      Cheap and very very very cheerfully awesome :D

      I saw this Album advertised on the television and have wanted it since! So when i saw it in HMV in the 2 for £10 section i had to grab it! This is 5 disk Album is imense! Competely packed with songs you will know from different parts of the 90's. Including different styles of music from Rap on disk 5, Punk/ Indi/ social anthems with 'Design for Life' on Disk 2 and then of course you've got the cheesy pop on disk 1 with hits like 'Baby One More Time'. I think it is rather fair to say that every hit is an all time classic. I was born in the 90's so for me this collection of awesome hits is perfect! The first CD oozes with cheese of the 90's that just gets you in the mood for dancing and going out! And in fact most of the CD's in this compliation are as cheesy as each other! As soon as i put the first CD in i was singing my heart out by halfway through track 1! List for Disk 1: Take That - Never Forget All Saints - Never Ever Michael Jackson - Black Or White Britney Spears - Baby One More Time Christina Aguilera - Genie In A Bottle Westlife - Flying Without Wings Backstreet Boys - I Want It That Way NSYNC - I Want You Back Five - Keep On Movin' Steps - Tragedy Aqua - Barbie Girl B*Witched - C'est La Vie Gina G - Just A Little Bit Eternal Featuring Bebe Winans - I Wanna Be The Only One Peter Andre - Mysterious Girl M People - Search For The Hero The Rembrandts - I'll Be There For You Des'ree - Feel So High East 17 - It's Alright Lighthouse Family - Lifted As you can see it includes loads of amazing songs from some amazing people that were discovered in the 90's such as C'est La Vie which is a personal favorite of mine! And as you can see all of the tracks are from different parts of the 90's. Disk 2: Blur - Girls And Boys Manic Street Preachers - A Design For Life New Radicals - You Get What You Give Babybird - You're Gorgeous Wannadies - You And Me Song EMF - Unbelievable Soul Asylum - Runaway Train The Boo Radleys - Wake Up Boo! Erasure - Love To Hate You Mark Owen - Child A Tribe Called Quest - Can I Kick It? Primal Scream - Rocks The Farm - All Together Now Reef - Place Your Hands Chumbawamba - Tubthumping Jamiroquai - Cosmic Girl Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply Travis - Why Does It Always Rain On Me? Republica - Ready To Go Baddiel, Skinner, Lightning Seeds - Three Lions '98 Some more of the mellow tracks on this one. I was listening to this while playing scrabble with my flatmates and it's perfect for conversations and entertaining purposes with that hit of 90's and yet it's not screaming at you like The Hives. Altogether i think this collection of awesome tracks is definately worth buying! You will spend hours listening to it and it will definately make you happy if you're at all in a sad mood! I would fully reccomend it and would buy it for everyone for christmas this year! Disc 3 Fatboy Slim - Praise You Olive - You're Not Alone De'Lacy - Hideaway Robert Miles - Children Snap! - Rhythm Is A Dancer Robin S - Show Me Love Felix- Don't You Want Me 2 Unlimited - No Limit Phats & Small - Turn Around Shanks & Bigfoot - Sweet Like Chocolate Dr. Alban - It's My Life Culture Beat - Mr. Vain Haddaway - What Is Love Strike - U Sure Do Aswad - Shine Xpansions - Move Your Body N-Joi - Anthem Alison Limerick - Where Love Lives Baby D. - Let Me Be Your Fantasy Everything But The Girl - Missing (Todd Terry Mix) Disc 4 George Michael Duet with Elton John - Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me Simply Red - Stars TLC - Waterfalls The Corrs - What Can I Do? Melanie C - Northern Star Gary Barlow - Forever Love Spin Doctors - Two Princes White Town - Your Woman Londonbeat - I've Been Thinking About You Big Mountain - Baby, I Love Your Way Shabba Ranks - Mr Loverman Ini Kamoze - Here Comes The Hotstepper P.M. Dawn - Set Adrift On Memory Bliss Color Me Badd - I Wanna Sex You Up Another Level - Freak Me Toni Braxton - Unbreak My Heart Usher - You Make Me Wanna.... LeAnn Rimes - How Do I Live Tina Turner - Goldeneye Annie Lennox - Walking On Broken Glass I personally love this CD, i love Gary Barlow's songs, he is a fantastic writer and it's fantastic to see that he went Solo and it's even more good that it's on an CD along with the likes of Melanie C- Northern Star along with LeAnn Rimes makes this CD more of a ballard/ love song CD which is perfect for romantic dinners and sensitive moments. Disc 5 Kylie Minogue - Better The Devil You Know Chesney Hawkes - The One And Only Boyzone - No Matter What C & C Music Factory - Things That Make You Go Hmmm The B-52's - Love Shack Shamen - Ebeneezer Goode Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy Babylon Zoo - Spaceman Scatman John - Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop) DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Summertime Lou Bega - Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of...) Robson & Jerome - Unchained Melody Mike And The Mechanics - Over My Shoulder Martine McCutcheon - Perfect Moment Zoe - Sunshine On A Rainy Day Tin Tin Out featuring Emma Bunton - What I Am Sophie B. Hawkins - Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover R. Kelly - I Believe I Can Fly Ricky Martin - Livin' La Vida Loca Billie - Because We Want To As you can see it's got all of the all time classics of the 90's including Billie piper, Right said fred, Boyzone, Take that, Chesney Hawks and every other awesome song of the 90's. This last CD is a weird mix with some Rap and other Pop cheese hits, not exactly the mix i would have gone for but it's interesting i guess. Altogether if i had to make the decision of whether i would buy this CD again, i would do it all again and again and again!

