I borrowed this CD from the library as something I could play in the car for a few days - 6 months later it's a firm favourite in the car amongst everyone, yet carrying what would I imagine is a very large library fine!
CD 1&2 in particular are probably the best - real classics like Bohemian Like You by The Dandy Warhols, Banquet by Bloc Party and Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley. The songs are organised in a logical order according to era and genre (EMF is right next to Primal Scream for instance), and the fact there is such a broad range of songs means that everyone is happy.
Apart from a small selection of bands not featured (Anything by Pulp/The Strokes/Arctic Monkeys you would imagine would be on an album like this), you can't fault the choices and it's been a great way to find out some new bands while reliving some true classics.
All of my friends were genuinely gutted when I said I was returning this item to the library - I guess all that is left is to buy the proper version!
OMG. brought this cd for my husband as it was on his christmas list, it is fantastic. A brilliant mix of old school Indie and current tunes it is so worth the money. Rare that 99% of the tunes you just want to listen to over and over again. I personally found this cd the most playable indie comp that we have, some classics that had slipped from the memory bank but are back again. Well worth the money.
What a great bunch of songs, and some long forgotten treasures re-discovered. A great price and such a great playlist. I won't go into individual songs in the album, you will either like them or you won't. But for me it's a great selection, lots of variety and indie music cannot be beaten. (IMHO!!!)
