AllMusic Review by

"Pistenhits" translates roughly to "runaway hits," which, given the "Snow Beach Party" subtitle and cartoon of beery-eyed revel-makers in skiwear, gives you an idea of what this comp has to offer. It ranges from German-language pop from artists like Möhre ("Nackidei," the ABBA-ish pop of which is infused with animal noises), Zascha ("Schumus'n mit der Blus'n"), and "Ich Will Ne Frau Ohne Arschgeweih," which sounds like a football chant. There's also a sampling of Hi-NRG/Euro-dance tracks like "I Like to Move It," a pulsing remake of Asia's "Heat of the Moment," and Danzel's self-explanatory "Put Your Hands Up in the Air!" Of course, Pistenhits also contains what seems like the 8,000th "Frog" remix of "Axel F."
