Format: Audio CD
What an amazing album!!! Over the years classic electronica and it's roots have not been serviced well by compilation albums. Landscape! Buggles! Ultravox with Midge! Human League with girls! Spandau Ballet! This compilation made me realise how quickly this style of music moved away from it's dark/punk roots to be a commercially acceptable and chart friendly music form. The compilers of this compilation were themselves guilty, pretty boy pop stardum replaced great mood music. Yes, it has always been a fashion statement music; Bowie, Roxy, etc, but not at the expense of great emotional music. It became all feel good and not an expression of a great and dark time of life.

What do we find? Classic Kraftwerk, Human League (before girls), Bowie, Tubeway Army, John Foxx- if these were the roots why were the branches so jolly? Grace Jones, Donna Summer from the electronic/disco era and Magazine and Wire from the post-punk days. Totally different in style but they all fit together, reminding us that the first electronic artists came out of punk and not out of fasion magazines. A double album would have been so appreciated as this seems so short. Then we could have had other pioneers like Can, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Giorgio Moroder, Space, Sparks, Japan etc.

I cannot recommend this album enough. This is history, the roots of rave and dance music. See where the Killers and the Bravery descend from and enjoy a dark beginning that just lights up your speakers one song after another.

What an amazing collection of tracks to be found in one place - where else would you find Kraftwerk, early Simple Minds, Grace Jones, Tubeway Army etc all together ? And the Donna Summer classic I Feel Love (without having to endure loads of other naff disco tracks too), + Iggy, Bowie, Ferry, pre Midge Ultravox.
Unfortunately I never went to the Rum Runner, but I was around the clubs at that time so can recall this great stuff - amazing collection, just amazing. Don't want to repeat what some of the other reviewers have written, but there are things which perhaps should have been on there (eg Japan) but not sure what you'd want to bump off in its place as the existing selection is so strong. Reading the sleeve notes by Nick Rhodes it completes the picture how many of the genres collided at this point. It's a really cool sleeve (metallic digi pack) so buy the CD rather than downloading the MP3s - I guess it is to represent the mirror walls of the Rum Runner club.
I suspect the teeny-boppers who think of Reflex/Wild Boys/Is there something I should Know type Duran Duran will not 'get it'. But the Duran Duran fans who admire all their good stuff (Chauffer, Tiger Tiger, My Antartica, Palamino etc etc) will understand where their influences came from.

This is a fantastic album. I knew I'd like it when I first heard about it, as I love every bit of music Nick Rhodes does, and I also like the stuff he says are his influences. Here you get early Human League, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Bryan Ferry, Donna Summer and Bowie among others. Now isn't that a great line-up?

Although this is mostly early electronic music, it still has a lot more heart and soul than a lot of modern music - cough*Justin Bieber*cough. This album will take you back to those early New Romantic / New Wave discos, when music really was for dancing to and living by. I really doubt Justin Bieber would cite Bowie as one of his influences, and I think Bowie must be glad of that!

I think its very magnanimous of Taylor and Rhodes to include an Ultravox track here. Midge Ure has been disparaging about Duran Duran in the past, yet 'Planet Earth' would not be at all out of place on this album. People are now saying Duran songs are classics - I note they don't say that about MIdge Ure's solo stuff!

Anyway, whoever you like music-wise is your choice and nobody has the right to tell you what to listen to and what not to listen to. But if you're looking for a great example of early electronic music or jst a great CD, you can't do better than this one.

Format: Audio CD
A great choice of opening track sets the tone. A lot of casual electro fans probably won't have heard the Human League do such a raw and stripped down number. But it's a great sound and a great song. And this continues all the way down. There are some absolute classics that have featured on every synth collection ever, but then there is Daniel Miller in his pre Mute days and John Foxx in his post Ultravox days. There is New Wave, New Romantic, pure synth and post punk all thrown into the mix. This diversity and the presence of some lesser known numbers might put you off, but that is what makes this album in a rather congested compilation market. You don't expect early Simple Minds or Iggy Pop to turn up on a Duran collection. In fact, the only thing missing is an early Duran number that I'm sure they would have forgiven been for.

The mix is OK, nothing particularly special but it doesn't get in the way. The sleeve notes and art is OK, but not sensational. I'm sure there are plenty more compilations that can come out of the Rhodes mix box though, and if they are as good as this then I'd go along for the ride. Recommended.
