5.0 out of 5 stars different, but in a good way Jan. 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
To begin, why are people dogging this cd because it is electronic? I don't think people understand the idea of a remix album and how a remix album should be pulled off. I hear complaints that some remixes stray too far from the original. Why would we want to hear the same song with a dance beat? These artists that did the remixes did an amazing job at making the songs their own. Granted it's not the grungy 90s rock that we are used to but as far as electronic music goes, this is pretty darn grungy and dark. The whole cd has a darker vibe to it than most of their stuff, which is pretty dark to begin with. I think this takes the industrial idea they were playing with on Razorblade Suitcase and makes it the center of their music this time. I am a huge fan of all types of rock and roll and a somewhat fan of the electronic music, but the electronic music I like is dark like this album. Hats off to Bush for giving us something different in a world of the same crap. If you enjoy this remix album, check out any of the Nine Inch Nails remix albums. Both Bush and Trent Reznor understand the concept behind a remix album. Hats off to Bush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bush's Third Release: Electronica Remixes Oct. 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I think I'm probably in the minority of Bush fans that actually liked this remix album; but then, I like both alternative/grunge rock and electronica. Most of the songs on "Deconstructed" are taken from their sophomore CD, "Razorblade Suitcase," except tracks #1, 9, 10 (all from "Sixteen Stone"), and #11 (which can be heard elsewhere on "The Crow: City of Angels" soundtrack). The remixes are all energetic, save for the moody last track, "In A Lonely Place (Tricky Mix)," which is a nice wrap-up song.
Some of the remixes don't include all the lyrics, just samples, as heard in #10: "Everything Zen (Derek DeLarge Mix)." There's a second shorter version of this song on track #1 (The Lhasa Fever Mix), which I prefer over #10.
The songs I particularly enjoyed were the creepy drum and bass remix of #3: "Swallowed (Goldie/Toasted Both Sides Please Mix)," #8: "Insect Kin (Jack Dangers/Drum and Bees Mix)"--which is almost unrecognizable from the original--plus #2: "Mouth (The Stingray Mix)," which is the best remix on here, hands down, and can also be heard on the "An American Werewolf in Paris" soundtrack.
I liked the majority of songs on here, but if I had to choose, my least favorite would probably have to be #9: "Comedown (Lunatic Calm Mix)." The original version is my all-time favorite Bush song, and this remix doesn't really do it justice, in my opinion.
While I loved "Deconstructed" (it's one of my faves by Bush), the more diehard alt. rock/Bush fan may want to borrow this CD first before purchasing it. It's not for everybody.

1.0 out of 5 stars One star? Why so generous? June 27 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Considering I play frisbee with this CD now, this is without a doubt one of the worst albums ever put together. I play two chords on a six-string, can I be in a band, too? Gavin and all those guys can go to hell for all I care. (I don't know the other guy's names because Gavin gets so much attention. Hell, when "Glycerine" came out, I thought Bush was a solo artist because Gavin was the only damn person in the video.) If I could, Deconstructed would get a big fat 0 from me.
I could not have been more happy when I listened to this CD. See, I never really liked Bush to begin with, but when millions of teenage girls swarmed radio stations with requests for Bush, and you could not walk into a grocery store without seeing some teen magazine with Gavin's mug on it, I began to hate the band immensely. I have problems with people who overrate bands for whatever reason. So, with all the girls screaming that "Gavin is God" and the critics being too chicken to tell this band off, you would think that Bush actually had talent. Which they don't. Gavin has ABSOLUTELY no range as a vocalist. Nor does he have any talent as a songwriter (except he doesn't write the songs here). And I'm not even sure he actually plays his guitar. None of the other members put in any inspiring performances on their instruments. The mere fact that this band is so popular makes me want to move to another planet. And everyone thought they were rebels for listening to this stuff! Unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars some helpful hints for this recording Jan. 19 2002
Format:Audio CD
here are some things to know:
if you like bush only moderately, don't buy this CD.
if you are a traditionalist and are expecting this to be like sixteen stone, don't buy this CD.
if you don't have a cultivated appreciation for electronic music and the essence of taking a work and creating your own expression out of the parts of it, don't buy this CD.
if you're open minded enough though, this is an excellent addition to your music collection. especially good is the Philip Steir mix of "Synapse" by taking the basic guitar line and making it the electronic basis, while mixing up the rhythm structure, he has taken something that is unmistakably bush and made into something totally other and yet wonderful. the much-touted "stingray" mix of "Mouth" is actually Bush's own work, under a pseudonym, which explains why many people feel it is the one song that stays most true to bush's style.
if you find this album intruiging, i suggest you listen to other mixes of bush songs, such as the remix of "letting the cables sleep" by the illuminati.

I think the remix shouldn't have been done, because Bush does not have the type music to be written in a remix form. Read more

Get this cd for one song: Mouth. The other songs are bogus. The song Mouth rocks though! Besides you cannot find it on any other Bush album. Read more
