In the Book of Electronic Music, House was begotten from Garage. Garage was begotten from Disco. And Speed Garage, the prodigal son, returns home to the family in Speed, Volume One: Boomin' U.K. Underground Garage. Garage is characterized by vocals ranging from processed Chipmunks-esque singing to wailing female gospel, snappy little trippety-trip high-hat grooves, and muted organ punches. In fact, this disc adheres to the classic garage formula so consistently, it borders on monotony. However, since this is "speed" garage, after all, the formula is revved up with accelerated bpm's and injected with doses of jungle juice. Despite the pace, the momentum isn't multifaceted enough to sustain interest until the last track, but it will tap into the blissful memories of those who danced to the beat of the underground when it still truly was. --Beth Bessmer

"With the possible exceptions of "Let the Music Play," "The One," and "Made in 2 Minutes," I did not think there was anything new or special about this cd that I have not heard before. Therefore the cd was monotonous and dull."
Waste of Money ! ! ! Do NOT buy it ! ! !

"If you are looking for good Speed Garage, buy Basslines or Groove Radio International. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS CD."
Not the best of the SpeedGarage genre.

"Track one is monotonous, but things get kickin on track 2, Urban Spirits featuring Michelle Douglas "Saturday". Write song, wrong pace. What's wrong with this CD, 1) its not mixed, 2) the cadence is wrong, 3) because of one and two, the disc comes off as monotonous. The piano keys on track 4, Rhythm Masters "Let the Music Play" surely is great. If you like Drum & Bass, you WILL ride the baseline on track 6 P/D/S "Free" (Nookie Remix). Boomin! Bounce with me! Finally, one of the best SpeedGarage tracks on this disc, is last. Track 12, Manhattan Brooklyn "Join Hands", a proper, beautiful skippy SG tune."
