"well if you're a fan of mr. rauhofer you'll definitely enjoy riding through this 2 disc set. disc one starts out like most of his work. some sexy latina pussy cat spewing erotic echoing lyrics from the mouth while undertones of electro-tribal warehouse beats fill it's glowing industrial air. as usual he does a smooth job of layering his fades in and out. track 3 shows signs of sounds from the detroit minimal-tech genre similar to that of Aril Brikha. tracks 4-8 are a little repetitious and run together. track 9 has racey drum line with intermittent sounds of lasers backed by a nice steel drum flavor. it's very sacraficial sounding. the final track, track 10, on disc one, is by far the most diversified on the that disc. kind of trancey but keeping his tribal flavor present. great male lyrics. a progressive but yet subtle bassline. very nice.
disc 2 starts out with a quick high-tech pace and then slips into a nice slow roll and eventually reaches and then falls in and out of some sweet down tempo beats. he takes you right into the familiar sound of Suzanne Palmers "hide u". always nice to hear. tracks 3 and 4, to me, felt more like filler than originality. track 5 picks up the pace again with a throaty male vocal overriding sounds of intermittant dripping water, snares, etc. the transition from 5 to 6 was shaky. track 6, 7and 8 more filler. i enjoyed "Lula" track (..). finally 9 and 10 on disc 2 shine right up there with the final track on disc 1. atmospheric beats with high current floating prongs on track 9 lead me right into a funky drum and bass, dee lite feel but not as disco-ee. lyrics remind me of Pet Shop Boys. nice electro funk ending to a fun ride. nice job Mr. Rauhofer. i think he could of kept this piece of work to just 1 disc though. 3 stars at best but a nice addition to any collection."

"If you like hard tribal with just a touch of vocals and a hint of techno def scoop up this this cD. Peter's technique and track selection always makes me wanna dance, and this cd follows suit. Very energetic and flows nice throughout, full of hard basslines and smooth mixing.
If you bought this cd just for "days go by", you have no clue and were better off buying the dirty vegas cd single!
This is for the real clubbers/dancers/hard-house/tribal fans!"

"Peter Rauhofer is once again, superb! This collection takes you on a journey into HIS world. Peter plays in clubs all over Los Angeles and San Diego. He's one of our favorites (my partner and I). Anybody into the gay L.A. afterhours, circuit scene will certainly hear familiar tracks on this set. Just putting this CD in my player makes me want to drive to the Mayan in downtown L.A. and work up a sweat dancing to Peter all night (and morning) long. It's dark and heavy on the bass.......so sweet!"
