Having heard all of the tracks on the main album and having read numerous rave reviews I decided to buy this CD. What I hadn't realised was just how good every single track is. I could remember loving the big hits such as "Red Alert" and "Romeo", but had forgotten the likes of "Do Your Thing" and "Bingo Bango" (the new tracks don't hurt either). The bonus disc includes less dancy versions of some tracks, and different remixes, as well as some other songs, all of which are perfectly acceptable, and its worth getting for an extra £1, but it never quite reaches the giddy heights of the main disc. Don't be put off by the genre "dance music". Personally I hate most modern dance music with a rubbish "tune" and reedy vocals. This is dance music in the sense that you WILL want to dance to every single track. The samples are catchy, the variation in vocal styles is fantastic (compare "Jump N' Shout" with "Jus 1 Kiss") and the production is beyond superb. You may not recognise the names of all of the songs, but upon hearing the album, you'll soon realise you've heard them all somewhere before. If you're unsure, buy it. It IS better than you think.

Basement Jaxx, whilst not always being at the forefront of the electronic and dance music scene in terms of taking the charts by storm, have been an extremely influential group over the past 10 years or thereabouts. This compilation of many of their singles serves to show just why. The Jaxx have stayed fresh whilst maintaining their individual style and sound that makes them different to anything else out there.
This compilation is a great way for anyone who doesn't own any Basement Jaxx albums already to get an overview of their work. The big hits such as Romeo, Where's Your Head At and Red Alert are here, along with almost all the rest of their singles. Those who are Jaxx fans already like myself will be happy with the selection given to them on the first CD, and the second Bonus Traxx CD offers a good selection of B-sides, remixes and alternative versions. The inclusion of the Magnificent Romeo mash up (Romeo's vocal mixed over The Magnificent Seven by The Clash) by 2 Many DJ's is fantastic, especially as the Jaxx have taken influence from this great remix when performing the track live recently.
I do have a couple of problems with this compilation. One glaring omission for example is "Get Me Off", of which neither hide nor hair is seen on either CD. I can't see any reason why this great single wasn't included, when less popular singles such as Do Your Thing were included. I also feel the second CD could have been done slightly better. Many of the B-sides included are stripped down versions - I Beg U has been cut from 8:34 to just 3:42. It would have been nice to have one of the great remixes Stanton Warriors have done of Basement Jaxx tracks on the album, and also maybe a couple of remixes Basement Jaxx have done of other artist's songs.
These are minor annoyances in what is a great compilation from a truly brilliant group. A perfect starting point for anyone looking to discover what Basement Jaxx are all about. Here's to many more years of great Jaxx music!

This album is brilliant, there's songs on the album that I didn't even know was by Basement Jaxx but also the album is made up of old songs and new songs all of which are all upbeat and lively, with the limited edition CD you get an extra CD with remixed songs but to be honest it's not that great (although for a couple of extra pounds you might as well buy it). This is definitely an album to listen to if you like Baseman Jaxx music, its great to have an album that has some of their later music on as well as their current music, with classics such as Romeo, Bingo Bongo and Oh My Gosh. Some of the songs on the album I haven't actually heard before but they are still good songs, so its well worth the money.

It's great isn't it. You hear a particular artist for years, but you have no idea what they're called. You love all their singles, but have no idea that it's the same group.
That has been my experience with this lot.
I was in a music store the other week, and heard track 12 playing in the background. "Do your thing" is a real jazzy, funky, up-beat, dancing in the car tune. You can't help but smile when you hear it. So I asked the guy what was playing and brought it.
When I got it home I recognised every track on the albulm. Each one has been a hit at some point, and each stands up on it's own merits. This is not an albulm that only has two/three good tracks and fills the rest of the cd with pants skippable stuff. This is start to finish modern fun, dance and groove.
If you see some mad man dancing in his car around the M25, it could well be me and this cd.

Having only recently gotten into Basement Jaxx, I knew only a few of these recordings as there own. Upon listening to this, I was shocked at how many of these tracks I knew and loved, without realising it was Basement Jaxx's work.
I found it a delight listening to, from all of the well known tracks such as "Romeo", "Where's Your Head At?", and "Red Alert", to the remixes on disk 2.
A must for all Basement Jaxx fans, whether hardcore or casual, and to all those who wish to listen to some decent electronica/dance music.

For those of you who have never bought a Basement Jaxx album before, this is the one to get first!

The first disc has all the classics (although some are shortened or are radio edits) it's still the best value for money.
The second disc shows you the real world of Basement Jaxx; the way they collaborate with other artists and mix & mashup styles!
Like another reviewer wrote before, it doesn't have any remixes by them of other artists, but hopefully this compilation will inspire you to go out and hunt for them.
I think next I will go and buy the albums: Rooty, Basement Jaxx Vs. Metropole Orkest and then Kish Kash.
