I never really hear heads bring up either of these compilations. Both I copped both right when they dropped and still enjoy them quite a bit today. They're out of print, but you can get them fairly cheap used without difficulty.

The Japan release of the Unsung Heroes is particularly tight since it comes with a bonus mini CD of a few remixes. The remixes are either just as good or better than the originals in my opinion.

For those who have heard them, what are your thoughts and opinions of these?

Never heard of either of them, never even heard of Unsung Heroes.

Stimulated has a good line-up though.

Can you up a few tracks?

Aight, I guess the mods won't mind if I up 2 tracks from both. They'll be up in a few minutes.

Aight, here are two tracks from each release.

Unsung Heroes (for those who don't know, Unsung Heroes are a group of producers/DJs who fully produced this entire release)
Unsung Heroes - The Next Degree (ft. Siah) [remix]
(Listen how Siah rips through 3 or 4 different languages in the first few bars of his 2nd verse)
Unsung Heroes - A Changed Man (ft. EL-Fudge)

Stimulated Volume 1
Del tha Funkee Homosapien - Del meets the Dummies
Missin' Linx - Family Ties (ft. Prodigy) [Remix]

I highly recommend everyone pick up both of these releases (as I said before, they're out of print but easy to find used/cheap). Somehow both went under the radar, but are very consistently tight and among the better hip-hop compilations in my opinion.If you download, post some comments.
