Would like to know what the track sounds like, but in my opinion, the artwork for this is bobbins!

Got the CD today - have only had a brief listen to the 808 track, and I like it!

I'll try and post a more descriptive review later, but at the moment I've got a hangover! :P

to be more descriptive I would say it sounds a lot like an Orbital tune....the rest of the album is not bad, well chilled, one for the late hours.


5 out of 10.

Just Got It

A slight change for 808 here, it sounds very like a remix of something on a 70's sci-fi soundtrack. A nice little pace to it, could this have grown out of the session for the Dr Who remix. Definately gonna fit a bit into my set when I'm out next.

L8RS,
John

PS And a big shout to Faith especially for the Kiss Me I'm Irish tattoo :D

did anyone else receive some free gifts with their cd? i got a little puzzle thing, a tiny notebook (with a message inside) and a sticker! i thought this was a nice touch from faith.

also got to wondering.. does anyone know how 808 ended up getting on this comp? ive not heard of any of the other artists on there, and from the looks of it blue bell is a small label in the US..

My copy arrived today, Metaluna is a great track with its nice little beat and strange soundtrack bit in the middle. Top notch! I'm not sure on the rest of the CD tracks, I need a few listens I think. Double happiness today as my copy of the 2 fat ladies 12" I've been searching for, for the past few years finally arrived!

I too wonder how 808 came to appear on this soundtrack? Graham?

JD, I also got a little notebook too and a daisy bracelet! right up my street!

Yeah, mine only came with the 'Irish' sticker than Ancodia got - great track, though, which does have some an Orbital-style to it - needs a couple more listens, which is possible now that the snow's arrived and travelling to work might be nigh on impossible tomorrow! :D :P

I'm not sure how the track got on there (presumably the record label contacted 808?), but I'm glad they did it! :D

l8rs,


Nick ;)

My copy arrived today with a wee notepad with message inside. Only listened to it once so far but Metaluna sounds good. I heard Baton Rouge for the first time yesterday having bought the Planet Electrica CD and enjoyed that too. I hope "So Hot" is out soon, can't wait to hear 808's version of Blue Monday! :D

To anyone who didn't purchase this CD yet, get a move on, it has now sold out @ Blue Bell:

02.02.07
* we recently sold out (!) of the "various artists - hear you soon : part one" album. there are some shops who still have copies in stock now, so if you want your very own, go to the bbr buy page to find yourself a copy before they're all gone!

Indeed, Norman Records in the UK seem to be the favourite UK seller.

Only recently found my CD of this (by accident) as there's nothing at all on the disc - just dark blue! :)
