The standard of these Color Tapes compilations are unsurpassed in the murky world of reissued pop from the past.
Amid all the excellent Synthwave, there even lurks a forgotten Good Missionaries tune, which has undergone the aural modernising process of remastering....not that it makes much difference to the very Lo-Fi missionaries sound.
Plenty here to satisfy electro-junkies, as well as a splash of proto-indie from Lives of Angels to remind us of Color's other strengths.
I'd struggle to pick out which was the best volume from this series.....at the moment i'd go for Volume 4,tomorrow may have a different answer.
