Having known Junkie XL through his two first OUTSTANDING albums "Saturday Teenage Kick" and "Big Sounds Of The Drags", which respectively came out in 1997 and 1999, I have to say that "Radio JXL" is a rather good album, in spite of having been disappointed at the first listening.
This third opus produced by Tom Holkenborg under the "Junkie XL" moniker marks the transition between the late 90's big beat style and modern easy-listening dance music which can be found in the following albums "Today", "Booming Back At You" and with smaller dose in "Synthesized".
By this way, we have an album which is more accessible than the previous ones, although it still has a bit power from Junkie's earlier work, like for example in "Nudge", which is my personal favorite track.
There are two CDs on this album. The first one is called "3PM" and consists of those dance music tracks with many guest singers such as Saffron from Republica, Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode, Chuck D from Public Enemy and Anouk with her beautiful voice in "Between These Walls". And the second one is called "3AM" and is mostly composed of progressive house tracks which will be prefered by the fans of Junkie's two first CDs instead of the "3PM" one, in my opinion.
The mastermind of the soundtrack of "Mad Max: Fury Road" is also responsible for "Radio JXL: A Broadcast From The Computer Hell Cabin". Who would have believed that ?
As far as I'm concerned, I think it's the last acceptable album of Junkie XL. Nevertheless I won't recommend it because the wild dynamism, that Prodigy style which used to characterize STK and BSOTD has disappeared... forever.

Out of comparing this album with the other ones that JXL has made, this is such a great work! It's a perfect album to put on play as background music when you are working on anything in your computer.

The different music genres and the exquisite sound of every mixed track makes everything a fine work which worth it all; and when you notice the unique composition that JXL brings, surrounded by a perfectly leveled arrangement, you think: "this actually has content and dedication in it!".

So, be open minded (musically) and enjoy this album as the whole universe that it is by itself.

Boring album. JXL released two great albums (Saturday Teenage Kick and Big Sounds Of Drags), but this album was huge disappoinment to me. Too many guest vocals ruined this album. Come on Tommy... get Rudeboy back to this project and write kicks ass tunes with nasty beats which you're famous for.

On the other hand, JXL released same time MP3 album called "7AM" and that is a brilliant record. Get that instead of this record.

JXL's third release, it's more expensive than the first two. It's two discs. Maybe that's why. This album sees Rude Boy getting ditched in favour of a slew of guest artists. I must say, it's a nice change. The songs don't rely as heavily on JXL's beats and creative organizations as it does letting the guests shine. The typical housey thump-thump-thump is very present in a lot of songs, but it's nicely worked in with the rest of the arrangements. And that's only the first disc! The second is purely instrumental, except for two remixes of songs from the first one. The 12 mintue remix of Beauty Never Fades gets tiring, but everything else is good. Breezer, Nudge and Red are the three tracks that shine for me, but everything else is very good too. Well done, JXL. Very well done indeed. 9/10 (Disc 1), 7/10 (Disc 2)

If only words could describe how good this album is!.. It sounds like a million dollars!!! And you have to pay only $5 for it! It's a bargain of the century! I wish it was released on CD.

This album consists of tracks that didn't make it to the officially released "Radio JXL" album.
<b>Reload (7AM Remix)</b> - A very chilled remix of the track, very melodic. "Into your mind", Dave Gahan sings. That's exactly what this track does - it goes into your mind and stays there. An excellent track to start the downtempo album.
<b>Talk Tonight</b> - This one's for the fans of Groove Armada, Morcheeba and Zero 7 - it's a great trip-hop track with a great melody! Very catchy.
<b>Streets</b> - My favourite track from 7AM Ambient. I just can't describe how beautiful the track is... It's just like love - you must feel it to know how good it is.
<b>Twilight</b> - A very dark ambient jungle-esque track. Probably, the fastest track on the 7AM Ambient album.
<b>Rivers</b> - It's is actually the remix of the old Junkie XL track "Next Plateau" - it has the same beats and bits. But the vocals by Shelley Harland make this song three times better.
<b>Tommy Dub</b> - I really love this one. I didn't know Junkie XL can produce dub tracks, but this one has proved that Tom Holkenborg knows how to produce ANY style of music and that his production skills are unbelievably great.
<b>Sphere</b> - Very deep and dark ambient track. With its weird sounds, it will take you to great distances the man has never seen before.
<b>All I Want</b> - Beautiful downtempo intermezzo.
<b>Mogwai</b> - It's a house track, very chilled house though. It reminds me of some Sasha tracks, really. But I really love the Paul Malone vocals here.

<b>Tennis</b> - It is the track from the japanese edition of "Radio JXL". Shame it wasn't released on UK 2CDs set. It'd be the best track on 3PM. My second favourite track off 7AM Dance.
<b>Electro</b> - This one doesn't do much for me... It's a good house track, but nothing special.
<b>Angels</b> - I find Gary Numan's voice a bit annoying, but this version of "Angels" is actually better than the version on 3PM. It sounds less radio-friendly.
<b>Techno Ibiza</b> - Woohoo!!! This track is da ace, man! It's the best house track I've heard in a while. I hope it will be released on vinyl, it's the guaranteed dancefloor killer! My favourite track off 7AM Dance. Extremely catchy track!
<b>Drubba Drub</b> - Great continuation for "Techno Ibiza". But this track is far less catchy.
<b>Destiny</b> - Can't really say anything about this track, but the vocals in the middle of it are really good!
<b>Egypt</b> - I love this one! It's a very positive dance track, it has cool vocals, dunno whether this is egyptian language though... It's a good example of how vocals can be the most important part of the track.
<b>Heat</b> - Some time ago, there were rumours about "Red/Heat" 12", but it was never released. "Red" is available on 3AM and Heat is now available here, on 7AM Dance. It's a very deep track. Don't know why Tom has decided not to release it on vinyl. It's really good.
<b>Groovy</b> - The track is exactly what the title says - GROOVEE! The track contains the piano sample, which I really like.
<b>See The Light?</b> - In the beginning, there's nothing really exciting about this track, but in the end it becomes so beautiful... I love the melody!

Overall, it's an <b>EXTREMELY AMAZING</b> album. I think it's even better than 3AM/3PM. I recommend it to everyone!
