Apocalypse's Space Katett is the first track. First of all I must say that his production has improved greatly lately. Powerful full on track with flowing melodies, a real party stormer. Next is Hipped Up by Blackout. This track is not something you'd expect on a Com.pact compilation, psychedelic and hard, at some points even tech-trance like. Unfortunately it is quite boring and built rather poorly. Water Pipe by Sesto Sento is next. The usual Sesto style with lots of electronic sounds but this time there are also some Goa influences that sound very good. Ultravoice vs. Aquatica- Diamond Sky does sound like Aquatica. Massive bassline and sounds, but that's about it. I've heard better from Aquatica, and Ultravoice didn't seem to help this track too much. First Sun from the Rock by Visual Paradox comes next. Quite decent, considering the fact that I wasn't expecting too much from it. Some parts sound somewhat childish but overall this is an ok track. Bizzare Contact joins Phanatic (the guys split up...) for Seven Days. A typical old school Bizzare Contact track with massive crunchy sounding melodies (even if it gets way too cheesy at the end) and rich layers of sounds and effects. Spiritual Visions by the Misted Muppets is the real highlight of this compilation. Take the well known Misted madness, add some live and ethnic elements, add an Infected-like melody, which the only word that can properly describe it is "killer" and you get one of the best tracks I've heard in a while. After the madness is over, System Nipel comes just at the right time to chill. Happy morning track with a very airy feeling and small touches of uplifting melodies. Air Waves by Ultravoice is the last track on this compilation. Nothing special, just regular Ultravoiceish full on.

Recomendation:  Some very good tracks here, with 7 and 8 being the best. A tiny bit different than the usual style Com.pact releases. The cover art is very nice- good job on the drawing and ideas. Favorites: 1, 3, 7(!), 8.
