Not only is this one my bargain of the year (£1.50 including postage!!) but it's also the surprise of the year - why has it taken me 20 years to find out about this one?

Then again, if I hadn't been looking for some old magazine cover CDs from the mid-1990s, I probably would never have found out about it at all.

I'm hardly a Warp fanboy, though - although I bought most of their early 12"s (from WAP 1 up to about WAP15) pretty much on sight, once the label moved away from rave bleeps I pretty much gave up on them. Hardly surprising though, as I was mostly only buying rave tunes at the time.

But I've always been open-minded; with a music collection ranging from opera/classical to hardcore punk/power violence, I ought to be :)

Which brings me to this.

I'm no expert on this type of sound, but another reviewer mentions Coldcut's "Journeys By DJ" mix, and I'm in complete agreement: it's just as good, with some similarities, but still very different. While I don't have many mixed CDs as unique as these, they are in my opinion equal in quality.

Gloriously trippy, and would definitely have been a perfect accompaniment to dr*g-fuelled mornings-after when I was younger and much more capable of surviving such substances. I can almost smell the high-grade wafting around the room :D

My only criticism is that it's just not long enough!

Love the cover art, too - It reminds me of some of the T-shirts I used to wear back in the mid-1990s.

I must now try and track down the original "Blech" tape - though, judging by the prices on here, I don't think I'll be quite as lucky as I was to find this CD so cheaply!

This mix has been part of my life for almost 20 years now. It's been the soundtrack to everything from drugged up nights and blissful sunsets, to car crashes and cold turkeys. Somehow it seems to suit all of those things.

Does anyone know the origin of the record title "Blechsdöttir" ? Something to do with Björk surname (Guðmundsdóttir) ?

Music released by Warp treated by the guys from Ninja Tune. One of the best electronic music mixes ever recorded and the quintessential guide to Warp in the 1990s.

A timeless set...eventhough it's predominetly what most would label simply as a set filled with "experimental" music...if u listen carefully, u can hear all the elements/genres of music placed together so carefully, and in a subtle manner, so it doesn't come off choppy...elements of jazz, hip-hop, house, techno, ambient, and electro all fuse here behind the music...a wise choice of records put in just the right places all coming from Warp's greatest artists.

Seriously one of the best electronic mixes out there. But then again, when you have such a fine body of work to start with, and two more than able DJs at the helm, what do you expect?

Right up there with Coldcut's JDJ.

This album is breath taking from start to finish. The mixing is seamless,and the music is culled from warps finest moments. A real contender for the "Best Electronic Album of All Time " category.
