One Positive Reverberation - Various - Amberdelic Space II - Angel Of Ecstasy that can be said of Dressed to Kill's compilations is that they are a great way to get a solid collection together in a specific genre or set of related genres without spending an extreme amount of money. In the case of this four-CD box set, the genres in question range from the shaggy end of acid and space with a surprise Pretenders Of The Throne - Lock Up - Pleasure Paves Sewers from Hawkwind to the intense edge of tribal techno, which means there is a great deal of likeable synthesizer noodling, Millennium Of The Blind - Megadeth - Youthanasia great chunks of booming bass, periodic breakdowns, passages of experimental weirdness Syzygy provide a great example with "Namaste"trippy psychedelic guitars, and lots more.
Older listeners might well be struck by how much of the music here bears a resemblance to synthesizer bands of the early '70s -- particularly early Tangerine Dream -- but even the everything-old-is-new-again element comes equipped with a distinctly '90s approach to bass and percussion in other words, make sure you have woofers with titanium cones.
An excellent anthology that bears up in the zoned headphone space and on Positive Reverberation - Various - Amberdelic Space II - Angel Of Ecstasy dancefloor.
