Are You Ready to Dance? is an 11-track collection of extended 12-inch dance mixes of pop and dance hits from the late '80s and early '90s. There are a few good moments here, but the collection should be thought of as a dance-oriented party album, not a hit sampler, since all the versions here are different from the ones that received radio play. For dance fans, however, there are a number of good, inventive remixes, but there are just as many rote mixes that prevents the record from being necessary listening. Among the featured artists are Apollo 440 ("Blackout"), Rozalla ("Are You Ready to Fly"), Deep Forest ("Sweet Lullaby"), Cover Girls ("If You Want My Love"), Prefab Sprout ("If You Don't Love Me") and the Shamen ("L.S.I.").
