This compilation includes the quite obvious hits throughout their career. In a way, the body is quite chaotic due to the timespan of the tracks (14 years). That's why the album doesn't work as a whole, but more of an ordinary "best-of"-album.

The second disc contains a couple of weaker tracks, but also stronger remixes from the likes of Lunatic Calm and Aphex Twin.

Serves as a good introduction to Curve, but their work still contains many gems to find. I would suggest picking their albums as a whole, starting from Doppelganger.
