The majority of this compilation features Deepsky tracks most have already heard, the real reason to pick this compilation up is "3 Mile Highland" an epic yet fairly unknown Trance track by Trinity Sight that was only featured on a couple of compilations released by Fragrant in the US. This is the only compilation that features the original version unmixed. I have never experienced another Trance track like this one, it's not that I think it's one of the best Trance tracks ever, it's that I think it's by far one of the most unique Trance tracks ever made and I still listen to it today. I'm not normally one to do an in-depth review for just one track, but for this one I am.

3 Mile Highland doesn't follow the typical conventional formula most Trance tracks used in the late 90's, it's divided into unique parts. The beginning starts with what sounds like a trip into deep space with echoing dialog about the "great work of art of the 21st century" heard in the distance. The actual music begins with an oriental vibe, some clanging cymbals and introduces a pitched up sample from Tori Amos ("Precious Things") that works quite well over the pulsating beats and underlying melody. This combination of vocal and melody has a sense of urgency with an emotional effect and is really quite remarkable. The vocal sample builds as the beats start to fire at a rapid pace and then everything comes to an explosive climax that shifts to the middle portion of the track at about the 6 minute mark. A sweeping breakdown includes some windy sounds, samples of dialog and then the track transforms into this acid squelching monster that stays in line with the original melody and keeps the crashing cymbals present also, it's pretty damn cool, and unlike any other Trance track I've listened to. The ending fades everything out into the ambience around the main melody that sounds like something from an epic film score and is really quite perfect as it winds down the intense rush that came before it.

The rest of the compilation is good, but in comparison nothing matches 3 Mile Highland, this is cinematic Trance at its very best.

There is the sense of the tunes being samey and purposely different ones sound different. 3 mile highland is my pick. Deepsky has better releases and remixes out there. I haven't tracked them down, but it's beacuse they follow a trance formula and are very close to the commercialism trap.
