IN THE MIX
REMIX DOUBLE ALBUM WHY NOT, GOLDHEAD RELEASE: MAY 17, 2000 REVIEW: AUGUST 29, 2000
I've already stated my appreciation of melodic trance in general and Israeli giants of the genre, Astral Projection, in particular. I can't help but feel disappointed with "In the Mix" though. Labelled a compilation, it gives us a whole lot of great tracks, but some of my favourites are missing. All the songs are mixed together too, which also annoys me. However, the deep bass drums, hovering bass lines and skilfully played melodies still puts a ridiculous smile on my face. Their latest studio album "Another World" is their best work to date, and it's interesting to follow their musical progress on "In the Mix". And although I liked the entire 150 minutes of this double CD, I'm sure the sceptics will give up somewhere on the first disc.
