Vol. 3-Nude Dimensions

To be fair, the disc is not terrible. But it is also not a Nude Dimensions set. The first two editions had a smooth, danceable r & b flavor. And this disc, while still house, has a completely different, less focused sound. The one song I thought would be a sure thing was Central Living's "Everyday." Naked Music NYC plays a loop of this track on their website - and the loop has a very Nude Dimensions sound. Unfortunately, the producers of this disc went with a different mix. The result is adequate - but the sound - well, its just not Nude Dimensions. As for the rest of the lineup, nothing comes close to the highlights from the first two volumes. Tracks like "Always," "Pure," "Breakin' it Down" and "That's Why I'm Here" are nowhere to be found on this edition.
The real test : if this were volume 1, would there have been a volume 2 and 3? The answer, I believe, is no. This disc really isn't special enough to warrant more.
Listeners who are new to house or whose primary exposure has been from Naked Music may want to dig back into this genre's history to see where it all started. That's not to belittle what Naked Music has done... I still think they put out some of the best *music* of all the dance labels; tracks that can stand alone on their own merit, and it's fantastic to see them branching out and touching on genres that were absent from previous mixes. It keeps the mix fresh throughout, as opposed to hearing the same beat and same type of music the whole way through. This is one of the few CDs that I've listened to recently that held my attention throughout its entirety.
Soul Patrol's "Keep It Country" contains euphoric undertones and exceptionally well-placed samples, melting gracefully into the Weekender Mix of Jersey Street's "Step Into The Light", which is a song that's quite representative of what has become referred to as the Naked Sound. Sleek disco house with soulful vocals, fantastic basswork, synths that seem to float out of a dream, and percussive layers that keep you moving.Read more ›

This series is the epitome of smooth, elegant, sexy deep house. Should be listened to with the lights down low and the volume up high.Published on January 11, 2007 by Luis C. Garza
This may not be as deep as vol.1 & 2, but you can't go wrong with a naked music realease that features Lisa Shaw, Miguel Migs and Blue Six. Overall very enjoyable.Published on September 29, 2006 by Multiplex

Understandably, No. 3 was always going to have a huge task ahead of it, what with Mauricio Avilles showing the competition how it's REALLY done on Naked's 2nd installment. Read morePublished on July 20, 2005 by Charlie Delite
