Guide to 2007?,
This review is from: Clubbers Guide 2008 (Audio CD)
Reviewing this is very difficult mainly due to the 2 completely contrasting styles on the cd's. CD1 is your typical commercial ministry of sound compilation. Theres plenty of good clubs song on here, a couple of brilliant once including Ida Corr and Peter Gelderblom's Remix of the RHCP by the way. Obviously the Booty Luv and Chanel tracks are also good but overall this is your mainstream cd and for the quality of mixing (being non existant) id give cd1 a 1 or 2 at most
CD2 in contrast is dirty edgy funky electro, quite a departure for MOS compilations. CD2 is brimming with brilliant club tracks that you will be hearing in any decent club that knows its house music. Dirty South, Micky Slim, Steve Angelo,Sandy Rivera and the amzing so it goes by bart.b are all brilliant tracks and for sure will get you funking across the dancefloor. The only let down of this CD is that again the mixing is little more than what you can do with your media player crossfader.
1 other qualm is that there were several of these songs which were out in clubland as early as last spring, which begs the question how can this be a guide to 2008 when we have spent the best part of a year listening to these tracks. Im not quite sure who this album will appeal to really, commericial dance fans will love disc 1 but hate disc 2, and house/electro fans will really like disc 2 but will be left feeling let down by mixing and disc 1, a little identity crisis of an album but well worth a buy even if you only listen to 1 of the cds
