I miss the 90s this UK compilation is physical proof jus how good the music was! Not really a bad track on here tho a few sound dated but hey doesnt all music have that poorly maligned stigma. You get the cream of ambient and IDM here Speedy J, Eat Static, Richard Kirk, Autocreation(highly underrated project I suggest everyone check out).

Is the version of Ambush - Sun unique to this release?

I've heard the full album version (The Ambush) and it doesn't have the bassline.

I can't find this 9 minute version on any other Ambush release, even though Oliver himself calls it the "Maxi Version".

Of course there's a bit of cheese here; it was the 90s.
But overall the quality is high. More than a few timeless ambient /techno gems to be found on this compilation. Every plate is justified with at least one great cut.
And, as always, TEEX offers the only instances of many tracks' appearances on vinyl. (Albeit sometimes noisy vinyl.)
I still love all of the Trance Europe Express compilations. I bought all the cds in the 90s and then got the vinyls when I was like, "Fuck cds."
The curation was top-notch, far from the mainstream, and even ahead of its time, especially as the series progressed. Tracks got weirder. Which, in this case, was a GOOD thing.
And the included booklets? BONUS!
A few years ago every volume was practically worthless and could be snatched up for less than $20. But as heads come back--perhaps initially for nostalgic reasons--they're going to discover some timeless tracks. Prices will continue to go up slowly.

this is my favorite "trance" compilation of all time. i say "trance" because as said above, there is so much more here that you would not expect on a trance release. from the slow, spacey intro of Microglobe's "Trust" to the dense techno of Hardfloor's "Reverberate Opinion" to the ambient, feel-good trance of Dave Angel's "Life's Little Pleasures"... this set has it all. seriously one of the most influential compilations on me, with an incredible lineup of talent and - as usual for the TEX series - a standout packaging job. 5/5

This album is for anyone who likes the chill, ambient or downtempo genre. It contains some of the best music around and even many years after its release it is still in high demand.
I would recommend this album to just about anyone who likes their electronic music to be a little more intelligent than just plain 4-2-the-floor "house" music styles.

Personally i love listening to this while i am developing software ... it really brings about a calmness that is not frequently found in me :)

Best songs (in my opinion)
Microglobe - Trust
Richard H Kirk - Oneski
