Dreamlab is the brainchild of producer Paul Buono and Eric Nordhoff in partnership with underground group Fire 4 U. Mixed in Helsinki, Finland it is a 10-track mix of original and well known songs done in an electronic style. The gentler moments here like the closing "'Song To The Bride" work well with the more four-to-the-floor tracks like "Fire Of Love" and "Deep Calls To Deep". 'Club Revival' is, thankfully, not segued together which allows each piece of music to be appreciated for what it is and despite the difficulty in producing a coherent album within such a genre, Buono and friends appear to have pulled it off. My main criticism would be that some of the more trance-oriented material here still sound cheesily dated, notably "Let Us Come Before Him". But there is much to offer fans of a style of music which is woefully neglected by the Christian music scene, particularly the American one. I'm just off to get my glowsticks!
