Music collector since 1984, started early at age 13... collected vinyl until the early 90’s when vinyl pretty much disappeared from the
mainstream stores.
Collecting CD’s since 1990 until present date.

Started tracking down some old records that were not available where and when I grew up.

Enjoy synthpop, electronica, trance, progressive and chill out.

I have had this CDR in my collection for 17 years now, having ordered it from Lost Language, where they would send burnt to order CDR's of their new releases. The gem here is the Original Mix, and the Leama & Moor mix.

34.99 dollars on the official site... price gougers asking for 190 dollars for one of these 1980 limited edition copies... absurd.

This is an amazing release.. Have had it for some years now in digital format in Spotify and Tidal, and now found a perfect copy here. Have enjoyed this perspective of chill and classical combined.

This is an impressive collection from Matt, his many guises and collaborations... this man has created the early sounds of some of the most seminal songs in Trance in the late 90's and early 00's.. a master at work.

YES, ELECTRIC, SUPER, HOTSPOT! these 4 albums are the revival of the Pet Shop Boys after a period of some darkness, that stated in 2001, and continued through 2006 with Release and Fundamental. They are catchy, danceable, and listenable anywhere. Great ... See full review

Sounds like terrible EDM.. why on earth would A&B do this??? they had a great start back early 2000 creating magic, but this, this is absolute rubbish. Bernard and the gang must be so mad about this. We know Hookey is mega pissed about this redo... damn, ... See full review

An amazing piece of C R A P from the PSB.. So dissappointed in this 3rd single from their new album, Hotspot. I had high expectations for this album, hopefully this single is not the norm.

A Masterpiece, following the footsteps of Being Boring. An amazing track in 2019, sounding so 1980's.
posted a comment on Pet Shop Boys - Dreamland. 9 months ago
An Open Mind far excels over the title of the actual single. Personally do not like the performance or the voice of the singer from Years & Years.. but it does open up a new generation of listeners for the Boys.

Absolutely terrible!!! this is a good miss...
Why would they even consider doing this to the dance classics from this Era... is Hooky running out of cash?!

I first started listening to A&B back in 2004.. loved their early stuff, and listened steadily till about 2012... after that mainstream EDM had settled in, and all the great artists shifted to this mass produced noise called EDM...

They were very big and authentic, and obscure, not mainstream like Depeche Mode, who eventually ended up doing Music for the Masses, literally, everyone listened to them. As for Cetu Javu, it would only be heard at some very select night clubs in Mexico ... See full review

why even bother with a remix of this mega classic from the absolute golden age of Trance? thix mix is bland, boring, and just has no reason to exist.
posted a review of Moogwai - Viola. about 1 year ago
I am impressed, this two set of mixes, does a fair update to a timeless classic... It does not add of the gimmicky EDM trash that today floods the airwaves... A CD or vinyl release should be in order, it is deserved.

This record pressing company has a terrible reputation among vinyl enthusiasts.. Apparently they churn out very low quality pressings. Do a web search and find multiple reviews stating the lack of detail which such pressings are done.

I think this is the best of all the Engima records. As strong as the first two, and different, but still has a soul to it.

They do have some jewels in the remixes.. specially early on in their career, up to probably the 1993 era, with mixes by Jam & Spoon and Sasha (DJ Sasha).. after that, yes, they commissioned mixes from weird artists that utterly destroyed the original ... See full review

Your review is now 15 years old, and you may be right, but to today's standard, Blank & Jones are a fine act in electronic music. Miss those days, before it all turned to EDM crappola.

Pete Tong has been around for far many more years than todays crappy EDM purveyors of cacophony.. Tong has been handpicking great electronic music since the early 90's way before any millenials jumped on the EDM bandwagon ruining the scene.
