This could possibly be one of the best EDM albums ever. It's such a shame that not many people have heard of Sonic Animation. They deserve to be well known. This is a flawless album packed tightly with the most awesome melodies ever. Nearly all their songs start off minimal then develop into stormers. Not only that, but they feel they have to use the most quality electronic drums which is what I really love about them.

The best track on the whole compilation is without a doubt "Orchid For The Afterworld... Or maybe". It begins with a brillant sounding synth that promises to build up to perfection. Then theres the reverbed lyric-less female vocals. the drums are good as well. Then there's the secret track "...Or Maybe" which, in my opinion, is better or equal to the first half of the track. I really can't decide.

All in all, this is a perfect album and is great to listen to over and over 'til you get sick of it.

Get this album if you love "Fatboy Slim - You've Come A Long Way Baby"

these guys have aided in the pioneering of the aussie live electronic music scene, i have seen them play many times now and every set has so much enthusaism and energy. The music is so fresh, exellent tunes!
