  1. The songs range from interesting and cool to blah and by-the-numbers, the footage hops from self-aggrandizing and boring to beautiful and big-hearted. It's all very precise and perfectly done, if you like that sort of thing.
  2. A document only for the hardcore fans.
  3. Though most of his career highlights also appear here, a parade of Paul Van Dyk productions is not what most listeners need to stave off boredom; his productions all work from a similar framework, and work best in the context of a broader mix set.

    Van Dyk can only do one style, and by the time the album is two=thirds over, you're already ready for him to mix out. [#86, p.59]

    I give this album a 10 because it takes you to a place that PVD creates and turns it into reality. Anamacion is by far his best peace, yet!
