Review by DjBatman
3 stars out of 4

An essential collection of FYC's greatest hits in extended/remixed versions: from the classic "She drives me crazy" (12" version and rap version featuring Monie Love), "Good thing" (12"), another rap version ("I'm not satisfied"), two manipulations of "Johnny come home" (one of which was made by S-Express' Mark Moore). Other remixers include Jazzie B & Nellee Hooper (aka Soul II Soul's production team), David Z, Smith & Mighty and FYC themselves, or better the duo Steele/Cox the musical part of the trio fronted by Roland Gift. The finest moments are Moore's mix of "Johnny come home" and "I'm not the man I used to be" with the Soul II Soul beat treatment. Simply perfect. The rest of the album is good but some duplicates may sound a bit redundant. The original vinyl had 10 tracks; the cd version has two bonus cuts including a version of "Tired of getting pushed around", a killer house track originally put out in 1988 by Steele and Cox under the alias Two Men, Drum Machine and A Trumpet.
