Robert Miles is one hell of a talented man, WOW...I wonder why this album only became famous years after it's release. ''Fable'' became a dance floor hit during in 98/99, the song was constantly played everywhere. It's hard to believe that this CD was originally released in 1996, while it sounds like it was produced years ahead of its release.
The style of music here is dance, moreover there are the piano tunes, which climb along with the beats making the song climax occasionally. In addition to that, you have lightly sedative vocals which mourn through most of the songs, giving them a dreamy mood, one of the female vocalists-- Maria Nayler has a incredible voice which sounds like a hybrid between Nina Persson's (From The Cardigans) and Madonna's voice-- imagine both voices merged in?...the result of that would definitely be pleasant-- and well that's what her voice sounds like. But also she isn't the only female vocalist included, 4 different vocalists are also along for the project.
This album takes you off to a dreamland, telling stories about the mystical and fantasy world, occasionally during the CD it starts to sounds a bit unnerving because some of the tracks feature the most unheard-of sound effects....they sound like they came from another world...- But Hey? that's the whole point of this CD.
My Favorite Tracks are: One And One, Children, Fable, Fanstasya, Red Zone.
This is definitely for fans of trance/house music. This man did a great job!. I also liked the production for the X-Files theme song...unfortunately that's not included here. But other then that-- ''Dreamland'' is a excellent masterpiece and definitely stands a testament to it's time...1996.
