Editorial Reviews

2007 two CD pressing of hits and remixes from the world-renowned DJ. Few artists, in any genre, will ever have the degree of influence, power, and creative flexibility that Paul has had within the Electronic realm. From scoring pieces for the Matrix, to working with the Boston Pops Orchestra, to holding the claim in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most popular DJ, Paul has never slowed, and continues to break new ground and be at the forefront of not only Electronica, but the music industry itself. These are his greatest hits and remixes. 27 tracks. Ultra.

1.0 out of 5 stars Techno Oh No October 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Fans of Oakie in his prime are in for yet another disappointment- this isn't electronica, just rock. Oakie's been on a downhill slide since "Bunkka" and "A Lively Mind". There is so much better stuff on his releases of "Travelling", "Great Wall", "Ibiza" and the now relatively rare & costly "Resident: Two Years at Cream". Even with a teaser dvd, this just isn't worth it. If you're a true electronica fan, the new John Digweed's "Transitions 3" (with cd-rom),part of his ongoing series of ambient electronica is far superior to this mishmash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul Oakenfold- Greatest Hits and Remixes October 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Perfecto Records and Ultra Recrods present a compilation from one of the biggest dj's ever, with "Paul Oakenfold- Greatest Hits and Remixes." The compilation is a collection of the dj/producer/remixer's biggest hits, spanning from the early nineties to the present. It includes his productions from his solo efforts of "Bunkka" and "A Lively Mind" (including the hit singles "Ready, Steady, Go," "Starry Eyed Surprise," and "Faster Kill Pussycat") to a handful of Paul's remixed work (which is a majority of the album). The mix also includes some additional work to soundtracks, such as "Dread Rock" from the Matrix Revolutions, "James Bond Theme Remix" from Die Another Day, and "Jack Theme Suite" from the Pirates of the Carribean. In my honest opinion, these previous three tracks are far from greatest hits. Yes, they are remixes, but far from greatest hit standards- they are just medicore on Paul's production credentials. I would have much rather heard some of Paul's other remixes, such as Moby's "Natural Blues" or Dave Matthew's Band "As the World Ends" from the Matrix Revolution soundtrack. As for the album itself, it seems to be trying to approach a more mainstream audiance, which is sort of the direction Paul has been giving as of lately, by showcasing pop acts such as Justin Timberlake, Madonna, and Mark Ronson. Nevertheless, these remixes do have their moments. A few of the newer remixes includes acts Radiohead, Mark Ronson, Everyting but the Girl, and the reworked "Southern Sun", which showcases a more upbeat, club tune. The only complaint is that the song is too short for a club mix, only having the first verse and chorus, leaving me wanting more. The album is also mixed as a dj set (I would imagine by Oakenfold himself). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better OVERALL CDs in dance genre..... February 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am an Oakenfold fan and like the spins that he has put on several WELL KNOWN songs. That is where the beauty of this CD is at. Most songs you will actually RECOGNIZE and how he puts his spin on the original version of the song is notable. I felt the originals were better in some cases but I found it to be a great CD to listen to.

I've purchased tons of techno, trance, chill, etc. CDs over the years and this one ranks up there. If you want something that mainstream/ Top 40 listeners would relate to than this is a winner.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why not to buy this disc. May 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All the classic cliche tracks that Oakenfold beat to death over the last 15 years on one CD. Actually the import is a little more interesting because it has 3 CD's instead of the one lame disc they decide to release in the United States. The import is a little more interesting but not by much. I bought it to hear the 2 or 3 updated remixes and it was a waste of money in the end. I think there was only one song on the entire package that made it worth while.

2.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits & Mixes For Pop Culture April 3, 2008
By SlyDawg
Format:Audio CD
The days of Oakenfold being an early pioneer of trance and progression are over. As silly as it may be for us "trance heads", Oakenfold has made the switch into more mainstream music and mixes. The only thing that remains true are those distant memories of the club scene, where his mixes energized the crowd until the early hours of the morning. Thanks Paul!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good December 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some of the mixes on here are pretty dull, so for me I only listen to a few out of the bunch. I love Oakenfold though, and the songs that I do like are amazing. Great work out songs. If you are an Oakenfold fan, I think this might be your cup of tea. I would try to listen to the samples though first.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly junk
First, I really like a lot of Paul Oakenfold's stuff, but this album is mostly junk and not even worth glossing over. A great deal of songs you should never listen to. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Many remixes, but very little greatness
Let me preface this review by saying that I don't hate Paul Oakenfold. I don't have a personal vendetta to pursue against him, and in fact I absolutely love Bunkka and Tranceport. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars An insult to oakie fans and to the genre in general..........
I am surprised how he ever agreed to this 'greatest hits', as it goes against the very logic and definition of a rightful DJ and his mixes. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it if you already own other Paul Oakenfold

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory Oakenfold!
If you are even remotely into Paul Okenfold, you must own this. I can't think of one song that I skip over. A great gift for like minded friends.
