4.0 out of 5 stars Bootleg-tastic! 12 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is superb! To be honest, I don't buy many CDs these days as there's very few that justify their price but after I heard this in my mate's car I thought I'd make an exception. It hasn't been out of my car stereo since I bought it!

Track 11 (Proper Education with Eric Prydz vs Floyd) is the one most people will have heard on the radio, but most of the tracks are even better than that with some great collaborations....highlight for me was David Bowie vs Liberty X: pure genius!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mashed to Perfection! 24 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've loved mash-ups for ages. The only problem is that until this album there has never been an easy way of getting my hands on a collection of mash-ups all in one go. Yes, there have been various attempts at mash-up albums before, but nothing like this; they've mostly been nothing more than a repackaged mix album of dance tracks no-one's ever heard of.

How refreshing then that every track that has been mashed on "Mashed" is a famous track in its own right. Not only that, but - unlike the annoying mix albums - the mashers behind this album have created individual mashed-up tracks. I'm amazed at how BIG some of the artists and tracks are on this album (Madonna, The Doors, Franz Ferdinand, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Peggy Lee, Pink Floyd...)

Making mash-ups is an absolute art-form; it's about knowing which tracks work well together and sometimes the most unlikely collaborations bring out the most exciting results - this is definitely the case with these mash-ups. They have been done so cleverly and work so well together that they almost make you forget how the tracks sounded before they were mashed together! Hearing is believing.

An excellent buy well worth waiting for! Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A landmark release 12 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is special.

I've been waiting for an official compilation of this type for many a moon.

Too many predictable 'mix albums' of bootlegs or 'mash-ups' (as seems to be the vogue terminology) have surfaced over the past couple of years, with a heavy leaning towards a club-style and using (c)rap tracks etc.

'Mashed' presents tunes that you will be familair with, twisted with intelligence and humour. It's very addictive.

The first time I heard Peggy Lee's 'Fever' vocal kick in over Iggy Pop's 'Passenger', I simply had to cue back the track immediately to take it in again. Incredible how the 2 songs work together!

'Franz Buffalo' has a similar effect, like a new skin on tired bones if you like and that goes for many of the tracks compiled here.

Hats off to Go Home Productions and Loo & Placido for the way in which they've combined and breathed new life into these songs, it's quite simply essential, repeated listening.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
hard to choose between the bowie v liberty x, or no doubt v shapeshifters as my favourite, the doors v blondie also brilliant, then kylie v new order. Can you believe Duran duran v Kelis could be genius - yeah I know, how can that be possible, but it just well, works, brilliantly.

Its all a bit mind boggling just how groovy these mashed tracks are, I play it loud in the kitchen when i am cooking and it is hard not to jump around, so , well, I jump around, it is just too feel good this album, i really really love it and cannot recommend it highly enough.

go buy.
