5.0 out of 5 stars In a word, "brilliant." March 5, 2004
By J. Lang
Format:Audio CD
Astralwerks has long been a guilty pleasure of mine. As a label, they're savvy in that they release artists that are already established around the world or already have major buzz. Their whole roster is a veritable "best of." This is a great start for people just getting into the blanket genre of "electronic" music. But for people who are used to these songs already, they've gone one better and thrown in a few remixes that are pretty good as well. All in all, there might be better compilations out there, but for a label as commerical as Astralwerks, it's nice to see them getting good music out in the mainstream. Having said that, I haven't listened to the Stacie Orrico track yet... ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Freq.Beats... at last, a techno compilation for today. February 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
You've seen the commercials for dance compilations "not available in stores" that promise you "the latest hits". If you had a kid that was into this type of music, you might order one of these Time Life compilations (Fired Up! is one such CD). You might even want a copy yourself. Usually, I'd say "don't bother". To the semi-avid nightclubber, these are the compilations to avoid.
So it was a surprise to see something slightly more up to date. "Freq.Beats" is from AstralWerks, a company well versed in pushing the envelope of electronica. True, there are some older tracks on this compilation (Fluke's "Atom Bomb" for one), but this is forgivable because it's such a great tune. Iceland (Röyksopp), Britain (Basement Jaxx) and the West Coast of the USA (Supreme Beings Of Leisure) share honors here, so you're getting a good range of international dance tunes. Which is good.
My one gripe: too many tunes from commercials. Still, at least it'll answer some of those "who sings this song?" moments when you see a Dentyne Ice ad (Gorillaz, featuring Damon Albarn)!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great June 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, this collection is a bit on the dancey side, less so on the "song" side. I guess with all of the remixes I should have realized this. I picked this up to get some songs I knew were good, interesting and hits--but beware. Songs like "Emerge" and "Days Go By" as remixed heavily and bear little resemblance to what you might want. Frankly the Days Go By mix is boring to boot. And songs that I already had, like The District Sleeps Tonight are the same as the album version. But that's just me: I wanted K-tel, they gave me remixes.
There are better snapshots of the dying embers of electroclash and much much better collections of modern technopop songs (Robopop Volume 1 or Electrcity Volume 2 are 2 that come to mind ;-) out there.
In the end this set just does not jell, it seems more like an attempt to use left over remixes and a few great tracks (Breathe, District Sleeps Tonight) to move some records. Eh.
