In reply to Dsubbb:
The difference between what you call “mixable tracks” and tracks that are shorter in length is the Unmixed version. Usually theres two releases of every album: 1. The “Mixed by…” album and the “Unmixed.” The unmixed is the one with the original mixes that your searching for. I didn’t know this for the longest time as I’m an avid music downloader these days, however now that I’ve experienced both, I think it’s important to have both the mixed and unmixed versions. I don’t dj, but I find myself wanting the original, full length tracks of certain songs I hear and love. A long, continuous, mixed album is also nice when you want to hear a dj’s ‘mixing skills.’
Bottom Line- get both in the future. They’re both valuable.

WOW! This album is gorgeous. The sounds are diverse, but much of the music honestly takes me back to the late 90's, when Underworld and Orbital were on my stereo constantly. It does so without sounding dated.
Listening to this album gave me the same feeling as listening to John Digweed's first GU album years and years ago. That nice, clean, relaxed vibe that is so rare to come by today.
Fresh, enjoyable, relaxing, and far less irritating than much of the electro-crap that's out right now. Music that energizes without annoyance. Strongly recommended!
Not a Mix Friendly Compilation...
I purchased this thinking that I would be adding to my collection of music to DJ. I thought there was supposed to be 29 stand alone "tracks." However, the tracks are not the full length tracks and are just slices pulled directly from the mix. They're not really useful for mixing.
The mixes appear to be fine, but the tracks just being slices from the mix was big let down for me. I purchased this specifically for the purpose of mixing the individual tracks. I would not have made the purchase if it was just a mix.
I feel I was a bit misled.
I'll be sure to read reviews of compilations like this in the future.

Second continueous album stops 1 minute into track. This seems to be a problem with most of these tracks on Itunes these days.
Absolutely Stunning and Worth the Money
Jaytech and Jono Grant have done a wonderful mix here. "Marsh" by Solarity especially embraces the title of "Anjunadeep" tremendously in this mix album, purely deep and downbeat pace. "Devotion" by Maor Levi also brings a wonderful deep/techno house to the crowds withs its hard electronic beats and deep tempo. I hope more mixes like this will come and be just as terrific. If you wish to hear full versions, I suggest buying their unmixed album version, where I believe people can hear these tracks in their prime.
Been listening to this thing for over 2 months now none stop and its still awesome!! Best album of 2011!
Great music...Individual tracks they are not!
The music is 5 stars yet I give it three starts because the individual tracks are slices from the mix not stand alone tracks. They can not be used for DJing which is very dissappointing. I wish I knew this before purchasing.
I ADORE the previous two volumes of this series. After previewing this one all the way through I was not impressed, however despite this I decided to trust the many glowing reviews here and buy it anyway. Having now listened through several times it's still... dull. Not awful, there's definitely some good talent on this album, but the tracks are mostly lifeless compared to the numerous gems you'll find on 01 and 02. There are some high points like 'Coastal', 'Algebra', 'All Those Loose Things', 'Japanese Schoolgirls' and 'The Sleeping Beauty', but they're fewer and not as addictive as the ones on the two previous volumes.
If you agree with my review after previewing this for yourself then trust me, just buy the individual tracks you like best.
As a regular Anjunabeats listener, I don't often make purchases from Anjunadeep, although I am blown away by the album as a whole. With Brotherhood, All Those Loose Things and Djembe as the gemstones, this is an absolute necessity for Anjunadeep aficionados.
As near to perfect as you can get
Simply the best of the Anjunadeep series - just never lets up, and never lets you down.
