This stunning 41-track retrospective features 29 chart hits, including 12 Top 10s. Music Club Deluxe.

I've sadly found out (the hard way) that Music Club Deluxe (division of Demon Music-UK, I think) is yet another offender of ignorance to "music". They've released a few cool "looking" anthologies and unfortunately, through visual temptation and a couple of positive reviews, I purchased both this Hot Chocolate CD and the Chic anthology (Magnifique!)as well. I put the quotes around "looking" up there because they are quite attractive (real nice cover art) inside and out. Not much in the way of liners, but well done in the basic aesthetic of cover art/nice looking discs. and ya know, these WOULD BE excellent anthology sets, if it were not for one critical issue that's all too familiar for actual music folk...wait for it........
DREADFULLY OVERBEARING VOLUME and COMPRESSION! I just can't believe how these labels can GET AWAY WITH releasing sets like this, where the music gets no real respect and through straight up ear fatigue, has you WORN OUT / audibly exhausted within 3 minutes, if that. How the hell could someone actually listen to this for an hour to two? Just such a shame. And to say this about a group like Hot Chocolate or Chic (who both produced such sweet on the ears tunes. Feh..
Well, I KNOW how they get away with it: a generation of non music appreciating stepford humans who wear headphones 22 hours a day
Again, these sets are really nice LOOKING (I especially like the cover shot for the CHIC collection which pretty much defines the band in one picture) But unfortunately, when you actually start to "listen to the music" you realize you've just bought a generally useless collection; keep it for the cover art and packaging...just don't listen. Travesty.Read more ›
