Its well above-average for an electronic artist album. It must be noted that Sasha got help (and quite a bit of it) on this one, and it is very likely Charlie May did most of the work. Slightly overrated, and there are a couple of filler tracks on this release. In any case, if you like ambient house then this is an essential album to have.

Immortal is an awkward track that ruins the flow of the album. Stylistically it's sticks out against everything, and overall just isn't that great of a track anyway. But everything else is perfect.

Sasha, rather than one guy, is more a collective effort along the lines of The Orb or UNKLE. Its not to say Coe isn't a good producer; it's just he does do his best work with other people, like Charlie May.

Coe was aiming for an album that matched the Wow factor of Leftfield's Leftism. The 2 are completely different animals, Leftism being dub influenced and having vocals, while Airdrawn is pure instrumental prog. But yeah, Sasha & Friends created a classic.

I mean this is a good way, but Sasha's Airdrawn and Expander EP remind me a lot of Vangelis or Tangerine Dream.

I'm trying to bust myths that are placed on discogs-dot-com. So here's my second myth busted...

It is untrue that the album only plays on regular cd players and has security features. However, I got my copy the day it was released, so it could be possible that early prints weren't copy protected.

I've transfered tracks onto my computer and made copies. The cd I have was purchased at a ligitmate store and is a true Kenetic version of the album. On the linernotes it has the same catalogue number as this listing, and the UPC code on the back insert has the catalogue number followed by a 7.

A great album, just press skip right as Immortal beings to start up; or make a cd-r copy with everything but it.

This is my favourite house CD of all time. It's so varied, and includes some fabulous breakbeats and ambience. The track "Magnetic North" remains one of my favourite tracks to play for friends or relax to.
