I wasn't sure what to expect from the Tilt lads after their exploration into just about every dark and dingy subgenre of electronica. Starting with the immortal 'The World Doesn't Know' which still sounds fresh, this cd is packed with hits, underground stompers, breaks and brilliant downtempo. However i wanted to point out the lost gem in my opinion 'Crescendo'. Thsi track blew me away when i first heard it, and I play it at the end of my sets all the time - so moody and deep!. I would buy the cd just for the first and last tracks alone. The other tracks are good too, with classics like 'twelve', 'explorer' and 'new day'.

8/10

Although half of the real floor stompers on this album (World doesn't know, Twelve) are not knew, it is well worth having in the ol' collection. What I think is the real virtue of the recording is the inside look at how much talent this trio are actually wielding; the vocal tracks, with acoustic guitar even, are a real treat... though they are really not of much use to DJ's in their current form (I'm hoping for some great remixes). All in all this album does not disappoint--buy it!!

Tilt's debut artist album functions more as a collection of individual tracks, than as a cohesive album. And while this isn't necessarily a bad thing, somehow you expected more from Tilt, the trance masters that gave us perennial classics like "I Dream" ten years ago. Known for their deep progressive trance/house hits, here Tilt explores (no pun intended) different genres including breaks, ambient, and vocal pop. Results are mixed. Where "Venus In Transit" succeeds in it's subtle beauty, "New Day" might disappoint with it's syrupy sweet vocal pop. The few more-or-less traditional trance/house songs included here are phenomenal. Last year's hypnotically gorgeous "The World Doesn't Know" is used as the opener (slightly edited for the album release), and so is the thunderous "Twelve". These two tracks alone are worth the price of the album alone (if you don't have them already of course). But all of these different styled tracks mixed together doesn't make for a cohesive album listening experience. Listen to the first two tracks, and then the last two tracks, and you'll swear your listening to two different artists. This really isn't that big of a deal considering most people don't listen to albums beginning to end every time anyway (hardcore electronic music fans aside of course), the average quality of the majority of the tracks here only equates to roughly slightly better than mediocre. Overall, not bad music, but not especially great either.
