Oui 3 were unique. Lumped in with Jamiroquai and the Stereo MCs, this groundbreaking act deserved much, much better. Thankfully this compilation has helped redress the balance.
Alongside all the singles and two big hits - their anthemic take on 'For What it's Worth' and the remarkably fresh-sounding 'Break from the Old Routine' - five previously unreleased gems are included (taken from their unreleased second album), with the remainders drawn from their debut 'Oui Love You'. The range of genres successfully tackled by Oui 3 is simply awesome. Dub ('Arms of Solitude'), acid jazz ('Schemer Supreme'), daisy age ('Reason to Believe')...it's all here. In Trevor Miles, the group not only had one of the first major British rappers to rap in a London accent (Mike Skinner take note), but also an enormously talented and intelligent lyricist. I doubt many writers would be able to slip in 'segmented social purgatory' so effortlessly into a song as Miles has managed on 'Reason to Believe' By contrast, the previously unheard cuts demonstrate a much harder musical edge, with the late ex-Bow Wow Wow/ Adam and the Ants guitarist Matthew Ashman making an outstanding contribution to tracks like 'Caring 90s', and a surprise cover of PiL's 'Rise'. Elsewhere, Blair Booth's vocals positvely shine on the excellent 'I Come in Peace' and her mournful Ashman tribute 'You Can't Do That For Me'.
Were Oui 3 ahead of their time? Well, there's a line about halfway through 'For What it's Worth'. It rings, 'The just war is latest trend/ But let this good things come to an end'. Ladies and gentlemen, I rest my case.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Nov. 2007
Format: Audio CD
I have to agree with the review of "A Customer" that Oui 3 were unique and should have had a longer and brighter success.

You may remember them from the big singles "Break From The Old Routine" and "For What It's Worth", which give you just a taster of the diverse Oui 3 sound. Most of the singles, such as "Crazy", were all pretty bright, jazzy pop, but among them you get a few musical twists, such as the Jah Wobble-influenced "Arms Of Solitude", and a darker more guitar-driven edge on some of the second-album tracks such as the absolutely brilliant "Stand Defiant".

For a while this kind of music has been a bit out of fashion and it could be said that some of the tracks are very much dated to the mid-1990s. But Oui 3 were a great band and this CD is a great way to get pretty much their entire output, including otherwise unreleased tracks, on one bargain CD.

Oui 3 - The Collection 23 Feb. 2007
By Dorlon A. Peckham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Without a doubt, this is one of the finest collections of music and musicianship ever produced. To hear the magic, get a pair of headphones and be ready to be "blown away."
