A somewhat weird compilation: The three first tracks are tracks that most trance music listeners should be familiar with. While the remaining tracks are very obscure tracks that where probably made by one or two people under different names. If you're wondering about the Dream Mix of "Insomnia" Predictably, it's a typo on the tracklisting as this is the Original Version that appears in a gazillon compilations. Skipping the first three tracks, which are nice classics that most trance listeners know about let's go to the more interesting stuff: I warn you, most of the obscure tracks are pretty amateur tracks that aren't anything special as you would expect from most rare recordings. Since most of the tracks sound pretty generic, it's a bit hard to describe them all with details: "Sunk City" sounds generic and get's pretty chessy when the flute sample appears. "Flouting Plasma" is a another generic trance recording and tries to be uplifting but ends up being too generic and a bit too chessy for my taste. "Acid S.E.X" is perhaps the worst track in this compilation. Hmm, I wonder will this track sound like (Read the title.) Play a generic acid bassline sample and go rave. Pretty unimpressive as acid trance goes by. "R.E.M Phase" is one of the few tracks I liked. It gets pretty inconsistent as the track progresses: Trancey intro and some raw acid later in the track. Perhaps this is why I like this track, it's lack of consistency. "Monumentum" has a pleasant intro somewhat ruined by the generic acid bassline sound. A bit better than the average acid trance recording though. "Who's In Da House" is a pretty generic rave track, nothing to say about it. Oh Yeah: Boring. "Oceandrive" is a decent downtempo track that has nothing to do with most of the tracks. If you like downtempo, you might like this track. "Paragliding" is a nice, hypnotic housey trance recording. Sounds better than most of the other tracks. "Point Break" is my pick of all the obscure tracks in this compilation: A pretty good trance-house track, with a nice deep house intro. "Stoned Holiday" is a pretty generic and chessy track just like most of the obscure tracks in this compliation. Lastly, "Virtual Conciousness" is probably the least related track when it comes to style. A simple, spacey breakbeat tune. Nice tune by the way and I'm glad it isn't another generic acid trance tune.

The title has little to do with this compilation as there are quite a few acid / rave tunes which aren't "Dreamy" as the title suggests. and less related is a quote found on the spine of the cover: "Dream House For The Future" This compilation should have had more tracks like "Point Break" which match the title description better instead of pure acid like "Acid S.E.X".

Despite that exactly zero copies of this compilation have been sold so far at Discogs. You can find many copies for sale on dirt cheap if you interested in any of the obscure tracks:

I payed 3 Euros for my copy. Not bad for the mediocre content.
