Product Description

CD Description

No other music has held such revolutionary possibility as hip-hop and to celebrate 30 years of this innovative genre Ministry of Sound brings you the latest instalment in our epic Anthems series. The inspirational pioneers of this unique culture are all present on this essential release that begins with classic club anthems from artists such as Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, Dr Dre, Cypress Hill and Gang Starr. Moving into the second CD you have a incredible array of lyrical genius from the names that took hip-hop from the underground to the mainstream with likes of the legendary 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Nas and the almighty Wu-Tang Clan. This anthology is summarised with a taste of where the scene has developed into the modern era with a collection of number one smashes that still blow up the dance floors across clubs worldwide. Kick back and educate yourself in a sound that is breaking more barriers and reaching an ever-wider audience than ever before and still to this day.

I have to be honest, I was wary of this CD. In the past, I have reviewed other imports from our British cousins of "compilations" of not only hip-hop but goth, rap and rock and roll here in America on Amazon.com. They all have fallen short by placing a few songs from the correct genre then putting songs that aren't even close to what was part of the original intent of the package. Well, my Amazon friends, this is a home-run, a touchdown, a score and a goal all wrapped up into one musical box - the good folks a Ministry of Sound Recordings have put together a surprisingly well-documented and just plain great catalog of some of the highlights of hip-hop over the last 25 years.

I could sit here and describe every track, but as it's a compilation I'll say this - to be honest, this is one of the better hip-hop compilation CD's I've had the pleasure to listen to in a long time.

We go from founding members Run-DMC to Kool Moe Dee, and from Snoop Doggy Dogg to the eternal classic love song to hip-hop titled "Used To Love H.E.R." by Chicago rapper Common Sense (later shortened to Common). I listened with glee as KRS-One, Cypress Hill, Big L & Jay-Z mixed it up with Dr. Dre and Nas and Xzibit.

Now my only negative comments about this 3 CD set are minor, but important - they seemed to run out of steam towards the end of the 3rd CD and threw in club style songs like Flo Rida's "Low," T.I.'s "Dead and Gone" and J-Kwon's "Tipsy," which to me are not "anthems" of hip hop - they are good songs, but not "classics" and considering the previous 25-plus tracks proceeding it, it's kind of an insult to the others included that such light stuff was left for the finale.

4.0 out of 5 stars some good songs, most great songs 27 Oct 2011
By rockrit
Format:Audio CD
Having bought this to diversify my rap and hip-hop music base, I waited patiently until it arrived, and when it did, i listened to the whole thing from Track 1 to Track 54. It is, simply put, Gold. I have not had the time to familiarize myself with all of the tracks, but I already have my new favourites.

It starts strong, With Walk this Way, Can I Kick It? and It takes Two, before moving deeper into the annals of Hip Hop before arriving at Peter Piper by Run-DMC, which is a refreshing break from the somewhat repetitive mix of Hip Hop disc one presents.
Disc Two presents a huge change of pace with the song from Dr. Dre & 2Pac to start things off - with California Love, followed by Snoop Dogg's 'Who Am I?' and Cypress Hill's 'Insane in the Brain'.

Disc Three is even better, with the very catchy Hard Knock Life and Wu-Tang Clan's Gravel Pit to start things off, followed by the fast, heavy flow of 'Ante Up'. The heavy beats continue with Nas''Get Ur Self a....'and Xzibit's 'X', followed by a change of pace from Dead Prez 'Hip Hop'and 'Harder Than You Think'from Public Enemy. The disc finishes strong, with the head-warping bass of 'Tipsy', and eventually coming to an end with 'Dead and Gone' a fitting end to the aptly named compilation of Anthems.

This CD has opened my eyes to the history and diversity of Rap and Hip Hop as a genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 26 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Not being a particular fan of modern Hip-Hop, I bought this CD after hearing some of the albums tracks. It's a brilliant resource of classic Hip-Hop hits from the early origins, in my opinion the Golden Era. A must have for any music fan!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Leaven Ruins the Lump! 20 Dec 2011
Would have given this five stars if it wasn't for the last three songs on this album. How can you put rappers/entertainers such as Flo-Rida and T.I with true artists/groups such as BDP, Big L, Kool G Rap, Wu-Tang etc. Last three songs stopped this from being a really good compilation album. I get what they're trying to do by going from old to new school, and putting modern day rappers in with the old school cats; but why not get some good modern rappers on here, like Reks or Immortal Technique or something? Flo-Rida T.I. ain't even real Hiphop - erase these guys from this comp and you've got a dope album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to hip-hop... 12 Mar 2011
By Colin Mccartney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
...mine was John Barnes' rap on New Order's "World in Motion".

OK so I'm kidding about JB, but if like me you're the type of person who's always had an interest in, or an appreciation of, rap music without ever really holding it close to your heart then this CD is for you. It covers a broad base, not all of which I would call "anthemic", personally, although the likes of "Walk This Way" and "Jump Around" are the exceptions that prove the rule.

The overriding flavour is distinctively - though not exclusively - east coast USA. Bitter bling-merchants of the ilk of "Fiddy" Cent are wisely given a body-swerve in favour of a largely more fun and/or uplifting selection.

Certainly there are faults - even to a rap outsider (me), for example Kool Moe Dee's surely had better moments than "Go See the Doctor"? There are notable omissions as well - no Kanye, no Stereo MCs, no Beastie Boys, no Stetsasonic, no Ice-T, no Ultramagnetic MCs, no Mantronix and no "White Lines"...all of which would have fitted in with the spirit of this otherwise very well put together compilation. But hey, I'll leave the quibbling to the over-fussy chin-strokers in their box-fresh Adidas. Seriously though, this collection is probably not one for the purists (who I suspect will have all, or at least all they are interested in, on here already anyway), though nor does it (I hope) insult their intelligence.

Overall, MoS's "Anthems" series is plugging the gap left by the sorely missed "Mastercuts" compilations of the 1990s. This one's for anyone who likes the idea of hip-hop but never had the motivation to endure a whole NWA album. It contains many pointers for future listening.
