The early 1990s in Manchester have become the Vietnam of dance culture. Thirtysomethings with a haunted look in their eyes still go on about "Madchester", "The Hacienda", "Joe Bloggs", "Spike Island" and the like. Ten years on and Shaun and Bez are reduced to dancing puppets in an advert for Unbelievable, a lasting testament to the crazy days, and a load of tracks made by dodgy scallies. There are some truly great tracks on this compilation--The Happy Monday's melon-twisting "Step On", the Stone Roses' era-defining "I Am the Resurrection", the Charlatans' incredible debut "The Only One I Know", the Soup Dragons' only moment of glory "I'm Free" and Inspiral Carpets' sing-a-long anthem "This Is How It Feels". There are also some truly awful moments: whoever thought of including Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" and Pete Wylie's "Sinful" clearly wasn't there; as for the inclusion of the Smiths and Morrissey--too early and too late. You had to be there, man. --Helen Marquis

This CD is the best that I have purchased in years. The memories came flooding back to me of the late 80's and early 90's with artists such as The Stone Roses, Blur and Happy Mondays. This CD is worth every penny, purely for the memories, let alone the great music. This album is truely brilliant, BUY IT!!!

I've bought a few compilations from the 90's recently.....to make a playlist for my car.....and this is by far and away the best standalone compilation that I have found....Its long and has a great variety on it....loads from indie disco's that I remember.....If you only buy one compilation I would buy this....The Shine series is also good ......but this is definitely a best buy......Read the track list and you will see what I mean.....

Being at uni from 89-92 this is a pretty definitive collection for me. There are some outstanding tracks from acts who never hit these heights again - Farm, Roses, Mock Turtles, EMF - that I will never tire of hearing.
My favourite track overall has to be "Shine On" by the House of Love - recalls the days of packed sweaty clubs, baggy faded jeans, long sleeved t-shirts and cans of Redstripe!
Some "oddballs" too - Smiths, Pete Wylie and Depeche Mode which don't really stack up with the rest of the CD but are worth a listen.
If you were there you'll love it.

At the beginning of the 1990s, before the charts became over-run with manufactured boy/girl bands a whole plethora of indie acts crossed over into the mainstream. This was due, in part at least, to the "baggy" scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s, which gave us dance/rock crossover bands such as the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays - both of whom are represented on this double CD - and put Manchester (or Madchester as it became briefly known) firmly on the map as the music capital of the UK. Yes, this was arguably one of pop's finest hours and of course the time when baggy, flowery shirts and bellbottom flared jeans were the order of the day. This album contains mostly chart hits from the period 1989-1992 and includes many big indie names from the early 90s scene including Blur, James, The Farm, The Charlatans, Jesus Jones, The Wonderstuff, House Of Love, The Soup Dragons, The La's and of course EMF (whose song Unbelievable was no doubt the inspiration for the album title). Some surprises here too, such as a couple of tracks from the mid-1980s (Pete Wylie, The Smiths, New Order) and an early offering from Moby. Of course many of the artists on this CD were one or two-hit wonders and most are longer around but who cares when the music is this enjoyable?

We've all grown up now, our Joe Bloggs clobber firmly put away along with our flares, All that remains is a hazy mishmash of memories and the music itself. This was when music finally sorted itself out after the dismal early to mid 80's, and a scene led by the Stone Roses & the Happy Monday's set the trend & paved the way for Britpop & most present day indie/guitar bands. This albums a pretty good slice of what it was like back then with some absolute classics(Mock Turtles, House of Love,The La's,Soup Dragons)but it all kicked off from Manchester & the Roses, Mondays, Charlatans & Carpets are well represented here. There's a couple of odd ones as well, how the Shamen's 'LSI' got on here is anyones guess and the Smith's 'How Soon is now?' was released in '84.
On the whole a good album, it would have been fantastic with the Monday's 'hallelujah', James' 'Come Home' The Roses '...Drums'& the Primals 'Loaded'. Still,Like most of the songs on this album, I've got them lying around somewhere. If you wanna know where Oasis came from & many bands besides, here's a good place to start. Now if I could just remember where I put that Joe Bloggs gear....

The front of the C.D has a list of band names (Stone Roses, Charlatans, Happy Monday's, Blur etc) that make it sound as if the album is a bona-fide indie/Brit pop compilation. But in reality it is anything but.

Sure there are some great tracks here. Happy Monday's-Step on, Soup Dragons-I'm Free, The Stone Roses-I am the Resurrection; but then for some bizarre reason you hear tracks such as MC Tunes v 808 State, The Shamen-L.S.I, Pop will eat itself- Def Con One....WHAT?

Why do these people do this? You find this a lot on compilation albums. Do they do this just for a laugh, or are they completely clueless?

At this price for a double album it is probably still worth the outlay if you are missing a lot of the classic indie numbers, but be warned, there are tracks on here that will have you exclaiming WHAT! at regular intervals.

Of all the various Madchester comps this one is about the best.
As Madchester is a name created by the media its not restricted to Manchester bands and this may very well have been the last great shout before pop music as we knew it disappeared in the 2000s in a haze of manufactured pop and downloads.
It would have been even better if the Family Cat and Michaela Strachan -whose "hits" have yet to be on CD- had been included instead of the Smiths and New Order but this is still a vast improvement on the SORTED CD
