"At this very time, I'm listening to this CD. It hasn't left my CD in 2 weeks and love every minute of it. It's a great CD set jam packed with the best songs from around the world. I've always been a fan of DJ Encore and he shows that he has great taste in music. Since I have the first CD in, I'll give you a song by song review (first CD only).1) Thank You (Deep Dish Vocal Remix) - Dido
Rating: 4/5 - A good intro to the CD, not much variation in the song but still offers a good remix. There's one part that has this wierd effect and it hurts my ears.2) They Say Vision (DJ Encore Remix) - Res
Rating: 5/5 - Not until today did I give this song a full listening to and I'm happy I did. The vocals match great with the beat making it one of the best on the CD.3) We Are All Made of Stars (DJ Tiesto Vocal) - Moby
Rating: 3/5 - I've never been a fan of Tiesto and I can't say this song changed my opinion. I liked the song to begin with, but this version seems bland. 4) Heaven (Extended Mix) - DJ Sammy & Yanou feat. Do
Rating: 3/5 - This is a good song but it was played so often when it was popular that it seems old now.5) I See Right Through to You (Pulser Remix) - Dj Encore
Rating: 4/5 - The beginning seems to last forever but gets into a good mix. I think it could be improved a little but still worth a listen from time to time.6) Who Will Love Me (Radio Edit) - Riva feat. Dannii Minogue
Rating: 5/5 - Great song! Fast paced with great beat and vocals. I listen to it every time. The song seems so forceful that you can't stop listening to it!7) Wanna Be With Me - Da Buzz
Rating: 2/5 - Granted it has a good chorus, the rest seems pop-ish. A little disappointing. I listen to it every once and a while.8) Omnibus - Laut Sprecher feat. Katie Skate
Rating: 5/5 - My favorite overall. The chorus is amazing and the beat keeps you dancing. The voice does get annoying but is tolerable. I loved German music and this gives me more reason to do so.9) Fire (Orange Factory Vocal) - Dolce
Rating: 2/5 - One word...."DISCO". I felt like I was in the 70's again. It's decent but nothing more.10) The Sound of Goodbye (Robbie Rivera Vocal) - Perpetuous Dancer
Rating: 2/5 - I had heard the regular mix of this song and this version does not do it justice. I recommend the original.11) Safe from Harm - Narcotic Thrust feat. Yvonne John Lewis
Rating: 3/5 - Decent song. Seems almost Caribbean at the beginning. It's a good song but doesn't fit my taste.12) Sunglasses at Night (Extended) - Tiga & Zyntherius
Rating: 2/5 - Repetitive and bland. The first time I listened to it, I kept wondering when it was going to end.Well that's it for CD #1! The first CD is alone worth the price so go for it! You'll love it!"

"Ultra Dance 01 was a great cd, and still is... it's one of those dance comps i will never get tired of... Ultra Dance 02 is following in its footsteps! DJ Encore did a nice job, although nothing special, with the mixing. The track selection is really really good, with a lot of songs that arent on any other mix cd's as of now. Included is the latest song from Da Buzz "Wanna Be With Me"... a love this song. It came out a while ago in europe, this is its first USA release. Great followup to "Let Me Love You Tonight". This cd is worth is just for that one song! 2 cd's of pure hi energy dance music, including some very mainstream tracks and some from the underground, should satisfy every dance music fan! Definitely pick this one up!!"
Better Than "Ultra Dance 01."

"Ultra Dance 01 was a promising collection assembled by Johnny Vicious that was weighed down considerably by the second disc, which I still haven't yet warmed up to. But on this second volume, mixed by DJ Encore, the groove is much more consistent. We have familiar remixes of Dido and Moby, plus we have the inescapable trance remake of Bryan Adams' "Heaven" by DJ Sammy (Memo to Sammy: hang on to your paychecks. This song has "one hit wonder" written all over it). Dannii Minogue (Kylie's sister) also stands out in the pumped-up "Who Will Love Me." But there are cheesy moments. I don't think there's been a huge demand for a Eurodisco remake of Madonna's "Like a Prayer," but we have it here anyway, thanks to Mad House. And, boy, it's so cheesy it looks better on a pizza. But you have to give DJ Encore props for including the soulful Latin vibes of Masters at Work, who are represented on the infectious "Work." All in all, this disc should hit the spot for most dance music lovers. In my school of music, "Ultra Dance 02" gets a B."
