TRASH! This is not Chicane. Not sure what's going on here. If this is the man that put out the stunningly beautiful 'Far from maddening crowds' and ' Behind the sun' then for this one he must have either been with a woman that made him make some trash similar to what she listened to or had somehow taken a drug that messed his brain up. This album should have been called 'In with the brain-dead crowds'! It's down there with the low-life dance music of the modern era, that has no meaning and no substance. I'm 100% certain that if he actually released 'Easy to assemble' then this album would have never come about. Apparently he told us that he used the best parts from that album and put them on this one, doubt it, that was for publicity. What he thought his fans wanted to hear and what his fans actually wanted to hear are two totally different things here. This is just as commercial as an Adele album, it's about as far away from his early work as possible. There are a couple of chilled ones on here that don't really do much but are surely the best ones on it, but they would suit being on an early album, they don't mix well into this stuff. Jesus, even the artwork is creepy and un-imaginative. Luckily he woke up from this nightmare and stared to make good tunes again as proved on his later albums. Do not waste your money or time on this album, skip to the next 'Giants' is a much better album.

This has nothing to do with the previous albums, this is release is no way so good as the previous Albums, this is that kind of music you listen in the cinema room while waiting the movie begins.

I had this disc once. The cover looked nice, but the content was rubbish. After his first 2 releases I thought this was going to be a kind of stunner, but it only appeared as a blooper. There was only a few songs I liked during a listen. Those were the songs "Nothing", "Far Away From You" and "Time Of Your Life" - which even was misspelled on the back of the album inlay that I owned.

I guess the good old times of "Far From The Maddening Crowds" and "Behind The Sun" are over. I always enjoyed both of them as the REAL summer albums. Kind-of island feeling in the sun. This wasn't even the sound I'd like to listen to when having a barbecue with friends. I'd feel too ashamed.

I guess the more music Nick does, the lazier, more uncreative and boring he gets. With his new releases I get headaches just because I heared the sound and rhythm samples - he uses - somewhere else before, so I got rid of them.

I will go on enjoying the old stuff. I want to feel like the person far away from the crowds, not the meatball turned on the grill.

Nevertheless, thank you Nick for enhancing the high times and prime times of music in the late 90s!

Wanted the rare promo version of "far away from you" - which is actually listed here as "turning corners". Paid my money, downloaded it and guess what? I get the standard release version and not the promo version as above. Not happy.
