This is a really fantastic unmixed compilation. There's a few hidden gems here that are unobtainable in digital format, CD single or otherwise. Exclusive highlights include Thrillseekers remix of 'Unity Theme' which as far as i know is vinyl only & Third Bass - 'System' - also vinyl only so nice to have these.

Some serious classic trance tracks on here, and mostly not your typical either, there's quite a few obscure yet anthemic tracks available nowhere else but here.

I grabbed this off ebay for £3 and it was worth every penny. The prices this goes for is so low, even for the one track you are after its worth tracking down, you never know you may enjoy a few more from this like me.

I bought this one on sale, and I think I understand why. Although it's worth your attention, it contains way too much filler tracks. It also has this distinctive 99-00's sound production which sounds nowadays sperficial and artificial. But if you happen to be just like me - always trying your best to hunt down any good things to enjoy - here's my little pick.

You will have two kind of good tracks here. The first ones are merely instrumental, often long, with antagonistic feelings and epic breaks or purposefully repetitive patterns. Dj Tatana's "More Than Words" is the perfect example of this. Third Bass' "System" and the quite deep and minimal Ballroom - "4AM (Marc O' Tool Mix)" while both being shorter also convey this. The John '00' Fleming track is also a powerful example of epic sense without having to fall into ridiculously long or uplifting breaks.

As for the other kinds, they use female voices in a good sense - to enhance the main melody such as El Dorado's "Be free" which reminds me of a blend between Niels van Gogh's "Pulvertum" and Future Prophecy's "My Way". One of the very best tracks is the incredibly long "Bullet In The Gun" by Planet Perfecto, using two very different breaks to make it grow higher and higher while remaining at full speed.

As for the rest, it is unfortunately stuck between good and bad without being totally bad - just "ok" tracks that fits with each other that you can forget as soon as they end. At least it succeeds in having no cheese in more than three hours, which is already a good quality point.

I've had part 2 for some 3 years and it still is one of my favourites, so I had high hopes for this first one.
Now I got one from eBay and listened it through - and ended up being somewhat disappointed.
It's not bad, just... well, not as good as the second one.
Here are the two reasons:
1) There are 'fillers' in here; in 'part 2' there are virtually no filler tracks at all
2) Too many of the tracks here can be found on other compilations; 'part 2' only has a couple tracks that ended up on other compilations such as the trancemasters, the world of trance and Gary D's compilations, to name a few (and MIXED compilations aside).

Still, this compilation clearly stands out and there are a few rarities that make this an essential purchase, for instance Rapid Eye - Alderaan (OH remix).
But 'part 2' is still better.
