AllMusic Review by

While the previous volume of the enormously popular CD series ULTRA DANCE featured a selection of tracks by hotshot Euro trance spinner and remix artist DJ Encore, Vol. 3 features two disc's worth of hot dance tracks put together by Johnny Vicious. It's an endlessly percolating smorgasbord of sounds, as eclectic as it is danceable. It's safe to say that when Don Henley recorded his evergreen hit "The Boys of Summer," he never expected the contemplative rock ballad to be turned into a dance smash, but that's exactly what's happened here, as the song is presented in an evocative version by DJ Sammy. More traditional dance fare is offered with such cuts as the Narcotic Thrust mix of Cassius's "Sound of Violence" and the sexy, neo-electro "Sweet Dreams" via Eddie Baez and Effi.
