Product Description

Amazon.ca

The ambient possibilities that emerge in remixing the work of slow-core rock outfit Low would seem to be endless. Several of the artists on this remix CD take full advantage of this fact, but others do not. Porter Ricks's excellent reworking of "Down" has a film-music feel and creeps along like an expansive noodle by Bowery Electric. DJ Vadim's rendering of "Laugh (Vox-Reverse Tele)" is right-on with its use of bass and vocals mixed with heavy downtempo breaks. It's the best track here. Others, like Neotropic's "Anon (Spore)" and "Anon (Pollen)," flow nicely enough but are filled with some dance gadgetry that has little to do with the feel or flow of the original music. Neotropic are featured on the album three times. Jimmy Somerville, formerly of Bronski Beat and the Communards, makes a wonderful appearance with the bouncy "Words." Also featured are Skull Valley Dub and Tranquility Bass. --Aaron Tassano

4.0 out of 5 stars Half-hearted Low fan chimes in July 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I admit that I'm not that into Low so my words may ring hollow, but i think there are some amazing remixes on this. Anybody who denies the power of the Porter Ricks remix of Down, including Low fans, hasn't really listened to it without an axe to grind. I've played it for so many people, none of whom have even heard of Low, and they are almost always astonished. It's kind of like listening to a primordial ooze of white noise coalesce into a song played by ghosts in love. Low fans and yoga-practitioners with enough patience for this (13 minute long) song will be rewarded. The best songs by far are Down, Words & Over the Ocean. If you have this cd and like those three songs, I recommend The Notwist's "Neon Golden", Console's "Reset the Preset", The Postal Service's "Give Up" & Dntel's "Life is Full of Possibilites". Another good (though uneven) album like this is the Mogwai remix project "Kicking a Dead Pig".

Not bad, but not great. Remix albums continually fall victim to the distruction of brilliant material. As far as 'Owl' is concerned, "Over the Ocean" should have been left alone! Other than that, there are some interesting new visions pressent from the album 'I Could Live In Hope' which I rarely listened to before 'Owl.' Particularly Jimmy Somerville's remix of "Words," which is typical Somerville, but holds a decent contemporary club feel. Aside from the "Over the Ocean" remixes, the album is pretty good for Low listeners to rediscover the hooks and drama that made us like them in the first place. Another remix album along the same lines to check out is Swirlies - Strictly East Coast Sneaky Flute Music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Remixing Low...Why? Feb. 15 2003
By Andy F.
Format:Audio CD
I'm quite confused by this album. Why would anyone WANT to remix Low's beautiful music? Why not leave it be? It's amazing, and remixes couldn't do anything but take away from that. There are a few remixes on here which are ok, like Porter Ricks remix of Down, and even the Party Remix of Over The Ocean isn't bad, as long as you don't think about the original version. Most of the songs on here sound like a bunch a wall of noise, some drum beats and occasionally some piece of a Low song. If your looking for a good remix cd of this genreof music, you won't find it here (and I'd be surprised if you find a decent one at all) and those just interesed in Low being remixed, you will most likely be let down.

1.0 out of 5 stars LOW shown no respect.... Nov. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love live music, but even more so the ethereal haunting edge that only LOW can deliver. I also have been a big fan of the Dance/Electronica scene, and this album seemed to promise as intriguing fusion of both styles . Unfortunatley LOW'S incredible music has been swept aside by nieve immature non musicianship of amazing ineptitude. If this were just a cheap DnB album it would of been cast aside in the bargain bin along with countless other albums of Lift music. This is not LOW, just some a hopeless attempt to steal some light from one of the most incredible bands around. GO buy Trust, Things we lost in the fire or Secret Name .. and really experience LOW.

i'm a long time fan of low and i also love electronic music. sure this cd will come as a shock to harcore low fans but, it's really not that bad. also, alan told me personally at a show in atl. when the cd was released that, "he did not have a problem with the artists" he said nothing about not liking the mixes. sure electronica artists on other labels like morr music, fat cat or even kranky could have done better but, hey! the fact that the project ever happened with such diverse styles is a plus in that idea alone! buy it used, i bet you will like at least 2 songs!
