AllMusic Review by

Released in association with the U.K. super club of the same name, Godskitchen: Pure Trance Classics is a triple-disc mix album of trance favorites from the previous two decades. While there's no doubt that this compilation fulfills its billing, including a lot of bona fide trance classics, many of the selections have been compiled time and time again over the years on similarly packaged albums by other U.K. super clubs such as Cream and Ministry of Sound. If you already have a bunch of classic trance compilations such as this in your collection, you should take a careful look at the track listing of Godskitchen: Pure Trance Classics to see how much of this material is familiar. For instance, B.B.E.'s "Seven Days and One Week," Darude's "Sandstorm," Paul van Dyk's "For an Angel," and Binary Finary's "1998" have been compiled hundreds if not thousands of times over the preceding couple decades. On the other hand, if you don't already have much of the material in this collection or don't mind the redundancy, Godskitchen: Pure Trance Classics is a great value. There are 19 tracks on each of the three discs, adding up to 57 tracks total, and they're mixed relatively well. Moreover, the album is priced at a mere ten pounds. Some of the marquee names found on Godskitchen: Pure Trance Classics include Deadmau5, BT, System F, Armin van Buuren, Faithless, Ferry Corsten, and Tiësto.
