5.0 out of 5 stars Does just what it says on the cover...
Let’s get this straight first. There has been a lot of consternation from diehard fans as to this compilation being a “rip off” because of a single track, but more on that later. Frankly, I say "Tosh!", these dissenters missed the point.

2.0 out of 5 stars a pointless "cash cow" compilation....
I really don't get the idea/concept that ZTT/Salvo were trying to achieve with this silly mess...
It feels like a sub-standard filler for their next comp. series "Art of the 12""...and this cd is just that...filler..no real substance....
I truly hope that there will NOT be a sequel to this messy concept cd.....

Let’s get this straight first. There has been a lot of consternation from diehard fans as to this compilation being a “rip off” because of a single track, but more on that later. Frankly, I say "Tosh!", these dissenters missed the point.

Consisting of a mixture of well-known and not so-well known tracks from very diverse artists on the ZTT stable, and other artists who happened by the Sarm Studios with a track to record. Seemingly intended as a taster for ZTT’s excellent back catalogue collections (or Diversions as they like to call them), most of the mixes on this collection seem to be subtle variations on the most common or well-known mixes of the standard tracks. So for instance, the Art of Noise “Moments in Love - Beating Hart’s Mix” bears more than a passing resemblance to the version that appears on the Into Battle With… album, the controversial “Sex Mix, Edition Two” mix of Frankie’s seminal “Relax” appears to be a spliced in half version of the original 16 minute epic “Sex Mix” which first appeared on 12” back in 1983. This mix appeared a month or so ago as a streaming sampler on facebook, and various other channels, a number of fans cancelling their pre-orders on the apparent rip-off of this. I for one think this was rather an over-reaction and kept my pre-order open, not wanting to sully what looked to be a good overall compilation with a knee-jerk reaction.
Quality control wise, the sound is excellent, and I would have been disappointed with anything less as Trevor Horn’s production values are one of the key reasons why I particularly enjoy ZTT products. Although the packaging isn’t up to the normal high standards of the recent ZTT compilations, and there is a complete lack of sleeve notes, apart from the usual copyright information for each track, which is highly unusual.
Frankly I’m glad I did not cancel my pre-order, because, I really did enjoy this compilation for what it said it is, a collection of modern-day lullabies (L.a.z.y) and wake up calls (Frankie GTH).

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Compilation!, 31 July 2013

ZTT certainly bang out some ripper comps, and this is no exception. Just reading the track listing might have you thinking it's a bit of an odd mix, but it all hangs together beautifully! Highly recommended.
