Disc One only has eight tracks, but they are allowed to breathe and stretch out, and the presence of Gioia's "From the Inside" (which sounds delightfully like Destination's "Save Your Love For Me") should be enough for any discrimintaing dance music fan to head down to the store. Beyond that are impeccable otherwise unavailable or hard-to-find mixes of moderately popular tracks Cassius "Sound of Violence" and Roc Project/Tina Arena's "Never," both of which are here in mixes better than have been made available anywhere else. Add in Divine's "Native Love" in all its analog glory, and you have that rarest of critters- a beat-mixed dance CD with variety and a sense of playfulness.
Disc Two's mellower offerings include Pete Townsend's "Rough Boys," which it is now officially okay to like after his exoneration on those kind-of-charges, and the Matthew Good Band's "Weapon," which is a stunning angst-pop ballad. The vibe is subtler, but the effort is much appreciated, as even dance music enthusiasts can get tired of neverending beat-mixed infinity. Here's hoping that this kind of marketing approach will help keep dance labels alive and spinning.
