You know, this mix, while being a bit of a classic, has some huge problems.

First, the actual mixing by Choci is pretty shocking. It seems like he's trying to get as many tracks in as possible without really considering whether he's playing the best parts of each. Very awkward phrasing to boot.

The second problem is the track "Rainbow Islands", which is cheezier than fromage au gratin. I know that Reactivate 10 also had that happy piano tune, which served as a similar downer in an otherwise incredible mix, but "Rainbow Islands" is fifty times worse.

Aside from those problems, the track selection is a very interesting blend of German and UK Acid/Techno/Trance. There are some massive tunes on here.

My recommendation is to buy the double unmixed CD, which has a pile of great tracks in high quality for your own mixing use. Then you can slap them together in Ableton or something and pretend like Choci never created this.
