Yeah Matt Darey is a UK trance legend but I totally agree that a lot of his productions have a "muddy", mid-range sound.

I don't know if he did this on purpose or if he has bat ears, but indeed you do need to crank the hi range on most of his '99 era stuff. See full review

Absolutely needs an official compilation. I wonder if Rubellan Remasters would do it?

Considering people are happily paying 300 Euros for this NM/NM, what would be your "decent price"?

Supply and demand. If you had a spare copy, would you sell it for 100 Euros?

These guys need to do Eurovision for Denmark. They'd surely be in with a great chance if they could do something similar to From Paris To Berlin!

Even a more melancholy song like Peace Inside would stand a chance, very ABBA sounding.

I don't think there will be more Berlin, sadly. Scott was ready to do Count Three & Pray but Geffen denied him.

The only other feasible title would be Information, which would be highly welcome in Rubellan Remastered form (the original LP mastering... See full review

Indeed. It's one of my favourites from OMD, but I guess in '88 they weren't too interested in their minimal synth beginnings (points finger at The Pacific Age).

While I can totally respect that the songwriting from OMD has always been strong, their... See full review

A sublime pairing, in a way only the French could do.

Combining the cute Synth-Pop of Elli & Jacno with the raw edge of Kas Product, they still retain a distinct uniqueness that continues 25 years after their inception.

Maybe you could say they're stuck... See full review

"The clear vinyl records stored in PVC sleeves will fog/discolour the vinyl, producing a slight haze only visible in the lead in and deadwax."

Pretty much every vinyl I've seen with PVC burn has the fogging effect across the record. The PVC does not... See full review

For me it's all about HH's Convex remix. Very classy as always from this superb producer.

I've never been a fan of the Signum remix, it's rather light and cheesy in my eyes. Reminds me of Kevin & Perry, that kind of EBEEFA trance that really hasn't... See full review

Is there any reason why the downloads on Bandcamp are so expensive?

I'd be wary of paying $20 for a CD, never mind files!

Well spotted mate. The track you're thinking of is Union Jack ‎– Two Full Moons And A Trout.

It's not a sample but the same gothic pads are used.

Sad then that they probably made less than SEK5,000 from this release.

It was hardly a worldwide smash, let alone a cash grab. Maybe, just maybe, they wanted to make a track fitting of the times?

After all, Human Evolution went on to be rather more popular... See full review

Obviously Gary was influenced by the likes of Ultravox but be fair, he was on Top Of The Pops before John had even released Underpass.

I think that John was more influenced by Numan than vice versa.

It's funny you say that, as I prefer Ultravox after John left and I prefer John after he left Ultravox.

Win-win in my opinion for both acts.

Peter really needs to release the Gelg material (from Look Around You). Luckily you can rip a lot of it from the Look Around You (series 1) DVD as there's an option to play the show without narration, but it's edited (obviously).

Such a quality soundtrack. See full review

I bought the mp3 files of this album on iTunes a few years ago and it was pretty sketchy, sounded like a bad CD rip in parts (that "fluttering" sound you hear when a CD is damaged).
