4.0 out of 5 stars well worth checking out 28 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is an interesting CD; disc one (75 minutes) consists of tracks remixed by Four Tet and disc two (52 minutes) consists of Four Tet tracks remixed by other people.

Four Tet make a better job of remixing other people than other people do of them so the longer first disc makes it for me; I don't know what the originals sound like but their version of Bloc Party's So Here We Are is sublime and Pole's Heim and Sia's Breathe Me are excellent.

Not just for completists; this is an original, beautiful atmospheric piece of music.

Fans of Four Tet, aka Kieren Hebdon will love this, as will fans of electronica too. More head music than jump up, he can do no wrong in my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars abstract 17 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've got a couple of Four Tet cd's so I gave this a go but it's only worth having if you want the more abstract, free form end of Four Tet's work. It's hard to listen to it's like ECM jazz and whilst I have nothing against that I prefer the more rythmic stuff. The remixes are ok and the remixed cd has some interesting variations of 'Joy'. Go for 'There Is Love in You' if you haven't got it already.

5.0 out of 5 stars First partial listen 16 Nov 2006
By Edward Henigin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Holy cow this album is shockingly good. If you like Four Tet in general, just buy this.

This has the signature mix of broken up beats and live instrument sounds.

I've only listened to pieces of this. Radiohead Sttrbrain is beautiful because of the contrast of the smooth plaintive singing over the 8x as fast slippery drum mix, stereo phasing and sampling. It's beautiful.

Madvillain, a genius in his own right, is remixed in a way that enhances his style. You end up with a sonic texture where each level is interesting, and somehow each level is harmonious with the other levels, and taken together they are overwhelmingly beautiful.

I'll keep listening, and hopefully it's all this good. But the Madvillain and Radiohead tracks are so awesome I had to post something.

5.0 out of 5 stars best remixes ever compiled by an artist 10 Jan 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Upon first listen I was really impressed by the musical textures alone. Hebdan finds stunningly creative ways to genuinely rework these songs. This compilation tends to sound like an unadulterated, original four tet album and that's a damn good thing. I couldn't get enough of the Lars Horntveth remix which sounds like what avant jazz music might when electronic music producers take over the world. Past that brilliant track, the aphex twin remix comes off almost like an updated Weather Report piece with its fast funk drum-break and its kalimba motif. The Sia remix that it follows has become better than the original in my mind. The Rothko remix alone influenced the way I make music with its interplay of dance rhythms and half-timed, mellow rock jamming. The album concludes with an almost percussionless bloc party remix that ups the emotion just before letting the listener fall gently back down with an intimate Pole remix. The depth of emotion of the final track is amazing considering its minimalist qualities: just a filtered piano melody with intermittent 808-ish drums. The second disk which consists of remixes OF four tet is not so much disappointing as it is novelty, but the "As serious as your life" jay dee remix is hip-hop brilliance. The packaging of this compilation is amusing on its own with its various aesthetic photographs of little crystal animal figures on various mod-looking black and white backdrops. Looks way cooler than it sounds, not to mention sets a great tone for the album. So of course I recommend this album and insist that any Four Tet fan own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars i wrote this in cold blood with a tooth pick 16 Nov 2006
By Stephen Finkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
wierd blends that work. known for his variety in styles of music these remixes prove to work in his favor

my opinion better than dj kicks album not to say it didnt have its moments too but there where some weird tracks on there.

lars hontveth remix feels a lot like amon tobin

bonobo remix was previously released but awesome . the only parts that is the same is the hook

the aphex remix is tight if its aphex then it needs crazy drums so kieren chooses funk something i wouldnt think he would use.

mf doom or madvillian remix is great another wierd blend on :great day: its a old western rock like the ventures or good bad ugly soundtrack then the beat drops and it fits like a puzzle.

great album
4.0 out of 5 stars Duality in a Box 20 May 2010
By S. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had heard the Skttbrain Fourtet remix of the Radiohead song on Pandora and liked it a lot. I tend to like these sorts of ambient sounds, complexity in rhythm, yet somehow familiar type of songs, and for the most part it's nice music to work on my many hours of Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign/CAD/Rhino work. Maybe I'm a bit of a simpleton when it comes to experimental music, but most of disc 2 I found harder to listen to because of its rhythmic irregularity, but it's still definitely worth getting and looking into.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Remix 6 May 2008
By Henry Stonehall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Head and shoulders above the continuing deluge of music created on laptops, Four-Tet began life as an alternative outlet for Kieran Hebden of post-rock trio Fridge. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Hebden is also an adept musician, as a recent appearance with folk singer Vashti Bunyan proved. Rounds, the third Four-Tet album, is a futuristic and emotive mix of oblique hip-hop and gauzy folk.
