It's a CD. It's also a tombstone. A tombstone, rapturously signifying the utter, total, complete death of the DJ mix album. They're done. All the good ones have been made; don't buy any more. No offense to good John Peel, the people's DJ from Liverpool, cool enough for kids and adults alike, whose decadently eclectic taste in music runs the gamut from punk to noise to Motown, and has found ardent fans on BBC's Radio One for years. But here, his charming interspersed banter is absent from this truly eclectic, yet slammed-together selection. Why bother when you can stream his show from BBC.com?
