In fact, it's pretty bad.
Mark Eremite
Their music can be good for Chuck E Cheese celebration but can be annoying sometimes.
Kyle B. Swafford
Definitely not the house music that I enjoy listening too.

DO NOT BUY THIS CD. This is NOT in any way Progressive House. This is corporate America bastardsizing the name Progressive to get your money. Not even close to the music. Buy the Global Underground CDs, Renaissance CDs, latest Tranceport series. This is a shameful example of how corporate record labels hurt the electronic music industry and the loyal people that follow it. Shame. Shame. I am embarrassed by this and your tactics in advertising this CD to internet forums of loyal progressive house fans. I know the old cliche "To each his own." but this a slap in the face to the progressive house community.

The Best of House... hmmm after listening to samples I wouldn't call it house. Sounds more like RAVE music which is heavy. House is smooth and groovy. This music is hot and heavy. House makes me sway my hips, this music makes me want to jump up and down. For a good house compilation, check out Do you know house? Volume One by Dance Tracks (2001).

Not to say the cd is bad, only mislabeled. Four songs stuck out for me. Sandstorm by Darude is an absolute Rave classic. Then there is Do It Again, and Stomp to my beat. And then there is the mainstream Vengaboys Up and Down. My friend used to call their music Cheese. Vengaboys are in the same class as Effifel 65. Their music can be good for Chuck E Cheese celebration but can be annoying sometimes.

This music is a cousin of Happy Hardcore but definitely isn't house.

When it comes to electronica and house, it's not that hard for an album to strike a chord with some segment of the population. There are more than a few different species of rave music, and although it means critics can sometimes get bogged down in semantics (do we call this hard house? progressive? deep? industrial? techno? trance? digital box pop? blah blah blah), it also means, on the plus side, that there's usually something out there for all kinds of HouseHeads.

Ignoring the touchy subject of definitions, there's one thing that can definitively be said about this album: it's not very good. In fact, it's pretty bad.

So-called "newbies," seeking an introduction into or an argument for club music, will not be seduced or persuaded by this hasty conglomeration of petty and pretentious songs. The album labels itself as "Progressive House," which is a smug enough title as it is; then you have songs that, in deep bass, urge you to "Shhh...be quiet. Listen!" or that holler, self-righteously, "In the beginning, there was house music ... and from this groove came the groove of all grooves ... and then one day some DJs declared, 'Let this house be progressive!'" Give me a break.

There are some old standards on this record (emphasis on the "old"), so an argument could be made for it as some sort of record of house antiquity (if such a thing is even necessary). Darude's "Sandstorm" was once a club staple (and still calls up nostalgia among older ravers), Da Hool's "Meet Her At The Love Parade" is a song that will probably sound familiar to almost anyone -- it was once "progressive," I guess, but it's now the formula a DJ follows when s/he's run out of ideas.

My friend gave me this CD, and I've enjoyed it. I'm not much into any type of house/trance/rave/techno/syntho-whatever music so I didn't know if I'd really enjoy it, but I like it. Looking at some of the other reviews, it's probably not your best choice if you're a hardcore House music fan, but then, if you're hardcore, you probably shouldn't be listening to compilation CDs anyway ;-)
This is a good CD to put on when you're doing something, but I'm just not into this music for the sake of listening to, except track number 2, Castles in the Sky. All in all, if you can get this from a friend, do it, but I wouldn't jump out to buy it unless you had extra money.

Best of House vol. 1 was one of the first cds I bought as a "newbie." The collection of tracks is nothing spectacular. Then again, it's not bad either, but it is a good place to start for those of you newly introduced to electronica. Clearly, the person that claimed Best of House, "has no true value as a music CD," should not have bought a CD that was INTENDED for "newbies;" given the fact, he or she does not sound like one. But for those of you who ARE, I definitely recommend this one.

It's been awhile since i've seen such a badly mislabeled cd. This music is great for the garden variety of glow stick and baggy pants so called raver teens who are always asking me...what's that song that goes...or asks for Ian Van Dahl or Darude's 'sandstorm' constantly. The tracks on the cd are more what i would consider akin to happy hardcore only 20 beats per minute slower..There's nothing all that bad with this cd other than those facts. However, my gripe is with the fact that it's being hailed as something it isn't i.e. Progressive House...Not even close! Ifyou want a better mixed cd than this..get Paul Oakenfold's Creamfields, Cream Renaissance, or Sasha & Digweed's Northern Exposure. ALl of them feature loads better track selections even tho there may be a few tracks that some may consider to be cheese in the mix with some very choice tracks, however many of them on the former two cds i mentioned are gonna be considered to be trance. Of all of them i would recommend NOrthern Exposure first...less of the sweeping epic buildups of trance and more chuggy deeper progressive house style of music, overall. I see this cd as a shameless attempt of a major record label to cash in on using the name of a subcategory of electronic music (progressive in this case) and giving the average person an instant disliking of all that truly falls into the progressive house realm based on hearing this cd and not liking it. With tracks ranging from the commercial vocal trance of IVD, to the hard house noise of RObbie Tronco's 'fright train' , the mix doesn't make sense as a whole, and is very general electronic dance.Read more ›
