One of the better compilations, this serves as a satisfactory starting point.

The first four tracks are what the prog fans will become most fond of, though tracks like Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn don't comply to chopping well.

The other half of the CD focuses on the 80's and 90's, but choose generally good tracks from that period.

Avoid if you're more prog focused, head straight for Tubular Bells, but those more in touch with pop music (Hah!) might benefit on giving this cheap disc a try.
