Title: Before the Storm
Label: Strictly Rhythm
Artist: Darude
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
best album of the year


This is by far one of the best albums of any genre I've heard all year. Mistakenly referred to as "trance" this collection of hard house has widespred appeal to non-house/trance listners, but maintains a degree of authenticity. All the original material is exellent, however the JS 16 remixes leave something to be desired. I felt like Darude produced 10 good tracks and then JS 16 told him that he needed more than 10 if he wanted to sell to foriegn markets so they filled the last few tracks with JS 16 remix ..., but the first 10 are so good that Darude deserves no less than 5 stars. Be sure to check out his website.

Title: Waltz for Koop
Label: Palm Pictures (Audio
Artist: Koop

Essential good groove


What a great sound Koop have conceived. I really can't believe this album. It could be a Jazz album of the 60's but still has that vibe which makes it essential listening for today. This has not left my CD player since I bought it. Earthy, organic and ethereal in places. This will be up there with the best of them at the end of the year and for some time after to.
Do yourself a favour and get it.

It's just beautiful...........


Simply breathtaking...Adagio for Strings is like the summary..no the actual description of sorrow. Like a man who tried his hardest at something but failed and just mournfully weeps at his lost.....

The best most fully realized Brian Jonestown ever!


What a masterpiece..Don't be fooled by the first few minutes..There's heavier things in store..Unbelievably he even betters the Zero tunes..Now they totally smoke..The I love you finale is the most beautiful music heard by these ears in a long while..An incredible talent stuck in a world of mediocrity
