This is a great item for a new fan, it has all of the hits minus a few tunes like "set my baby free" from golden greats, and a few others that should have made this album, but if you are unfamiliar with brown and loved the stone roses, or even oasis, you will find plenty to head nod to on here. If you are already a fan of Brown's then this is either unneccessary or icing on the cake for your collection. For those in the know, Ian Brown remixes are often exciting and offer new insight so this album is worth getting for the new mixes. Plus, why buy some music from any number of bloated acts when you can help support the career of someone who truly cares about music and his fans? Free Ian Brown!
