Massive Respect, so they say...
somebody | NYC | 06/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a seminal recording with some of the best stuff that was going round' back in 97' 98'. Featuring the who's who of the UK scene, this prototype is full of great music. There aren't too many other albums that offer the diversity of the genre like this one does. Definately a classic. And whoever wrote that really ignorant, stupid remark a few reviews up (moving to the jungle, bad music, etc), I think you need to go read some book's on John Cage, Stockhausen, or Boulez...or any of the most important composer's of electronic music who foresaw the uses and manipulations of these types of sounds as the future of music, not the archaic mentality that music is lifeless like the way you portray it with your weak, uninformed, useless at that... opinion. Get some rhythm. A good album...sorry."
Flawless mix by the master

"It's flawless. The track selection and sequencing are perfect. Even though all the tunes are dark, they're tastefully chosen and the production on them is the highest caliber you'll see in jungle. "Secrets" by John B completely rips it up, the two-stepping Matrix and Optical (they're brothers!) tracks are a good wind-down, and Dillinja's "Silver Blade" subsequently tears through with the massive bass. Groove's own tracks are impeccable, of course, and Lemon D brings it all together with his track which really DOES evoke the sense of cruising in the city at night. This is one of the best drum&bass mixes around...also look at the Platinum Breakz, V Classics and Logical Progression series."

"Right after the holy trinity of LOGICAL PROGRESSION, PLATINUM BREAKS & TORQUE, comes V CLASSICS AND this monster. though the vocal bytes found on "dreams of heaven" & "deep inside" might not be to your liking, other tunes such as "mute" & "gray oddyssy" manage to ride the fence between light and dark with amazing skill. either way, you MUST hear the absolutly Dope "locust" by ed rush & fierce, THE BEST! tech-style tune ever made!"
