Quantity good, quality slightly lacking.
on 1 July 2009
There are many of these types of albums around now, and in many forms - ie 80's, 90's, pop, dance, indie etc. This one, club classics, represents fairly decent value for money in that it contains 100 songs and can be picked up for around £7 (perhaps less). The problem doesnt lie with quantity, or indeed price - rather with the quality of song selections, which while not all bad, are hardly anything that smacks you in the face with a feeling of amazement. Admittedly there is some good stuff here, and a varied selection of styles, which is a plus if you want a cheap cd for playing at discos or even home use. I cant individualize each song, it would take too long, but on occasion certain versions are disappointing - Read my lips, Happiness Happening, Meet Her at the Love Parade are ones of note. There are much classier versions around. Perhaps they are limited as to which versions they are allowed to use - limited even by song selection.
These are in no way bad albums to own. As I previously touched on, they can be good value for home or disco use. In terms of quality music, this falls short to my personal taste, and I know for certain there are better quality albums of this genre. In summary then, a value album with some good songs on (bound to be with 100 in total), but let down by some poor versions and too much filler to feel like the majority is quality. I think 3 stars is a fair mark here, and if you can pick it up cheap it's not a bad buy.
