    I think both, that's how these things work these days aint it? You can definitely buy them separately.

    It's the first time MOST of the tune has been available digitally. It's missing the eerie intro (which most never play anyway). Hopefully it's a sign of Prototype back cat to come (as rider said he was going to do it!).

    There's a lot of filler on this album though.

    EDIT: I say filler but what I mean is there's a lot of music that's already digitally available. It's like there's some limited pool of tracks that compilation owners can dip into (much like the UK Garage compilation scene).

    Completely agree. Most of the track list can be found on virtually any DNB/Jungle comp from the last 20 years. Casino Royale? Again? Still, nice Calibre bit on there which I ain't got.

    I would have preferred Rider to do a mix with a load of obscure dubs from the 90's that he used to cain! Make it a single track mix. Then again the compilation people wouldn't have liked that!

    Fuck compilations :)

    without the beatless part that is. You know the first 40+ seconds? It starts from the first beat.

    alien girl digitally has also been on the 18 years of Drum & Bass arena compilation, also at 6:07 with no intro.

    first time I've been able to get a decent version of da base II dark tho!
