I am almost 37 years of age, which hardly makes me a cool indie kid now does it? Yet looked at the selection on this double cd and was pleasantly surprised that, not only had I heard of a fair amount of the songs/bands on this, but also how versatile and accessible this is. Admittedly, a lot of it I'm indifferent to (probably my age), but there is enough gems here to justify buying this, plus everyone will have their own taste anyway. The important thing is, that there is something here for everyone, it's not just obscure Indie Guitar Bands, there are also a lot of well known guitar bands featured like: Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Razorlight, Coldplay and The Magic Numbers etc, plus dance and pop acts like: Gorillaz, Goldfrapp and Scissor Sisters etc, plus it spans the generations because you have the likes of Paul Weller and New Order on it, and anyway you can always skip over the stuff that you don't like, but in the process of doing this, you may well discover some new bands to your liking, which can only be a good thing I think.
