I have to admit right off the bat that I don't really know that much about trance/techno music nor am I very familiar with it. I do enjoy the music whenever I get an opportunity to listen to it, as it is very primal and danceable. What I did like about the CD is the fact that a Montrealer (Max 8) mixed this important international trance CD. There is a nice flow to the album from start to finish and Max8 shows a real feel for trance/techno. He has included some of trance/techno's biggest artists in Tiesto, Delerium, and Armin Van Buuren amongst others. There are also some well-placed vocals on the CD including an appearance by Jon Secada (where has he been?). Buy the album and support some local talent.
