"I purchased this CD not too long ago and was pleasently surprised on how much I truely enjoyed it. This is a rarity as I'm sure alot of other people have purchased other compilation CDs, only to be utterly disappointed. I think you may find this to be an exception. BT's Lucid Mix of Dreaming is very melodic, and has to be one of my favorite versions of the song next to his Lucid Mix Edit. He has a way of making the song have a life of it's own, yet stay listener and radio friendly. Very smart. Other tracks I liked were Heaven's Earth, Angry Skies, and Tell Me Why (The Riddle). Although Paul Van Dyke has had more success with a few of his other hits, Tell Me Why still stays true to his signature sound and has a good beat. You'll even find a few cover songs that were morphed into a Trance sound, like Lovin' You originally sung by Minnie Riperton and Ordinary World originally sung by Duran Duran. It also has typical 'Trance' music you hear at clubs just about everywhere like Cry. Like with any CD, there were a couple songs I just couldn't get into, like Song for Zoe and Desire, but I'd still stand by this CD due to the many other songs I found I really liked."
