This is quite possibly the most fun music I have ever heard. The amazing beats mixed with the African American voices on many of their songs are a very very interesting and amazing mix. These guys defined progressive house and this album proves that. The extra CD is an amazing addition containing many unreleased songs and acoustic versions and remixes of some of their hits.

I love The Singles Special Edition! The first CD contains all their best hits and the second disc contains remixes, unreleased and rarities. If you already have all Basement Jaxx albums (Remedy, Rooty and Kish Kash), you can even enjoy the album because the second disc. The second disc is a great add to the album.
