The first record ... is really nice.
A wild mixture of different styles and artists.
Looks a little bit strange ... FSOL with 2 Unlimited, Fazer, Ramirez, WestBam, Marc Acardipane.... etc.
But you will get a full range of styles.

But than, the second.
What a shame.
It's only a promotion-deal for the guys behind Abfahrt Records and starts with one of the ugliest Interactiv-tracks ever.
Record 2 is cheap and cheaper.
Take a look behind the artists. All of them - except one - came from commercial labels and projects.

All in all ... that release contains a nice record and a free frisbee.

This compilation marks a new period for Techno (and you can compare it against the previous Techno Traxx releases).

From one hand the new thing called "trance" was starting to take form while Techno and Rave music, were spliting to Mininmal Techno and what I call 'Redicuoles Techno' (Which adobted by "F***ing candy ravers" with their toys, singing old children songs)

So we got the amazing - "Heute Ist Ein Guter Tag Zu Sterben" coming after silly "Wo Ist Pippi?", the headbanging - "El Ritmo Barbaro" followed by - "Phantom Of The Opera" which is a bad joke, and then FSOL with "Papua New Guinea" - what the hell is it doing here? The Classic "Stella" and another operatic bad joke which close this compilation.

This is not a bad compilation at all, but I think it could be much better if they put the Rave hits on one CD, and the quality anthem on the other.

ooh, and also remove the FSOL track from here. It's too "sacred" to be released on such a cheap commertial release like this one.
