By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Now this is what I call a compilation. Taking in a disparate roster of artists indulging and colourfully succeeding in an eclectic variety of musical styles with 50 tracks it offers terrific value for money. Not least because the quality is consistently excellent. Not all the artists are signed to Rough Trade, it would be extraordinary if they were, some are mind but other labels represented include Domino, Too Pure, Wichita, Slogan and lots I’ve never heard of before.
As a method of hearing new bands it can’t be beat as it would cost the equivalent of your Council tax every month to investigate all these bands individually, not to mention the amount of time it would take. On the infuriatingly perplexing side it may well pique your interest in so many bands it may well end up costing you a fortune anyway but it’s a nice problem to have and if it stops you spending money on less important things like your Council tax then so be it. So be warned there is a lot of stuff here that will have you furiously investigating the Amazon site.
Stuff like Six Organs of Admittance: “Words For Two”, The Boy Least Likely To: “Paper Cuts”, Data Panik: “I Love You” The Spinto Band: “Direct To Helmet“Milburn: “Showroom” to name a few. There are also some higher profile bands like Franz Ferdinand , The Fall, Espers, Low , Elvis Costello with the Brodsky Quartet, Boards Of Canada and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah whose track incidentally called “Details Of the War” is a real snorter and makes me regret not buying their album instead of Broken Social Scenes patchy effort.
By the law of averages there is bound to be some stuff any listener will not get on too well with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rough Trade Shops 7 Sep 2008
By QXBear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
All of the Rough Trade Shops releases are excellent. On note on this one though. The correct title is Rough Trades Shops: Counter Culture 05. Which is actually the 4th Volume (6 Volumes altogether) in the Counter Culture Series and not the 2nd as listed here. Check out the Amazon UK site for details on this series and other Rough Trade Shops compilations.
