"The Waveform label remains one of the great undiscovered secrets within the world of electronic music. These folks have been putting out interesting, intriguing, high-quality ambient-with-a-beat electronic music for over six years now, and yet they remain largely unknown except to a small number of devoted fans (like myself). "Two A.D.," one of a series of three "A.D." best-of-the-label compiliations, was released five years ago, and yet the tracks still sound fresh, appealing, and cutting-edge. Of the various artists included here, the Scandanavian master of ambient techno Biosphere has perhaps become the best known in recent years within the world of electronica. However, just about all of the artists contributing here are masters of their craft in their own right. Some of the highlights of the album include Sounds from the Ground's hypnotic "Triangle," A Positive Life's "Pleidean Communication," and Higher Intelligence Agency's "Tortoise." I would recommend this cd to fans of the "chillout" electronic music that has become so very popular among dance music fans in recent years. People who enjoy Kruder & Dorfmeister in their various projects, The Thievery Corporation, chillout comps like "Om Lounge," and slow trip-hop and ambient music generally should give this cd (and others from Waveform) a try."
Phenomenal! even more dubbed and spaced out than the first.

"As much as I absolutely loved One A.D., Two A.D. was even more extrodinary than the first. The feel of this album is very aquatic and bubbly with a very futuristic sound as well. It is the ultimate chill-out, relaxation, trance inducing, mindaltering cd I own yet at the same time maintains a rhythmic flow with mellow beats. Even the cover artwork is mindblowing! This record label WAVEFORM, releases some of the best stuff when it comes to ambient music and if you like this cd you are bound to like most, if not all releases from Waveform. Other cds on that label I would MOST HIGHLEY reccommend if you like this are:One A.D. (volume one Ambient Dub) Three A.D. (volume three Ambient Dub) Ancient Alien (various artists) Slumberland (various artists) Sounds from the Ground "Kin" Loop Guru "Duniya" Loop Guru "Duniya" Higher Intelligence Agency "Colourform" Higher Intelligence Agency "Freefloater" A Positive Life "Synaesthetic" Open Canvas "Nomadic Impressions" Zero One "Zero One"Other compilations not on Waveform but that are very similar to this and which I highley reccommend are:all three "Barramundi" cds the "Logic trance" series (more for if you like the dance/trance aspect of the waveform cds) the "Feed your Head" series "Amberdelic Space" (4-cd boxset)"
A nice follow-up to One A.D.

"If you liked One A.D. for its trance-inducing beats and melodies, you really ought to travel to a different destination with Two A.D. Two A.D. is very much like its predecessor, only slightly more mellow. The tracks aren't quite as individual and different from one another as they were in One A.D. I'm quite pleased with 2, and I plan to buy Three A.D.."
