This is a 3 disc compilation that features tracks of many types of electronic dance music. After The Prodigy's Omen, the tunes are predominantly drum and bass, and good drum and bass too (especially the High Contrast remixes). This then changes on Benga and Coki's dubstep hit "Night" and house and garage is introduced to the CD.

So it sounds like the perfect compilation right? Near flawless track selection, a wide range of music genres and all the beats and the bass you could ask for in a compilation.
But think again, the mixing of the tracks on the first CD is embarrassing. I really want to hope that they were high when they did these mixes because there's vocals fighting against each other, bad key changes, and annoying chopper effects (notably at the end of Crazy World). The second and third CDs aren't much better regarding mixing, they consist of just fading in and out or throwing in a random tune after a crash.

To finish this, I'd just like to conclude that the track selection is good and this is still a good album to have on for some decent music. Unlike other MOS albums, this doesn't just have tunes that have been used a million times before. However, the people/person who mixed this should be embarrassed.

For better compilation series I recommend Fabric Live (for all genres) and the drum and bass arena CDs.

Addicted To Bass 2009, is a decent album.

It has 61 tracks over 3 hour long mixes. Those 3 mixes are mixed by The Wideboys, notable garage veteran's, who also do the KISS bass mix. That doesn't necessarily mean the mixing is good however.....

The first CD covers Drum N Bass for its first half, before going into fidget/electro house.
The Drum N Bass selection is pretty decent, and the pacing is spot on. However, there are a few rough mixes, the worst mixed being High Contrast's remix of Hometown Glory, being cued in, the vocals clash with that of the previous track, and being cued out, it slows right down for no real reason, as a hard crossfader slam brings in Benga & Coki's Night, the only dubstep track on the album. It then enters a fidget/electro house segment for its last half, with a few bits of garage which is very enjoyable, especially compared to the more serious electro today. 7/10

The second CD is prominently bassline. The pacing on this CD isn't as great as the first CD, however the track selection is acceptable. Also found are a few bits of electro house. There are no jarring edits here that I noticed, and overall its fairly enjoyable. 6.5/10

The third CD is more of a classics mix, featuring most of the genres already covered by the comp. The mix does struggle with tempo changes however, and its most notable in the transition to 21 Seconds, which is just awful. It also has some fresher cuts (well for the time at least) The mix has a good variety, and its fun but it is flawed. 6.5/10

Overall The album gets a 6.5/10. It's a decent start for the series, and its enjoyable even to this day. Just don't expect your mind to be blown.

Additional note: Check out the booklet for an advert for a Ministry Of sound Fragrance. You will either laugh or cry. Or do both, like I did.

I bought the first one of these probably about 5 years ago when Puretone was a big hit, and it was spot on then. I guess there's not been a huge amount of new material since then which is probably why there was no cash in follow up, but seems like there is now!!

The new Prodigy single, some wicked drum & bass tunes, if you like that High Contrast sound, and a cd of the old skool classics. Pretty good, only 4 stars for me as I don't like the bassline thing very much, and cd2 can get a bit annoying.

otherwise though, it's absolutely brilliant, a great round up of loads of new mixes and tracks i'd only heard on radio...

superb!

Its been 7 years since the last installment of MoS' Addicted To Bass compilation... So what's changed? Well for a start, in line with a lot of Ministry's new releases there are 3 cd's whereas before there were just 2. As a result (and this is true of many 3 cd releases) the quality of the track listing has taken a big hit - particularly so in this album's case...
What about the content? Tripe to be fair. The 1st two cd's start with what sounds like a young child's voice presenting "Ministry of Sound's Addicted To Bass" and then exclaiming "Wideboy". How very reassuring. If I'm honest some of the tracks aren't half bad, with mostly thumping, pulsating bassline throughout however, what good tracks there are have been destroyed by what can only be described as mixing from the "fading in and out" school of dj'ing. A fair few of MoS cd's are computer mixed, but it doesn't seem like they've even bothered with that for this compilation!! Some tracks fade out and jar annoyingly into the next, some make an attempted transition but fail due to change of key and tone and others just finish and allow another track to start. This really does ruin what could have been an acceptable album. Totally unforgivable to release this, the quality is incredibly low. So 1 star for the pulsating bass and good variety of tracks, but it could've scored so much more if it weren't for the dire production.
