AllMusic Review by

Compiled by dance label Mucha Mas, The Annual Compilation 2010 is perhaps one of the most generous collection of floor-fillers to be released all year, with a staggering 121 tracks included over six discs. Showcasing the biggest and best club anthems from the last 12 months, there are tracks from worldwide chart artists (Rihanna, Katy Perry), superclub DJs (Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia), and lesser-known underground producers (Julian the Angel, Stereo Palma), catering to every possible dance music aficionado's taste. Alongside remixed versions of worldwide number ones from Flo Rida ("Right Round"), Black Eyed Peas ("Boom Boom Pow"), and Lady Gaga ("Just Dance"), there are also reworkings of tracks by unlikely dance artists the Killers, Ace of Base, and Sia, contemporary interpretations of '90s dance classics (Steve Angello's remix of Robin S.' "Show Me Luv," Dave Darrell's cover of Robert Miles' "Children"), and multiple contributions from the likes of crossover acts David Guetta, Fedde le Grand, and Deadmau5. Particular standouts include the vocal mix of Kaskade's blissful slice of dream-trance, "I Remember," Sharam's pulsating Daniel Bedingfield-sampling "The One," and Agnes' classy string-soaked Europop smash "Release Me," but special mentions also go to Darbruck & Klein's remix of Energy 52's seminal "Cafe del Mar," Shapeshifters' reworking of Orbital's debut single "Chime," and Eric Prydz's hypnotic instrumental "Pjanoo." With tunes covering techno, house, synth pop, urban electro, and trance, just to name a few, there should be something for everyone on this extensive compilation, which contains enough material to see even the most dedicated clubbers through until next year.
