Has anyone noticed that the images of him are in the likeness of Sid vicious, Arnold Schwarzenegger , and David Bowie ? Or is this not true? Just a thought.

CD1 has been very much genre-defining and ear-forming to me.

Fantastic moments encounter to the listener on CD 1 as well as an hour of mostly name-dropping on CD 2. CD 1 has its magic moments in the change between cold-pressed German Tech-House and smashers like The Juan MacLean's 80ies homage or Derrick Carter's fanfare of the self-esteem. CD 1 is full of brilliant breaks and meets best the special claims of DJ Hell.

To me Playgroup's cover of Depeche Modes Snyth-hymn "Behind The Wheel" is the blowoff. Martin L. Gore has subsumed in several simple metaphors in this track that represent the whole range of music to me: worship and communication, emotion and auto-aggression, egocentrism and cultivated fear of the modern world, devotion and sex. Trevor Jackson / Ewan Pearson rearranged this in a simply hurting way. Unmatched...

The Recloose track as well as Carter's wake some consciousness but at first they kick ass while evolving from what human doubt is stuck in. They are best conjunct by Pantytec'c and Bobby Konders' jazzy rhytm patterns and fit the hedonistic dancer's mood perfectly.

Hell especially refers to "They keep dancing" following the liner notes and in fact it's arrangement is worth all attention but in my ears the full mix is brilliant in its eclectic approach of making you dance with a subtle order to keep in the back of your mind. Just beautiful!

To me as a passionate EBMer CD 2 don't hide too many surprises though I appreciate a lot that Hell MIXES some fine stuff since many DJs in this genre simply lack of any talent in creating a real flow. Nonetheless this CD is not at all reaching the top what the 1st one is doing in many ways...

I can't believe that nobody has made a comment about this CD yet! I've had it for about six months now and still listen to it all the time. If you're familiar with Tiga's DJ Kicks then you'll know what I mean. Not the same style, but of equal quality.

CD2 is my favorite because of the sheer quantity of serious tracks. The Juan Maclean's 'You Can't Have It Both Ways' is a fabulous electro track - one of the best I've heard, in fact. The DJ Kicks remix of Behind the Wheel by Playgroup is another blinder, and 'U Know How We Do' by Mount Sims is excellent too. The rest of the CD, and CD1, are sublime.

My favourite mix album without a doubt. Sorry about all the superlatives.
