With a collection of scenes pulled from last year's crop of titles, Best of New Sensations 2008 has some very good picture quality. The image is solid all around with very little in terms of flaw, aside from some light grain and scenes with poor contrast. The release is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, which is kind of a letdown. As far as the sound is concerned the quality is very good as well, but nothing to write home about. The suitable 2.0 presentation captures all of the details, but as is the case with most compilation releases you can expect some pitch to the volume and scenes that range from loud to soft.
Body of Review:
New Sensations is one of the leading publishers in the field of pornography and there's no denying they have a multitude of girls at their disposal. Their I Love series is one of the most popular compilations on the market and there are several individual releases throughout the year that deserve to be checked out. Now that we're firmly into 2009, it seems fitting that New Sensations has decided to release a "Best Of" compilation featuring the most of what they had to offer from 2008. It's a solid showing all around and the talented cast of girls is second to none. The bottom line is if you're in the market for a fresh compilation with some really hot scenes you should definitely give this one a spin.
The first scene on this release comes from Addicted #5 and features Madison Ivy and James Deen. It starts out with an artistic narrative with Madison writhing on a sofa decked out in a dress with jewelry and the like. The black and white artsy-fartsy stuff fades away to color as Madison is fucking her own pussy with a dildo. She wraps one of her legs around her head and gets in nice and close to her privates. The artistic nature of the program continues as James appears out of thin air and sticks his cock into her mouth. After a while the fucking begins and that's when this scene finally gets going. James and Madison have a spark between them right from the start and there's a ton of energy and sexy as hell moments here. Madison in particular really shines in the scene, though she does spend a little too much time looking directly at the camera.
Ashlynn's Reality Check features Ashlynn Brooke and Billy Glide. The scene starts out kind of funny with Ashlynn and her peeps driving around looking for some random guy to fuck. They mess around with some guys on the street, Ashlynn flashes her tits, and eventually they come across someone jogging. Oh, and look, it's Billy Glide. That's not exactly a random happenstance as the scene would have you believe, but for what it's worth the sex here is pretty good. Ashlynn always puts on a solid show and Billy keeps up with her once they get back to her place. Aside from the beginning of this scene the rest felt rather standard and safe which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Dani Jensen and Johnny Castle appear in a scene from Trade School Sluts. It begins with Dani talking about her love of plumbing with some not-so-subtle innuendos as she relates a story about how she had to fix some dude's sink. It's very lame even by porn standards, but it sets up the sex so I suppose it's not all that bad. Thankfully, though she may be a terrible actress, Dani is awesome when it comes to what she does best. She and Johnny fuck like there's no tomorrow and the sex is damn hot. Dani really puts on an amazing show and there's plenty to love about the scene. She's just one of the sexiest redheads we've seen from 2008.
A scene from Daughter I'd Like to Fuck is presented here with Britney and Ben English as its stars. The scene starts out with a little tease and jumps right to the action with Britney going for Ben's dick. From there there's a little oral play and she hops on for a ride as Ben fucks her nice and hard. The do up a few more positions, but the thing that's most impressive about this scene is all of the details the camera and microphone catch. There are a lot of nice close-ups and the scene is full of gushy, squishy, and slapping sounds. Aside from the production of the scene, the actual action itself is rather tame sadly, and Britney doesn't put on as good a show as some of the other girls here.
Priya Rai and Alex Gonz appear in a scene from Cheating Wives Tales #8. This exotic beauty is stunning in just about every way and from her seductive tease to the moment she first puts her hands on Alex's cock, you just know the scene is going to be good. When the fucking starts Priya is bent over a pool table and there are some nice shots as she props her leg up to give Alex full access to her pussy. The tabletop sex continues as Alex tries to position Priya a few different ways in order to make the scene more interesting. Priya just seems entranced by his cock and does whatever she can to get it in her. All around it's a very seductive scene that looks great and features some hot action.
