One of my favorite Mix CDs ever, the selection of tracks was amazing back in the day and still is.. it is very varied and it feels like if Oakenfold was playing to himself selecting his favorite tracks no matter what, now the thing with the mix is I don't know if Oakenfold was actually enjoying himself and putting track after track without caring about the mix, if he was in a hurry, or even if he was high (which is very likely given the date this was mixed) whatever the reason this is mixed poorly, there are tracks that are mixed even with the beats inversed.. its crazy! but I love it because in this mix the thing that comes first is the selection of music instead of the mixing technique and it excels at it.

One of the better GU series releases (though to me the best is Lames LaVelle in Barcelona) in the series, it stands as one of the best mixes that Paul Oakenfold has put out. A near perfect blend of tunes, it still retains it's great vibe and is a mix that can still stand the test of time.

While Perfecto: Fluoro may be his masterpiece, you can still listen to GU 002 (Or 007 depending on your copy) to chill and spend a great summer day doing some sightseeing, or put it on your sound-system and have a great "back to mine" style time with your best mates. It's also a great example of Oakie when he was at the height of his powers.

For fan-boys or collectors, this limited 002 edition is a sort of collector's item, fueled by the fact that Global Underground has disavowed the 002 collection, preferring to use their true release order worldwide -- the label has even gone so far as to proclaim "There is no GU 002" on it's website. This is also why some copies of John Digweed's GU: Sydney collection are of a different number as well.

All in all, a great set that I highly encourage people to listen to--you won't be let down by this one.

Best Global Underground release in my opinion. Furthermore the best Oakie mix so far. In comparison to most of his common stuff, where he keeps up the BPI, this focuses on mid-tempo tunes full of atmosphere. Paul combines brilliantly different styles, such as Deep House ("Jamie Myers - Rescue me"), Trance ("Greece 2000") and Breakbeats. My fav tune is "Summersault" by Taste Experience, a typical Ibiza-style chiller.
