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.
