Nick Bradey I can only echo the sentiments already
expressed .These annual compilations
are always worth checking out . I always
discover new bands leading to getting
as many of the source albums as I can .
The only limit is money!

DJ Home Movies Cuneiform curates some of the best jazz bands I've heard in a while. For those needing a generous compilation of some wondrous and splendid jazz of all different takes and styles (from crazy freeform to somber chambers), this release hits all points in which one, if not all tracks, will stick with you well. I highly recommend picking this up, even if you think you're not much of a fan of such arts. Favorite track: The New Fragrance [from 'TILT'].

Sven B. Schreiber Carsten Pieper and M.Foujita already purchased it - high time for me to follow in their footsteps. As every year, this is a highly welcome and inspiring collection of great new stuff, issued by one of the best labels for innovative music on this planet. Favorite track: The Echoes of Their Cries [from 'Hoping Against Hope'].

Carsten Pieper Another sampler clearly proving the label's claim about the "adventurous, boundary-bursting music". If you're in the slightest interested in math rock, jazz, prog rock, modern bigbands, RIO or avantgardistic stuff in general this is highly recommended! Favorite track: The New Fragrance [from 'TILT'].
