Barnes & Noble - David J. Prince
In celebration of the passing of centuries, leading British dance label London Records issued ESSENTIAL MILLENNIUM, a three-disc set that neatly sums up the current state of mainstream DJ culture with a mix set apiece from U.K. deck men Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, and Paul Oakenfold.

Fatboy Slim's party road show is a break-beat lovers dream, blending back and forth between the old school bites and the new big beats, including his own "Everybody Loves a Carnival" and the Chemical Brothers' "Private Psychedelic Reel," a favorite from Slim's 1999 gigs. Oakenfold's trance workout delivers the requisite withholdings and releases, furthering his continuous documentation of the world's most universal style of electronic dance music.

    Don't Bother

    While the name Paul Oakenfold rings a bell in everyone's head and many are eager to pick up the latest, I strongley recommend you save your money. For twice the cost of the disc you can go see him if you're near one of his stops. But hey if you dig Fatboy, then it may be worth it for you to check it out.

    Groovy, baby!

    The Fat-Boy disc is good, but Oak really brings it on his side. He effortlessly creates whatever state-of-mind he wants carrying you over a wide range of emotions. This will stay in the car for driving for a long time.

    Save your money.

    This CD was a serious disappointment. I gave this CD double two stars because of FatBoy CD, but Oakie CD just doesn't cut it. It is so mediocre and bland that I am suprised it was even put together. Believe me, your $16 is worth something better than this CD.
