This album was a real gutbuster for me as it was the last album from swedish house mafia, so i had to buy it and it didnt disappoint. Great tracks and artists. The delivery was great and i had no problems or arguements to start. Whatever you do just buy the album and enjoy.
Once again SHM live up to the standard expected by them. Considering it is their last album they definately left us something to remember them by. This album features all of the SHM singles in their full lengths plus some new unreleased songs such as "Euphoria" - Usher & SHM. The "Continuous mix" is the soundtrack to their 'One Last Tour' and is awesome to listen to. Then the remixes and other artists on the album tie it up brilliantly. I don't know why but i love the sound of the hook in "Atom".
Having read the BBC (Broadcasting Bad Covers) critics review of this album I felt the need to set the record straight. He calls it exhausting and impatient which is basically everything you want from the mafia, if you want to be patient to achieve a devastating musical high then you should probably invest in Janine Jensen and tune in to a classical movement or two. He also states that it should be listened to with your critical faculties compromised and it only makes sense under the lasers, well once again I'd like to point out that this is pretty much what you're buying into when you buy a euphoric acid dance album.
However I'm not here to agree with the man but to counter point his opinion, until now is great whether you're track skipping and getting ready to go out, listening to the entire journey whilst taking a walk and daydreaming or experiencing the full wealth it has to offer to you on a dance floor in some random club with a group of like minded party junkies. The idea of this genre of music is not to stimulate philosophical musings although some would argue dance in all it's forms has a theological leaning, but to have a great anthem to loose a night to. So when any of this mix is poured onto your dance floor don't ask if it makes sense just shut up and dance.
I got this today and I think it's immense and I wish I'd gone to the show back in the summer. All of SHM's singles are on here including the superb Greyhound and the number hit Don't You Worry Child along with the other 20 tracks on here I can't find fault here you MUST by this album and as it is mixed it's perfect for any party. I don't like a lot of DJ's Above and Beyond being the best but SHM have blown me away...shame they're splitting up after the One Last Tour...Good stuff and essential dance album!!
This is a great CD for a party most of the tracks are mixed through so easy to chuck on and leave. The tracks themselves are good as well the only slight gripe I have is it seems to have been produced for the mainstream and not the fan. I feel it could have had a harder edge and been abit more in your face, but still a great album. Highly recomended.
