At the age 33 this brings back memories of fantastic days gone by for me, but Marc Hughes's CD is a fantastic example of how good Dance music can be now.
Only Dimitri in Paris (Defected) CD has come close to this in the last few years.
Good Work Ministry !
Three CDs packed with the best house music from the last 15 years - cherry picked and mixed by three of the most famous DJs ever to grace the Ministry of Sound turn-tables: CJ Macintosh, Jazzy M. and Marc Hughes. Dance music has come a long way in 15 years and these guys have been there every step of the way.
All three CDs are expertly put together - seamlessly mixed, each with their own twist. Try picking a favourite!
There is so much on one album - you're spoilt for choice. These are the tunes that packed the dance floor of `the most famous nightclub in the world' - listen to this and you'll see why.
Perfect soundtrack to any party -
Happy fifteenth MOS!
This is a very high quality collection of the finest club tracks from Ministry of Sound's nightclub from the past 15 years. Mixed by 3 of the most infamous DJ's from Ministry's past: CJ Mackintosh, Jazzy M & Mark Hughes.
An album mixed by real DJ's represents such an immediate difference in quality over computer-mixed efforts like all the Annual series from the past 6 or 7 years. Despite the statement of another reviewer, this is not nearly as commercial as what MoS is now. These are tracks that were actually played in MoS' own club, rather than the chart-toppers which are hashed on to a cheaply made album these days.
The mixing throughout all 3 cd's really is a revelation. Characterful, masterful and above all Real. You will not find a better Ministry of Sound compilation album than until you go back as far as the first 3 Annual's.
Couldn't recommend it more highly.
Now, I grew up with the house sound, and I've always loved it, but the majority of the tracks gathered together on this set might just be a little too "underground" for me. There is a light sprinkling of hits (Ultra Nate, Stardust, Ce Ce Peniston), and a great many records some of us might not be so familiar with. It is these tracks, or most of them, with which I have a problem.
It is all so "minimalist" - Very sparse arrangements, with plenty of beats but little else, make up the bulk of the set list on each of the three discs. The repetitiveness might have the desired hypnotic effect for those who like the darker side of house, but having never been to the venues which play that sort of thing, I've never appreciated it in the way it was meant to be heard (or perhaps it just isn't for me). Music such as this might sound great on a club system, but I certainly wouldn't recommend this set for home listening, unless dubs are your thing. I do appreciate a little melody in my dance music, but you don't get much of that here.
If you like vocal house, catchy tunes and hands-in-the-air anthems, this is not for you. I don't mind a little "darkness" in my dance music, but when the tracks are so boringly repetitive without vocals or instrumentation or anything to lighten the mood a little, I just switch off (I mean mentally AND the CD player!).
Basically, I bought this album after listening to it at my friends house. I had completely forgotten about it being released, as I had previously dismissed it for being just 'another' album. However, after seeing it was mixed by the old legends themselves, I decided to give it a go.
I can say now that this is probably the best MoS album in years, which is saying alot listening to the other rubbish they release - all with 'new' material. As a DJ myself, it was great to see that The Annual 2008 is a much better effort, but what's missing? The quality of mixing, present on this album.
CJ Mac, Jazzy M and Marc Hughes all combine to put together this lovely album. For those who don't know, Ministry was first opened in 1991, and 3 of its most famous DJ's, listed above, mixed this album. The song selection perfectly reflects a move through time that was, fun house music! From a nice mix of Moving On Up to the consistent piano and hard percussion sounds of It's Gonna Be A Lovely Day, the first CD will be enough on first hearing to render this money well spent. The mixing is well structured and reflects how difficult it was in the early 90's, when songs had more variety in sounds, so top marks to CJ the great beat-matching! Some songs are cuts, some are full edits, but all are fantastic party anthems.
The second and third CD follow in the exact same vein, unsurprisingly! You'll also notice by now the running theme of each CD having an era - whereas CD1 housed 1991-1995, CD2 has 1996-1999, and CD3 having more recent floorfillers.Read more ›
