It seems also with the overall decline in sales of CDs that they have gone over two months as of writing without a new physical release a record. An example being that when Andrew Weatherall passed away, they initially posted on FB a picture of his Masterpiece compilation as a tribute; but then took that off and replaced it simply with a picture of the guy himself.

I have many records from their various labels and this can vary from ultra specialist house music to the absolute commercial and everything in between, take your pick. Reply Notify me Helpful. For one, they are the biggest name in all-encompassing dance music in the UK. They are an accessible entry into the wider world of this genre, a function immitated in other genres too. Seconldly it's not all pap, as some have pointed out. Their club is decent it's pricey but they play an intelligent mix in there rather than the contents of their Annuals and their online radio is very good - diverse in output and respected.
OK the shows are sub-contracted at least they're associating themselves with good music and putting out for free. But, yes there are downpoints. They used to be choice; now they're at the bottom of people's CD collections. They don't help themselves with their relentless push for money by releasing the same songs the same track can appear on so many CDs - some supposedly successors to others in a series. And their label often justifies the widespread cynism about dance music: that is is full of talentless girls singing provactively in sex-driven music vids.

I guess that's what happens when an organization gets so large. Innovation suffers. MOS produced several CD series that were really excellent but it now seems that all they are interested in is cramming as many recycled, overplayed tracks they can on a double cd so you're stuck with only minute snippet of each track.
And what's even sadder is their "chill-out" selections. Nowadays, they don't even to have a DJ compile the tracks anyone e. Chill-out Sessions Series. It's really sad. Ministry of Sound is no longer on my radar screen anymore. That's probably because everytime I look at a tracklisting of any of their CDs, I can't help but think, "Been, there, done that.

Ministry of Sound are part of the wider phenomenon of "dance" music going mainstream. A phenomenon which has been going on a long time, and which is here to stay. Back in the day, when the Orb were indeed doing the Chill Out thing so much better, and today's somethings were in their early twenties or late teens, and outdoor raves weren't sponsored, and the underground club scene really was for the true fanatics, and "Artifical Intelligence" was ahead of it's time, the idea of something like the Ministry of Sound even existing seemed impossible.
Surely, this stuff could never become commercialized? The mainstream will never buy it! But good vibes sells, and I reckon it was always inevitable that the marketing men would make some serious money out of dance culture.
