Product Description

A retrospective salute to some of the biggest anthemic hits from a generation of dance. Encompassing sixteen years of Ministry Of Sounds history as the most famous, enigmatic and influential super club in Europe, Ministry Of Sound have pulled together a veritable collection of the biggest tracks that have made musical history on their famous dance floor. Reflecting the special quality of every one of the tracks contained within the album, ANTHEMS will be complemented with a unique booklet package, containing an overview of three distinct periods in the clubs history written by the founder of Ministry Of Sound, Justin Berkman, former MIXMAG editor Dom Philips, and current Ministry Of Sound online editor Tom Kihl. Plus memories and comments from luminaries of the scene such as Ministry Of Sounds first resident DJ Jazzy M, Radio 1 Dance legends Pete Tong and Dave Pearce, international superstar DJ Paul Oakenfold, the grand-pen of the dance world writer Bill Brewster, and many more against each and every track - explaining their connection with the track and a uthenticating its legendary status. Backed up by a collection of high quality images from the most renowned photographers in the business, from the early heady days of Ibiza, through to rave, garage, hip hop and electro, plus a highly stylized beautiful advert involving a brushed life size brushed metal Ministry Of Sound logo portcullis, and ANTHEMS is not only one of the most powerfully hit stacked albums of all time, but will go down in history as an absolute must have collectors item for any dance fan whatever their age.

The TV advert appeared for this album the other day. The narrator stated..

"Remember why you loved Ministry of Sound..."

I had to think for a minute. And then said to myself "Yes I do. I loved it for the club it was in the early 90's, and 2 amazing leather-backed albums in 1995 and 1996". However, only about 10% of this album represents the club, and any house themed session that was "how we all remembered it".

I guess in a way I'm arguing against a losing battle that brands like MoS are winning - its Christmas time, so lets cash in from the teens and make them think 'this is how it was'. Now surely an album that claims to 'make us remember' why we loved it back in the day would have the tracks we all lost it to and the dance floor. In all my experience of Friday and Saturday nights early in the morning, I've never had the embarrassment of hearing a DJ drop "Sandstorm - Darude" (after 1999, that is....) and to even call 'It Just Won't Do' or 'Lazy' anthems is pathetic. The DJ would be egged!

What actually makes this album different from any other this year? Or the past 5 years for that matter? MoS released 'Trance Nation Classics' a few months ago... the track-listing un-surprisingly familiar. Do I even need to mention the "usual suspects" that have been worn out?

9pm - ATB
Sandstorm - Darude
Saltwater - Chicane
Born Slippy - Underworld

I don't even see how they can put a song like 'Born Slippy' onto a modern day album. No-body of a young generation will understand or appreciate it - it was released in a time when taking an E or Acid was perfectly normal, and the fantastically worked lyrics show what went through the mind of someone in a tube going home from a club.

2.0 out of 5 stars Naff 19 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have to aggree with most of the others, Most of the songs are good all round classics but its jst not any different to the albums they have released in the past.
Its not worth the money as if you look hard enough in your CD collection you probably have them all already

2.0 out of 5 stars Yo Ministry time to change the tunes man! 17 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
What is it with Ministry of Sound that every time they release an anthem it has got nearly the same type of tracks on it as the one they realest the last time? I'm not for one minute saying that the dance music on this CD is bad, but all I am saying is that I think it's about time Ministry of Sound produced something different IE used different tracks with there Anthems instead of just releasing the same tracks but in a different fancy box just to make money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Same old content! 10 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
All of these tracks have been released numerous times by MoS in classics CDs and although they are mostly good tracks they cant just keep releasing similar products with only different names and covers. Mos know they have market monopoly and know that whatever they put together will sell so they do not need to bother. To put simplym just by a different compilation album such as Trance nation vol. 3.

They keep on coming as with all these albums you get quite a few tracks you don't want/like but none the less a good CD with good music with the advent of downloads perhaps the life of these compilation albums is limited.!!??

By Duckju
Format:Audio CD
Loved listening to all the old tunes,it put all the tunes on 3 discs which replaces a lot of music that I had lost... as lets face it, it's better than most of today's dance music....Great for exercises, walking or knocking down an outhouse....very energising...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album for the summer!!
These songs are perfect for during the summer, as they are very lively! I have many favourites, although some of the others sound a bit repetitive. Would recommend to everyone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Anthems II
A good cd with some tunes to keep you going but if you are looking for the "big anthems" then get disc II.

Still good for the gym :)

Ministry Of Sound need to employ a new tune selector because everytime they release a new album it is the same songs being repeated over again. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but not as good as thought
Thought would be great but disappointed, haven't got through full album before turning off before finished. Some classic sounds.
