A much better compilation than it seems to be thought of; although some tracks appear elsewhere ("Dark Fader" seemed to be licensed to all sorts of compilations! "Snapping Fuss" re-appears as a Wagon Christ release) the ones that are unique to it are very good indeed. Two fantastic highlights really make this comp: T Power is at the top of the game with "Tama", a deep and contemplative foray into atmospherics, and Bedouin Ascent's "Cat Can Blow!" is so uniquely rhythm-heavy it is stunning. Many of the lesser known acts on here turn out pretty good tracks as well, but these two alone are well worth it.

I tend to look back on genres after they went bad like spoilt milk, and drum-n-bass is certainly no exception. The time just flies by so quickly you just don't know what hit you after it already crashed to the ground. In the earliest days of drum-n-bass, innovation was everywhere and creativity was at the peak of perfection. This compilation is a great example. Each track is different and many styles combine to form an excellent representation of the genre of drum-n-bass music. Later in 1997 I personally started noticing that drum-n-bass was going through exactly what techno went through a couple of years earlier - a stasis. That is - it was getting stale. Repetition and blandness were pervading the genre. But this collection features the better time in drum-n-bass, when new things were still happening. These tracks are all excellent, none of them bore me to death and a few really move me. You must check this out to get an idea of real musical innovation when electronic music was still pretty darn exciting. See what you think...
