3.0 out of 5 stars A Good one... October 9, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Global Underground is probably one of the finest record labels around. Travelling the World with today's top DJ's, GU brings to every electronic music lover the best sets around. "New York" is Global Underground's second release of Paul Oakenfold and unfortunately this one is not as powerful as "Paul Oakenfold's Live in Oslo". The whole world knows how good Oakenfold is and this set proves it, despite its lack of energy (in my point of view). As always, the set is mixed with absolute perfection...smooth, really smooth, but the set as a whole is full of highs and lows. I mean, some of the tracks are not strong enough to keep you dancing all the time...there is not that unstoppable trance feeling in this one. If you want trance you'll find it only in the final tracks of cd 2 and in Paul Oakenfold's Live in Oslo release (this one is really hot). If you want to dance hard, don't consider this one .If you want to listen to a perfectly mixed set with tracks from different styles (jungle, breakbeat, some house and some trance), this one's for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mind-blowing experience November 3, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is GREAT stuff. I DARE someone to start the second side of this album and not play it all the way through. The first side is good, The second side alone is worth the price. The Global Underground Series, in a time where there seem to be 100's of electronica CD's coming out weekly all under different headings, consistently churns out the cream of the crop. Like some of the most reputable brand-names out there(Coke, Sony, Amazon.com)when this organisation launches someone (Nick Warren, Sasha, Dave Seaman)they don't miss. Paul Oakenfold is at the top of their list. The CD is edgy, reflective, energetic, and an all-around bang-up job. AND that's juss the first song Inside Your Arms. This is a musical tour-de-force. If you bought Departures you must have this. This CD will blow that away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oakey Delivers August 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Paul Oakenfold's Global Underground 007: New York, now a classic in dance music complilations, is truly one of the superstar's better efforts. Whilst his recent CD releases have left many fans dissapointed, this Global Underground mix (along with his classic anthem-filled stomper "Tranceport") is one that his devoted fan base can look back on with pride.
The first disc is filled with slick, dreamy textures with some dreary overtones that make you feel as if you were walking home in the rain after a long hard day. Jamie Meyerson's ethereal vocals in "Rescue Me", Followed by the steady, smooth atmospherics of Taste Experience's "Summersault", marks the starting point of where the mind leaves the body and takes its journey. From there, the stream of consciousness is lead silkily through to Lustral's Lovely "Everytime" and Miro's "Paradise", Finally leading to Three Drives' "Greece 2000", an anthemic light at the end of a dark aural tunnel.
The second Disc, in contrast to disc 1's worldy cold sound, takes you into a warm world of sonic euphoria. Junk Project's "Composure" is a truly stunning work, both musically and in the effects it may have on its listeners. Led on with his signature grace and finesse, you will find yourself lost in Oakenfold's Personal touch up of Amoeba Assassin's "Rollercoaster", with swirling melodies comprised of sounds once thought to exist only in Heaven, and echoing vocals floating just atop of this wondrous environment of sounds. The journey ends with BBE's "Deeper Love (Symphonic Paradise)", a track whose explanation really goes no further than the title itself.
These two discs will take your mind many places. The question you have to ask yourself is : After experiencing life in Oakey's world, will you really ever want to come back?

5.0 out of 5 stars "Oakenfold is God" or is it the other way around?? September 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The New York (007) installment is the best of the Global Underground series. Diggers' Hong Kong is close, but no cigar. Paul shows the world with this cd that he is the best dj in the world. One must remember that this is not a club set, but selections that paul played in recent sets, so naturally it is not banging basslines for two hours. Granted it is not as fast paced as some other compilations but it delivers in an intimate way. It is as if paul is spinning for you alone, a private set that will stimulate your senses, and take you out of this realm as only truely good music can. The first disk is a nice example of melodic trance, nice and chillin, which shows off Oakey's flawless mixing. The highlight is the close with the beutifull and uplifting "three drives on vinyl." Then, the party starts. He kicks it off with some jungle flava, and begins to take you on a TRIP!! The dreamy breaks of talisman and hudson is unbeleivable, just when you think he is going to pick it up, he drops a slow trance/ break beat record, "Composure" that will blow your mind. The eight minute long intro is a fantastic way of preparing you for the trance journey that only oakey can take you on. Every second of this track will pull at you as the slow buildup prepares your mind and body to get up and dance. From there Oakenfold plays top notch trance each track building beautifully into the next, untill the climax which will leave your jaw dropping. This is the BEST dance release to date and compiled by the man of dance himself. This cd is what got me into dance, and i will never tire of it's intricacies and spine tingling euphoria. This is a must buy for any "techno" fan and for those who are not fans of electronic music, this album will convert you.
