thought it plenty tasty, it gets plenty of play in this shack.Up loud in the kitchen, great for cooking. Has what i 'd call a deliciously sinewy nature runnin up thru the mojo floorboards ....twists and writhes like the finest Vino and Spaggethi . hows about you?

All in all good album, well thought through, and some pretty creative remixes going on there. Positive thing is seems to be more substance than style, which is a good thing.

I like the album very much.
Theres a good range of tunes on there and it flows together nicely.

The mixes of spooky, lostep and ulrich schnauss are top drawer.
If I could level a criticism at it, it would be on the selection of the Felix Da Housecat track. Personally I think this track is out of place on the album and doesnt really fit the atmosphere and ambience of the album.

I heard there were originally 15 songs for the album and I reckon one of the 5 dropped might have been a better choice to lead into that beautiful mix of Ulrich Schnauss. Just my opinion though... Be interested to know what those other tracks were, am sure they will probably be released at some point in the future.

By far the best part of sasha's music is the availability of his samples. He offered a load of involver sounds to download to remix with aswell as the complete sample library of his artist album Airdrawndagger. Decent quality files too, pretty generous I think.

All in all though a very solid release from sasha.

Am digging the album, it's a nice mix and it has Sasha's stamp all over it - fave track would probably be the Grand National one.

I agree on that Felix The House Cat track, it's good, but doesn't fit with the rest of the album at all IMO.

I never thought Sasha was good, maybe I never heard any good tracks, I always thought Paul Oakenfold was the best, I think Sasha just took him out with the help of Live.

The Ulrich track made my day. I love that guy's work... he has such a good ear for sound, and his samples are so unique and clean. I was pleased to see that a track of his would be featured on this mix and hopefully earn him a bit more recognition...

I absolutely love this album. I consider it my top fave album of the year. Brilliant work with Live, and the track selection is superb (yes, even the Felix track, which I think fits in very nicely for my ear).

i really don't like what he does , the last sasha cd i bought from virgin was so crap that i returned it the next day . £15 for the cd was a fucking rip off considering the quality of the music .
i am still pissed of about buying the crap & honestly even if i book the guy sometimes to bring a few more peoples.
i think what he plays sometimes is really good but his own music is a big pile of shit .that cd was a bid disapointment considering what the guy can do to a crowd.

Probably Airdrawndagger, that one wasn't exactly a testament to musical genius.
