4.0 out of 5 stars Sound follow up 3 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This follow up is of similar quality to Vol 1. Music that sounds like it cost a million pounds to make. Monumental, experimental,conceptual and hi gloss pop could describe many of ZTT's greatest hits.

And so Frankie, Art of Noise and Propaganda return. Intriguigingly 2 previously unreleased mixes of AON by 808 State effectively demonstrate a a continuity of textural and sonic sounds of ZTT from the 80s into the 90s. Relative obscurites Anne Pigalle and Instinct make welcome reappearances- acts that would've been hits in a righteous/alternative universe. Vol. 2 has it's fair share of rarites just as Vol 1. This is an excellent compilation yet perhaps not boding well for a further volume if the familiarity of some of the material is anything to go by.

The gargantuan 15 minute Two Tribes (Keep The Peace) mix is excellent but feels like the final word on all its remixes . A holy grail incorporating previous remixes into one elongated track. Likewise does any need a "special instrumental" remix of Dr Mabuse? Is there anymore more Dr Mabuse mixes in the vaults. It's the masterpiece sounding exactly as described but a slightly superfluous addition to the ZTT Catalogue.

There's rare remixes involving ZTT associates involvement of artists not on the label.On paper OMD and Paul McCartney seem incongruous in these surroundings yet fit pretty well into the bigger picture.-strange but enticing remodellings of pretty conventional songs that wouldn't fit in on a vast number of boring, predictable 80s compilations. The inclusion of Scritti Politti Absolute (Version) is itself a moot point. A devastating HI NRG influenced white funk classic, sure, but has previously appeared on numerous compilations.

Despite some slight reservations -this is up there with the first volume. More than deserving of being revived/restored to CD quality. Sumptuous/pretentious quality pop rarely equalled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Frankie two tribes mix 28 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This ztt collection is well worth buying, if only for the Frankie goes to Hollywood cassette mix of Two Tribes.This was released along side all the 12" remixes back in 1984 as a " cassingle". The mix is called "keep the peace".It starts with the live version from the original 12 " and then mixes seamlessly into the "carnage" 12" which in turn mixes into the "Annhillation" mix!! 15 minutes of Frankie magic,essential for any fan!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ART OF ZANG TUUM TUMB 21 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
The front page of the New Musical Express dated 13th October 1984 read "ZTT-Warriors Of Pop Or Theatre Of Hype?" The answer to both of those questions in 2012 is a simple yes. The hype was justified as once you listen the latest in "The Art Of The 12"" series it all becomes very clear why. As you may know "The Art Of The 12", Volume Two" is number SALVOMDCD27 in Salvo's catalogue and number 21 in ZTT's Element Series. What you may not know is that it's also number 19 in the Pre-order charts (at the time of writing) proving that since the label's heyday in the early to mid 80s that there is still a huge interest in the ZTT catalogue and this latest entry does not disappoint.

Like all of the previous Element Series releases this addition contains the familiar and the previously unreleased. Unlike those others elements, it is not just the ZTT vaults that have been raided. Godley & Creme appear with Scritti Politti, remixed by JJ Jeczalik and Gary Langan respectively along side a unique remix of Paul McCartney's "Spies Like Us" by their group Art of Noise that only appears on this compilation. In turn, two previously rumoured to exist remixes of Art of Noise's "Moments In Love" by 808 States's Graham Massey finally see the light of day after spending two decades locked away in the archives. Frankie Goes To Hollywood continue to surprise with two recently discovered remixes of "Relax" and "War". We are given the chance to hear how they would have sounded in an alternative reality, but then, they always were `the alternative', with the hype that took them to the top of the singles charts three times in 1984 and these mixes to not detract from that fact.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm 2 Oct 2012
By Gholby
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To be Honest i'm sure if ZTT were honest they had enough for one decent double album.
What we got was a good part one and this a very patchy effort.Its worth a fiver.

Been years since I saw that ZTT on 12" discs and my only way to enjoy the left field music was constant Propaganda.
Glad I invested in this pick n mix of memories... Hope you do too.
