CD Reviews

Paul Oakenfold- Anthems
J. Dunkel | Lakeland, FL USA | 10/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Oakenfold's newest release could be considered a milestone for dance music. The three disc collection spans from the mid nineties to the early part of the new millinium with a collection of classic dance floor tracks, ranging from melodic trance, dark drum and bass, and high energy club bangers. The mixes are superbly mixed by one of the greatest dj's of our time, Paul Oakenfold, and this will certainly take clubbers down memory lane. The album features several tracks that appeared on Oakey's mixed compilations that have become classics (such as Tranceport, Another World, the Global Underground compilations, 2 Years Resident at Cream, etc.). For me, this album is special because the first complete listen did bring up a lot of good memories because it was around 1997 or 1998 when I first started getting into a lot of electronic music, especially Paul Oakenfold. A few of the producers that appear on the compilation are BT, U2, Goureyella, Timo Maas, Tilt, Hybrid, Energy 52, Matt Darey, Robert Miles, Kosheen, Iio, ATB, Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan, and Paul Oakenfold himself.

"This is a great 3-disk set with many classic Oakenfold remixes. I love it. The only problem is since it is an import the track list doesn't update correctly from the internet when you rip to your computer. So if you are transferring to an mp3 player you will have to edit the song name and artist manually. But that's not a huge deal."

"I've been hoping that Oakie would come out with one of these albums. It has a lot of older stuff that I forgot about (like Zombie Nation) and it brings back memories of the parties from back in the day. The time when this was "underground" and the music was about the music and not about MTV! I wish he would have put some more songs/anthems on this, but he had so many back then that it would be impossible to have them all on just three cd's. And his mixing on these cd's was old school Oakenfold. Each song is around 4 mins long and then shoots right on into the next song kind of like his work at Cream. I'm So happy to have this. I'll be listening to this for years and years."
