Released a few months after the popular U.K. film StreetDance 3D, Streetdance 2010 is a double-disc compilation of electronic dance music with a distinctly urban style. Though the predominant style of the compilation is U.K. garage, a wide range of styles is heard over the course of the 40 tracks, the majority of them from London-based producers and vocalists. Highlights of the first disc include the smash hits "Just Be Good to Green" (Professor Green), "Dirtee Disco" (Dizzee Rascal), "Good Times" (Roll Deep), and "What's It Gonna Be" (H "Two" O featuring Platnum). Highlights of the second disc include the smash hits "One" (Swedish House Mafia), "We No Speak Americano" (Yolanda Be Cool & D Cup), "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" (Pitbull), and "Day 'N' Nite" (Kid Cudi vs Crookers). Not all of the tracks were smash hits along these lines, and some are played out, if not altogether out of date. Nevertheless, you get a lot of bang for your buck with Streetdance 2010, a compilation chock-full of bona fide hits. The timing of the album's release just a few months after the success of the film StreetDance 3D is certainly suspect. Make no mistake, this is a cash-in compilation, but at least it's done well and lives up to its television-promoted hype. You can get a lot of hit songs at little cost on Streetdance 2010.
