Format: Audio CD
Unlike most Cure fans, I heard these extended versions before the originals. The Cure's music has here been adapted for the dancefloor without sacrificing its rock appeal in the process. The music is spacious, atmospheric and emotionally compelling, far more than just a dance rhythm added to the mix. In fact, when I compare these magnificent versions of Pictures Of You, Inbetween Days and Close To Me to the originals, they sound almost flat and one-dimensional. I am sure most Cure fans would disagree, but for me these extended mixes have an added charm and flow. The dance rhythms provide a hypnotic twist and do not in any way detract from the profundity of The Cure's music. Mixed Up is definitely my favourite Cure album.

5 of the songs (which is almost HALF of the album kids!) have the subtitle of "Extended Mix" in brackets next to the songs title: Lullaby, Fascination Street, Lovesong, Pictures Of You (which fair enough is a dub version) and Hot Hot Hot. All of these, excepting Pictures Of You, do exactly what it says on the tin - they are just extended versions of the songs.
This sort of works with Lullaby (or you could always listen to the original and press the repeat button...), doesn't work at all for Lovesong (it's too "straight" a song to warrant long instrumental passages and simply has no excitement in this format), and Hot Hot Hot is also a bit lifeless unless you really do want to hear individual guitar lines playing for a minute at a time.
Pictures Of You is an interesting one as it's a full on Jamaican-dub version, while maintaining the guitars of the original. It's interesting because it's different, but ultimately a bit daft if you think about it for too long !!
Fascination Street is the one extended version that really works well. This is a testament really to how good the original version is. The original is so good that's it's always a shame when it ends, so what better a thing to do than have a really long version of it ! The majority of Cure fans (myself included) look on this extended mix to be superior and now consider it to be the definitive version, much the same as how many Star Wars fans think the Special Editions are better than the originals (I don't !).
OK then, now for the REAL remixes:
Close To Me was once a fast paced almost dance track, now it's a lazy, spaced out under a tree, mellow groove. This comes courtesy of Happy Monday's producer Paul Oakenfold and retains the feel of said band, very much in the style of Step On.

I'm a fairly noncommittal fan of The Cure in the sense that I don't own every album, and their output has been patchy post 1992's Wish. However I can strongly recommend this prima facie "for the fans only" release. To cut to the chase, it has my favourite version of any track released ever, by anyone - the fantastic, and largely unknown Tree Mix of A Forest, a great single in it's own right, but here exalted to mythical status in my opinion. But, starting from the top, we begin with Lullaby, a perfectly acceptable slow-burn opener which does eventually grow and develop into a thing of beauty. Lovely melodic lines throughout and juducious production. Still, Smith's barely audible vocal seems to add little to what is effectively a gentle instrumental. By the way, it's not a dance mix, indeed most of these mixes aren't. Close To Me follows an auspicious start but I find little of interest in this track. The unavoidable and hypnotic bounce in the single version is absent on this mix. It's solid enough but it just doesn't work for me. Track three really ups the ante though and sets a new highwater mark. Fascination Street is dark, brooding, unsettling, and features some terrific audio design - an incredible undercurrent of bass, cascading guitar lines and a ostensibly simple but brilliant build-up that "splinters" out and creates a really filmic feel to the proceedings. Robert Smith sounds in fine form here and suitably echoey too. Track four, A Walk is another good track, arguably an improvement over the original but I feel it could have been brilliant in better hands. A nice electro feel and up-tempo but it doesn't cut it straight after Fascination Street. Lovesong is an oddity here; it sounds nothing like a remix, but because the song itself is one of their best, it doesn't really matter too much.Read more ›

I love this remix album. I had it on tape back in 1990/91 and pretty much wore it out. I bought it at the time for the Paul Oakenfold mix of Close To Me and because I liked the tracks "Lullaby" and "Lovesong". I've grown to love the other mixes too - particularly "The Walk". Sadly though, "Why Can't I Be You" is missing from the CD version. A crying shame.
