Most of these tracks i already owned, but it can't hurt to hear them again as a compilation. The inclusion of David Gray after the label dropped him in the early days seems needless, especially as some great acts to have graced the label are not included, such as u-ziq and luke haines as a solo artist. The choice of song to represent each artist also seems a little strange, since most choices are obvious (placebo-nancy boy, embrace-good people), whereas the pumpkins, verve and richard ascroft are represented by lesser known tracks (i am one, history, brave new world). However, the real highpoints of the album are the new tracks, especially by The Music and Crackout. Add this to the inclusion of McAlmont & Butler's Yes, one of the most brilliant tracks that I ever completely forgot about, and you have a pretty fine little compilation for mid-price.
