Anthems II 1991-2009 - Ministry of Sound Album Review
Posted: 4th November, 2008
The Ministry Of Sound brand traverses borders like no other and is now a worldwide brand. A recognisable brand in the UK and Europe, the MOS phenomena reaches across the pond to the US and Australia too. Although the group has extended it's business to everything from fragrances and clothing to spirit sales and luggage, music is, and always will be at the groups heart.
In some respects a 'This Is Your Life' episode for Ministry of Sound, Anthems II, a follow up to last years epic album of the same name which racked up half a million sales, makes a return in time for Christmas 2008. A mix of a sizeable number of what are seen as some of the genres most classic dance tracks, mixed by the most legendry of DJ's, the three CD compilation that supplies over three hours of expertly crafted sounds makes a welcome return.
Anthems II is bursting at the seams with THE best beats and mixes by some of THE most legendary DJs of all time ranging from Armand Van Helden's 90's remix of Tori Amos' Professional Window through to Basement Jaxx's Rendez-vu to Eric Prydz's Pjanoo. From Orbital's Chime through to Daft Punk's Around The World, if that wasn't enough to get you excited there is also dance master pieces from: Faithless 'Insomnia', Livin Joy 'Dreamer', Modjo 'Lady' and Stardust 'Music Sounds Better With You'.
A must have for any lover of classic dance music, this compilation is the perfect, and ONLY place currently that condenses the last eighteen years of dance in one place.
