Jerry is Magical!

"Whenever I hear this disc it takes me right into the dark sweaty confines of Sunday nights at Spundae (SF) where I spent many a evening listening to Jerry "break" these same tracks appearing on this album. From the moment the deep funky bassline of Deluxe's opening track "Nucleus" hits, you are immediately locked in a groove that will take you on a magical ride through the peaks and valleys of trance music. The ride starts fast and furious through the first few tracks. Majestic's "Western Approaches" with its rolling bassline is a tight track that creates a simplistic kind of energy. Jerry sticks with this pace for awhile then, with the introduction of Ispirazoine's "Psalm" the mood gets a bit darker. This track is so aggressive and evil it regularly brings a chill up my spine. Once the vocal excerpt of Maya Angelou's "The Rock Cries Out.." ends, the ride contuinues into tracks like Binary Finary's "1998" which kicks with such furious energy it's mind blowing! Jerry closes out the set with Paul Van Dyke's "Words" a classic track that goes over so well in the morning hours which Jerry utilizes perfect on this disc to leave you walking away with a smile on your face. Jerry Bonham is well respected in DJ circles and is a true innovater of progressive trance in the U.S. This disc showcases his talents and proves he is a true digital wizard."

"One of the top albums in my collection. Still consistently getting a lot play time when I'm going out, having people over, etc. The first three tracks are probably the best transitions I've ever heard. A must-have in your collection, or for anyone curious about trance..."

"Definitely, this is a very neat collection, with flowless mixing and uplifting tunes; however it does sound way too familiar because the tracks are all time classics heard many times in clubs and raves. Influence of Renaissance (Dave Seaman, Ian Ossia & others) is quite apparent too. Must-have for any 1015 folsom fans :=)"
