5.0 out of 5 stars Cry me a club and I'll I love you March 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is really one of the best dance CD-maxi single to have emrged in a while. Included here are two club mixes of Cry Me A River and Like I Love You in addition to the original and instrumental version of Cry. The originals were urban-hip hop and R&B tinged songs that feature Timberlake in a funky mode. But on this single, Dirty Vegas, Junior Vasquez, Basement Jaxx and Ddep Dish - some of dance's best remixes, gave their brilliant interpreatations of the songs.

Up 1st is the Dirty Vegas remix of Cry. After a rather disappointing remix for Madonna's Die Another Day, the threesome spun up some trademark electronic grooves comparable to those on their LP. Junior Vasquez's an old hand at re-creation. Cry becomes a trancey, aimed straight-at-dancefloor anthem.

Basement Jaxx lends their hands to the first single, Like I Loved You and quickly, creates an electronic funk piece. What's best on this disc must be the Zigzag mix of Love by Grammy winner Deep Dish whose remix breathes new life into the original while retaining that distincive Timberlake style with his pitched falsetto intact.

You just have to get this like me wo's nt a big Timberlake fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 for 1 Deal! Feb. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
Justin Timberlake receives the first commercially released single (in the US) of his young solo career, and it smartly includes two hits for the price of one. "Cry Me A River" is remixed by the ultra-hot and ultra-hip Dirty Vegas and by the resurgent Junior Vasquez. On the strength of a recent Grammy win ("Days Go By" for Best Dance Recording), Dirty Vegas seems to be riding the crest of a Tsunami at this point, and thus have the mix of choice for the majority of club DJ's. The Vasquez "Earth Club Mix" doesn't even show up among the mixes listed on Billboard's Dance/Club-play chart, indicating that his remix has not caught on in clubland. Like the average music fan, most DJ's have probably not noticed Junior's recent retreat from his House foundations (perhaps a major indication that House Music truly IS dead in America). As House Music is quite out of style currently, many will not give Junior's mix a chance given his background, and I believe unjustly so. With his remixes on Whitney Houston's Greatest Hits release, Vasquez proved to me that he is multi-dimentional and can indeed crank out quality remixes with the best of them. His remix of "Cry Me A River" is no exception. Every bit as beautiful and perhaps a bit more gothic than Dirty Vegas' take, I think that Junior nailed this one by bringing the moodiness of the song to the forefront. I will not go so far to say that I prefer it, but I would also not say that I prefer Dirty Vegas' mix either. Actually, the best remix on this release is the Deep Dish "Zigzag Remix" of Justin's first solo hit "Like I Love You." Last year's Grammy winners ("Best Remixed Recording" for "Thankyou" by Dido) created another monster here which is quite simply STOMPING! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars - Dance enthusiasts recognized - Feb. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was pleasantly surprised to see the label release a domestic maxi containing some of the dance mixes of "Cry Me A River." The track listing for the release is decidely more focused on the dance treatments as opposed to those god-awful rap collaborations that currently exist of the new single by JT.
The Junior mix is the stand-out mix so far(not available on the import releases.) When Junior is good, he's incredible, but when he's bad, it ain't worth listening to twice. The Earth mix of "Cry me a River" is somewhere in-between for Vasquez. There are a few peaks in the song, but in general doesn't really go anywhere.
I haven't been able to hear the Hamel or Fiasco mixes, but the Dirty Vegas mix seems vocally sluggish and loses the chorus. I have yet to be impressed with a Dirty Vegas treatment (The DV remix of Maddie's "Die Another Day" was less than stellar.)
I'm always excited when a big player in the biz releases singles geared toward the dance audience. Congrats to the label on this release!

Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" is a seething and almost vindictive breakup jam that's been getting some mild controversy over its video which features what may be a lookalike of his ex, Britney Spears. This single has a handful of ready-for-the-club remixes; the best of the bunch is from Dirty Vegas, who give the Timbaland-produced track a neo-disco edge. Another standout is a positively trippy makeover of "Like I Love You" from London's Basement Jaxx. These guys inject an acid-like house groove into this single, originally produced by the Neptunes. At first, I wondered how a song like that could get a house remix, but Basement Jaxx pull it off well. Timberlake is impressively shedding out of his boyband roots by aligning himself with some hip producers and smart DJs. If you like the original version of this single, then you'll be impressed with these remixes.

It a Bona Fide Pop Song with now Club mixes from the new Dirty Vegas and Real Remixer's Veteran Junior's Vasquez, who takes this gem to the underground level that most of DJ's won't risk playing, which is Sad, Having the Package of Looks, Star Power, does not mean a Remix can do him Justice. Plus the two bonus of his first single 'Like I Love You' Basment Jaxx and Deep Dish Giving the CD Disc Jockey a complete collection.
