I could continue because i have a lot more but it's only my top 20, not the billboard....

How i rate releases:
5. Exceptional
4. Excellent
3. Very good
2. Good
1. Avoid

As always, rating is a difficult matter. It's all about the kind of music you like to listen to. When i rate i'm trying to be as objective as i can be. For example, when i rate a release 1 or 2, usually i don't like the music style. But the rating derives from the total of the release, opticals and acoustics components.
The same goes with my reviews.
But, what's not good for me, doesn't mean that is the same for others.

The best of what ????? and don't tell me that back in 1993 we didn't have better songs, even though hardcore was at it's earlier stages. (e.g. Thunderdome)
Sadly, songs like Bonzai, Beat is flown and Royal king don't save the ship from sinking.

1997 was a turning point for hardcore music. I remember the latter collections being softer and more techno orientated, as some songs were slower. This phenomenon was more intense in the next episodes of the series, although enough songs were hardcore ... See full review

Another great example that some times ripping songs isn't so bad, as long as you give the appropriate credits. Mauro Farina (Radiorama, S.A.I.F.A.M. Team) and Fabio Turatti (S.A.I.F.A.M. Team) created a melodic cover of the classic song of Men at Work. ... See full review
