Tilt (Mick Park, Mick Wilson, Andy Moor) are masters of the dance world and their debut album is finally here. From the cauldron-deep hypnotica of album opener, and recent single ?The World Doesn?t Know?, to the techy-rhythms of ?Tokyo Breaks? and the electro-rumblings on the sleaze-houser ?Poledancer,? fans of the trance and progressive house genre will not be disappointed!
A very good artist album from a legend of the genre.

"Tilt's been on the progressive scene now for several years, and here they've come up with an artist album of varying styles. Trance, breakbeat, techno, downtempo, house, it's all here, and they've done a decent job. Artist albums in any musical style can never be solid all the way through, as it's not like a mix album where you can take the best of the best tracks and splice them all together. I think electronic fans are spoiled and use to mixes chock-filled with anthems from top to bottom, so they are very hard on artist albums.
I only dislike 3 tracks on here, Venus in Transit, Antivalentine and Crescendo. Tracks like 12, Goodbye, and The World Doesn't Know are all current trance anthems, and Control Me is a fantastic vocal track. A New Day is rather pop-like, but it's a very catchy pop like song and I like it a lot. There's much to like on here, and while I said I disliked only 3, there are a few average ones like Explorer and Electronic Poledancer, but listenable nonetheless.
Overall, a very above average artist album and one every Tilt fan should definitley own, and every other trance fan should consider owning. Also check out fellow label mate Probspot's new artist album."

"Excellent cd. I like the variety. Like most electronica listeners, they're not influenced by just one style. The trancey "the world doesn't know" is very listenable and "new day" is top 40 style pop candy. I can't say I really dwell in this genre (listen to more nu-folk & rock), and maybe it's because we dont normally get much trance in the L.A. club scene, but I'm smitten and refreshed by Explorer's sound."
Ignore The Other Reviews, This Album Rocks!!!

"This album totally took me by surprise. Reading all the reviews giving this album an average to mediocre rating I wasn't to overly excited about picking it up. I finally brought myself to purchase "Explorer", and I was pleasently surprised. All I have to say is all the other reviewers need to get out of '1998' and evolve with the times. The style of music they're listening for is over & played out. You're only gonna find that cheeseball stuff from producers like "DJ Sammy", "ATB", "Darude", "Ian Van Dahl" all of which have been banished to American Soil, 'cause everyone in Europe have evolved, and moved on. With "Explorer" you'll get some major bangers, and a couple softy's, all very different sounding showcasing their versatility. People really bashed on "AVB's - Shivers" for being diverse, I thought that one blew away "76" by a mile though. So I guess if you're looking for average cornball cheese trance look elsewhere(I think "ATB" just put out a greatest hits). If you want some serious mature dance music, give this one a spin, you won't be disapointed."
