AllMusic Review by

Deciding not to invoke the ire of rock gods Mick and Keith and their well-heeled team of lawyers, the duo formerly known as the Glimmer Twins made the decision to change its name to just the Glimmers. A wise move, to be sure (just ask Richard Ashcroft), as it's better to do these things before success begins to bring more and more media attention. And the attention has been well deserved, indeed. A series of thoughtfully laid-out mix CDs for the Eskimo imprint helped to further the cause that kindred spirits 2 Many DJ's and Optimo help to establish: to bring a wildly eclectic mix of new and old, popular and rare to the dancefloor and make them into a sensible session of dance music. This first mix for !K7's DJ-Kicks series keeps in that tradition, mixing Bis and Peaches with Bohannon and Chicago, and somehow has it all make reasonable sense and end up infectiously funky. Fans of their earlier works will find this equally as enjoyable, and new fans will enjoy a mix free of pretension and stylistic trends. And if you're not careful, you may learn something before it's done.
