Simply brilliant compilation. A lot of work's been done and many tracks on the album are actually PvD's re-works. Such tunes as Blank & Jones - Secrets & Lies, Lexicon 4 - Reach Me, David Forbes - Questions Must Be Asked sound much better in PvD's versions.
There are some great tunes on this album, the best one being Nu NRG 'Dreamland', but it there is a lot of really boring progressive-ish stuff on here as well. Personally, I like my music to be euphoric, energetic or groovy and a lot of the tracks on here don't fit into any of those categories. I respect PvD and this album hasn't made me think of him as any lesser DJ but I think you've got to be really into his sound to properly enjoy this album otherwise you'll just skip through to the best bits.
Well, it's always a matter of personal taste. For me this album was a milestone - since I've heard TPOD I started listening to different kinds of trance - more progressive, more melodic, and not only cheesy-uplifting like noted "Dreamland" (which is track that I really like, and was the main reason why I bought this CD). TPOD version of Ralphie B's "Massive" and original version of Mirco de Govia's "Epic Monolith" distinctively changed and shaped my music taste. And that's why second CD is my favourite here. But first CD opened my mind to more progressive, automatic, softly-mechanic and hypnotic club music. This kind of trance is maybe not so good to listening at home, as it can be boring when listened too long, but it's really good in club.
Paul van Dyk's first mix cd in years.. humm.. good enough? Overall, there are loads of great tunes there, especially in the end of the first cd (Autumn, Empire, Dreamland) and the start of the second (Massive, Epic Monolith). But before buying this watch out for the fact not every tune was put here as originally they were made. Paul van Dyk 'reworked' a lot of the tracks. And while this concept may look nice, reworking the tunes to make them fit together, it ended up a disaster. You must really like the typical PvD bassline and beat, because you'll hear it from the start 'till the end (especially in the second cd). Also, some reworks take off some energy from some tunes, like in Second Sun - Empire. It's a good cd for the sense that there are pretty nice tracks there, but the reworking thing just put me off. The middle part of the first cd is not so good, with some very commercial housy tunes. The only really special thing in this release is the end of that cd.
Sasha/Digweed left the trance scene before it got too formulaic and cheesy. They would never, ever include "Rapture" or U2's "Elevation" in a mix of theirs. There's a difference in the deep, dark progressive that Digweed, Sasha, Warren, Seaman and others were playing and the kind of cookie cutter accessible trance that PvD has been playing since the late 90s. Nowadays PvD is total garbage, he's 100% a commercial sellout.
LOL & LOLZORDZ. When "god" Sasha, a good friend of "uber-god" Digweed released his Involver, which main idea was at first remix all the track to make them fit together, everybody just sh***d their pants - "oh Sasha shows he's god again, oh what a briliant idea, oh he is a god of ableton, oh, oh, oh". But unfortunately "only-half-god" PvD released his very good mix album "TPOD" few years to early, before "real-god" Sasha released his very dull and boring "ableton remixed" mix album "Involver" followed by even more boring "In2volver" - and unfortunately it was to early for some people, who can accept something only when it was first tried by "real-gods" like Sasha. Is this what you anted to say mr paranoik20? I got a friend who dislikes all PvD mixes, especially TPOD, but loves everything that is touched by Sasha - because Sasha is a "real-god" and PvD is only a "half-god". Are you same kind of person? I hate that kind of fanboying. This is really good mix if someone likes this kind of trance - a mix of melodic, uplifting and progressive European trance. The idea was OK and it was used many times after PvD invented it (by Sasha, Alex MORPH on "Hands On Armada" and maybe even by AvB, but I can be wrong with him, because I don't remember on which mix). PvD was just the one who made it first. And I don't see anything wrong with it.

Politics of dancing is a great release, even though it is considered trance and progressive trance, there are some tracks that ar influenced by house and breaks. However I recommend it for those who think PVD is awesome.
