"I had this cd a long, long time. It is still in my collection of top cds. This cd introduced me to edm very early, I later moved on to the trance genre, but these songs are unforgetable. If you enjoy listening to uplifting tracks and dont mind a bit of a mix up in your track selection, then this cd is for you. Speaks for itself when one song was a massive signle, another the theme to the fifa world cup, and another the theme song for a movie, all this on one cd. Despite what some people say, the other tracks on the cd are very enjoyable and offer something different without the constant repetition you will find today. Josephll "Josephll", all i have to say is that you are quite wrong with your facts, and before you review this learn about the producers so you dont mislead people, yes there is an s there, seeing as there is more then one producer. As a matter of fact, Dario G is not a DJ either, then again its more then one person - Dario G are actually three young men from the north of England and Wales. Paul Spencer, Scott Rosser, and Stephen Spencer. No harm intended, just wanted to get it clear. Overall Amazing cd, 5 from 5, incredible songs, none of which sound the same as the other (with the exception of the last track which blends them all together in a nice downtempo mix). 5/5, and I highly recomend people go buy this whether you like trance or classical or whatever, im sure you will grow to love this cd."

"Dario G, a production team from North England, craft highly amusing Dance pop that is at times trite due to repetativeness. Though there are some definate good moments on this album.
Sunchyme- A track that certainly lives up to its name while setting the pace for the entire album. A bright house gem built around a sample from The Dream Academy's "Life in A Northern Town"
Carnival De Paris- Quite perhaps the most unusual House song ever produced. Whoever heard of using bagpipes in a dance song? An uplifting charmer one might use to cover an international competition (oh wait it was).
Sunmachine- This song takes a stab at making David Bowie's "Memory of a Free Festival" from Space Oddity a bit more..um memorable and succeeds. Bowie liked the song so much he gave the band the original demo of the song to sample. Add to that a piano, organ and a flute(played by Bowie's producer no less) and you have a track that's not only memoorable but 50 times better than the original Bowie record.
Voices- Possibly the only redeeming quality about the Leonardo DiCaprio film The Beach. A beautiful voice over an even more beautiful melody.
Be My Friend- Filler but beautiful vocals.
Peaches- Enigma-esque downtempo melody combined with a tech-house rythem.
Malaway- Tech house with a tribal chant. Amusing but not memorable.
Revolution- A protest House song. Hmmm
Voices- A stipped down version of the track.
End of the Beginning- The album comes to a close with an early version of Sunmachine. The David Bowie album version of the sample being played over an ambient Sunchyme. A bit long but a nice way to end things.
Overall, this album proves that the boys of Dario G are have an eve for producing, but not every song is memorable."
