pause and rounds are some of my favorite albums as of recently. so maybe i had high hopes for this cd, even if it was pretty much remixes and repeated songs...
cd 1 with the music.. i'd give it a C+. my angel rocks back and forth is a beautiful hypnotic song; cant go wrong with that. the other remixes that follow are not so hot...they are intersting to listen to at first, but carry on too long and get rather annoying after the first two minutes.
cd 2 with the music videos... a B-. the video for my angel rocks back and forth has some strange, intriguing footage, and the way they present it is unusual, but overall it gave me the feeling of an art student trying a little too hard to make a "deep insightful disturbing yet quirky" film, where the computer generated parts and the real video parts didnt quite mesh and felt.. i dont know, a litttle belabored.
the video for she moves me suits the song, but didnt hold my interest very long. very abstract and repetative, but not awful..just not my personal taste.
as serious as your life was HILARIOUS. this dvd was worth it just for this movie! really funny, not at all pretentious, just europeans in traditional costumes dancing to four tet's trippy beats. great stuff.
no more mosqutoes is a little freaky, a little retarted, and..i hate to say it again, but a little pretentious, too.
overall... probably not worth spending 13 dollars on, but worth watching/listening if you can borrow it from someone else.
