4.0 out of 5 stars Takes Me Back 26 Nov 2007
By Colin Mccartney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It may be a bargain price release but any similarity to the cheapo Passion Music Network 4CD reissues of 1998 ends there. This has the feel of a definitive release and would be well worth the money even at twice the price. What needs to be said about this box set is that the first 11 tracks are stone-cold classics. The remaining 3 and a bit discs contain some real gems that didn't get the proper credit first time around e.g. "Deep Trip" by 3 Down, Kim Beecham's "True Love", Dionne "If You Want My Love" to name but three, plus a few more classics (Final Cut, Symbols and Instruments). All that AND a decent booklet with comprehensvie sleevenotes by the original Network publicity officer John McCready - who gets all "Lunar Park" on us (or does he??) - with (amongst other things) a particularly amusing anecdote about Altern 8 and Gordon Brown. One word of warning: as I said earlier, this is a definitive Network retrospective so inevitably (disc 5) it covers their ill-advised progressive house period as well - but don't let that put you off.

3.0 out of 5 stars THAT WAS THEN........ 3 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
The packaging and booklet are great. John McCready is an amazing music writer (you can check out more of his writing on his own website)and he gives a very interesting behind the scenes look at a label that came from the origins of the UK house scene as KoolKat and ended up in the charts with Altern8 and KWS. Disc 1 is all classics from Detroit. Disc 2 reflects the early 1990 bleep scene (see Warps +10 compilation for a companion volume). Thereafter the quality of the music takes a nosedive as we go into looped breakbeats and dodgy vocal samples. With the odd exception (Joey Negros excellent mix of Resse Project's Direct Me)the music hasnt really stood the test of time. Occasionally they use the wrong version/mix (Dionnes "If you Want my Love" for example)and there are good tracks from the Netwrk stable that didnt make it (Chez N Trent, Inner City etc). Depsite this it is still a very interesting listen - reflecting the changes in dance music through the 90s.

3.0 out of 5 stars A better compilation if you please 22 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
I appreciate the early stuff as much as the next person. BUT there were so many more better tracks that I know are there somewhere amongst the full on Network discography. I am thinking about the period that I was a Raver that being 1990-95 and then Jungle drum n bass afterwards. I personally own a few of those 12" records. Reading the notes in the disc box the owners of network say a lot about pre 90's rave music and then seem to be all wrapped up in Altern8 and making them into a pop group, which is what they are/were-anyway. If like me you prefered the more underground sound of 1990 then you remember that as well as releasing a lot of blinding tunes Network released some extremely dodgy tunes as well? On this compilation after the first CD it pretty much goes downhill it is as if the compilers are just a bunch of posers more concerned about being trendy or perhaps just poking their toes in the 88 scene stream/sewer~I jest with you~ thing and thinking that image is everything-oh I really can not be bothered to go any further, so much as to say I personally was disappointed. Yours, Take With Acid. PS for the closest thing to 90's RAVE try Warp + 10 etc.
