Critical response[edit]

BBC Music said of the first volume "Sometimes, the marching programmed beats can be a touch insistent, but the wild..." [2] and Allmusic in their 3/5 star review said "Overall, there is plenty to spin and take in, and being marred by a couple of cuts near the end spoils nothing. Check it."[3] Pitchfork Media also called the compilation "excellent".[4] http://www.theguardian.com/music/2006/jun/16/popandrock.shopping2
