5.0 out of 5 stars Get involved on this!!!! 27 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a brilliant CD..this really does take me back!
This CD is allabout the next stage from the rave culture then swinging into the mid90's. Dance music took off in another
direction and DJ's finally began to recognise the changes from pumpingacid house to soulful, funky, vocal, House/dance mucic!
From the mid 90's and onwards 'going out' was all about making someeffort!
This CD has cleverly achieved that real dance music feeling
that was loved by everyone and still is today! By many of us, includingmyself these tunes are sadly missed. They may have gone but they aredefinitely not forgotten! This album is a true
reflection of danceculture after the mid 90's. The only tunes missing from this album has tobe JX-cant keep my hands off you and DJ Flavours-your caress.
Towards the end of the decade the progression of speed garage becamehighly popular e.g Sandy B, Rip Groove, Spin Spin sugar, Ruff Driverzetc.. There even appears to be a come back with speed Garage
in manyplaces now! Thank god!
At the moment i really cant think of anything worse than Sean Paul andthat dreadfull Beanie Man! Whats happend to the good old days of thefunky, lively, dance music that was around????
Oh well thank god for the likes of Hed Kandi and Defected..theres stillroom for good House Music!
Anyone agree? curlygirly92@hotmail.com

I've got 90% of these songs on singles but never got round to compiling my own CD. This is absolutely brilliant and has the advantage of a fully mixed compilation, so if like me you were at college/uni 7-8 yrs ago and spent many a Friday night in your local (dance) club/uni bar you'll not find a better CD to remind you of those fantastic times. If your after a trance/house CD or pre 1995 this isn't really for you, but there are plenty of these around anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really was born in the wrong decade... 28 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As an 18 year old I missed out on clubbing to Old Skool music....for a long time this bothered me UNTIL Ministry of Sound starting releasing these excellent compilations. From Lovestation's "Love Come Rescue Me" to the all-time classic "U Sure Do" by Strike...this cd has everything I could ever want to replace missing out on probably one of the best eras of dance there has ever been....one thing missing though- Blackbox "Ride On Time"....now that's a song to get up for....this cd is brilliant-buy it if you are like me-wanting to get into older dance music or if you are the 20-something ravers struggling to remember your youth-this cd has it, and more....

5.0 out of 5 stars Top old skool tunz! 6 Aug 2005
By DVD Fan
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big fan of dance music in general and especially old skool club tunes. This compilation has all the big floor fillers of the 90's on it and will bring back many memories for many I'm sure, and a great era of music to new listeners. There are other various old skool compilations but few have as many of the top tunes on them as this does as well as a few you love but forgot the names of, Ripgroove in my case. The best tracks in my opinion are Insomnia a real classic the same as Dreamer, Passion great beat and vocals much the same as Show me love, Another night, Spin spin sugar, The real thing are 3 different tracks all great dance tunes. The music is just great and is the happy feel good music that will get anyone in the mood to boogie on down! ; )

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Nostalgia Trip 15 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
Unlike most Old Skool albums about this one doesn't stop at 1994!! This album follows on from The Ministry's other Old Skool compliations with more 'up-tp-date' classic skool tracks from the mid-90s onwards.
The compilation has both the huge tracks that were smash hits as well as some more off-beat songs that keep it interesting & diverse from other compilations in the genre.
The mixing between the tracks is as professioal as you'd expect from Ministry & the choice of mixes of each track makes the album flow really well.
My only gripe is that it's a shame cds don't run longer than 70-odd minutes as afew tracks have been seriously cut to fit in, which is a shame. Other than that it's an amazingly happy nostalgia filled album!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Take a trip back in time.... 16 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
I saw the ad on TV for this CD a few days ago, I knew I HAD to have it! I'll just get straight to the point, this CD is great. Songs that I had totally forgotten about have all come flooding back, great times, great memories. I've bought 'Back to the old school' albums previous to this, nothing compares though, this is the crem de la crem of old school. From the start this CD (x2)it really kicks off in the party mood with the club classic Dreamer by Livin' Joy, most of the stuff is from early 90's and with a couple of 'not so classic songs' it's the only reason why it didn't get 5/5. It is well on its way though!
