5.0 out of 5 stars Roam mixes Sept. 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
I was working for a radio station during 90' which had this as a maxi-single and I wanted the instrumental to "Roam" very badly for my personal collection. This was not the first time I've heard of the group as years ago I had bought them on vinyl and found them as hip. When the station cleaned house of inventory as a result of a format change, I did not get the CD! Nothing can replace the real thing, no karaoke release of the tune can do justice in my book. That's how strong an impression certain instrumentals have made with me.
Time went by, but I never forgot the instrumental and hearing the regular radio release every time reminds me of it. I'm happy that this song was put into several mixes because to me it's an action song with enough strength to be marketed in this manner, and for 90' it was not alone (Electronic's "Getting away with it" is an example from that year that I got.) If the parties who allowed this song to be released as a single with various mixes should ever read this, please accept my sincerest thanks for your vision over a decade ago! Roam is a feel-good tune that was very cutting-edge for it's day, and even now, it hasn't "burned" much with me. It's usage on certain commercials this year hasn't surprised me, and I consider it a classic. Crank it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bustin' boundaries April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the CD single version of The B-52's hit "Roam". There are 5 remixes of the song, plus the b-side "Bushfire". "Roam" is a great song, but the problem here is that the remixes don't sound all that different from each other. It would have been more interesting if they some more radical remixing. Here is the track listing:
1. Roam (7" Remix)
2. Roam (Radio Mix)
3. Roam (12" Remix)
4. Bushfire (LP Version)
5. Roam (Extended Remix)
6. Roam (Instrumental)

3.0 out of 5 stars I Like This Song But... June 21 2000
Format:Audio CD
Five different mixes of the same song is a bit much, if you ask me. The second track, entitled Bushfire, is pretty good however. But in my opinion, they should have just put out one version of the song.

5.0 out of 5 stars ROAM Across the Universe: Variety is the spice of this CD Single July 21 2013
By Stephanie Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of CD Singles since the 1980s. I love how they usually offer otherwise unavailable variations of the songs. The alternate versions let me see where the things might have gone; the alternate thinking of the band and the producer in the mix. Very often I like these variations more than the album version.

I'm also a long-time fan of the B52's. Roam was one of their signature hits along with Love Shack/Channel Z.

I like the 7" remix the best on this CD Single but like the other variations to. When I'm listening on my MP3 player in random mode it's nice to get a version of a song that is different from the expected album version sometimes.

The "b-side" song on this CD is Bushfire which is good but not a favorite of mine.

CD Single's are often about alternate views. Like a movie blu-ray that offers alternate endings or alternate cuts. Different views of the same work. It expands one's perception of what the artists are capable of and where their minds went before being pulled back by the producers.

ROAM is a long time favorite for me. I hope this is helpful.