Milfs take Diesel closes out the first disc with a scene featuring Shane and Maria Bellucci. Things start out kind of backwards with Shane lounging around waiting for Maria to appear. He jokes around with the camera man a bit and after a few minutes Mari comes around to service his cock. They start out with a little foreplay and eventually Mari gets onto her back for Shane's dick. From here the scene plays out as they get into a few different positions and Shane continues to slowly fuck her. It would appear as though Maria doesn't like the size of his dick because she winces and barely moves throughout the scene. That puts the action all on Shane, who does a decent job, but not nearly well enough to carry the scene.
The second disc opens up with a scene from All American Creampie #2 with Jaelyn Fox and Jordan Ash. Jaelyn gives us a nice, yet brief, tease prior to having her hands tied behind her back and her face fucked by Jordan. There's all kinds of cock slapping and gagging here as she chokes on his dick, which isn't really my thing. Thankfully the fucking is much better and there's a high level of energy all around here. Jordan really gives it to Jaelyn hard, and she seems to like it. As the scene's namesake indicates it all ends with a creampie, which is pretty hot itself as Jaelyn fingers her own asshole while Jordan makes his deposit.
Tori Black and Alex Gonz appear in a scene from Fuck for Dollars #8. This scene wastes little time getting to the action as it starts out with Alex's cock already dangling before Tori's face. She gargles on his dick a bit and it's not long before the fucking begins. Tori puts on an incredible show as usual and she makes this scene one of the hottest ones on this release. This chick is insatiable and she gives Alex a run for his money. I particularly enjoyed the points during this scene where Tori rode on top as the camera captured some nice details. The scene ends with Tori sucking up every last drop of cum and swallowing it.
Naughty College School Girls #49 brings a scene with Ashli Orion and Jordan Ash. I don't believe I have ever seen Ashli in action before, and I must say if this scene is any indication she's going to have a nice following. As you'd expect the scene begins with Ashli dressed as a school girl, and lo and behold, Jordan comes in looking for some pussy. The scene plays out nicely with Ashli staying in uniform for the whole thing, but the sex itself is rather dry compared to the rest of this release. I did, however, enjoy it when Ashli climbed on top and rode up and down on Jordan's cock really hard. She really seemed to love it and fingered her ass for a bit as well.
The Beast is Back! loans a scene with Morning Star and Boz which starts out with Star traipsing around in a sexy baby doll. After some nice teasing, Boz appears and pulls out his massive cock for Star to suck on. There's little foreplay before the fucking gets started, and when it does Star seems to like what she's gotten herself into. The thing about this scene that is hot is that even though Star seems to be crying and whimpering due to his size, it really appears as though she's enjoying Boz's massive cock. At one point after a rigorous fucking he pulls out and Star quakes and shudders all over from an orgasm. It's incredible.
If you enjoy POV scenes then you're going to love Schoolgirl POV #2 with Lacey Maquire and Anthony Rosano. This scene is probably my least favorite of the bunch here. Lacey looks great and she delivers some nice moments during the sex here, but ultimately the scene is full of awkward camera angles and Anthony does very little work. The sex is kind of dry in all honesty and it's definitely not the best POV scene I have ever watched.
Sasha Grey brings New Sensations' Best of 2008 to a close with a little number from Rich Little Bitch with Mike Adriano. Sasha is up to her usual tricks here, and that is to say that she puts on one hell of a show. She and Mike have a great connection and there's a lot to love about what's offered here. It all starts out with Sasha going from high class to naughty as the scene devolves and Sasha gets fucked hard. About halfway through Sasha even gives up the anal and Mike nails her ass nice and deep. Anal is the name of the game for the rest of the scene and the performers really seem to enjoy it.
Best of New Sensations 2008 is an all around solid compilation with some great sex and outstanding moments from some of New Sensations' releases of the past year. Sasha, Priya, Tori, Dani, Star, and Ashli all put on a fantastic show. Unfortunately that's only half of what's here, and the rest could be categorized as good, yet generic and somewhat disappointing. Still, if you're looking for a compilation release with a lot of variety you needn't look further. This one has plenty to offer and there's something here for everyone.
