and slightly different double CD - particularly the Dave Seaman set whose diversity makes it a great listen away from the dancefloor
