Daniel W. Kelly | Long Island, NY United States | 11/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's definitely a nice mix of popular, electro house, and trance tunes on here, but the real treat is the amount of mixes that are hard-to-find on CD and are played out here in fairly long versions. Keep these kinds of releases coming Ultra! Track times and notes:

CD1

1. who knew...pink (7:42) (Basically the entire full length rockin' bimbo jones mix)
2. 4 in the morning (thin white duke mix)...gwen stefani (4:58) (You get almost 3 minutes more of this unreleased mix on Ultra Trance 7)
3. Wait for You (Jason Nevins mix)...Elliott Yamin (5:08) (5 minutes of the unreleased nevins mix of Yamin's R&B jam)
4. never again (dave aude mix)...Kelly clarkson (6:28) (THANK YOU Ultra for supporting kelly's latest release and giving us nearly the FULL remix by dave aude, who takes this hard rock track into dance punk territory)
5. stranger (jody den broeder mix)...hilary duff (4:37) (great commercial electro house mix that wasn't released commercially--which is why it should be longer than 4 and a half minutes)
6. in my arms (bimbo jones mix)...plumb (6:45) (nearly 7 minutes of bimbo jones remixing plumb. Electro pop perfection)
7. love today (moto blanco mix)...mika (6:04) (This is Mika at his most Scissor Sisters. This mix is VERY 1990s. Lots of piano. Not crazy about it)
8. calabria...enur (4:40) (What's with the 90s sounds? This has that deep house repetitive horn riff vibe. Nearly 5 minutes of it is more than enough)
9. Young Folks...Peter Bjorn and John (4:14) (Wow. This CD is suddenly all over the place. I feel like it's the 60s and I'm listening to Herman's Hermits of Paul Revere and the Raiders or something. But this Amy Winehouse vibe is getting big I guess. But I would NOT consider it dance music)
10. Again...Kim Leoni (5:07) (This song definitely comes to the rescue. Nice electro house vibe with catchy female vocals)
11. Do it Again...Chemical Brothers (5:45) (chemical brothers experimental electronica with a nice dance groove)
12. Love Is Gone...David Guetta (6:50) (David Guetta does what he does best--hard electro house with rockin' male vocals and super catchy chorus hook. This is pretty much the full length mix.)

CD2

1. Rise Up...Yves Larock (5:58) (personally, this rasta vocal house track is too light and uplifting for my tastes)
2. Heater...Samim (4:53) (horrible instrumental filler. I can't even describe how boring)
3. Guilty...De Souza (5:41) (this is a big disco house diva vocal anthem)
4. I Want Your Soul...Armand Van Helden (4:57) (The master of staying with the times delivers a modern house track with a retro 80s freestyle feel. Super catchy female vocals)
5. Sun Is Shining...Yanou (4:57) (Not sure we needed a new version of this rasta house song, but it's got some thumping beats)
6. This Time...DJ Antoine (5:12) (male vocal electro house stomper)
7. Not Enough...Roger Sanchez (5:11) (sanchez brings it with a slammin' female vocal track)
8. Bring the Noise...Public Enemy vs. Benny Benassi (5:54) (why does this song have to be on every dance compilation? Flava FLAV! (set to a dance beat))
9. Walking on the Moon...Delano & Crockett (4:01) (nice cover version of the Police classic. Great rasta vocals and electro house riff)
10. Break My Fall...Tiesto with BT (7:59) (gotta love this duo when they get together. Trance/electro fusion)
11. Anthem...Filo and Peri with Eric Lumiere (9:03) (mellow, trance feeling male vocal track. WOW, 9 minutes! Great cool down as we come to the close of the disc.)
12. Freefall...Jeckyll & Hyde (8:55) (Pretty euro trance instrumental. Nice way to end the disc.)
