great compilation, personal favorites are the BoC, Broadcast, Jimi Tenor and Red Snapper tracks, although heavyweights Autechre and AFX/Squarepusher both pull their own weight. not to be missed

Highly overrated mid-era Warp compilation. Really the only good and memorable track here is by the then-ascendant Boards of Canada. ("Orange Romeda" is probably just a footnote, however, when one examines their entire catalogue.) The rest is either dull and/or forgettable.

The Autechre track finds them in the early stages of their maddening decade-long exploration of non-music. Nightmares on Wax was near his creative peak when WAP100 was released, yet "Fishtail Parker" is just a goofy repetitive song with little to offer; similar results hamper the Jimi Tenor and Red Snapper tracks. Plaid, also in the midst of some very solid creative output, appears with one of their weakest tracks ever. The Plone track is just a sad reminder of Warp's ill-conceived (but thankfully short-lived) experiment with that outfit.

Certainly almost all these artists have done great things. It's just as if none of them wanted to part with their best work for this compilation. Perhaps this album is foreshadowing the decline in which Warp would soon find themselves. Avoid.
