AllMusic Review by

Christopher Lawrence's second mix for Moonshine, United States of Trance, is fairly similar to his other mixes for the label. Rather than spin tracks by many of the style's leading producers of the time, like Cass & Slide or Tilt, Lawrence goes with relatively unknown producers like Prizm & Eclipse ("Genesis"), Skynet UK ("Holdin' On"), and Manhattan ("Psychomaniacs"). The result is rather homogenous -- not much differentiates the tracks from one another, similar to how not much differentiates this mix from Lawrence's myriad other mixes. There are plenty of intense buildups and layers upon layers of trippy synthesizer riffs. It's what you've come to expect from Lawrence.
