5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of history 30 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
When you buy this mix you're buying THE legendary DJ mix of all time. Forget all your Misery Of Sound, Cream, Euphoric and other such rubbish, this is a real piece of mix tape history. Back in the days of this mix there was no such thing as the mix album, compare that to nowadays where the dance racks of your local record shop are rammed full of below par computer mixed CDs. This was a snapshot of two shining stars of the club world, a way to hear what many could only read about in magazines, the sound of Sasha & Digweed's legendary residency at Renaissance.
This mix was originally fetching up to £100 off Ebay, deservedly so after winning the 'Best Mix Of All Time' award, before getting remastered and repackaged for this 10th Anniversary edition. Its just the boys and their decks, warts and all. The mixing is vibrant and lively from the days before laptop delievered ultra slick mixes, swapping between the euphoric trance of the day, anthemetic house monsters and the odd rave gem here and there. Check the spinetingling intro of the Song Of Life medley, the now classic trance anthem Age Of Love, Digweeds first outing under the Bedrock moniker, the top Xpress2 mix of Love And Happiness ... so many tunes deserving of classic status yet an album that is head and shoulders above the recent spate of so called classic compilations. So many moments for many to relive and for some to experience for the first time.
10 years on and the mix is still fresh to listen to, 3 CDs of total quality and different moods to experience, with the boys leaving the mix pretty much intact from its original state aside from replacing a couple of tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost the best mix of all time 12 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
I know some people will boo and hiss at me giving this only 4 stars and I know the history of this CD. I loved the original and its what got me into dance music. Used to hate the stuff. It brought a tingle to my spine. It was a thing of great rarity, a dance music mix compilation that turned several individual tracks into one piece of music. It has one of the greatest most inspired individual mixes ever - 2 Bad Mice into Age of Love (CD3). So why not 5.
Simply because its not the original. CD1 doesn't finish on Digger's remix of M-People, Renaissance and CD3 Doesn't start with M-People How can I Love You More. Also They cleaned up the sound, made it a bit bright. The original was clearly hand crafted ona pair of 1210's, has this been remixed on computer?? If you've never heard the originals then get this you won't be dissapointed, if you have well still get it 'cos its still an incredible piece of mixing.
If it was a true re-release then yes - the best mix cd of all time together with Coldcut's 70 Minutes of Madness, also released but in its original form.
The good news however is that with this re-release the original has come down from around £90-£100 to £20-30 on ebay so do the right thing. Buy this remastered one for everyday use and a copy of the original for Sundays!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's back, it's bad, it's better than ever. 27 Nov 2004
By Will
Format:Audio CD
This is where it all began, this is the mix that spawned myriad other mixes, the best mix in the world, the best cd in the world, the best djs in the world (on the top of their game), a time before dance music became a dirty word and when clubbing was still vaguely underground or abbarant.
I first listened to this album when I was a student back in 1994. A friend of mine leant me the cassette version and my eyes and ears were opened to a completely new music. It was like nothing I'd heard before and it blew me away, after that day I never looked back. I spent my grant money (remember that?!) on mix cd after mix cd always hoping the next fix would be as good as the first. To this day - 10 years later and down hundreds of pounds spent on mostly second rate, naff mixes I find myself back in line for the remastered version of this classic.
I'm buying this mix again because athough I still have my original student-aquired version in pristine condition (a rare ebay darling that prior to this re-release fetched upwards of £100) I want to see if listening to remastered messrs sasha and digweed can possibly sound any better. I regret I never made it to a renaissance night, although I did and very occassionally still do make it to club nights up and down the country, so this mix is still as close to 'Renaissance' as I've ever got.
The tripple CD mix pioneered a new sound many have tried to copy. The packaging was esquisite borrowing from Renaissance paintings which made you treat the cds with even more reverence. Disc two was and still is my favourite mix. It's a real journey, complete on it's own although CDs one and two are also near perfect. I love the funkier, deeper sounds of disc two which even now still sends shivers down my spine.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent start if you can't get the original 31 Aug 2009
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
My original copy of this original Renaissance Mix Collection is sadly starting to deteriorate (both on the CD's and the gorgeous packaging), and so I've come to terms I need a quick fix. I bought this Anniversary Edition out of interest, and have to say that for a tenner, you honestly can't go wrong. Don't forget - when the original album came out, it was almost twenty-five pounds!

You may not know what 'Renaissance' essentially is, and have come to the beginning to see where it all began. It is in fact a club-night, originally formed in 1992 and HQ'd in lovely area of Nott's. What made Renaissance different to all the other little club nights however was that, as the name suggests, it was themed around Italian house music and progressive house. Accompanied with lavish decor and a new style of DJ'ing to accompany the music, Renaissance was the reason people travelled all over the U.K just to hear the likes of Sasha, Digweed play. It brought a wealth of respect and glitz back to an active leisure which, for that time, was dominated by drugs and secret illegal raves.

Inside the Digi-Pak their is a nice booklet that gives an in depth look into the making of this remastered album, the history of Renaissance, and interviews with Alex and John themselves. Perhaps this is the first thing I should point out - this album hasn't necessarily been 'cleaned', but completely remixed on computers. Although their is evidence that the lads had good intentions, it somewhat takes away the value and history of the recording, as well as opening new Copyright legalities.

Due to these constraints, various tracks have been removed from the album which is particularly sad. 'How Can I Love You More' has been pulled, and OMD of all artists makes its way in.
