"Alright, I admit it, I just don't understand the attraction the general public has to Paul Oakenfold. Everything I've heard by him shows no particular skill in mixing, and perhaps the biggest reason for his publicity is that he plays the trippy type of tunes that appeal to teenagers, many of whom go to raves more for the social or chemical scene than for the music.His LIVE IN OSLO release in the Global Underground series is a perfect example of this. His set works more like a mix tape, tracks thrown in randomly, than like a true DJ's set, which should consist of a warmup and than a series of shifts designed to give the listener a voyage-type feel. And the mixing is awful. As one reviewer ... pointed out, the songs are only mixed through a couple of bars. That's a problem. On Dave Seaman's CAPE TOWN Global Underground retrospective, a few notes of "The Baguio Track" are mixed into Planisphere's "So Many Ways" for several minutes, so that the coming track is like a coming stormfront. Oakenfold's LIVE IN OSLO, however, has more the feel of a DJ saying, "Ok, this track bores me, let me just throw the cross-fader all the way over now."If you want to hear a real DJ doing a real set, which involves organizing a tracklisting carefully and mixing impeccably, try Sasha's IBIZA retrospective or John Digweed's HONG KONG. Leave Oakenfold to the kids."

"Ignore the review below by Christopher Culver, he obviously hasn't got a clue what he's talking about, I agree that Sasha and Digweed are superior mixers as far as technical skill is concerned but what he doesn't understand is that Oakenfold has never been a mixer, what has made him one of the all time greats DJs has been his taste, resulting in superb track selection.
Also Culver's arguement is crippled because this Oakenfold mix was mixed 'live' whereas the Digweed and Sasha sets he refers to were done on a computer using pro-tools, most of Sasha's and Digweed's sets are done this way."
Oakenfold does it again but only on one cd

"Paul okenfold's live in Oslo is a great but for any global underground fan or like great trance with killer beats. It is highly recommended. But dont expect two great CD's number two rocks. CD 1 lacks something but no CD ever has two good CD's besides his first and best when he did GU in New York. Look it up its the best he has ever done."
