Either compilation album ads are getting better or we're becoming more easily pleased, but barely a post-9pm Channel 4 ad break goes by without us shouting THIS ALBUM LOOKS FUCKING AMAZING at the television.
Here's the ad for Scott Mills' 'Big Ones' compilation.[youtube]oPgdLGofI3U[/youtube] Is this actually the greatest album of 2010, or does the advert just make it look that way? Does the truth lie somehwere in the middle? Even watching it in the cold light of a Friday morning we're almost weeping with excitement.
This one, for the Ministry '80s Groove' album, also excited us.[youtube]TS1z2KrBpV8[/youtube] Somewhere in our Big Unordered Heap Of Compilation Albums we almost certainly have this exact album (just under a different name and with the tracks in a different order), but the ad makes us want to buy it all over again.
There's an R&B one as well that got us 'all a quiver' but we've forgotten its name (ADVERTISING FAIL) and can't find it on YouTube so you'll have to use your imagination.
