"Grid is unique...their style never stays the same they are ambient/jazz/house/techno/trance/country/euro. Their latest album is not a disappoint. This album is primarily a greatest hits album with an excellent choice of tracks.The first track "Flotation" is a trancy/techno style track that mellows you out, great to listen and dance to with a girlfriend in the dark with a candle lit. The second track "Crystal Clear" also more of a trancy style with a rhythmic beat..makes you feel relaxed. The album shifts gears with "Boom" going with a strong beat in the backgroud. Gear 4..."Figure of 8"...high speed...high pumping...loud...DANCE !!! Gear 5..."Roller Coaster" one of their famous songs form the album Evolver, this song is more of a up down rollercoaster sound experience with slow points to real high points!! The coaster heads towards the south with the track "Texas Cowboys" with techno/country ?? Then the track head towards the deep south with a track titled "Swap Thing"...bango playing with fast beats...very intresting. The coaster rebound to a remix of "Crystal Clear" which adds a house twist to this trancey track. The next track is a slower remix of "Figure of 8". "Diablo" the next track is my personal favourite....spanish guitars, high bass, house beat...very good middle song in a party to liven the people up!!! Finally the joyride ends with a true ambient track a remix of "Roller Coaster"...very slow, sad, gloomy end track though a very good ending for this roller coaster of a ride album.So few albums are really done this good...I mean you have your radio friendly/ MTV bands that has maybe one or two good songs and the rest makes you want to think why did I even buy their album. But Grid wil not disappoint you people.In conclusion, if you have never heard of Grid...I highly recommend this album...you will not be dissapointed. Enjoy!!!"
