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

One of the greatest albums of all time. Amp is my favourite track; wish I could get it unmixed.

Wish I could download Beautiful Burnout (R59 Live Mix Version) but it's not available in my region.

The Kris Menace Remix sounds a lot like Out Of Control by The Chemical Brothers.
posted a comment on The Chemical Brothers - Elektrobank. about 1 month ago
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.

One of the greatest albums ever. I compiled a bonus CD after ripping WAVs from my collection with the following tracklisting:

1 Setting Sun (Instrumental)
2 Loops Of Fury
3 (The Best Part Of) Breaking Up
4 Buzz Tracks
5 Prescription Beats
6 Morning... See full review

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:

1 Front 242 - Happiness (Dance Mix By Underworld)
2 Bjork - Human... See full review

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

Fun fact: Bliss (Original Extended Version) is completely different to the album version on Meccano Mind.

Fun fact: the full version of Pray here is over 1 minute longer than the album version on Meccano Mind.

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: Taste Of Honey uses elements of their track This Is Not A Game from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).
posted a comment on The Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar. 2 months ago
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.

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.

Underworld are awesome. I first heard Cowgirl when I was a pre-teen back in the mid '90s and it was the greatest thing I ever heard in my life, especially considering no music ever piqued my interest up until that point. However, I had no idea who the... See full review

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.

Why are all of these crappy russian bootlegs allowed on Discogs? Should I add a bunch of CDs that I burned for myself to the database? Yeah, I didn't think so...

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.

This set is cool but a bit disappointing in a few ways. Aside from The Secret Psychedelic Mixes disc and a couple of somewhat rare remixes of Hey Boy Hey Girl on CD3, all of the tracks are quite common. Heck, even the Glastonbury 2000 concert on the... See full review

The music is good but the vocals are frankly terrible on a lot of the tracks. I would much prefer an instrumental version of this album.

As a huge Underworld fan, I already owned most of the remixes that are featured on discs 3 and 4 so this release was slightly disappointing. Still awesome but I wish there was more unreleased stuff like the previous Super Deluxe Edition sets.

Solid compilation but don't be a sucker and buy it like I did. Instead, get this: The Essential Collection

It's from the same label and has the exact same tracks plus a couple of extra tracks and a bonus DVD featuring a live performance.

After listening to this over the past almost 15 years, one thing always bothered me about it. It's such a phenomenal mix and tracks 1 to 8 are seamless yet tracks 9 and 10 (although they're great tunes) just seem like they're tacked on at the end... See full review
