AllMusic Review by

Trance DJ John Graham, known to the masses as Quivver, was chosen to helm Kinetic Records' fifth entry in the Transport series. Mixing together some of the hottest tracks from his live performances, Quivver shows a remarkable talent for letting his mixes blend and flow with no audible effort. The music is always changing, always revolving, never relying on the same sounds or samples for longer than a minute. It is this effort that not only keeps the music interesting, but makes it incredibly dancefloor-friendly. No track truly stands out; the album works as a single entity more than a collection of songs. It has its dips and high points; for example, Quivver's own "Boz Boz" is strategically placed as the centerpiece to one of the album's most frantic points to bring everything back to the dancefloor. The end of the disc may be the best part, with Stephanie K. and John Creamer's "I Love You" serving as a wild, sonic beast tearing through the music like a shark. The ever-mutating sounds and samples revolve around the beat with a charming inconsistency that brings the proceedings to an appropriate close. Transport 5 continues in the vein of the previous entries in the series, showcasing an underrated DJ and bringing an excellent trance mix to the masses.
