Columbia Germany's Dream Dance series compiles up-to-date club music, providing around 40 tracks in each two-disc package. Although a fair percentage of the tracks included were bona fide dancefloor hits, there's a great deal of nondescript fluff surrounding them, making the sets ideal only for the most patient fan of trance and progressive house. Dream Dance, Vol. 3 includes Faithless' "Salva Mea," Magnetic Pulstar's "Secret Love," Love and Fate's "Love and Fate, Pt. 2," Moby's "Go," Groove Solution's "Sweet Melodies," Paul Van Dyk's "Beautiful Place," Blue Alphabet's "Cybertance," Futura Nostra's "Why Don't You Dance With Me," Jam & Spoon's "Right in the Night," and Red 5's "Da Beat Goes."

One of the first truly independently produced albums to be released in Britain, the album featured wonderful compositions such as Everyone’s Hero, End of the Seasons, Love’s a Way and Smiles . Championed by John Peel, the album paved the way for Bill’s future career with his bands Be Bop Deluxe and Red Noise and for his highly regarded solo career.
Documentary following the creation of Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry's most ambitious project to date - the building of a secular chapel near Harwich in tribute to Essex women. The building has a one-off visual style, handcrafted down to the finest detail, with relief tiles and tapestries depicting the character of Julie, who stands for Essex women everywhere. As the design comes together, Perry seeks inspiration from single mums and hairdressers, but he soon struggles to bring the enormous project in on time and on budget - and finds himself dealing with baffled local residents.
This excellent 3-CD album opens very interesting perspectives in a consistent quality of implementation. Firstly it gives a glimpse of the variety of minimalist movement that covers both a circular Philip Glass arpeggios, more neo- romantic, the religious tintinabulisme a Pärt , enjoyment micro - offsets a Riley or Reich, verve and almost jubilant " Britpop " Nyman or a poetic dreamer and a bit gray from those who claim to Satie.

Mary Ellen Childs (b. 1957) has been acclaimed for creating both rhythmic, exuberant instrumental works and bold, kinetic compositions that integrate music, dance and theater in fresh and unexpected ways. Dream House lives in the same land that the New York string quartet Ethel has been exploring in recent years, a frontier where modern classical and alternative rock meet and mingle. One could note Childs’ apparent influence on the players in Ethel in some of their own compositions on the recent album , particularly first violinist Cornelius Dufallo’s “Lighthouse.” Like that album, Dream House strikes a balance between accessibility and challenge, sounding utterly of its time without having an expiration date stamped on its side. This is music that has potential appeal for both the open-minded classical listener and the rock music fan who enjoys the daring edge. -- www.musicweb-international.com
