When the heck did reviews on Discogs turn from being about the actual music to being about the quality of certain pressings?

The Chemical Brothers - Do It Again
posted a review of The Chemical Brothers - Do It Again. 10 months ago
Clip Kiss + No Need are the 2 B-sides. Plus, an extended version and 2 remixes. I’d say it’s worth it.

NUXX is not the original Born Slippy… the original has no vocals. NUXX was a B-side that gained popularity later thanks to being featured in the movie Trainspotting.

This is one of my favourite Balance sets. Both discs are awesome with CD1 being a live mix.

Flawless mixing and excellent track selection with loads of groovy basslines.

This is a solid collection of remixes for sure and I especially enjoy the Masters At Work remixes of Around The World which are fantastic. However, there are some tracks missing so I recommend burning your own second disc:

No messing around in these mixes. This is mid-'90s Moby at his best. I listen to this more often than the album.

In 2016 after Porcelain: A Memoir debuted, Moby let a bunch of labels release remixes of some of his tracks; namely Go, Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?, Natural Blues, and Porcelain. Some of the labels and their remixers stepped up to the plate and did... See full review

Ancient Phat Farm Coat is one of Underworld's best tracks. Try to get the unmixed version that's almost 20 minutes. It's awesome.

For whatever reason, I keep going back to this one even though I own plenty of Bedrock releases. Nearly every track is top-notch with my favourite stretch being Sensation / Hold You In The Moment / Revenge Of The Fantasy.

Where can I buy this? I'm in Canada and all the webstores I tried are region-locked. I want to actually have the file, not just stream it.

The Kris Menace Remix sounds a lot like Out Of Control by The Chemical Brothers.
The Chemical Brothers - Elektrobank

This is one of the best EPs from The Chemical Brothers. However, this particular release has far too much silence at the beginning of each track (about 3 seconds) which is kind of annoying. Oh, and track 1 has weird clicking near the end.

Indeed and these remixes are top-notch! I literally just ripped some WAVs from my CD collection and burned a CD (yes, I still do that) this morning with the following tracklisting:

This edition is awesome with plenty of collected B-sides on disc 2 but it's missing the tracks Take California And Party, Bang On! (Wrecked), Velvet Pants (Spare Pair Mix), Props Got Skills, and Props Got Mo' Skills. I don't know... am I missing... See full review

Anyone else's slipcase peeling at the edges? I barely touched mine and it looks like it's been through the wringer.

Syntax is amazing and Meccano Mind has to be the most underrated album of all time. I'm glad I own the 2 CD singles as well but they have released plenty of rarities that I can't seem to get my hands on. For example, the Japanese edition of the album... See full review

As a fan of theirs since the late '90s, I must say that Raindrops is my favourite Basement Jaxx track. Highly underrated tune.

The original instrumental version of Born Slippy has been released on vinyl and CD many times starting with jbo29 back in 1995 - Born Slippy. Are you thinking that Born Slippy .NUXX is the original?

Warning: if you want to buy the bonus track "Seal" from Beatport, don't get the one that has the track ID of 12275351 as it contains errors from 0:29 to 0:42. If you can, get track ID 12383056 instead because that one's error-free.

Fun fact: the original version of Star Guitar here clocks in at 6:55 and is about 30 seconds longer than the album version. Specifically, it contains 2 approximately 15 second long segments near the beginning and end that aren't on Come With Us.
The Chemical Brothers - Do It Again

This was the final official CD single from The Chemical Brothers. I miss the era of great B-sides (of which there are 2 here) and collecting awesome EPs that complement their albums so well. Downloading stuff just isn't the same.

My copy seems to have an error at 0:21 on track 2. There are no markings or scratches on the disc yet it sounds like it skips once very briefly at this point. Does anyone else have this issue?

Brilliant songwriter and singer. Songs with many layers both musically and lyrically are hard to come by but Gregory executes his craft perfectly in this regard. An old soul for a new age.

This album's great and it has aged fantastically - fat basslines and bouncy beats plus awesome rap guests like The Last Emperor and Phife and Terra Deva kills it as usual. I dig it.
