4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a fan you'll love it., 30 Jun 2007
This review is from: 5 Years Get Physical (Audio CD)
If you've enjoyed Get Physical's output over the last seventy-odd records, there's bound to be music on this double CD that you'll like. The first disc is a collection of remixes of/by current Get Physical artistes and, apart from the odd novelty (Night Falls and Body Language spring to mind), is pretty sound across the board. Hot Chip's reworking of M.A.N.D.Y. in particular is quite startling and Moby's bash at Les Djinns, despite receiving a bit of a pasting in the press, is engrossing for the first few listens. The Rapture's stripped-down take on Piccadilly Circuits is also very easy to lose oneself in if one's in the right frame of mind.

CD2 is a collection of "exclusives" which again, while being patchy, manages to keep the quality reasonably high overall. The big names (Riton, M.A.N.D.Y. again and Booka Shade) all score with big tracks and the lesser lights make their contributions. The only problem I have with a single-label compilation like this is the suspicion that there is undoubtedly a fair bit of politicking going on behind the scenes in terms of track selection. Get Physical's quality control is generally excellent (as far as I can remember off the top of my head) but some of the music on the second disc sounds out of place. Whether it's because of the varying moods and styles I can't say but, as somebody used to listening to more coherent mixed sets, for me this collection sometimes drops off the pace slightly.

But listen before you buy: you may disagree with every single word I've written.
