Twistedsoul Great music for a very worthy cause.Production is top notch, and the project as a whole is more than ear worthy. One of my favourite albums of the year, and a must for real music lovers. Favorite track: Music Is The Healing Force Of The Universe (feat' Earl Zinger & Valerie Etienne).

Dillon Ethier If the music weren't great, it would still be worth pitching in for the cause. Fortunately, the music IS great! Groovy jams galore. Favorite track: Fire (feat' Collocutor & Finn Peters).
