Released to celebrate 20 years in the business as Underworld - because Karl Hyde and Rick Smith have made music together since the early 80s in various guises - this short, sharp collection is in contrast to its more comprehensive companion, Anthology 1992-2012.

And while it's combination of hits and classics, with a clutch of collaborations (the best of which is light and lilting drum 'n' bass opener The First Note Is Silent (by High Contrast with Tiesto and Underworld), means it's a little messy and lacking refinement, it will still have you nodding and noodling on the spot as the tracks simmer away.

And with the hammering Born Slippy Nuxx and spiralling, brain-rattler Cowgirl taking pride of place here, you can't really go too wrong.

Stars: 3.5/5
