AllMusic Review by

DJ Manta, anonymous producers with an O.M.D. and Playstation fixation, are probably best known for remixing Liquid Child and releasing their own "Holding On" Gatecrasher hit. With 2001's Love Parade staple Music Will Bring Us Together, however, the emergence of an enthusiastic, non-attritional trance-flare for a scene bred on distracted human connection is squandered by the same dance community's irresponsible regurgitation of technique -- matching over-romantic synths, the co-option of ABBA's "Lay All Your Love on Me" instead of "Maid of Orleans" -- producing with the chops of an uninventive parent who's discovered a way to make his baby smile and sticks with it long after the kid is off trying to wear a can of Lincoln Logs as a hat.
