Rarely can you find an artist album that from start to finish is a pleasure to listen to - every song holds up on its own and brings a uniqueness and originality by itself. Really good choice of collaborations and fantastic vocals - especially from the girls!
Congratulations Paul! Can't wait to hear all the remixes that are surely on their way!
I say that honestly too, it's got a couple of nice tunes, but that's hardly a redeeming feature when his old works were so good because they were like a woven tapestry with fine detail. Believe me, if you liked all the things about PVD that made him so interesting, his intricate melodies, interesting drum sounds and fx, you'll hate this, probably.
EDIT - Okay so some time has gone on. While I don't need to change my opinion on the quality of this work vs the quality of his older work I should say that as a stand alone this is on the better side of the new EDM sound. Still, not what I hoped for from PVD. We could really do with his unique and brilliant style today to shake things up a little. Far too much homogeneity in dance music now.
Standout tracks are The Ocean and Verano; though the PVD Full Fire remix of Verano is much better in my opinion (that remix is not on this album).
I absolutely love Rock This, its a great upbeat track. Lost in Berlin is a memorable track and the closing track Heart Stops Beating is really nicely done. One more thing, PVD's collaboration with Giusseppe Ottaviani for A Wonderful Day is probably the track that I think closest brings back memories of Paul Van Dyk and the EDM scene from early 2000s.
I would recommend this CD, it is a brand new PVD album with the classic PVD still shining throughout the album.
I was about to discover PvD, so I bought the album by the way (It was quite new at the moment) and was really excited about how the songs sound. I live in germany so I had to wait one or two weeks. But then I was reallly happy about I buyed this album!
Every song is just too good and I knew only two songs (one track) from the album, Eternity and, of course, Verano, before. Then I knew these all other (13) songs and was really happy :D
Also I found out a lot about other Artists, my favorite one on this album except Paul was Arty.
I enjoyed the booklet, too :)
