Music Reviews

So what if I liked the last album because the guitars were dropped? I was hoping with this remix EP, I would get some rather interesting mixes that would be perfect for club play. Eat Static provides the last remix, and it’s the only one really worth anything on here. The first three fall prey to your standard remix mentality: add a few extra blips and bleeps and drag the song out. I have a feeling that the die-hard fans might even feel a little cheated with this one, but I still suggested it for the Eat Static remix. It’s got more power than the original song did, and falls into what most of us would consider a remix: the complete altering of the original. Metropolis Records, P.O.
