London's Rough Trade store has occupied a central and important role in the arena of worldwide electronic exchange for more than two decades. Their compilations are generally well presented and exquisitely put together, and this latest offering is no exception. Spanning over 50 years of electronic enterprise, this collection positions modern producers such as Aphex Twin ("D.C.D.O.A"), Oval ("Kardamon"), Matmos ("Freak N You") and Schneider TM ("The Light 3000") with early pioneers such as John Cage ("Radio Music") and Pierre Henry ("Atelier"), Krautrockers Can ("I Want More"), 1980s industrialists Throbbing Gristle ("Hot on the Heels of Love"), electronic pop bands such as the Human League ("Being Boiled") and New Order ("586") and a host of other seminal electronicists such as Brian Eno, Raymond Scott, Kraftwerk, Non, Aux 88, To Rococo Rot and Fischerspooner. More than any other compilation, this shows the astonishing and near-impossible breadth and range of electronic music in the 20th-century. A must-have for music and technology enthusiasts alike.--Paul Sullivan

Format: Audio CD
This is as good as the previous Rough Trade compilation & as vital as recent electroclash/electronic compilations like 'American Gigolo' & 'Futurism'. This is where a lot of NOW came from- & despite the mixture of time periods, this all comes together cohesively. This is closer to the future than the retro of Hives,Strokes etc. The best singles of late have used the industrial-electronic sound (the NERD produced 'I'm a Slave 4 U', the Gary Numan sampling 'Freak Like Me',the Kraftwerk/Moroder sound of 'Can't Get You Out of my Head',the
depechemode 'something to do' soundalike 'Get UR Freak On' or Timbalands electronic gurgles & bleeps on Aaliyah's 'More Than a Woman'); not to forget the best albums this year ('Geogaddi' & 'Original Pirate Material') are electronic based.
Here we get 41 tracks that prove electronic music has always been the way forward & is a million times more real than dross like Stereophonics.
Disc One opens with Eno's 'Signals'- a previously uncharted gem for me; this is followed by the amusing 'I Hear a New World'-from 1960!!! Oval & Barbara Morgenstern fuse well- then we get the great Throbbing Gristle: a much overlooked band...'Marseille 2' is soundFX-heavy- sort of John McEntire meets Gonzales. The 'Dr?' theme is reason alone to buy this and works well next to i-f's seminal 'Space Invaders are smoking grass' which is one of the most influential songs ever (already) & model for Human League's excellent 'All I Ever Wanted'.The Raymond Scott track makes me think of early Orb,'THX1138' or '2001'. 'The Light 3000' is an electronic cover of The Smiths 'There is a Light that Never Goes Out'- really this is perfect! Thomas Leer is very under-rated-nice to see him represented,prior to autechre's 'basscadet' from the timeless 'incunnubla' album.

Being a long-term aficionado of electronic music, some names in the list are well known (kraftwerk, TG, human league) while others were completely new to me (barbara morgenstern, really beautiful piece). This collection spans time and genres, from experimental to electro-pop, and is an excellent introduction for the non-initiated to the limiteless ramification of this music. However I think that the expert in the area can enjoy this 2-cd set as a useful compendium of (almost) timeless pieces to listen to again and again. One of the most inspiring collections from Rough Trade.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've read the glowing reviews of a number of these rough trade compilations and bought Electonic, Rock and Roll and Post Punk. After having a few sessions listening to them, all I can say is that they are patchy. Most of the tracks are below average with a couple of gems in each.

This comes from someone who loves compilations and appreciates that not every track will be to my tastes. However after reading the reviews on this page and ones relating to the other titles I purchased each has been surprisingly dissappointing, for me at least. There are far better compilations out there. As for the choice of track from Aphex Twin on this compilation I'm amazed at their selection. An average tune, from a great artist.

Still waiting for the country one to be delivered. Maybe I'll be happier with that one, but if I go by the first three I've recieved! I won't be purchasing any more. Sorry.

Format: Audio CD
With this immaculate double Cd offering, those old pro's at Rough Trade map the route of blips and burps and looped and filtered noise that has led to artists such as Aphex Twin, New Order, Autechre. They landmark the ambient and dirty schism that emerged in electronica, a schism like the junction of flesh and bone between Siamese Twins - Brian Eno here, non there and Pierre henry inbetween. The future was always going to be electric, ask Rod Freeman & The Blue Men, whose 'I hear a new world' from 1960 is testament to the fact. And how many knob tweedling boffins were inspired by the whalloping, whining vibro of the Dr Who (Original Theme). Theres all the alienation and futurism and porno-synth sleaze you could ask for herein, plum signposts to where we are - and where next?

Format: Audio CD
having enjoyed electronic music for over 30 years now this album has been a pleasant suprise, errr sort of. i have always wanted "that" version of the doctor who theme, i have fallen in love with barbara sorgenstern's voice, the light 3000 has made me reconsider my dislike of the smiths, can is still one of the best dance tracks i have ever heard and to hear the human league play the tune that made me play my syth in a new way is still fun. but... i do think that the god-like throbbing gristle could have been better represented and i think i'll be able to see out my declining years without ever hearing depeche mode or new order again. can't wait for vol 02 god bless joe meek keep taking the bufferin.
