Wait a minute, this isn't trance...

"But it's still pretty good. I was listening to one of our local radio stations, where Christian B was mixin' it on the turntables and promoting his cd, "Full Frequency." He wasn't too shabby, and I actually thought about buyin his album, but then I heard a radio commercial for this album, and I was like, "cool, i'm buying this." But I kept a cautious mind, cuz all the commercial played were the good mixes, at their climax. Still, I don't regret buying this album. Some of the mixes aren't exactly my tastes, but I would still recommend it for anyone remotely associated with clubs. (Heck, Darude's "Sandstorm" makes it all worthwhile, although the mix on this album could have been better.) There are some other nice crowd pleasers, like Melanie C's "I Turn To You," and Devito's mixing is smooth. Good mixing and nice tracks make this a compliation to add for your collection. Anyways, have fun with it."
Worth the money....

"This is a good CD with lots of good songs. Unfortunately, he skips over the good songs in 3 minutes while some others...take six minutes to play through. No matter what other reveiwers said, ignore them. This CD is absolutely not worth buying for the Darude song... He takes that annoying lady from the "dive in the pool song" and puts her...lyrics all over "Sandstorm". You know that part right after the climax of the song, and it all fades to a quiet, soft melody, and slowly gets louder? The lady says "well all righ', how y'all fellin' tonigh'? Y'all fellin' good? I'm feelin' mighty good tonigh', but 'cha see bayba, it's a lotta hot in here. In more ways than one..." and she keeps going on and on and won't shut up and ruins the whole song. Now, whenever I listen to the [another] version, I am always expecting those stupid lyrics. I repeat, do no buy this for the sandstorm song. The songs are good, but there are unexpected transitions that are like hitting a wall. you jump from one song to the other. Bottom line: Good CD, worth buying, but don't expect it to become your new favorite CD."
Exciting at First, but Very Quickly a Bore.

""Patchy" is the word to begin to describe Louie DeVito's "NYC Underground 3," which at times sounds like a poor man's version of the Ministry of Sound compilations. Things get off to a promising start with Mel C's "I Turn to You," and the dynamite "Spente le Stelle" by Emma Shaplin. The latter tune expertly merges opera with a flaming Hi-NRG groove that works surprisingly well. The rest of the collection, however, is as consistent as the cash flow in my checking account. We are later treated to the overlong and monotonous "Final Chapter" by Mike Macaluso. Similar tracks also weigh the album down somewhat. What works? We get a cool mix of the infectious "Dive in the Pool" by Barry Harris, and we get Dynamix's club anthem "Don't Want Another Man." Don't get me wrong; this mix isn't bad, but you have to press your "skip" button more than once to navigate your way to the good stuff on this uneven CD."
