This whole album is just great imo. CD1 is what you'd expect with good progressive house that builds as it goes and it's mixed perfectly. Now back in the day, I didn't care for CD1 as much as CD2 because I was more into progressive trance than house but now I like it as much if not a bit more than CD2.

CD2 is quintessential progressive trance from that time, if someone wanted to know what progressive trance from the late 90's and early 2000's sounded like this would be the CD to give them. It all builds toward the Bedrock trance smash Heaven Sent at the end and it flows perfect. One of the best prog mix comps from that time for sure and if you don't have it get it.

Great album for Digweed fans, smooth as silk and then some, this album contains an array of lush deep, prog house tunes synonymous with Digweed between 1996-99. Raff 'N' Freedy - Listen is a beautiful piece of french house and makes for a great set opener, the vocals against the bassline "got to listen" works a treat! The pob track is typical pob stuff, quite fast paced so sounds better pitched down, this track isn't quite as messed up as their other releases like waah & fly etc! Slacker - Flying was a big track for Sasha in 1996 so a cheeky addition to this comp, played by him @ The Twilo and on the Independence mix cd, f-f-f-f-fflying, you got me flying man...(R.I.P. Shem McCauley).
The other 2 "big" tracks for me are Dakota - swirl (Oakenfold use to open up with this in 1999) a little unknown one off the plastic fantastic label and Heller & Farley - the rising sun...if there is one track off the album which encapsulates that Digweed sound it has to be this one. The other tracks don't do anything for me im afraid ;(
This album mixes well with communicate, the northern exposure lp's and global underground albums which over the years will surely rise in value as people realise this was a magical era for dance music

This mix is good and will keep you entertained. It's a bit slow in its development on CD1, and Heaven Scent is the only track that totally stands out. If you have a mix CD from ten years ago, this is a good one to have. People always say that John Digweed is the technically most skilled DJ out there, and the transition between Heaven Scent and the preceding track supports this notion. I was just amazed out how well it was pulled off.
