Well someone had to post it.
Definitely an improvement after the crud that was 14. Sharkey & Mark Smith comes up tops for me on this one followed by Dougal & Gammer, Scott B & Neo, & Hixxy & Recon in that order. I did enjoy all four disks even though there were a few tracks across the board that I weren't really feelin'.

I'm listening to one a day, don't wanna spoil the fun all at once
Hixxy and Re-Con today, and what a ****ing brilliant mix, some really catchy tunes on there and my first impressions of Bonkers 15 are amazing. For me personally, i don't think any of the other mixes are gonna do it for me, not quite like this one anyway. Sharkey and Smithy tomorrow...

Listened to the Hixxy & Recon mix today (monday) with fairly low expectations. Overall, I was really impressed. The track selection is so much better than the past like 5 bonkers, although there are still a few tracks that feel like they just don't belong. Heaven 7 - Dance Me and Frantic & Resist - Spend My Time are a couple of the tracks that stand out for me.
A definate improvement compared to some of Hixxy's previous efforts, which I can only assume is down to Re-'pretty green eyes'-Con's contribution.
Hixxy & Recon - 7.5/10
*edit* After a couple more listens I'm upping it Hixxy & Recon - 9/10
Listened to Sharkey & Marc Smith mix today (tuesday), and yet another good mix. Tracks that stand out for me are Cube:Hard & CLSM - See You On the Other Side and Fergus Mayhem - Take Control.
Sharkey & Marc Smith - 8/10
Scott Brown and Neophytes disk tanned, pants filled. Nuff said.
Scott Brown & Neophyte - 7.5/10
Finished listening to Dougal & Gammer's mix for the 2nd time but I'm just not feeling it. I really wish I was, but heh.
Dougal & Gammer - 6/10
Bonkers 15 - 8/10

I'm only into the first few tracks of Hixxy & Re-Cons mix and I couldn't be happier. Absolutly great. Will give a more detailed review when i'm done. And I wish I could do what your doing whittle, but the other 3 discs are still stairing at me

I too wasn't looking forward to Hixxy's mix but what a suprise! He's actually made an effort (...with the help of Recon!). It's much better than the Dougal and Gammer mix (which is less of a mix an more a load of their own tracks slapped together).
Shame the Scott Brown is just all bangin gabber style... I'd prefer a bit of the Scott we all know, ease us in gently and then rip the guts out my ears lol

CD 1 (Hixxy & Re-Con) - brilliant.
CD 2 (Sharkey & Marc Smith) - brilliant.
CD 3 (Scott Brown & Neophyte) - WTF worst thing I've ever heard.
CD 4 (Dougal & Gammer) - brilliant (so far (only on track 2)).
Will someone please tell me what kind of hardcore CD 3 is? I want to know so I can steer clear of it for the rest of my life! I prefer music with a nice, bouncy tune (toytown, timebomb, elysium), not music that makes me want to rip my ears off. It's worse than metal!
