Various Artists – [2010] netBloc, Volume 30: Aldartea

Exceptional pop compilation. Outstanding quality from start to finish in 12 tracks.

I’ll directly pass the microphone to the curator:

The netBloc series is my humble attempt to shine some light on music that truly deserves to be heard by as many people as possible.

And this is exactly what he has accomplished with (as of 2018) just over 50 compilations that show the potential of netaudio culture, both in breadth and depth. It’s almost unfair to select among those, but I have my routines:

No Bother by Traveling in Stereo does the alternative rock & roll thing quite well, delivering a catchy sing-along line.

Bird of Prey by Liam Stewart is the pop ballade finale of this compilation, setting an emotional farewell.
