Like the only later entries in this series, there are two discs here of great '90s music (and, as is the norm with compilations, some of lesser quality), mostly of indie tracks from some of the top bands/artists of the area.

It was released at the height of Britpop (seven more volumes were issued out, of which I am eager to check out soon) and therefore serves as a good introduction to the genre. There were plenty of songs of here that I was very familiar with (I was already a lifelong fan of such big bands as The Verve, and especially Oasis), as well as some lesser known tracks (my favourite being Screamager by Therapy?). Some of them were so good that I decided to check out more songs from certain bands' back catalogues and buy some of their albums. I feel quite confident that this collection will do the same to you.

The mid-nineties was a fine-time for British music; a time when pop music hadn't been pop-starred and manufactured, it was the day of the guitairs and monkey side-burns, tight fitting T-shirts and 'Trainspotting'. It was the day of Brit-pop.
It's no wonder that this album that plucked the best of the charts of the time, comes up with a wide variety of fantastic tunes. With the Brit-poppers and rockers on one CD: Oasis (at their best), Blur, Charlatans, Supergrass, Pulp, Skunk Anansie and Stone Roses, and the dancier tunes of the Prodigy, Primal Scream and KLF on the other.
This is music that takes me back to a very sunny Glastonbury festival in 1995 when Supergrass and Sleeper rocked the NME stage and Boo Radleys 'Wake up Boo' was the theme of the summer.
This album is an absolute must for all that were teens in the mid-nineties and need to be reminded that actually the chart music was pretty damn good back in the day.

I owned this album when it first came out; still not sure what happened to it, so I re-bought it. Listening through the music of my youth always gives me a little more bounce for the day and brings back memories of drunken times in smokey nightclubs :-)
Sorted.

The BITW...E! was a great series of Britpop CD compilations....i bought them to take me right back to the carefree mid-Nineties! All of them contain the more successful 7" singles (remember them?!) of the day by the cream of British talent (and the odd US band) and yes, there are a couple of dodgy tracks on each one but you can't please all of the people all of the time. Great price on Used CDs and fast delivery as usual from Zoverstocks....the whole series cost me less than a tenner!

Gosh, I remember this. It was a very timeous release in 1995, compiling a bunch of mostly indie guitar tunes right at the very height of britpop, and it is a pretty good britpop sampler. It has "Alright" by Supergrass, "Wake up Boo" by the Boo Radleys, and Edwyn Collins' "A Girl Like You", three of the most ubiquitous radio hits of the time. And "Whatever" by Oasis. Surprisingly however it does not have Pulp's "Common People" or anything by Sleeper.
There are britpop fellow travellers such as the Prodigy, Fluke and the Chemical Brothers, all of whom appeared on the soundtrack to the Playstation hit "Wipeout" and its sequel, and who were not indie guitar bands at all. There is nothing by Orbital, however.
The biggest omission is drum'n'bass, which was the hippest thing imaginable at the time; instead of Goldie's "Inner City Life" or Tricky's cover of "Black Steel" there is "Lifeforms" by FSOL, which isn't really drum'n'bass and isn't even the best song that FSOL group did. As with britpop in general, of the roughly two hundred people who appear in the bands on this record roughly half a dozen are not white europeans.
It's odd to search for Goldie and find Goldie Lookin' Chain rather than Goldie (pause) Goldie. Drum'n'bass really was quite extraordinarily hip, I can't express it in words.
It is fascinating to read the tracklisting of this decade-old release and ponder on those britpop artists that were popular at the time but have since vanished into obscurity; I believe the majority of the bands have split up since 1995 or are no longer recording (conversely New Order has reformed).
As for being the "best album in the world ever" the title is clearly nonsense; that would imply that the first decent rock single in the world (ever) was This Charming an by the Smiths.
