DJ Antaro @ Spirit Zone Recordings have compiled this triple-compilation celebrating the first 100 Spirit Zone releases.

This was released back in August '01, and I think it deserves a review here. Not because it is a particular good comp, but simply because it's a retrospective look at the trance-history. Actually, this is the German counter-move to the Israeli compilation RETRO. Only, RETRO was A LOT better than this.

The 3 CDs are split into genres: CD1 is pure goa, CD2 is progressive minimal and CD3 is ambient chill-out. I don't wanna describe all the tracks as all of them are released (duh!?) but I will briefly write my highlights of each CD.

CD1 starts out with a couple of old tracks from '95 and I don't really dig them. Then an annoying Ololiuqui-track and a mediocre Etnica track. And then the 3 best tracks on CD1: Space Tribe, S.S.O. & S.U.N. Project. Oldies, but goodies. Nice!

CD2 starts with a forgettable Martian track, but then there's the amazing Spirallianz-track One Way Ltd. Very nice. I also like the SBK & Necton tracks.Also Zorba is nice. The Spacefish track is too boring at first for my taste, but slowly gets better. Sangeet's track is also good, though too heavy at times. Heavy is fine, if you do it in a sophisticated way like The Delta or Spirallianz. The only track I don't really like on CD2 is the last one by Fuenf D. Conclusion: CD2 is quite good, but only has one killer: One Way Ltd.

Finally, there's the ambient/downbeat CD. There's 2 really good tracks on CD3: Etnica : Funkadelia and Alien Mutation : I Had A Hallucination .. The Ololiuqui track is pretty good too. The rest are too boring..

I like the idea of a label celebrating their 100th release, but I don't really agree on all the tracks that DJ Antaro have selected here. Actually, the good tracks on this comp could fit on one CD instead of 3.

Good things: Nice cover-notes with pix and info on most of the artist featured on this comp. Bad things: There are only 5 killers on this CD, the rest is forgettable. Also, the selection of tracks seem a bit random at times. If you really love Spirit Zone, but haven't got much of their back-catalogue then get this - if not, don't! Rating 6/10