        A great album full of 90s music!

        Ah the 90s. A slightly odd decade in musical history, and the one I grew up in - I was five at the start and fifteen at the end, so throughout my formative years was subjected to all this wonderful era has to offer. Seriously though, the 90s was full of - shall we say - a wide variety of music, everything from boybands to dance to indie. This music was the soundtrack to my childhood, and even at uni I used to go to a club night that specialised in early 90s dance (it was brilliant!). Until recently, when I lived in Sheffield, I used to go to a 90s bar, which was when I realised that I was getting old! I won't go through each track one by one, as this CD contains FIVE discs and ONE HUNDRED songs. That's right - 100! All the 90s music you could possibly want! The first CD opens with Take That's classic Never Forget (after which the album is named) and including such classics as Baby One More Time by Britney Spears, Black or White by Michael Jackson and C'est La Vie by B*Witched. Not forgetting Steps' cover of the Bee Gees' Tragedy, or Gina G's Eurovision entry Just A Little Bit. This CD is pure pop and would be the ideal accompaniment to a party! The second disc includes some of the best indie songs of the decade, such as Girls and Boys by Britpop band Blur, Wake Up Boo! by the Boo Radleys, and A Design for Life by the Manic Street Preachers. Having said that you also get Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden and the Three Lions '98 football song. Not forgetting the New Radicals You Only Get What You Give and the uplifting You and Me Song by The Wannadies. If you can't stand pop music, perhaps this CD will begin to redeem the decade in your eyes. Or maybe not. The third CD goes all dance on us, with some of my favourite 90s dance anthems, including Rhythm Is A Dancer by Snap!, Show Me Love by Robin S and Haddaway's What Is Love. The later years of the decade are represented by Phats & Small's Turn Around and Sweet Like Chocolate by Shanks & Bigfoot, which in my opinion just don't compare to the earlier tracks. By the fourth CD, any pretence of order and logic has gone out the window as we are treated to Northern Star by Melanie C (my personal favourite track by any ex-Spice Girl ever), Waterfalls by TLC and Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton. I often find myself skipping several tracks on this CD, particularly Stars by Simply Red (my friends and I used to have a picture of Mick Hucknall on the inside of our front door at uni; beneath the picture was the warning 'Do Not Open the Door to This Man') and Forever Love by Gary Barlow, who just wasn't as good without his Take That bandmates. The fifth and final disc again has rather a random collection of songs, however several of these are 90s gold - Kylie Minogue's Better the Devil You Know, Boyzone's No Matter What (probably my favourite Boyzone song) and the awesome The One and Only by Chesney Hawkes, beloved of students everywhere. Also included are Babylon Zoo's Spaceman, Scatman John's bizarre Scatman (two songs I remember from primary school!) and the dubious I'm Too Sexy by Right Said Fred. The album closes with Billie's (now Billie Piper, the serious actress!) debut single Because We Want To, an odd choice but it somehow works. This CD collection is fantastic and excellent value for money for 100 songs. It is currently available on Amazon for under a tenner from third-party sellers which is really cheap considering what you get. Even if you hate the 90s you will probably find a few songs you like on here - there is so much variety. If you love the 90s, what are you waiting for!?

          really good

          Never forget the nineties. How could I, when it threw up such classics like Vanilla and Bomballerina, well maybe not those those two then. There are one hundred songs on this album. I'll pick a handful and showcase some of my favourites. Take That's epic and overblown 'Never Forget' is testament to Barlow's songwriting skills, showing a discipline and maturity beyond his years. It is rousing, sentimental and the choir at the end, such bliss! Britney Spears I used to love, buying her every release. 'Baby One More Time' is proper Britney, great hook, solid song and all the key ingredients for a pop track. At the opposite end of the scale, Desree's 'So High' is a chilled piece of soulful pop with a vocal that drifts along like a balloon scaling a skyline. Desree sounds slinky and sexy though. Boyband fans will be catered for with N Sync and Westlife, which is pretty pleasing stuff. Luckily, disc two throws up some indie tracks, so dip into the gorgeous Babybird with, er 'You're Gorgeous.' Intelligent and lewd lyrics and a sassy tune to boot. Next head to Soul Asylum where 'Runaway Train' will take you on a journey into grim territory. Pinder's vocals are heartbreakingly bleak. For something more uplifting, The Wannadies offer a short burst of rock energy with 'You And Me Song.' There is a good selection of dance here too, remember Dr Alban and Culture Beat? They sit well alongside the feisty Robin S. 'Show Me Love' is a real showstopper with a great bass hook. Then we have the depressing 'You're Not Alone' by one hit wonder Olive, which always makes me sad. If you want some summery vibes, these will be handled by Shabba Ranks. The scary bloke raps so deeply you can feel the floor vibrate on 'Mr Loverman.' Aswad turn in the bright and captivating 'Shine' which always makes me think of warm July nights. Cheesy pop corner next. Kylie, Right Said Fred and Ricky Martin tick all the right boxes, 'La Vida Loca' is great fun with the brass fanfayre. There are some misfires though. Martine McCutcheon's dreary 'Perfect Moment' is impossibly boring and Tin Tin Out and Emma Bunton's 'What I Am' is a dismal and lax song which should never have been a number one hit. Overall though, loads of songs and so many good choices!
