CD Reviews

Showcases how ahead of their time Gong was - 5 stars
Herr Frog | Washington DC area | 10/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I were forced to either name one group as the official forerunner to rave, techno, trance, etc., or else listen to Paul Oakenfold inside a toyota truck with little tiny wheels, I would definitely say "It was Gong! It was Goooooonng!" But only if presented with that ultimatum. Really, with so many people contributing, I couldn't say it was any one group or performer exclusively. (Although Afrika Bambata claimed it to have been himself at his website ;) )

These remixes are fabulous. Some are really enhancing or interpreting the original songs, while a few are just really nice dance mixes that use "You" as fertile source material for their loops. I like them all, really. Very trancey, very psychedelic, very sensous. Just like the original was."
