The Workout is a masterpiece of track selection and mixing. Carl Craig at his best.

This is a very solid, enjoyable mix with only a couple of weak tracks. Personally, I've never been a huge fan of Adult and even the C2 mix included here doesn't change my mind. I also don't dig "superficial" by Amp Fiddler too much as the chorus makes me think of "my prerogative" by Bobby Brown. Yuck.

Anyway, most of the tracks here tend to land at the crossroads of classic techno and a mid to late 90s house sound without exactly sounding like either. There are also some electro sounding bits and some vocal based tracks. Basically, you get a nice spectrum of styles that flow together well and sound fairly up to date. Admittedly, I had not previously heard of several of the producers that appear on this mix, so now I have some new things to investigate.

The liner notes don't explicitly say it, but there are some notes in there that lead me to believe this mix was digitally edited to correct mistakes. While using software to correct mistakes is the norm with many commercially released mix CDs, I'd honestly prefer a raw, unedited mix.

also availabla as a 4-LP Set with 16 trax - well chosen by Carl Craig - from minimal stuff from PERLON to banging 140 bpm and mor sounds by G-Flames BRING DOWN THE WALLS , which is a must..
