I after doing what extensive research I could, I got this set primarily for just a few tracks it contained. After checking the track information on the sites I researched, I confirmed that the CD is unmixed, and also confirmed the run times of the tracks I was interested.
While the CD is mixed using all radio edits so you really only get about 2-3 minutes on average of tracks that you really like.
The worst part is the posted run-times which vary wildly from site to site anyway, are much shorter. Example, after reviewing posted run-time on SUGAR IS SWEETER (Armand Van Helden's D&B Mix), I was expected the true run-time of the 12" release of about 8:30 or so.
I'm giving 2 stars cause it is fun to listen to to pass time and at least you get the vibe of some off those old tracks, but don't expect it to capture the magic of those old tracks cause the purpose of Old House Music is for a track to gain momentum so the listener its carried away with the rhythm. These tracks go in-and-out of tracks so fast due to the use of radio edits, that you really are getting a megamix
To do all of these tracks justice, it would have taken an 8-10 CD Box Set.
Yes MOS has gotten lazy and their annuals are crap but this is a wonderful mix from the era when MOS were great.

To bad I can buy this in iTunes. I thought I was getting a nice import that you def can’t buy in the USA. But having the physical copy was well worth owning it.Published 1 month ago by Christy Turner
I love Goldie but Inner city life seems out of place and like an afterthought after a mostly solid mix. The Chill out cd is underwhelming, but overall this is a decent collection.Published 8 months ago by Ninja Tune enthusiast
