    I kinda like it. Sounds like a movie soundtrack, and that's pretty cool.

    it has a fair good pack of upbeat songs...& some others that aren't so good. It seems though that songs are not really connected, theres no album as a hole. I don't know..maybe I'm just being a dick!. ...As an overall this CD rocks!. Its a must have for every Oakenfold fan...or dance-house music fan.

    Southern Sun IS the song for 2002... greatest hit of the year here in Malta

    Interesting record but not as consistent as the Oakenfold I was knew. A bit too hip-hoping to my taste. However, I must say, the song "Southern Sun" with vocals from Carla Werner is simply unbelievable! Too bad the feel of that song isn't felt on the entire album. Still, a good record.

    Spouts off on multiple tangents and never returns.
  2. The album works because Oakenfold has abandoned the stylistic limits of trance yet brought the genre's tuneful oomph to tracks with a little more personality.
  3. Diverse and constantly engaging.
