A lovely CD, melodic and warm. Several of the choices are two-chord compositions that sway from one chord to the other and back; there's a faintly lullabyish effect. 'Oldschool, baby' is the highlight for me, with Nena's gorgeous vocals pushed back in the mix and with just the right amount of delay. I rate this four rather than five stars because a) the middle section (especially around Villalobos' 'Easy Lee') is unengaging, and b) I generally prefer mix albums to include more tracks and to use shorter sections of each – here the tracks average around five minutes' playing time.

one of my favorite mix and the best of fabric series. It made me discover Richard Davis and Kompakt. Rendez vous with Superpitcher's "today" !

As other reviewers have mentioned, its not quite standard Michael Mayer fare, but it is a very welcome change of direction. The tech house tracks featured in this mix are melodic yet still genuine. If I could describe this mix in word, it would be 'musical'. It's more of a listening mix than a dance/club mix, and as a result, there are quite a few vocals. An outstanding Fabric mix that is well worth the listen ten years later.

I almost don't see the point in commenting on this cd, but I feel I should just to mention the fact that it features, both Superpitcher's 'Mushroom' and the amazing Jackson mix of M83. Any mix featuring these would undoubtably be golden but Michael Mayer's is for me not only the best Fabric mix ever but also my favourite mix album, a true work of perfectly balanced techno craftsmanship, it glides, it soars it undulates, it touches you in those special places you only touch yourself at night...and you will love it for it.

Not as minimal as you might expect from Kompakt head honcho and all-round ultra-now scene god Mayer. Both mixes of I Think About You, and Richard Davis' superlative Bring Me Closer, are chunky and lush, with the cleverness lurking in the background for those who wish to seek it out. In fact, the more stripped down tracks here are the ones that tend to fail - Villalobos' offering in particular is gimmicky and goes nowhere. Overall, though, a very satisfying mix, which might have been the best Fabric at the time or its release, although I feel subsequent offerings from Akufen and High Contrast have edged it out at this stage.

In my humble-esque opinion, the finest of all the Fabric compilations. Minimal yet rich, dark yet uplifting, sleazy yet classy. Check 'Easy Lee' and 'Run Into Flowers' for two pieces of sheer electronic genius. Also, a real trainspotter moment when Nina (of killion zillion selling '99 red baloons' fame) chips in with a great vocal performance on Mayer's mix of Westbam's 'Old Skool Baby'. A timeless mix album.

Easily the best fabric mix so far, when I first put this on I wa amazing and the style and grace of the mix, technically this won't blow you away, but that is not the point is it? MM has opened my ears to a lot of German labels that I had never heard of before. If you dislike the hegmony of commerical dance music, then you should buy this.
