Awesome and eclectic track selection. Some songs are classics ("Poison", "Going Out Of My Head", "Devil In A Sports Shirt (Casual)", "More Beats And Pieces") but most of them are such beautiful rarities which offers sometimes a dark atmosphere like "It's Murder Out There", sometimes a happier one like "Mind Party" and sometimes a more melancolic one with "Black Orchid" and "Boned".
Another good thing is that most of these records don't appear in any other compilations, making this set one of the best big beat compilations to get.

There's also a third CD featuring a mix from DJ Stix, known for being part of Dub Pistols.
He picked up songs featured on both previous CDs into a 50-minute long set. Transitions are good, but not outstanding. The sound has less quality than before, like it's been recorded in lo-fi quality.

If you're looking for an original release of electronic music proposing various ambiances for a cheap price, then this is for you.
