A different take on this; it's alright but past its sell by date.

Here is a different take on this album. I find it quite conventional and old fashioned. To be honest this sort of music was popular and progressive over 10 years ago when Global Underground was releasing albums by Dave Seaman and John Digweed. I feel that this sort of compilation has all been done before. So many times.
The music is okay, but it is a bit mundane. I don't find it very inspiring to be honest. But your milage may vary. There is much more interesting stuff being released these days. Such Agoria's new album, or some of the strange and eclectic recent releases from GU.
It seems that dance music has turned full circle, and now mainline progressive house just isn't interesting any more. Felix Da Housecat's mix for GU was slated by GU fans, but to be honest it was a lot fresher and more interesting then repeating old styles over and over again.
If you like mainstream progressive house/trance then this album will probably suffice. But I'm looking further afield these days. And so are most dance music producers like Global Underground, Balance and Renaissance (despite some kicking and screaming by old prog fans lol).
