...of Mark Doyle..there has been little consistency since he set up Fierce..I find this compilation frustrating..the first is named Poolside Chill, whilst undoubtedly a fine collection of songs more for after club relaxing or cosying by fireside after day on slopes etc, doesn't conjure images of the White Isle or sunny climes..The 2nd CD is a collection re-hashed oldies and some cheesey efforts where MD has let the standard slip considerably..The 3rd is very electro and flows quite well, however a few oldies in there as well..I think the only people that will get this, are the genuine and regular visitors to Es Vive and Base Bar..In my view HK are getting all the decent tunes and mixes at the moment, but for me it's swings and roundabouts when HK put out a bad one, MD seems to pull the rabbit out of the hat and vice versa...if you like uplifting vocal house like me, might not be your bag.

sorry, i think i have to agree with another reviewer though i maybe more harsh, i just don't get it, i bought this on the strength of summer time and club thing i heard on the es vive web site. For me out of a album of 3 discs there are about 6 half decent tracks and that is it!
