5.0 out of 5 stars Best 'Artists Compilation Tape' ever! 25 Mar 2006
By A. Miles VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A fantastic mix of primitive electro, '60s obscurities, inspired cover versions and I don't know what else. The best Artists 'compilation tape' CD I've heard so far. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 26 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
A very eclectic mix of some hidden gems, worth the price for Egyptian Reggae and Gassenhauer alone. Possibly the most varied and interesting compilation I've ever heard.

2.0 out of 5 stars A tough meal 15 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Firstly I want to say that people who loved this album probably have broader or more academic music tastes than me and I seriously respect their opinion. The "curated by" bit of the album title is very apt. This is an album of dusty old musical curios and odd asides from MOR artists. To me it is heavy and weird. I couldn't get through the whole thing in one sitting. I listened to this half a disc at a time then took a break for a day or two to carry on through it.

As a Pulp fan I found it interesting if not actually entertaining. As each track unfolds you get an insight into what makes Steve and (particularly) Jarvis tick musically. Many tracks on this album seem to have something in common with Pulp's style, musically or lyrically, but without sounding anything like the 1990's Pulp that we all grew to knew and love. Having said that, some of the tracks were quite reminiscent of some of the more obscure (and arguably more embarrassing) 1980's Pulp tracks.

The problem with this album is that most people got into Pulp in the mid-90's, the era when indie became mainstream and it was fab to be Britpop, so most of the people who are going to be interested in this album are Pulp fans who probably liked the music from that period, although Pulp were already about 15 years old by that point. So the music that Jarvis thinks is really clever is unlikely to be the average Pulp fan's cup of tea. It's interesting if you're absolutely obsessed with Pulp or Jarvis Cocker and you want to get the back story to his creative urges, but otherwise it's the aural equivilent of being given flour, raw egg, sugar and margarine to eat and hoping to taste cake.
