THIS WEEK'S CD NEW RELEASES.

YORKSHIRE'S Embrace burst brashly on to the scene in 1998 with their critically acclaimed debut album The Good Will Out, which shot to number one and has now sold over half a million copies.

Immediately siezed upon as rivals to Oasis with their anthemic sound and mouthy frontman in Danny McNamara, their new long player should cement that reputation.

With a little more whimsy and less out and out rock than The Good Will Out, the new record Drawn From Memory (released tomorrow) could be the album for the summer.

L.G.

JAM-PACKED with the latest tunes, at first glance In The Mix 2000 looks great. Sadly it isn't.

The mixing is basic and predictable and it fails to hit the spot.

THE soundtrack to Whatever Happened to Harold Smith, the latest British movie to hit the big screen, is a great slice of nostalgia bringing back fond memories for anyone in their thirties.

Set in the late 70s when disco was battling with punk for chart supremacy the film brings together original artists ranging from the Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols and The Clash to the Bee Gees, Heatwave and The Real Thing.

L.G.

IF you like it heavy then Hard House Anthems is for you. The new double CD mixed by Fergie and BK features the best of the hardest tunes on the stomping dancefloors at the moment.

Features tunes from Mauro Picotto, Lisa Lashes and the late, great Tony De Vit.

A.F.

CD1 of Serious Sounds of Sonique is a real belter, packed with pumped up funky house.

CD2 (my favourite) is darker and trancier, featuring Perfect Phase Horny Thorns and CRW's I Feel Love. Great stuff!
