Product Description

Product Description

The follow up to last year's over half million selling album, Ministry of Sound present 'Anthems II'. 3CDs filled with the best club classics of all time. Ministry of Sound have dug even deeper leaving no stone unturned making sure the second in the series more than lives up to its predecessor. Each track has been handpicked and only the finest quality dance anthems represent. Going back as far as 1991 with the likes of New Order & Orbital, in chronological order up until the latest smash from Eric Prydz's 'Pjanoo' the biggest anthems ever in dance also feature from Stardust, Faithless, Modjo, Livin Joy, Ultra Nate, D:Ream, Robert Miles and Daft Punk, to name just to name a few of the 60 tracks! An album representing clubbing history, this is Anthems II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly brilliant selection 17 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
Yes yes, Ministry of Sound put out plenty of albums, particularly classic ones, and seem to get plenty of flack in the reviews (!), but honestly this is brilliant. I was given Anthems I for Christmas last year, and that was pretty good, but this follow up is even better. Mostly because it digs out some of the brilliant but not often seen tracks like DReam, S Express, New Order, Orbital and Billie Ray Martin.

Discs 2 and 3 seem to be chronological as well, but it really is big tune after big tune, great if you buy only one dance album. Faithless, Livin Joy, Modjo (what a track!), Olive, Stardust, the list goes on.

I'm lovin it! Couldn't recommend it more...i'll be getting it for people for Christmas...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, But The Mixing Has A Lot To Be Desired 10 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
Ministry of Sound are back with yet another release, Anthems II, which is a follow up to last year's Anthems album, which covered 16 years worth of dance music - this time the team pick out more goodies from 1991 to the present day.

CD1 is mainly early 90s dance "pop" - it's all the big hits that charted - so depends on the clubs you were visiting back in the day, but this mainly wasn't playing there. The mixing is terribly pedestrian, an example is the move from the 4x4 of Blue Monday to Orbital's Chime, which just seems like they have cut a piece from the New Order track and pasted it for 8 bars. Some of the better tracks on here include Snap's Rhythm is a Dancer with it's robotic feel; the beautiful vocals of Billie Ray Martin on Your Loving Arms - which to me was a classic; and Orbital's Chime, which still sends a chill down my spine. Some definite stinkers here include the rather annoying MIDI saxophone of Guru Josh with Infinity (what a blunder that was on Top Of The Pops?) and D-Ream's UR The Best Thing. Otherwise this has the usual fodder you find on this type of compilation, though having FSOL's Papua New Guinea really scored points for me.

CD2 is mainly late 90s dance and early 2000s music - some nice stuff on here includes York's cheeky sampling of Chris Rea with On The Beach; French dance masters Modjo with Lady, brilliant; Ultra Nate's diva like vocals on Free and Tori Amos' Professional Widow, perfectly remastered by the legend Armand Van Helden. The mixing is still very pedestrian and doesn't seem to be have been done by a human, as it's just not the level you'd expect to see when you go to the MOS on a Saturday night.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bass aint pumpin' 20 Dec 2008
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The Ad for this looks great & whets the appetite for some killer tracks. In fairness there are some true classics on these 3 discs such as Robert Miles haunting piano led 'children', New Orders doom laden electro 'Blue Monday', the Prodigy still sound edgy & Daft punk's hypnotic "around the world'continues to weave a spell.
There is certainly a fair few genuine anthems here for sure but 3 discs? 'fraid not. Some tracks have not aged well, such as Guru Josh's 'Infinity' or Blue boy's 'remember me', while others are quite frankly as rubbish now as when they were 1st released, the MAW, N'joi & Bel amour, to name just a few, were naff and no amount of time is going to change that.
It's great to revisit some classic anthems and here the likes of voodoo ray, Tori Amos & Leftfield are a pleasure to return to but there is just way too much z-list material here for this to be of any value. You will find yourself hitting the skip button too often.
A single disc release packed with true classics would have been great but there is just far too much filler & not enough killer to make this worth bothering with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ministry of Sound Celebration Anthems 21 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
Ministry of Sound: Anthems II"(1991-2009) is an excellent compilation of 20 songs on each of the three cds. "Your Loving Arms" by Billy Ray Martin, "Dreamer" by Livin Joy, and "Something Good 08" by Utah Saints are among some of the excellent tracks in this collection. "Ministry of Sound: Anthems II"(1991-2009) is best for those who like electronic and chill-out music collections containing various artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top tunes 2 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
This was a great buy. Superb for parties or just dancing around the kitchen. There are no thumb-twiddling pauses as the tracks are mixed to flow into each other - just as though you were on the Ministry of Sound dancefloor. The track listing would appeal to a wide age group as it covers almost 20 years of top quality floor fillers from New Order's 'Blue Monday' to modern classics by Daft Punk and Eric Prydz. Among my personal favourites have got to be the brooding, atmospheric 'Insomnia' by Faithless, Stardust's 'Music Sounds Better With You' and Rosie Gaines' catchy 90s smash 'Closer than Close'. But there are plenty of good stuff to choose from. There may be the odd tune not to your taste - the Prodigy's 'Firestarter' was always way too punk to be house in my book - but you won't be skipping many tracks in this diamond collection. Buy it and let the party commence!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 31 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant album. I bought the first and loved it, so bought this too.
Excellent album, though not quite as good as the first, but still chock-a-block with dance floor tunes.
If you've not got the first one, buy it and then get this one too!
