This is an excellent downtempo synthpop compilation from the beginning days of Kitsune Music. The whole album is love-based, featuring mostly slow songs or songs about love, songs that can make you just drift away into a nice happy daze. Kitsune Music got some great artists to really work the concept as well, as this compilation features Todd Edwards, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke, Romuald, Ernest Saint Laurent and Shakedown, amongst others. Also featured are Dominique Torti and Gonzales, two artists who have remixed Daft Punk, also contribute two tracks that are simply excellent.

As for the songs themselves, I find the best to be "Too Long" (Same as the Gonzales Version on Daft Club), "Thank You", "Love Lost", "Beautiful Love", and "A Strange Light In Your Eyes". The worst songs are probably "X", an electro track with vocals about an "X-Rated Girl", and "Attend I" they don't really mix in well with the concept of the album and they're not that special on their own either.

The biggest shame about this album though is the fact that the vinyl release didn't include Beautiful Love by Dominique Torti and A Strange Light In Your Eyes, because these tracks were exclusive to the compilation. Instead, the vinyl chose to release the songs that weren't the best, such as X, Attend I, and Lovegames, which were all on other releases to being with. Why take the stuff already on the singles and snub the stuff only on the CD release and nowhere else? It doesn't make much sense. But overall, this is a pretty great album. Don't hesitate to pick it up.

Also to note: The song Beautiful Love by Dominique Torti is known for being the theme to Da Maxx on Europe 2 Radio, which was hosted by Dominique Torti.
