iTunes Review

Finnish producer Darude's "Sandstorm" so perfectly nailed the quicksilver rush of epic, pulsating trance that it was used by everyone from pro wrestlers to the Republic of Singapore Air Force as hype music. The track is joined on his debut by comparably propulsive fare like "Feel the Beat"—perfect for peak-hour dance floors or pushing your Porsche into the red—while "Let the Music Take Control" dabbles in funky house and "The Flow" takes a drummy breakbeat for a ride. It's a quintessential snapshot of trance circa 2000.

The catchy melodies in Sandstorm and Out of Control are as good as rhythm and feelings in Touch Me Feel Me and Drums of New York. So please, don't listen to the iTunes review. Listen to it for yourself.
