    The sheer variety of genres in this remix collection is just one indication of the breadth of influence that N.O.W has exerted over the past two decades.

    All of it fits together surprisingly well here--a satisfying, if imperfect, sampling.

    What's interesting to note is, with instrumentation technology improvement, Evelyn appears content to capture analogue warmth. [No. 111, p.57]

    Basically, each successive Nightmares on Wax album has featured new music made from the same basic ingredients. But, as N.O.W. Is the Time proves, those ingredients usually add up to a flavorful, highly-enjoyable, quite possibly pot-laced brownie.
  5. The cream of their output is undeniable--the Air-like stringed beauty of ‘Les Nuits’, gut-wobbling soul wailer ‘I Am You’ and early singles ‘Dextrous’ and ‘Aftermath’--but there’s an awful lot of so-so wallpaper here, especially for a Best Of.
