I.E [ 12 Version,Extended mix,Extended remix ] instead of a "total wipe out" everytime.....
Most "DJ'S" or "Remixers" today,think they are "GOD" and remix the way they do for "full credit" and "more money" and not always for the best interest of the song,remember making "noise" is not talent,babies can do that.....
some djs or remixers are hopless and make songs very boring or simplistic and lack creativity
My biggest gripe with the CD is the obnoxious drivel that fills the voids between great songs. The remixed "Swallowed" and both versions of "Everything Zen" are truly awful. They are redundant and have no interesting sounds, interludes or changes. It seems like no effort was made to mix them as cleverly as the four mentioned above. Another track in the middle of the CD, nameless to me, has someone yelling something like "Pop!" every eight beats and it's just annoying. Whenever I listen to this CD, I always make sure I'm within reach of the "skip track" button on my stereo -- some of the songs are that bad.
The album is definitely worth a listen for the good tracks, though I would recommend buying it used -- I think it's hard to justify paying $... when there are also unlistenable, terrible tracks on it as well.
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.
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.

Bush has released a remix album which includes the commercial single, Mouth and this song is much better than the original version found on Razorblade Suitcase. Read morePublished on March 23 2007 by Jason Hutton
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 morePublished on July 6 2004 by vampyresweet
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 morePublished on Feb. 15 2004 by E. Waynert
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. Read morePublished on Jan. 26 2004 by DarkSledge
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. Read morePublished on Oct. 10 2003
An album like this usually comes when the band is all out of ideas, or has hit a creative slump. Linkin Park a few years back had this same exact idea with... Read morePublished on Sept. 24 2003 by Mark T. Brody
If you're familiar with and a fan of Bush albums you're likely to enjoy several of the mixes. A few rival the originals, they're refreshing, they make a great burn mix with the... Read morePublished on July 23 2003
I love Bush. I have since the beginning. This cd just happened to be an artistic revelation on their part. They grew and found new ways to express themselves musically. Read morePublished on May 3 2003
