Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Reunited at last, Creamfields brings Paul Oakenfold back to Cream's bosom. As always, Oakie doesn't disappoint, raiding his extensive vinyl collection to bring us stunning mixes of progressive and tech house with chilled melodic trance and breaks. In the mix are joints from John '00' Fleming, Tilt, Quivver, Young Parisians, and even U2. The tracklist has been selected and mixed by Oakenfold and includes exclusive cuts and mixes. This is the only Paul Oakenfold mix album that's available in 2004. It doesn't get any more essential. --Paul Eisinger

Product Description

The album draws on Paul's unique sound, mixing progressive & tech house flavours with cool melodic trance & breaks & is a significant part of the reunited story of Paul & Cream - which sees Paul embarking on a global tour headlining Creamfields events all over the world. The album is also a journey through Paul's staggering record box & is a slice of his current DJ sets. The track list features a number of exclusive remixes (in bold) but Paul has actually re-edited most of the tracks himself, so the entire album is an ensemble of 're-crafted' works! There are also some classics thrown in, with Creamfields 'diehards' recognizing some big Oakenfold / Cream favorites such as Sneaker's 'Scatterbomb' & Auranaut's 'People Want To Be Needed'.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only for disc one... September 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's not so much that my preference in music has changed so drastically in recent years but my love of techno had all but died, until now, due to redundant mixes, even by some of the best (Paul Oakenfold included). After doing some soundtrack scores for big movies I didn't even bother buying his last couple of albums as they sounded uninspired and tediously mediocre. It seemed to me like he was striving for a more mainstream audience while losing some hard-core fans in the process, but when he failed to gain the fame he might or might not have been seeking he apparently went back to his roots, and I thank my lucky stars for that! He's better off sticking to what he's good at, and that would be creating passion-driven atmospheres atop wicked beats that quickly get the blood pumping, making it extremely difficult to sit still for too long.

The melodies on disc one of 'Creamfields' are very melodic sounding with lush trance rhythms similar to his work heard on 'Tranceport' while disc two, albeit not as fulfilling or quite as addictive, features a lot more singing with shorter dance tunes, providing more of a club-friendly feel. Overall, though, I found this to be a satisfying record and can only hope that Paul Oakenfold continues his quest for greatness anew.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'new' nostalgia September 5, 2004
By C. Bowe
Format:Audio CD
Does this take anyone else back to a wilder, more free and uninhibited time? While the content is new, the feelings invoked while listening awaken something that has been dormant for a few years. Simply put, this is a great compilation. If you remember the days before hip hop blared out of clubs, or have ever hugged a complete stranger in a club for no reason at all - this compilation is for you. While I don't endorse hugging strangers, I do endorse this compilation - enjoy :)

5.0 out of 5 stars what a comeback September 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
when i bought this album i wasnt to sure about it. after bunkka and great wall i had lost most hope in Oakenfold. But listening to this has blown me away and put my faith back in one of the all time greats. disc 1 is a lot of smooth melodic trance. no harsh synths or choppy beats. just all great tracks with a nice groove. tracks like "i found you" "first sight" "clear blue" and "jump the next train" are all mindblowing tracks. very reminisent of 2000-2001 trance. disc 2 is one and the same. a little more upbeat but still very melodic and sweet groove tracks. tracks like " one day" "nice guys finish last" and "particle" are absoultely great songs. this album takes you back to a time when trance was pure. no hype and no pop-culture mouths to feed. out of all his albums id have to rate this 2nd only to tranceport. enjoy :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Oakie should stick to this kind of music February 15, 2005
By Josh
Format:Audio CD
Ok...so there's no Goa or Acid like in Fluoro and Voyage into Trance. Nor is there any hard trance or DnB like in Tranceport and the GU mixes. What we do have however, is probably one of the few "good mixes" Oakenfold has produced in quite a while. After a disappointing run with his recent slew of Perfecto label compilations, Oakenfold goes back to the basics, with smooth mixing , a superb tracklist, and the genre of music that truly defines Oakenfold as one of the top ten djs.

While some of the tracks are already rather dated, there is no filler in either of the cds, resulting in a very seamless mix, which is quite unusual for Oakenfold who tends to focus more on unique tracks than transitions.

If you're a fan of some of Oakie's earlier works, particular GU007 or Tranceport, you'll definitely want to pick up a copy of this.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a good collection of modern electronica September 1, 2004
By WadeL5P
Format:Audio CD
I've been an Oakenfold fan for many years and its nice to see him back on track. "Great Wall" was somewhat of a bore and became tired after a few short spins. I picked up a copy of "Creamfields" and it will stay in my CD player for quite some time. It's fresh, crisp and easy to get into. It's none of the hardcore stuff from Oakenfold's earlier years and some fans may not get into it. There nothing new or groundbreaking in the selections. It's just a solid mix of really good mainstream electronica. You can listen to it anytime and its perfect for partying or driving. I love it and would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluoro still in Oakenfold August 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
To all that aren't familiar with Oakenfold's rise to fame, he started out with the Perfecto Label in 1990. He then took a strange path to support goa trance, a risk which paid off at that time. After soon losing its luster, goa trance passed away, but it seems to have left a profound effect on Paul Oakenfold. It is with this that he starts off his double CD set, "Creamfields."

The first track sees matt Darey take a shot at the Perfecto of old, with a new track that has the chant similar to a track used by Oakenfold when performing one of his goa sets. The first disc, agreeing with the reviewers on this page, does take some time to develop, culminating its development at track five. "Clear Blue" sets up the beautiful "Como Tu," which Oakenfold has remixed for this album. Tilt makes its return to Oakenfold's decks with both "12" and "The World Doesn't Know." This isn't meant to leave out "Space Maneouvers Part 3," however I don't think this track is worthy of its name, mainly due to the fact that part one is a legend, and just does not remind me of its past history. Nonetheless, the first disc closes with a nice vocal "Jump the Next Train," and in a way keeps your mind intrigued as per Oakenfold's direction of disc two.

I should first mention that before I go into the description of disc two, I have almost all of Paul Oakenfold's works. From Fluoro, to Resident, to Journeys of Stadium DJ ('94), I have come to the understanding that his music is meant to uplift your soul. In many of his releases, his discs peak toward the ending, such as "Piledriver," "Imperpetua Mobilia," and "Delerium." What separates this second disc from all others is the constant peak time trance from track one to track 12.
