    So I'm listening to Made of Gold and I'm kinda surprised. Cool sound! I didn't know what to expect having not known any of their songs besides Sweet Sweet Sweet and it's 2006 remix.

    v you can listen to some of their best of to start :-) You have a cd best of their 2000's releases on "do you dreams come true?" (coupled with an original album, but it's not their best one IMO). For their older releases (1988 to nearly 2000) you can listen to their best "THE SOUL". For their original albums for the moment my fav' are MAGIC, LOVE UNLIMITED and AND I LOVE YOU.

    v they should have... it's sad that an awesome group like them is so ignored in the occident. Anyway, the new single is going to be awesome. Can't wait to hear the three new tracks.

    The one thing I can say about DCT is that they know how to close out a song. Every one of their best tracks has an amazing ending to it.
