Most cheesy Oakenfold record in my opinion, unlike the others.

In spite of some reservations, I love this record! A cover of the Stevie Nicks classic that has more recently been re-worked by Deep Dish, this was the first time I actually heard this song in any form. As a result the power of the song itself and the mostly excellent mixes overshadowed the shortcomings in the vocal performance, which while not bad, does not match Stevie's. In particular some "diva" wailing sounds thin and strained.

Of the mixes, Oakenfold's Perfecto Mix is a trademark trancey pumper with a bloopy synth riff driving it along, while BT's mix (the best on this package and one of my favourite's of all his work) adds his trademark swirls and twiddles, plus a few extra minutes to make a more epic mix, his particular trademark. The Jeep Mix is a more downtempo diversion, and the Tin Tin Out mix is the only disappointment - a tacky nu-NRG affair which sounded pretty ropey at the time and now feels terribly dated.
