"seriously, though, this is a must-have for all the ravers out there. This CD has everything. The brilliant "Song OF Life" starts you out and gets you moving. Moby, who is God, provides a more mellow beat but he keeps it strong. By the time Q.B.N.Z. rolls around you're ready to take a break. That's where the trance-induced track "A Great New Adventure" comes in and you can relax and enjoy. Germany's acclaimed DJ, Sven Vath comes on with full force that is pure techno. But hey, he's from Berlin, so he knows techno. Butoh is like a tribal techno track that starts out slow but builds up. You can't stop yourself from moving to this one. And finally the Prodigy's "Wind it Up" showcases the odd voice that Liam Howlett has but nevertheless, The Prodigy is known for their great stuff and this song will grow on you. So in conclusion, get this album! You won't regret it."

"I really haven't been a big techno fan for very long. I didn't get familiarize with the genre until I was in college, when I went to school in Milwaukee in the mid '90s. I had a roommate who loved techno music. Plus I would regularly hit the dance clubs on the weekend and dance to techno music. One of the first techno cds I bought was "Futurhythms", a pretty generic compilation. It was cheap through my record club at the time so I ordered it. On the more positive note, thanks to this cd I was introduced to the now defunct English duo known as Leftfield, another British techno act called The Prodigy, and a little unknown bald man who went by the name of Moby. I can't really say that "Futurhythms" is one of the best techno compilations that I have ever heard but it made for a nice introduction to rave music. The production had that same live sound so when I listen to it, I feel like I am in my favorite nightclub on a Saturday night dancing up a storm. I wasn't really crazy about The Prodigy track "Wind It Up" because they have put out much better songs than that particular track. I especially love the Leftfield and Jungle High tracks. Perfect songs to dance to in my opinion. The Moby song "Patients" was alright but I definitely prefer his latest material than his more dance orientated material. Gotta love the operatic vocals on the Zexos' song "Angel of Love". The rest of the cd is good, maybe not the best but it is still enjoyable to listen to. It is a nice mix of house with elements of trance music thrown in"

"Good stuff mixed with some poor. "Young American Primitive", despite the worthless sample here, makes the disk worth the money. Of course, "Papua New Guinea" is a nice compliment to any CD. Overall, I think this disk is to vague and lacks overall personality."
