AllMusic Review by

The sixth Ultra Dance compilation from the model-lovin' Ultra label (so is this how all those jockish former schoolyard bullies get into dance music?) is split between Vic Latino and the Riddler, who present a set steeped in progressive house (with just a twinge of trance). As usual for the series, the emphasis is on the tracks, not the mixing skills, so each selection gets laid out for a few minutes before exiting. The blends between tracks are subtle, lasting a few seconds in most cases, and are rarely jarring. Notable inclusions come from Soul Central (their reworking of Derrick May's "Strings of Life"), Eric Prydz (the Steve Winwood-sampling "Call on Me"), the Lovefreekz (the Electric Light Orchestra-sampling "Shine"), Benassi Bros. ("Hit My Heart"), Dannii Minogue vs. Flower Power ("You Won't Forget About Me"), and Kevin Lyttle ("Turn Me On").
