  • Summary: Features the UK chart-topper "Don't Give Up," with vocals from Bryan Adams.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 6
  2. Negative: 1 out of 6
  1. A postcard-perfect summer pop jam, "Don't Give Up" is one of many delights on Chicane's much-anticipated sophomore album, "Behind The Sun."
  2. 60
    Like many a club anthem, Chicane's massive tracks have a formulaic feel.
  3. When he isn't heating up the dance floor with unlikely guests, Bracegirdle constructs spacy ambient tracks that cool things down.
  4. It's a little cheesier than the average trance album, but will probably appeal to some of those who enjoy Paul Van Dyk or even ATB
  5. Anodyne dance music for people who don't go to clubs, comedown music for people who don't do drugs.

    You must be joking. This is one of the all-time best dance/chil albums ever made. Nick's classical background is evident in these scintillating compositions. Oddly, though, the most famous track (with Bryan Adams singing) is the worst one on the CD. Buy it and you definitely won't regret it. Expand

    One of the best albums of the genre. Those ratings don't do justice.

    "Anodyne dance music for people who don't go to clubs, comedown music for people who don't do drugs. " The usual useful and pragmatic review from NME. I'm surprised it hasn't got more overt political undertones! Irrespective of NME and their inability to review music coherently, this album is a classic and is simply perfect for the summer. One of my favorite albums. Ever. Expand

    cracking album... sit back, closy your eyes and relax, you'll think you know all the tunes on the album, then you'll realise you DO, they're all blinding! Expand
