Most of the selections hold up well, despite being tied to the club trends of the time. Highlights include the "Chicago House Club Vocal Mix" of "This Is for the Cool in You," the Timbaland remix of "Every Time I Close My Eyes," and the "Scratch Mix" of "My Kinda Girl" (provided you wish the new jack swing era never ended).
