I am going to have to write this review fro 2 different perspectives. Firstly as a music lover of most genres and particularly dance then this is a smashing album. The are a huge number of classic tracks on the 3 cd's which bring a smile to your face when you think of the first time you heard them in a club. Tunes long since forgotten. It also neatly covers dance...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best!
I bought this album from seeing an advert on the T.V. Most of the songs they played i knew and liked. I was expecting to hear more classic old style 90's songs and thought at last i had found a complimation i was looking for. It wasn't unusual for me to read a back of a cd cover and not know many on the list as alot of hits on this sort of thing are one-offs. But this...

This review is from: Renaissance- The Classics (Audio CD)
I am going to have to write this review fro 2 different perspectives. Firstly as a music lover of most genres and particularly dance then this is a smashing album. The are a huge number of classic tracks on the 3 cd's which bring a smile to your face when you think of the first time you heard them in a club. Tunes long since forgotten. It also neatly covers dance music as opposed to trance music or handbag or piano or any of the other many sub-catagories that electronic music has sadly been broken up into over the years so there is something for everyone on this. Yes if you're looking for a genre specific 'classics' album you'll be disappointed but if you like your dance as a whole you could be onto something.
The other perspective I want to wrtie from is as a DJ and yes from here it is a bit disappointing. Bland mixes, clearly computer blended as opposed to hand-crafted. Yes, if you want an example of a beautifully crafted mix or you want to demonstrate to someone what is meant by set building then get the original Renaissance Mix by Sasha & Digweed (the real one preferably, complete with the M-People tracks but the re-release will do) or Coldcut's 70 Minutes of Madness. But then I don't think this is the idea with this CD and the shear volume of good tracks make this a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb -Takes you Back to the heady Days, 2 Dec 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Renaissance- The Classics (Audio CD)
Three CD's of superb tunes - some old favourites, a lot of classics and a few cheeky popuar tunes thrown in for good measure. This an album that doesn't try to take itself too seriously by claiming to be "the album of classics" -there are too many to get on one box set - but offers up everything it says on the tin -a collection of Renaissance Classics. A renaissance night is unique experience and this is classics according to the renaissance experience and i think its absolutely perfect. Just right. With tunes like Last Rhythm and Gat Decor - Passion, this is an album if you were a serious clubber, a halfway clubber or an occasional clubber. It fits for everyone. And for the person with the review that says its obviously computer mixed, do you seriously think that DJ's mix CD's for retails nowadays without using software? I don't think so.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance Til You Wear Your Slippers Out!, 25 July 2005
This review is from: Renaissance- The Classics (Audio CD)
This is the perfect album for playing in the car or while you are getting ready for a night out. Some of the mixes are superb such as Brand New Heavies, Inner City and 808 State being among my favourites. I was surprised to see Ten City and Depeche Mode on the album but they really do blend in well with the other tracks. For me, there isn't a duff tune on here. I only got my copy at the weekend and have played it continually. Yep, this album is worth splashing your pocket money on. 10 out of 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I've been recommended for a long time, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Renaissance- The Classics (Audio CD)
My friend was playing this CD which I loved immediately, although it's not up to the minute chart music (you will recognise all the tunes anyway) its brilliant to have playing in my car on long journeys and while doing the housework. For £2.99 its been money well spent. Give it a go and see what I mean.
