Covering more than a decade of recording - Sy's first album 'Metropolis' was released in 1995 - this compilation covers a lot of ground and manages to still be interesting unlike some dance music that now sounds really dated. Sy, who is today based in the USA and is best known as a speaker particularly targeting those in need of sexual healing, presents here some truly great loops and rhythms, lyrics from the heart and some incredibly catchy melodies that have stood the test of time. The album covers a lot of ground, from the links between biology, theology and neurology - "In My Head" - modern lifestyles and values - "Beautiful People Acting Ugly", "Jet Set", "Media Slaves" - moving on to personal struggles with desire and rejection - "Can I Get a Witness" and "One Of The Boys" - and finishing looking at God's character - "Judge Of The Earth", "Faces" and "Oasis". If you like your dance music on the poppy side with the occasional touch of grunge guitar this is definitely worth getting hold of.
