      Disadvantages

      not bad

      The Queer As Folk series proved a huge hit when it hit tv screens about a decade ago. The show spurned countless spin-offs and also several music albums. This particular album seems pretty good value for money, as you get two discs, fourteen songs on the first disc and then a megamix disc on disc two.

      The first disc throws up a few treats. Suede's hip and happening 'Beautiful Ones' is an anthem for anyone with any fashion sense about to hit the town for a night out. Brett Anderson's vocal is full of swagger and the song is crying out to for you to adore it.

      Mainstream pop can be found in Rick Astley. 'Never Gonna Give You Up' remains a sterling pop gem with a suprisingly robust vocal from Rick and a keen catchy tune. If you like things more disco, then dip into Diana Ross for a touch of soul, before heading to the glorious 'I Feel Good Things For You' by Daddy's Favourite, which is a perfect record to warm up any quiet club, with a mellow groove and a funky bassline.

      OT Quartet deliver a trance tipped houser of epic proprtions, complete with a diva vocal and a breakdown to make the hairs on your neck stand on end. Sounds great when the piano riff kicks in. If this works for you, you might also like Urban Cookie Collective, which boasts a slinky vocal from Diane Charlamange.

      I can pass on Heather Small's 'Proud' which seems to have featured in too many ad campaigns of late and I also don't like 'It's Raining Men' which is way too camp and naff.

      The megamix CD is less appealing, as tracks by Kylie, Abba and even Air are given a dubious makeover. Save the megamix for a rainy day and stick with the first disc for a bit of disco pop fun.
