Nick Warren, Balance 018 review

Balance 018, mixed by Nick Warren is the best Balance mix to date.

At Spadang, we must confess to not always rating the Balance series as highly as others. Sorry about that!

Jimmy Van M's outing was good, and Balance 10.1 was superb. Timo Maas also did a good job. But some of the others impress less. But Nick Warren is a favourite here and Balance 018 really delivers all the things we love.

Staring with disc 1, and you are treated to some smooth tunes that build into a really likeable ending. It really works!

Disc 2 is a bit tougher again, but still nice and tuneful, with a bit of melody here and there.
All in all, Balance 018 is a good mix and the best Balance so far.

If you are undecided about grabbing a copy, we urge you to do so. It's very good.
