    (Noote: The original CD has tracklisting errors. The third track on CD1 is Lauschgoldengel, and the final track on CD2 is Gebrünn Gebrünn. (+ is the "and"-symbol on last.fm.))

    Finally, Sasha has released his (yearly?) compilation CD. Recorded June 24th in the famous club Avalon in Los Angeles, it is an example of the sound that represents Sasha in 2006. Forward-thinking as he always is, this CD is the result of a brand new concept called "Instant Live", in which the CD is recorded live and then burned on CDs instantly after the actual gig, so that the audience can bring the recording home with them. Only 10 000 copies were made!
    While being an ingenious concept (especially for those who attended), it has its flaws. The equalizer levels as well as the volume levels are in some places totally wrong, and in the first song on CD2 the music stops (!), then starts again in a lower speed and key. On with my review:

    Ignore the first and the third track, they aren't really that exciting. …
