the ministory of sound have released another brilliant compilation cd, which has gone yet another stage further than the first cd, rescueing classics from being put to one side and forgotten. this cd has an amazing selection of great tunes which have been seemlessly mixed togethor by the ministory. if anyone needed reminded of why dance music has risen to become one of the biggest genre's in the world then this is the cd for you, and music lovers in lovers in general. what more can i say buy it
This is a very good album with a lot of great tracks, which can be hard to track down these days! The best of the lot are hear the drummer, rhythm is a dancer, show me love, let me be your fantasy, everybody's free, back by dope demand, to mention a few. This album really sums up the best tunes of the era, many are timeless classics. only gave 4 stars as the 2nd cd is a bit weaker compared to the first, I also think that vol 1 is a better overall album, but buy both and you won't need any other other old skool album!
Following on from the enjoyable, if scattershot Back To The Old Skool, this nostalgic double CD from British superclub/label Ministry of Sound looks to celebrate one of pop music's key moments: the acid house explosion of the early 1990s. Over its 40 tracks it too runs the gamut, from spirit -crushing bandwagon-jumpers (Baby D, Rozalla, Cappella) to lip-smacking game-changers, such as Future Sound of London's 'Papua New Guinea', Jack N Chill's 'The Jack That House Built', and LFO's 'LFO Leeds Warehouse Mix'. Dance music snobs who favour their expensive one-sided 12" white labels might well wish to sneer at the generic packaging and titling of this very lightly-mixed 2001 compilation, but it is also sprinkled with a few still-fresh novelty tracks (like Smart E's 'Sesame's Treet' and D-Mob with 'We Call It Acieed') lest anyone dare to take things too seriously.
