5.0 out of 5 stars Afro genious 19 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first (and only so far) compilation album by Soul II Soul covering their amazing career from 1989's Club Classics to 1990's A New Decade and 1992's Just Right.It takes off with the smash hit (no introductions needed)"Back To Life" which is still regarded one of the best R&B records ever.The more mellow "Keep On Moving" is next followed by the sophisticated rap of "Get A Life" and the haunting melodies of "A Dream's A Dream".It's pure soul on "Missing You" , "Move Me No Mountain"(the weakest track in the album) and "Just Right" before it gets a bit more clubby with "People".Soul II Soul's first record ever "Fairplay" probably invented mainstream 90's R&B and the only new track on the album "Wish" is yet another winner.The album ends with the latest Soul II Soul Top 5 hit "Joy".All in all,the album certifies Jazzie B. for what he really is:a R&B/soul genious and while his music has lost its commercial appeal it certainly keeps getting better and better

4.0 out of 5 stars great collection 29 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this after hearing Back to Life and remembering how much I liked Soul II Soul back in the day. This is a great collection of songs: funky beats, amazing vocals and they even included Jazzie's Groove ("The future for Soul II Soul? A happy face, a thumpin' bass for a lovin' race. Peace.") The only thing I don't like are the three remixed tracks tagged on at the end. The other 12 tracks are happy grooves and will send you to work with a smile on your face if you listen to them on your morning commute (at least it worked that way for me!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good music, good memories 22 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Soul II Soul, led by Jazzie B (still one of my fave DJ's) started life as a sound system, and playing at classic London venues like 'The Africa Centre' (Covent Garden) & 'The Fridge' (Brixton).
The first track on the album is the HUGE number 1. hit, 'BACK TO LIFE'. This track was massive and really sounds fresh today. The Caron Wheeler vocal, over the infectious hip-hop style beat, i still love this track. Track 2 is the equally soulful & impressive KEEP ON MOVIN', features Ms. Wheeler again on lead vocals. much more down tempo, this is a great summer track. Track 3 'GET A LIFE' has Jazzie B delivering a smooth rap style vocal, with a funky bassline, and a great chorus (sung by kids!), sounds really superb. Other stand out tracks on this album are track 9, 'FAIRPLAY' with Rose Windross on vocals, which i heard dropped in a bar not long ago, and the dancefloor went wild! Track 12 is 'JOY', with a great soul vocal by Richie Stevens, and the horns offer a great hook!. This cd also gives us a remix of 'FAIRPLAY' (see above) by The Ethnic Boys & 'BACK TO LIFE BONUS BEATS' reconstructed & mixed by Louie Vega & Kenny Dope.

This is a great collection of very good music.

Peace out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to life, back to reality! 8 Feb 2013
By Radiojock TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a must-have album for R&B fans. As soon as I saw the cover, I recognised it straight away. I'm in the middle of buying up old albums I had at very reasonable prices and this just blew my socks off. Fancy finding it here!

There can't be many people who don't know Soul II Soul, but if you don't, they were huge in the 80s/90s. Much stuff of theirs is based on sampled other records with new vocals. Every track is beautiful to dance to.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It maybe their greatest hits, but if you have never heard their music - invest! One of the best, if not the best, British R&B group ever to come out of the UK!
