IMHO this is a very good compilation; Boom Records is going from strength to
strength at the moment. What is great about this cd is the variety it
contains, there is a track here for all occasions, from the screaming darkness
of HuxFlux, to the gorgeous, almost retro, melodies of Twister. All the tracks
deserve some sort of mention because they are original, interesting a well
produced, but the stand-out ones for me are the Subcouds, which has a
brilliant creeping, whispering melody that sweeps you along; BotFB with
Andrenachrome (trainspotter's corner : this is the name of the legendary drug
taken from a human adrenaline gland, which is mentioned in H S Thompson's Fear
and Loathing in Las Vegas) is a stomping night time track with excellent Homer
Simpson samples; the Logic Bomb track also stands out with its good sample and
uplifting (but certainly not cheesy) melody.
Children, i think giving a compilation 6/10 because 2 of the tracks don't have
any melodies is a subjective piece of reviewing :-) For me this is one of
the top 4 or 5 compilation releases of the year, its definitely worth checking
out, 8.75/10 ;-) no ikea trance here.
