If you are looking to go deeper into the Acid sound this is a good place to start. Even if you love the acid squelch you are likely to go a bit mad after 40 tracks featuring it.

Checking the tracks out, some are more than 6 minutes, yet only 3 minutes 59 seconds on this box set, and similar with other tracks?
Rare tracks and old acid standards. I think this was one of the first CDs that featured these rarer cuts, that before had been released on various U.
Jack Frost tracks especially are essential. The sound quality is also good, these are not lifted from the vinyls, or if some are, they have managed to clean the tracks very well.

It's a sentiment they express on the lead-off "To Feel Good" and one that could seem trite if not for lead singer Austin Williams ' grounded lyrics about growing up on the dole, dreaming of a music career, and as on " Desire," realizing the need to celebrate small joys like hanging out with friends at your local pub.
The pub in question, and the inspiration for the album's title, is purportedly an establishment called The Emerald in the band's hometown of Birmingham. It serves as a kind of symbolic touchstone for Williams and Swim Deep , who fill Emerald Classics with buoyant anthems about choosing to take a positive view in light of the often dark and depressing nature of life in the 21st century. Of those artists, Brown 's laid-back, post-Madchester electronic psychedelia is the closest to the sound Swim Deep are going for on Emerald Classics.
If their sophomore album, 's Mothers , found them moving away from the more esoteric, shoegaze-esque indie rock of their debut and towards a hooky, '90s-style dance-pop, then Emerald Classics fulfills that transformation with songs that float upon shimmery synths, woozy club beats, and brightly ringing guitars. That bright, floating quality applies to the songwriting as well, as cuts like the "Top of the Pops," "World I Share," and "Father I Pray" are more straightforward and not as sonically experimental as past work.
Occasionally, that pop-oriented approach combines with Williams ' soft, breathy vocals to momentarily sap the album of its momentum. That said, there are engaging moments here, as on the shimmery, electronic-tinged "Happy as Larrie" and the effusive '80s club jam " Desire.
There's a maturity to Swim Deep 's aesthetic choices on Emerald Classics that transcends the brash discovery of their first two albums, speaking rather to their growing sense of place in the world.
