Upon listening to Balance 005, and 008, I have grown to enjoy these sets as they would be played in a club (e.g. Crobar). The Balance series has done a fine job of choosing their DJ's, and they have certainly made, in my opinion, their most refined choice in Jimmy Van M. Coming from a Miami background, and Dj'ing in New York, he has certainly established himself as one of the best at constructing a set. He wastes no time in laying down three discs here for Balance's 10th installment.

As we all know, disc one is chill out. I really enjoyed his transition from track one into track two. Also, his track 10 into track 11 from sisters Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones is very nice to hear. All the while, he is preparing the listener for disc 2, as is evident with the last track on disc one, which is minimal, dark, and constant.

Disc two, midtempo, it not significant of the beats per minute. Although I did not guage the three discs, two and three are more beat driven than the first, and I don't think that disc three is faster than disc two, but they are more around the same bpm's (124 - 126). The highlights of disc two are basically every track. (Upon looking at the sleevenotes, one can see that all the tracks, more pertinent to discs one and two, span the course of 12 years. One track was from 1994!) Mr. Mulligan's track selection for disc two is so good that each track blends into another as a seamstress connects one piece of cloth to another to form a style all her own.

Disc three, for me the culmination of years of research and studio editing, is Jimmy Van M's tour de force. From the opening track, its guitar riffs catch you, and his signature "two of the same track" intro begins to produce a spellbinding experience.

from good to awesome! I get the feeling that this is an incredibly personal mix, because it encompasses so many different records, emotions, and feels. That said, the pacing and mixing shows that this mix is composed by a master-class DJ. This mix is a real journey, as cliche as that term may sound. Just take a look at the track list, and you'll see the depth of music that is informing Jimmy Van M. When you can match Brian Eno to Depeche Mode, and Cocteau Twins to Speedy J, you've got something special. The only complaint I have is that the mix is so personal that certain tracks just don't ring right for me because of differing tastes. Though for me, this only happens at the end of the Disc 2 in a giant 3 disc set! So, if you're reading this, I encourage you just to go ahead and buy it.

This is Balance 010 and EQ is on the milestone with Jimmy Van M. This is the perfect 3CD set for those who enjoy breakbeats and letting go of things to relax. This is also a disc for you balance fans.

The breakdown of 3CD's is from chillout to progresive house beat. The first disc is basically chillout music. Jimmy compiles a couple of tracks that were used on Nick Warren's Back to Mine CD, like Coldcut's Autumn. The first CD even reminds me of that album! The second disc starts off slow and builds up toward the end. You here Cocteau Twins just about a 3rd of the way through the CD, then the relexation starts to build with more of a beat. There is a lot going on in the 2nd disc with the passive progressiveness. The disc end with the classic Underworld Full mix of Kool Kids of Death.

The 3rd and final disc does not play around. You have a lot of electronic trance mixed with progressive house with a more serious beat. Jimmy Van M has taken it up a notch. I do not remember the tracks on here, but there are a couple I heard on other compilations as well.

Jimmy Van M has balanced the series and this certainly must be a purchase. 3CD's is a lot to digest, but worth the time. Jimmy has put a lot of effort into this. The end result is having rave reviews.

Jimmy understands the balance!!!

Disc#1 is ok if you in to relaxing, very down tempo music. Disc#2 had some promising artists and contains some good tracks. Both 2 stars.

Disc#3 is in my opinion a compilation that truly belongs in the Balance Series. It reminded me somewhat of Balance 5 (in my opinion the best progressive album ever). Very smoothly mixed and great tracks! 5 stars.

So less is more, I think 3 CD's is just to much. And after listening the #3 I do not think I will soon be listening to the other two again.

But for Disc#3 this is definitely worthwhile buying.

Very interesting mixes. Lot's of up'n'downs = build-ups and drops. Floating at times. Great full sound. Great catch for that price from the BALANCE Series !!
