I don't know why everyone is so upset with all the hardcore that is coming out these days. . . I think that hardcore is about to hit some new level and watch out. hardcore for ever. . . This bonkers in an amazing mix the firsat disc is uplifting and then it smashes into a semi gabba explosion, the Kevin energy and sharkey disc is the same as always left me wanting more. . .but the third disc is what made it worth while - scott brown and Marc smith, a mastermisd in hardcore scott brown Livewired. These guys bring the gabba towards the end which is nicely finished of with. If you love your hadcore then it's another good album, for me it's an addition to the hardcore library, keep hardcore alive buy more hardcore - dont download:( Support your favourite Dj's? HTID>>

i don't understand what the producers are thinking these days...alot of people are saying the same thing over and over, but they're not listening to us!!! all the hardcore tunes over the last last year sound the same, the synths don't stand out from each other like they used to - bonkers 8 to 15 were the phattest box sets...ever...and every track on those CD's were memorable and full of feeling. the tunes on this newest bonkers, aswell as 16, all have that 'upfront hardcore' sound (that's what they call it anyway, i call it crap!) and also those annoying techno trax that really do my head in!!!
don't the DJ's ever listen to the old tracks and think ''what have we done to hardcore????'' i just don't get it. i can't even believe hixxy isn't featured on No. 17...what's all that about!!! i'm usually a fan of brisk and ham, but even their mix is disapointing. everyone seems to be making happy happy happy tracks now...where's the dark, weird tracks that everyone loved??? they just don't make 'em like that anymore!!! the only hope is kevin energy and of course lost soul (still disapointed in kev's mix with sharkey on this one though - 2 happy!!! should be like his mix on hardcore heaven 4!)
as for scott brown's mix...scott, what are you doing???
that's what i'd ask all the dj's actually.
if you want cd's that you will listen to over and over (unlike No. 17), then get bonkers 8 - 15...you won't be sitting there getting annoyed, but smiling instead! real core

dj's...sort it out man

I got this for christmas and let me tell you it is amazing! For me the best CD is Sharkey & Kevin Energy then Brisk & Ham and then Sccott Brown & Marc Smith but every CD is amazing a top notch buy! I love this CD and think it's a must have for any hardcore fan, it's the best bonkers yet!

as a huge hardcore fan i am pleased to see that the cheesy happy hardcore tracks are fading ( largley due to hixxy's absence) many tracks sound the same but there are still some quality toons on here with ham & brisk doing a bit of gabber, sharkey & kevin energy with the uplifting " todays the day" and scott brown & marc smith with thumping beats and hardcore riffs. Its not the best bonkers by any means but still worth a listen.

I just want to say that I wish I was born and lived in the UK. Besides the genuine English they speak with an authentic British accent, plus with pure MDMA and UK Hardcore & Hard Dance, I would be the happiest person ever! Kind regards.

It's not the greatest release of bonkers yet! But that doesn't mean it's not totally amazing. I loved all 3 cds, i thought they were mixed very well. This is one of the better ones of the bonkers series. So i recommend it!

Eagerly awaited and well worth the wait as this is one awesome album... might be wise not to have it playing whilst driving if you know what I mean!

If you like your hardcore fast n' furious then this album ticks all the right boxes and puts that smile on your face very easily. Very seldom can you say that an album gets played from the very beginning to the very end on EVERY disk, this album certainly does.

A small gripe would have to be that some of the crossover from track to track isn't quite as smooth as it could be but apart from that everything else adds up to another class album from the lads. Lets hope that Bonkers 18 meets and exceeds Vol 17.

for every bonkers album, i have placed each disk into my cd player and listened right through every single one. 90% of the songs i love 10% are hit and miss (refering to every album 1-16).

yet i put bonkers 17 in after reading fairly good reviews and i havent been able to listen to a quarter of the 3 cd's. i frankly got bored of listening to them.

back in my younger days when i came into hardcore (around bonkers 3 era) i was a massive hixxy fan right through to bonkers 11. i then stopped listening to hardcore and went into trance.

now coming back to hardcore and listening to all the older albums again sharkey is my dj of choice. every cd of sharkeys is a winner in my oppinion and for me his mixes on 8,9,14 are brainstorming. yet even on this cd i could only listen to maybe 6 songs at most. it sounded just like disc one and disk 3. ill try and listen again but after listening to hixxys varying masterclasses across all the albums, dougles cheese of 12 + 14, scot browns hard hard gabber of 15 and sweet mix of core and gabba on 9, sharkeys insane mind blowing journeys on all his cds. 17 is just plain BORING in comparison.

maybe hixxys abscence contributed to this???

if you have never heard any previous bonkers and are coming into a hardcore scene and 17 is the first album you hear then maybe you might enjoy it more. but after 16 previous albums of pure mayhem and contrating and vario

I say this simply because this album contains everything I love about hardcore. The do away with Raver Baby DJ's was a total blessing as it lost us a CD of cheesy popcore and made all 3 CD's as hard as hardcore should be. This album contains a good blend of vocal slammers with some quality freeform. Scott Brown as always provides some of the best synths hardcore can offer.

Easily my favourite hardcore album of the year because I like it hard, rather than poppy and light like Recon or Hixxy provide.
