I absolutely love this album. There are some stunning tunes on here - Monkey Boy, Sometime Sad Day and Shanghai Dub stand out as being really special tunes.
There are some very questionable songs on here as well though - but don't worry, they're on the remix section (disc 3) - not Goldie's own work. The worst has to be either Baby Boy's remix of inner city life (there is absolutely no reason in the world to remix this piece of work - you only need one version of this - the full length one on Goldie's Timeless album. The other contender for worst song of the collection is possibly Digital remixed by Armand Van Helden - the Yanks don't get drum and bass - they might like it - but they can't make it and they certainly don't know how to remix it. AVH is a great house DJ and has turned out some fantastic songs and remixes....but this ain't one of them.
That said, there is a Goldie remix of Swallowed by Bush, which is knock out - it's not just the best song of all the remixes, it's one of the best of the compilation!
If you like anything that you've ever heard of Goldie, then buy this - you'll be happy - then get some big, over ear headphones turn out your lights, lie on your sofa / bed and listen.
