    In my opinion the best release of the series, quality tracks, and they flow well together, so more of an album than a compilation. The only track I usually skip is "Analogical's Camillo"

      A friend was playing the Autocreation track in her car last week and I'm like, "What is this? Sounds so familiar."
      Oh. I'd bought the cd box set at a Disc-Go-Round in the mid 90s then later got the vinyl.
      So f*cking good. While I like all the volumes in the TEeX series, this compilation, the 'ambient' one is probably my favorite. Right up there with any incredible ambient comp.

        I miss the 90s this UK compilation is physical proof just how above par 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".

            Worth buying for the Richard H Kirk track alone. Absolutely awesome.

              overall the quality is high.

                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.
