CD Reviews

Reprise Records fire up the dancefloor -again!

"Ok, the track listing: 1 H&H Mix/ 2 Hybrid Mix/ 3 Rennie Pilgrem Thursday Club Mix/ 4 Club 69 Trance Mix/ 5 Club 69 Trance Dub/ 6 Club 69 A Tranceapella. Now, who is the A&R Man at Reprise? Somebody tell me please. The man is a true Hero and my inspiration. Here we have another example of real A&R -taking a track and using it in every which way to access a larger audience and, as a spin off, making the track more interesting. Ok it may hurt the rock fans who cherish the original version but it pays to work every sector of the music community -I'd never heard of Filter before but now, thanks to these fabulous mixes, I've ordered their CD. If you've heard these already in a club somewhere, you'll know what I mean when I say these mixes are BLINDING! The most exciting mix, for me, is the Club 69 Trance Mix. I haven't been too switched on by recent 69 offerings but this is one of Rauhofer's best -major dancefloor damage with brilliant Perfecto-like keyboards and those legendary chunky beats riding under the restructured and dreamy vocals! I can't get enough. The Hybrid Mix is pretty fabulous too with a moody, futuristic feel and BT-like beats & sounds. The Rennie Pilgrem Club Mix is an underground dub excursion with backward/ mashed up vocals, electro-like beats, ringing percussion and wah-wah keyboard slides. The H&H Mix is an alternative rock interpretation by Producer Ben Grosse. The song is great -even in it's original form- and shines bright over the dancebeats. I love the screamed line "Dad, what do you think about your son now! " Dreamy, delicious and totally worth checking out. What are you waiting for!"

"This single is so great. Not only are the mixes outstanding and long, (not to mention very dark), but it also includes two music videos. The "Hybrid Mix" is a harder trance mix. The "Rennie Pilgrim Thursday Club Mix" is a smooth trance mix which will put you into euphoria. The Club 69 mixes are so dark. Perfect mixes for the perfect song!!"

"I was kinda (okay, really) disapointed with the remixes on this single. None of them are bad but they are all in a genre I don't particularly like (apparently Trance). I really despise the Club 69 mixes, again they aren't bad but they are really dark and weird sounding which doesn't appeal to me. The second and third remixes, there are parts that I like, that sound sort of shimmery and ethereal, but other parts (generally with strange buzzer-type noises) that I can't stand enough to avoid listening to either of these mixes. The only mix that I like is the H&H mix, that, while it doesn't stray too far from the original, and unfortunately isn't of an extended length, has a more dancable beat behind it than the album version, that I like. Basically, if you like the version you hear on the radio you'll probably like this version.Another minor gripe is that while the CD *is* enhanced, and contains both high and low quality versions of two Filter videos (if you have an old computer you'll definately appreciate the inclusion of the lower quality versions), they are NOT in a kiosk format, meaning, you don't get a cool interface screen with custom graphics and buttons to navigate the disk. The video files are just stuck on the disc and you have have to manually open each one with a media player application. Not a huge deal but I was expecting a more professional presentation.To sum things up, if you like Trance or whatever, then by all means buy this single, I'm sure you'll be satisfied like these other reviewers are. I'm basically writing this review to say that, just because everyone is writing glowing reviews of the remixes, that doesn't guarentee *you* will be motivated to do likewise."
