While the mixing its self might not be top notch the overall album is still very good. The mix of d&b and trance is unique and fits well with this album. I didn't much care for this comp back in the day but now I really appreciate it for what it is, a pure Oakenfold mix.

This mix is pure and only an emotional journey for me. I played this on minidisc during my first trips to my holiday fling in Sheffield (UK) in 1997. The journeys on the train from Manchester Airport to Sheffield (and back) were just long enough to enjoy the most of it. If I listen to it now I still see myself sitting on that train waiting to see my first love. Unforgettable! The mix is spot on despite it varies from d&b to trance, it is just a gem!

the version that of ltj bukem music can't be sourced anywhere .. Nothing like the original..

Great to see so many discussion on this album! :) I Really love this d'n'b start of the album! Disc 2 is a solid trance/goa mix. Overall the mix has, indeed, a very nice 'live-feel' to it! Warmly recommended!

A very underrated Global Underground release. It's a very unique mix of a variety of genres from drum n bass to goa. People have criticized this release for its mixing, but I give him credit for the job he has done with an assortment of tunes with different melodic qualities...some tracks with breakbeats, some without, fast goa trance and then slow progressive tracks. However, it is Paul Oakenfold, so don't expect this one to be quite as smooth as Digweed's mixes. CD1 is the highlight. CD2 is not quite up to snuff, with fairly run of the mill goa trance.

When Oakey and Global Underground used to be at the top of their fields, how times change eh?

The mixing might be a little off at times, but the tunes are first class. Loads better than this his other Global Underground effort in my opinion, and probably his last great cd release.

I know so many people that would give anything in the world to experience the old Oakenfold again.

One of the few GU series which wasn't mixed with the help of pro-tools(theothers are the Nick Warren ones). This is certainly one of the most unique GUs and will confound anyone who thinks they know what an Oakenfold mix will sound like. Check it out.

Paul08 if you have been an Oakie fan for so long, how come you don't remember that this album was compiled when Oakie was flirting with Drum'n'Bass? This was a fair representation of his sets at the time, when he would regularly play an hour or so of Jazzy & melodic drum'n'bass cuts, before moving into his Goa stuff. It may not be the Oakenfold of now, but at the time this is exactly the stuff he was playing live. A must for any true follower of Oakenfold throughout his changing styles, this album really brings back the memories!

Oakenfold manages to cover a lot of area on this mix though it seems like he hardly makes an effort to mix the tracks together for the most part. The first disc is the really gem here, it starts out with some great jazzy d'n'b that really helps set the mood before pulling out some of the huge trance tunes that he is most well know for like "In the Lab" and "Innerspace". The second disk unfortunately is not able to live up to to first disk. The second disk is virtually all goa and lacks the sense of "movement" that Oakenfold is brings to the first disk. Will probably sound a little dated, but has too many strong points to ignore completely. 3 out of 5.

This CD hits a whole lot of crowds. It has Drum N Bass for those who like that and it mixes into trance for those who enjoy trance such as Bedrock. CD two in my opinion is one of his best mixes. He hits hard when he mixes in Cruzeman - Ohm Sessions into Bedrock. Its a pretty old song but it kicks and you can't get tired of it. I recommend the CD because of the multiple genre it has to offer.
