Side F runs at 45rpm, sort of like a bonus for DJs after the main LP is finished.

Nice package. Go for the original mix if you want that Alice Deejay trance sound, go for the Peter Luts Remix if you want that Y2K epic trance sound, go for the Absolom Remix if you want that hard trance sound, and go for the Perfect Sphere remix if... See full review

Never really liked the Three 'n One Mix (which has been erroneously refered to as the Original Mix on some releases). The two B side remixes are good though, with the Universal State Of Mind having a more Eye-Q sound like the original, while the Solar... See full review

Yes it's a good value at the original asking price, it's just ridiculous to see people overstated it's value to such a ridiculous value.

Got very bored, and saw how much it would cost to recreate the contents of the box set on vinyl in the US without actually paying a scalper.

Pentamerous and 76:14 are being released separately for $30 each on Bleep. Both together equal $60 plus $20... See full review

Anyone able to decipher the codes strewn about the set? I'm sure there's something interesting hidden behind that alien language.

Edit: As said below, it's morse code. I was able to surmise from guessing that one inner sleeve side for Pentamerous and... See full review

Ways of Love is a very cool atmospheric trance track, very sparse and minimal, but with a driving 303 line that keeps it going. Use it as a set opener if you want to start things with a sound that's lowkey, but seems like it's going somewhere.

The synth that comes in about 6 minutes into the Slacker mix sounds a lot like the arp synth that's heard through "Vegetable Qat" from Sasha's Qat Collection album. Doesn't seem to be a direct sample, but sounds like a very similar sequencer line in a... See full review

Seems to be a 10" cut onto a 12" plate, with an extra long lead in groove.

Not sure why this was never released in America, could've probably made a splash by riding the hype wave that Daft Punk and Stardust made here in the two years previous. I'm guessing it was rights issues because of the samples.

It's supposed to play at the slow speed, at least according to the CD single. It does sound a lot better when sped up though.

What a weird series of pressings. Buy an overpriced US vinyl pressing of the US CD and get mediocre sound plus missing tracks. Save up some more and buy the brown vinyl, with potentially even worse sound, with all the tracks. Save up even more and... See full review

The version of the Tekara mix here is edited down to combine to two post-breakdown segments into one, probably to fit the 20 minute UK singles stipulation

The Koma & Bones remix is an excellent update of Raincry, giving it a beefier Breaks sound, while also not going over board, still retaining some of the atmospheric elements of the original
posted a comment on Global Communication - 76:14. 4 months ago
This album was recorded to DAT, there is no "analog" version. Also, this repress was not cut from the CD.

Edit: Thought I'd add that I think it's totally legit to criticize this release for not being sanctioned, but "cut from CD" isn't accurate.

The runouts lead me to believe that it's a repress from the stampers of the 2005 remaster, that and some tracks being reshuffled and unmixed means it wasn't cut from CD. Still scummy and unauthorized.

Fairly good early trance track, but I'm puzzled as to why it was called "The Age Of Love Suite" outside of cashing in on the Jam & Spoon remixes of The Age of Love from the same year

Agreed with the reviewer below. This may forgoe the "arctic chill out" theme of NE1 that was also somewhat present on NE2, but in return you get a mix with a lot of variety and highlights. I think the fact that some tracks on this date as far back as... See full review

Zanz Mix is a cool deep house track with off-kilter tribal perscussion, a blaring hoover synth, a sitar, and strange heavily processed diva vocals. Utterly bizarre, but it works.
posted a comment on Armin* - Blue Fear. 5 months ago
My guess is that at some point, the track was converted to an early MP3 or MP2 to save space on a hard drive, then when labels asked for the master, the got that file or a DAT copied from that file.
The intro doesn't have any information above 15kHz... See full review

A curious mix CD, has quite a varied sound, from deep house, to garage house, to tribal house, to progressive house. The mixing isn't especially outstanding, but it's not too distracting, and the track selection is quite nice.

Some great singles and some standout album cuts, but overall the album doesn't feel very cohesive and instead feels scattershot. A good, maybe even great album, but pales in comparison to Dub and Second Toughest.

A shameless ripoff of Robert Miles - Children, replacing the piano melody with elements of The X-Files Theme. Unbelievably cheesy and has aged awfully.
Avoid.

Yes it's a shameless ripoff, but at the same time this is a pretty fun remix, more in the vein of the funky house sounds of Basement Jaxx than the french touch of the original.

Rights issues, most likely. Too expensive and time consuming to track down the license owners of these tracks, then license them for a repress.
