Kane: So Glad You Made It        (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
  April 6, 2004

Paul Van Dyk is a well known DJ from Europe who excels at fast beat, dance mixes. He takes on a more pop sensibility with "Reflections".

  October 18, 2003

What a pleasant surprise it was to see Talk Talk on the upcoming releases from EMI. Mark Hollis and his mates, originally recruited by EMI to be the next Duran Duran, churned out some amazing albums.

If this is true, that is great news. Maybe more of those Dualdisc releases will get released to SACD. However, with who is reporting this, I have my doubts. In my experience, Musictap has a horrible record when it comes to reporting news. I am keeping my fingers crossed. ... more
