Advantages: great to listen to anywhere
This has to be the best Reloaded compilation to date.
Overall, most tracks showcase each band's talent and unique sound. The selection of artistes chosen lends the CD a fresh, energetic mood, ideal for listening to whether in the car or just at home - as long as you play it loud!
As a means of finding new bands to listen to, these types of compilation recordings can sometimes be, for me anyway, extremely hit and miss. e.g. the dire pop series "Now" being the worst example!! This "Reloaded" series has none of those traits for me. If you like what you hear then I suggest you also check out the others.
You are bound to know most of the bands from radio airplay but I certainly discovered an appreciation for those others I may not have immediately taken to as I ended up buying four other cd's by artists included here!
In my opinion, there are a only a few "dud" tracks included (down to my preference!) but this is a good ratio for a double CD compilation set.
Definate value for money and and purchase I would strongly recommend to slightly more mainstream, guitar based music lovers to have in their collection.
