This review is from: Xen Cuts (Audio CD)
Okay... Fully aware that this is a "10 Year Anniversary / Best Of" compilation and all that... But it is 100% essential. While I was disappointed that this set was not mixed, I won't drop stars over it.
For those unfamiliar with the works kicked out by the various Ninja Tune artists: This is as good of a place as any. The included booklet will give you the low-down on the label's history and the CD's feature the eclectic sounds being dropped by the various producers, artists, DJs, and madmen that are all affiliated with the nebulous and at-time-enigmatic Ninja Tune.
Like jazz? Check it out. Hip hop? Check it out. Trip hop? Check it out. Drum & bass? Check it out. There's such an array of styles in here. But as far as being a "best of" --- well, for once someone delivers on that promise. This truly is the best of what Ninja Tune has to offer. Perhaps a little more Coldcut, but with so many artists...
