I have a question about this particular version of Way Out West - Mindcircus. In the transition between the previous song, you can clearly hear a piano intro being played 30 seconds before the main melody starts and what appears to be the original version, yet it is not present in the original version on the Intensify album or singles. Was the piano-part used in the transition specifically made for this release to better blend the tracks?

On the face of it, this is just another double-disc prog excursion from the days when double-disc prog excursions were everywhere. You know the formula: first disc deep, second disc guns blazing, rarely more than 12 tunes to a CD, mixing computer-pristine. Dave Seaman did his fair share, jumping between Renaissance and Global Underground and following the formula to a tee. If you love millennial progressive you've probably completed the set by now, and if you don't, you probably aren't even reading this review.

Which is a shame, because buried within the standard formula is probably the most gorgeous CD1 of the entire prog era. Seaman, without warning, managed to go deeper, warmer and groovier here than ever before. Names like Ashley Beedle, Pete Heller, Francois K and Tom Middleton bring forth the funk and sultry groove and then Lovesky, Solid Sessions and Science Dept. deliver the dreamy, slow-burning melodies. In the process it hits that glorious sweet-spot between house and trance that progressive - at its best - is all about.

CD2 ups the tempo and returns to the par of solid but entirely predictable 2000-era prog trance that Dave was laying down at this time. Lord knows where he found the inspiration for CD1 from, but even if you turn your nose up at the P-word, head over to Youtube or Spotify and give it a go. It is an absolute favourite to play during the post-club return to earth, melt in your mouth dance music.
