5.0 out of 5 stars If you missed it in the 1980s, don't miss it now Oct. 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I became a Yoko fan in my early teens in the late 1970s. In 1981 when "Walking on Thin Ice" came out on 45, I bought it and I thought it was brilliant. I still do. You would think more John Lennon fans would have wanted to hear the record that he and Yoko were working on the night he was killed, but no, "Walking on Thin Ice" was never listened to or appreciated like it should have been. This was the era of the early New Order, Depeche Mode, OMD, and Pet Shop Boys records. You would think "Walking on Thin Ice" would have fit right in. Was it not marketed properly? Maybe. But I remember calling a radio station to request it in the 1980s, during the naivete of my high school years, and being told "This radio station plays no Yoko Ono whatsoever." Now "Walking on Thin Ice" has been remixed and reissued, bright shiny and new, for the millennial dance floor. All the remixes bring creative inspiration to the song while remaining true to Yoko Ono's classic release. It's as haunting and enchanting as ever. And am I the only person in the world who's ever counted how many times Yoko sings "Ice!" on the original 45? "Ice! Ice! Ice! Ice!" 128 times. That's the date John Lennon died, 12-8 of 1980.

I still have my "Walking On Thin Ice" 45 that I would play when I dj'd a disco party back in 1981. The original is one of the best songs of the 80's. The beginning guitar intro sucks you in like a funnel. Playing it in my car is like gliding above the clouds.
Anyhow, this ten version cd is overkill of the best kind. The variations have a similar dance theme but blend into interesting and diverse variations. I'll highlight my favorite tracks.
The first track, by the Pet Shop Boys, starts out very Giorgio Moroder of Donna Summers fame. The Pet Shop Boys use the same intoxicants to stimulate and surge every fibre of one's "I can't stop shaking my entire" being. The second track, by Danny Tenaglia, is a fast paced s l o w dance. It's the kind of beat one wants when dancing close to someone you really want to be intimate with. Track five, more Pet Shop Boys madness. Kind of music that would be great for a 360 degree surround film of one flying over clouds and mountains, etc. Lastly, track ten by Peter Rauhofer, this is the most innovative and brilliant reinterpretation of Yoko's "Walking On Thin Ice". When I listen to this one I can feel the chill of the ice hanging from the ceiling as I see my breath smoking and swirling through the frigid air (and I live in Florida). While all the versions offer something unique and of value, four of them are outstanding. Track ten is absolutely brilliant.
If Yoko is doing a dance cd as I've heard, I hope " Hell In Paradise" and "Cape Clear" are being considered as extended plays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go Yoko and go Johnny go! May 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
Has any artist since Dreyer ever been so fantastic at 70? And Dreyer would never dance. What a glorious vindication for Yoko that the children and grandchildren of all the people who attacked her are now waving their hands in the air at her new dance tracks. And these Walking in Thin Ice mixes are the best yet in her current dance-floor phase. The Pet Shop Boys have never sounded better than when giving Yoko a powerful backdrop. Indeed, these tracks really energize both Yoko and the electronica scene. Without such an individualistic vocalist as Yoko, electronica can easily sound like pleasant, anonymous aural wallpaper, and Yoko has sometimes had to deal with musicians who were clueless about her. Here the two elements bring out the best in each other. You can never hear Yoko's "Ice! Ice! Ice!" cries from the original 1980/1981 classic too many times. That said, these remixes do greatly tone down Yoko's vocals. The piercing war whoops of the original have been considerably sanded down, so for a wilder experience, check out the original version, available as a bonus track on Season of Glass and Double Fantasy and on her best-of, also called Walking on Thin Ice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Number one dance track. May 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the fourth single in the last year and a half that was released by Yoko Ono that has hit the dance chart -following "Open Your Box","Kiss Kiss Kiss" and "Yang Yang" . This single marks probably the first time Ms. Ono has been number one by herself and this is the remixes for her 1981 classic "Walking On Thin Ice" that in its original form was like a Chic funk dance record. These mixes are from the Pet Shop Boys whose radio(4:04),Electro mix(6:34) and the house/nrg Extended Dance mix(7:56). These mixes are the best because they don't overpower the song or vocals. The next best mix is the Felix da Housecat Tribute mix(5:26) and is so close to the original that it's scary. Excellent. The Peter rauhofer Electro mix(6:06) and Chill Mix(4:55) are very well done. The best house mix though is the FKEK mix(9:52) that features more of the vocal theatrics of Yoko. Excellent mix. The Danny Tenaglia Walked Across the lake Mix(12:38) is good but a little drawn out. The worst mix is the Rui da Silva Kismet mix(10:39) - just boring. Plus you get the wonderful Orange Factory Radio mix(3:52). Excellent cd single that gives the Legend her due .

5.0 out of 5 stars YOKO RULES THE WORLD! June 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anything by the ever popular Yoko Ono automatically get my vote, but this cd will rock anybody not just Ono freaks. Dance the night away to the squeeks and screams of the worlds most unrecognized diva. Practically all the mixes are great obviosly the mixers have taste and a true love for Yokey Okey. Especially the Pet Shop Boys who have designed some of thier best copositions as of late and are rubbing thier gold dust all over the Thin Ice. By buying this single you are purchasing a ticket into the "know". You'll be so ahead of the curve and so on top, but not in a fake "I read this was cool" way. Yoko's influence has yet to be fully understood and is slowley being relized. Won't you be the envy of all your freinds when you pull out your "Walking On Thin Ice" single and you've known all along?!
