I received a recommendation to try out this series from someone on discogs, who knew that I was interested in trance music. I had already heard and loved the Gatecrasher series, well, some releases anyway like 'Wet' and especially 'Discotech'. I don't know what it is, but I just can't find a trance compilation that has blown me away, despite being a huge fan. Well, that was until last week when I tried out 'The Best Trance Anthems... Ever!' mixed by John Fleming. That did blow me away, particularly it's second disc which contained an entire list of awesome hits, none of which were a filler. Moving back to this series, I tried this out and spent a good few hours listening to it (both discs) and just thought it was average. The issue here are that while there ARE some amazing hits included in both CD's, they both have the same issue. The second half of both CD's went straight downhill in my opinion, tapping into forgettable trance anthems. What about the mixing? It is actually among the best I've ever heard for a trance series.

The first CD starts off on such a high note that is impossible to fault anything really. We have Robert Miles' Children which most compilations include, followed by the unique Out Of The Blue by System F, DJ Sakin & Friends, Storm, Underworld's brilliant Dark & Long which is one of my favourites, Age Of Love, Lucid's I Can't Help Myself (though I HATED the mixing into that song with Lucid's lyrics), Johnny Shaker's Pearl River, Slacker's Your Face which is a masterpiece heading right up to Kamaya Painters's Endless Wave (Albion Mix). After this it goes downhill... Until Blank & Jones' Cream and the ever wonderful Happiness Happening by Lost Witness. With those great inclusions, the CD does extremely well don't get me wrong. However, some of the mixing is questionable, and tracks 14, 15 and 16 are bland at best. I did enjoy the CD and would still listen to it again, but it could have been better.

The second one, like the first CD started on a high note. Mansun's Wide Open Space is a very enjoyable tune, and then we have Chicane's Offshore which is repetitive enough to be added here so I would gladly skip this, Faithless' Salva Mea came next which I love after hearing it on 'In The Mix 98', followed by a spectacular remix of Energy 52's Cafe Del Mar (Three 'n' One Mix), Paul Van Dyke's For An Angel, Art Of Trance's Madagascar, Moonman's Don't Be Afraif (which I could not find anywhere else), Travel's Bulgarian (Signum Remix), Pulp Victim's The World '99 (Moonman Remix) which I've always enjoyed, and then Papua New Guinea's Future Sound Of London. The remaining tracks were either overused in every single trance compilation out there, or just forgettable. I really did go into this one with an open mind, after hearing the quality of the first disc but was left feeling underwhelmed due to some bad inclusions. It is not quite as good as the first CD, but it is worth a listen.

In conclusion, I would say that if you're looking for an awesome selection of trance from 98-2000, try either Gatecrasher Wet or Disco-Tech, ATB's Clubber's Guide to Trance or The Best Trance Anthems...Ever!. Honestly, this is only my opinion and many of the other reviewers who have posted here love it, so you might as well but it wasn't as great as I hoped it would be. The mixing is actually very good for the most part, but some of the included hits could have been replaced by better ones.

This comp brings back some good memories. It was one of the first mix comps I bought and help to change my musical tastes forever. While I don't listen to trance like I use to I still like to go back and give it a listen every once and a while, always puts a smile on my face.

I love this compilation, the first in the series this was in my early days of being introduced to Ferry Corsten, but there is one thing i dont like about the cd. I would give it so much more credit if it didn't have Storm - Storm on it, when he mixes 'Storm - Storm' into 'Underworld - Dark & Long (Dark Train)', it just doesnt seem right... it doesnt flow too well.
