The first thing that hits you when you play this CD is the fact that Pete Namlook has no part in it, and without his style, this album is noticeably different from the others. This is good in the sense that the tracks differ from what might be expected, but the inconsistencies between the tracks are quite noticeable. Compilation 1 kicks off with "Never Mind", a formulaic 909/analogue thumper that (like most Fax dance produce) works for a few listens and is then usually forgotten. "Elephant Overload" is another distorted hardcore techno track; nothing outstanding. Both "Lost In Motion" and "Dune (Of Love)" are pleasant but fairly run-of-the-mill trance/progressive tracks…

Vajra is the compilation from the Italian based label Indica Music. Compiled by Josko, this compilation features mostly globally well known artists (Gaudi, Cell, Tripswitch, Aes Dana and more). Trying to discover new directions in music and to spice up the monotonous new age style of today, this compilation is a sexy stew of electronic and ancient world influences, spontaneously blending different styles of ambient, downtempo and dub. Vajra is a must have for ambient lovers, chillers and lazy dancers, this compilation will surely be the perfect answer for all those selective listeners.

For more than 45 years, the music of Yes has been thrilling music lovers throughout the world. Not only did this band create exciting new albums of incredible songs, it virtually invented an entirely new style of music… orchestral, symphonic, sometimes folk-influenced rock with lyrical content and social conscience. The band, Yes, and its musicians (both current and former) are still creating music today and have spawned new generations of musicians who have waited for an opportunity to thank their musical "fathers" for the creative energy that Yes inspires. Now, "Tales From Yesterday… A View From The South Side of The Sky" gives the world an opportunity to hear past and current members of Yes as well as their musical offspring (both figurative and literal) re-create Yes material from new perspectives and with wisdom that only the passing of time allows.

Jazz Loves Disney was recorded between Paris, London and Los Angeles by a dream cast. It is incredibly coherent, as if all participants had agreed to pay a rightful tribute to the most beautiful and symbolic tunes of Walt Disneys magic world, as if nothing was too good for the stars when they revisited the classics and the sweet childhood memories connected to them. This is the ultimate proof of the impact Disney has had on generations of jazz musicians, including the ones taking part in Jazz Loves Disney.

Responding to the big demand, the joint-venture between Colossus (The Finnish Progressive Music Association) and Musea proudly presents its concept-album: "The 7 Samurai - The Ultimate Epic". Here's a Progressive rock concept-album inspired by the famous film by Akira Kurosawa (1954). The story has been divided in three chapters, and Consorzio Acqua Potabile (Italy), Tempano (Venezuela) and Taprobran (Italy) have been chosen to interpret one track. The total length of each suite is around 25 minutes. The sound remains faithful to the spirit of the Seventies Progressive rock music: original keyboards (Hammond organ, Moog, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes, Grand Piano etc.) are favoured, and the bands avoid loops, drum machines or other Eighties and Nineties digital sounds.
