I'm really sorry to give a 4 star rating. The first CD (which contains a good selection of DIV's work so far) is great. But the second one, which contains the remixes is awful. Give it to your worst enemy, to your ex who broke your heart. All, yes ALL, the remixes are of the kind that make you wonder how the material of the first CD can turn into this kind of crap. Buy it anyway since the remixes CD is a bonus one, but stick to original versions of the songs.

Whilst the tracks from Dead Elvis and Scorpio Rising are probably apt with regards to the best ones from each album, to have more selections from these albums as opposed to The Contino Sessions is unfathomable! If you want the real best of, buy The Contino Sessions in it's entirety, their best work without doubt, near perfect from start to finish. The one track from this album I do not like much is Soul Auctioneer with Bobby Gillespie singing - I feel this song made it due to the guest vocal as opposed to the actual value of the song, which isn't very good.
