CD Reviews

Classic rave is classic sex
Daniel ( | San Diego | 07/18/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the more enjoyable CD purchases I've made lately; I was actually entertained (suprise, suprise!) Some of Rave's more cheezy moments are preserved on this retrospect (such Dominator) but other moments are just totally classic. Such as the riveting move groove of Capella's Everybody. And also enjoyable is Baby D's Let Me Be Your Fantasy (nice breakbeat loops with nice minor-7th pads and sexy voice). Beyond classic are the inclusion of 808 State's Pacific State (remember that erie lead horn synth hook?) and Moby's GO (before Moby went). If you were part of the rave ordeal in the early 90s this will bring back a lot of memories of strange evenings on Indian reservations. If you like hot, booming retro-techno, you will like this."
Some of the best Old School Classiks

"Classic Rave has got to be one of the best "Old School" Comps every put on CD. First off you get the likes of Baby D, Human Resource, and Moby or this, but this has one of the best Electronica songs every put on album and that is the classic "Trip II the Moon (parts one and two)" I encourage all fans of electronica, espically the newer generation, to pick this CD up for that one Song alone. For the time it was recorded, it is revoluntary for an electronica song. The beats, the changes, the emotion of "Trip to the Moon" sends chills down my spine, still to this day. Even though some of the songs are a bit cheesy, you really get a good feel for the early days of Rave..ENJOY"

"I can't say I really know what I'm talking about when it comes to retro-techno/rave stuff...I just recently got into rave music...but I can say that I really enjoyed this album, even without knowledge of these songs beforehand. There's a good selection of songs here that all stand apart and are completely favorites are probably Pacific State 808, On A Ragga Trip (one of the most dancable songs), and Trip II the Moon (my fave! hehe it's so~o tyte...imho) I dunna. Just...sample a few songs, and if you like what you hear...get it! You don't have to have knowledge of the rave scene in the past to enjoy this CD!"
