Mantronix have been ill served by some of the 'Best of' compilations that have been issued over the years, and this collection doesn't exactly improve upon what has been seen before. Drawing predominantly on 'The Album' and 'Music Madness', there is only one track from 'In Full Effect' ('Simple Simon') and the now obligatory 'King Of The Beats', which appears on numerous compilations (Mastercuts 'Clasic Hip Hop' for example). There are also tracks from the ill fated move to Capitol Records ('Gotta Have Your Love' etc).

I suspect that the primary reason for this release was to prepare the market for the release of 'I Sing The Body Electro', which was scheduled to take place sometime soon after (although it was released it was not originally widely available). This would explain the inclusion of the two new tracks taken from the forthcoming album - and this appears to be confirmed by some interesting (but short) liner notes which feature a few words from Mantronik on why he 'left' music for a while.

If you are a fan and you own the albums already then there really isn't much included here to persuade you to buy this particular collection. The album 'I Sing The Body Electro' can (thankfully) now be bought from Amazon, although be aware that there are at least two alternative versions of the album, and as a fan you really ought to explore what is on offer there.

If there is good news it is that this album is available as a 180grm heavyweight vinyl release by Simply Vinyl, which would indicate that a fair degree of care would have lavished on the mastering and pressing process. For cd fans I would recommend taking a look at 'Music Madness', 'The Album' and (if possible) 'In Full Effect' (although this appears to be currently unavailable).

This 'Best Of' just fails too inspire, and will do little to inspire purchasers to explore the original duo's back catalogue further.

Mantronix are certainly the soundof the mid-late eighties dance scene. These guys ruled New York clubs. This compilation with classics like Got to have your love, Take Your Tme and Dont go Messing with my heart. Mantronix will be remembered as one of the best dance acts in recent memory with the likes of the CNC Music Factory....In case you did not know, one half of Mantronix became Groove Theory...check their album out!

Brilliant CD, brings back memories of the early Hip Hop days, when Mantronix were raw. Takes you through to their more commerical house music from the early 90's. Classic CD for anybody who likes hip hop and house music.
