For those who don't have the original album and neither the cd singles this is a great opportunity to get all the hits plus 2 extended versions and 2 remixes.
Bomb the bass BOMBED the uk charts 20 years ago with hits like "don't make me wait", "beat dis" and "say a little prayer" ALL TOP 10 HITS and they are in this album together with their extended versions. What more u need ?

I want to give this a 5 star rating, but sadly I can't. You see, Bomb the Bass is a visionary artist in the underground dance scene, Tim Simoneon used this album as a way of almost single-handedly kick-starting the sampling era of music. While some may see this as a downgrade from live bands, when done properly it gives some excellent catchy tunes and is very reminiscent of early video game music. Indeed, MegaBlast (Hip Hop on Precinct 13) was used by the Bitmap Brothers in the game Xenon 2, and each iteration of the game had a different mix of the song to best use the machine's audio chips - this led to a unique mix of the track on Xenon 2 Megablast on the Amiga CDTV/CD32.
All Jet Set Radio fans owe a major debt of gratitude to Bomb the Bass. Without them, the works of Hideki Naganuma wouldn't have been possible.

However I can't give this 5 stars because not all of the tracks show the same high quality that would initiate the rise of sampling. Megablast Rap is a pretty standard rap track which doesn't make the best use of Tim's mixing, Dynamite Beats gets boring rather fast as does Hey You and Shake It.
Taken in context of a 14 track album, these four weak tunes are not so bad, especially when the (very) 90s flavoured early sampling classics of Megablast (Hip Hop on Precinct 13), Say A Little Prayer, Beat Dis and a 5 amazing remixes all boost this into an underground classic. Into underground dance music? If you don't have this album,you have a huge stonking gap in your collection.

One of the best hip-hop albums ever 13 Aug. 2014
By dj_bigbird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the best 10 hip-hop albums ever. The raps, samples and everything else on here are top notch. Yes, it's 26 yrs old, but the whole thing is great. Listen to the album as a whole and dig the progressions between tracks.

Great from beginning to end! 10 April 2013

If you don't mind a mind trip to back in the day, this is your CD.This CD was ahead of it's time in many ways in sound. Just give it a listen and you will realize what I am saying. With classic "Best Dis" to "Don't Make Me Wait" to a Burt Bacharach classic song "Say A little Prayer" all with extended mixes. It is a must have for any dance enthusist!
