AllMusic Review by Joshua Glazer

Based on the legendary London club of the same name, the first two Live at the Social CDs captured former resident DJs Jon Carter and the Chemical Brothers at the height of the big beat maelstrom that hit clubland in the mid-'90s. This third edition, a double CD, showcases the diversity of music that made the Heavenly much more than just block-rockin' central. The first disc, mixed by Weatherall, is a deep house affair that is not afraid to take chances. Weatherall chooses tracks that are not only deep and funky, but contain a novel spacey tone. The winner is unarguably the mix by Richard Fearless, who is more widely known as the man behind the electronica/rock crossover group Death in Vegas. Fearless leans heavily on the Detroit-Germany musical axis. The mix opens with the fashioned damaged "Eurotrash Girl" by Chicks on Speed and bounces around dark electro territory with tracks by Detroiter Keith Tucker and the king of Munich, DJ Hell. Fearless gives a nod to Weatherall by including the Two Lone Swordsman remix of the Weatherall-produced Primal Scream before jumping from electro to techno via the Belgian-produced/Detroit-released "Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass" by I-F. Then it's techno classic after classic by Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, and Ron Trent. Combined, these two mixes maintain the Heavenly label of quality, long after the big beat trendies have moved on to the next thing.
