I originally purchased this CD in early 1997. I have been listening to techno for many years but this was the first of the verging 'Happy Hardcore' style that I had ever purchased. It was a blind buy, as I call them. I actually was intrigued buy the artwork. I was very pleased with what I heard inside. I am a Techno Junkie and I tend to be a little bit picky about what I like. Somtimes electronic music seems to boarder line on just being loud noise. This CD was nothing like that.
This CD is as fast as some of the Hardcore Industrial Techno, without all the anger. It is very upbeat and non-violent. The only aspect that makes it hardcore is the speed of the beat. In some cases it is as fast as 140 BPM. (Beats per minute) It is continual mix with some real bass punching power. The best track on the CD has got to be #14) "Evolution - Let the Music."
Before this CD I had never recognized Moonshine Music or DJ Anabolic Frolic as a 'must purchase.' I have now sought them both out and learned that they both have some amazing music to their credit. This is a must have if you like fast paced, happy, DJ mixed Techno. Definitely check it out.

Well... this is definitely an interesting style of music here, and I say this not to insult this type of music per se. In fact, taken in small doses, this is really pretty entertaining. But there are some problems with this album and the whole happy hardcore thing in general. It's so formulaic, you can easily tell what's going to happen in any given song at any given time. Basically, you get some really happy keyboards and fast but light beats, which will subside for a really cheesy (and I mean almost nauseatingly cheesy) vocal about love with incredibly fluffy lyrics, and then the keyboards go back in again. This is all well and good for a few songs, but when they ALL do this, it gets old. Also, the disc is so fast you'd almost need to be on a major, uh, sugar rush to keep dancing along. Not bad when used sparingly, but I wouldn't really recommend it for daily listening.

Happy Hardcore hast to be the worst music ever made. Someone gave me this cd and I took it out after 2 minutes. All of the drum and bass people who are into the old skool always talking about bringing it back to hardcore, or the energy of hardcore, well they obviously wernt talking of this. This is pure garbage. Its not that I cant handle the BPMs (its just a bit faster than Drum and Bass) but this is bad, speed up vocals. UHHH. I stepped on the cd so that no one would have to hear it ever again. I feel I did the world a favor. I did not expect candy raver stuff, I thought it would be good Champion Sound, Terrorist (by Q project and ray keith) but no, I got a cd full of rubbish, which incidently made it into the garbage can. DONT BUY THIS, IT IS BAD

Ok, let me first just say that i love electronica music. I love hard trance, progressive trance, vocal trance. I like techno music to, including underground beats but i must say that this happy hardcore music is well...[crummy]! ... and to some point....CHESSY!! But it all sounds its repitative and extremly annoying!!This is the type of music they play when cheerleaders are in their nation championship finals when there boucing on eachother or in the circus. This music blows and if its to advanced id rather be a begginer. I'll take Ferry Costen, Digweed, Oakenfold, system F, van dyke, warp brothers, ayla, ect over this [stuff] any day!

i love this cd! i just cant hear it enough. all of these songs sound like a little childs melody with a 140 bpm speed! "dawn of a new era" is one of the best songs on this whole cd. ......there are alot of others too. but the best songs on this cd are: reach out, go insane, its not over, forever, i believe, muzic, **dawn of a new era, now is the time, and wanting to get high. " i believe' sounds really cool. it has a lot of down tones in it, meaning that sound slows down, like a record that was on 75 drug down to 45. and forever sounds really warped and happy. not all of these songs get up to 140 bpm, but its all 100% happy hardcore

I've never been a real big fan of the Happy Hardcore genre; however, I'd like to explain my score of 2 from a critical viewpoint. The problem with this CD is the fact that almost every track sounds the same. Tracks listened to seperately aren't especially bad, but when listened to all the way through, the CD is just tiresome. The keyboards are especially repetative and add little personality to the tracks. The only bright spots are the lyrics, which is pretty much the only thing that varies. Like I said, I'm not a big fan of happy hardcore, so I suppose my opinion carries little weight.

as you all know, this is the opening cd to the six HAPPY2bHARDCORE music series. this cd has more of the happy melodies than the rest and it is a bit slower too. only a couple of songs get to the 140 bpm limit. (like song #1) i own chapter 3, 4, and 5 and i wanted to hear what started it all. i cant really place a favorite song on this cd, i lke htem all. this is a must have for any happy hardcore fan. WARNING: this cd is only for techno music fans. rap, pop, r&b, and country lovers stay away from this cd. it is too advanced for you!
