Fair, but a somewhat disappointing album
on 22 September 2016
It's pretty good but it really misses what we could consider to be the best of the 90's bunch.
This disc offers quite a bit of entertainment, though the songs here are just your typical choices. Baby D, Urban Cookie Collective, Kenny Dope* Presents The Bucketheads, Adventures Of Stevie V. and the Bassheads are what made this a memorable edition to the NOW franchise. It could have showcased more wonderful classics that you don't see however, and for that it loses major points.
Quite good, yet quite disappointing at the same time. I was not fond of the choice to put late 90's songs for most of the CD, seeing as it was the early 90's that grabbed our attention. I did however like Bass-O-Matic's appearance here, and top notch tunes like Strings For Yasmin (TinTin Out) and Circles (Adam F). Overall, the disc offers some entertainment but not a whole lot. I found myself getting slightly bored.
While the first two discs are disappointing, the third is also disappointing to say the least. You have to enjoy Blue Pearl, Cathy Dennis and Bobby Brown for example, but the entire thing as a whole falls a bit flat. It doesn't really meet the expectations of what you would expect from a 90's dance album.
For that reason, this is a good album to collect, but I would personally go for 'The Best Dance Album In The World...Ever!' or the 'Ministry of Sound'.
