    Andrew's Review
Coming Soon...

Artwork Rating: 8/10 Extremely Good
This artwork is very atmospheric. I loved the open landscape designs, and the colour of the red sky is beautifully done. Possibly one of the best original 90's designs.

Disc 1 Favourite: M People – Sight For Sore Eyes
M People had a distinctive sound in the 90s and they had many hits. This isn't my favourite of theirs but I did own their greatest hits on cassette once so I was certainly a fan!

Disc 2 Favourite: Bobby Brown – Two Can Play That Game
Loved this since the day I discovered it many years after its release. Very funky and summery. An absolute 90's gem.

Overall Rating: 9/10 Amazing
This volume for me marks the start of some really good music for the rest of the 90s, and the quality was really stepped up I feel. Some tremendous anthems within these discs and lots of the music has lived on. Great 90's volume.

Andrew's Best 5 (as of February 2017)
1. Bobby Brown – Two Can Play That Game
2. N-Trance – Set You Free
3. (MC Sar &) The Real McCoy – Run Away
4. Nightcrawlers – Push The Feeling On
5. Alex Party – Don't Give Me Your Life

Andrew's Worst 5 (as of February 2017)
1. Nicki French – Total Eclipse Of The Heart
2. Mica Paris – One
3. Sean Maguire – Suddenly
4. Ultimate KAOS – Hoochie Booty
5. Simple Minds – She's A River

So I'm back in the game with these then & I'll be including the results of the sites' Now Rates which go all the way from 30 up to 92!

From a personal viewpoint this is an INCREDIBLE edition. So many dance anthems on that second Disc & one of my all-time favourite songs Oasis - Whatever wub.gif

The artwork is cool, love the red sky & desert theme. Pretty obvious what my Disc 1 fave is but Disc 2 is hard to pick - I'm gonna give it to Alex Party, one of the most feelgood 90s songs of all time.

So overall an 8/10 from me, many many songs I revisit.
