A questionable selection of guitar based tracks from a leading Dance label.
on 26 May 2011
Ministry Of Sound's latest venture in the populist 'Anthems' series veers away from the dance based market to select 3 CD's of 'Indie' music, spanning (briefly) the '70s to the present day. The question really is 'why?'. The other titles, from 'Electronic 80's' to 'Disco' and 'Hip-Hop' go some way to explain the origins of modern dance music, however this title veers away from this theme completely. If you never thought you'd see the day when Oasis or The Sex Pistols appear on a Ministry album, well that day has actually arrived...
Although this is actually a half-decent selection of songs, when you look at the title it's difficult to see what's 'Indie' about Lenny Kravitz or why they've shamefully missed out selections from The Smiths, Stone Roses and Pulp.
If you don't already own most of the tracks on this then fair enough, otherwise there's no real point to this. Confusing.
