Format: Audio CD
The whole of this album makes a compelling listen, and all the original Koop songs receive clever and sympathetic reworkings, but for me there are two stand-out tracks. The first is Nicola Conte's New Jazz Version of 'Tonight' - this is one of the most convincing forays into jazz/drum n bass amalgamation I have ever heard. The beats are propulsive but nicely softened to suit the vibe of the song with inspired use of percussion, and everything else sits nicely over it. I particularly like the sax and piano solos that punctuate the tune without ever drifting into the superficial.
Equally effective is Markus Enochson's gentle house reappraisal of the enchanting tune that is 'Summer Sun' - a gem on the original album. The two chords that form the basis of the song are brilliantly underpinned by an acoustic bass-line, but nothing interferes with that sumptuous vocal, which remains forward in the mix. The structure changes toward the end into a cyclic ascending chord sequence that provides the perfect coda to a perfect tune. Sublime...

Very eclectic - calm, soothing, yet modern and different... wonderful to listen to. I often have this on at home - it is perfect background music, and many visitors ask about it. I also play it at school when my Year 5 class arrive in the classroom. If the music isn't playing, they complain!

Well I wondered if it was possible to better one of the albums of the decade, and it seems like it isn't. Having said that, this is still a good buy, just don't listen to it in comparison to the original.
Some of the tracks stand up well on there own and are an interesting take on the originals. The DnB remixes are excellent, a perfect fusion of jazz and breaks. I'd recommend it, but it won't keep the original out of my CD for too long.

Long Awaited, Finally Here 29 Nov 2003
By bordersj2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the remix project to Koop's wildly successful Waltz for Koop CD of 2001-2002. The project is in the mold of the recent Jazzanova or Nicola Conte remix albums where different dj's and artists submit their renditions of the songs from the hosts original release.
The result of this one is pretty good. You have Nicola Conte, Dorfmeister, DJ Partife, Carlito, Markus Enochson among others giving their interpretations of the music in tasteful and unique ways. The renditions that stood out to me were Modal Mile, Baby, and Summer Sun. Actually, the Summer Sun remix is interesting as it's featured on a number of compilations however the full version of the song is provided here, and it has a pretty cool ending that is omitted on the commercial compilations (Brazilectro, etc.) It's my favorite of this album. The Nicola Conte version of Tonight is solid - it is reminiscent of his work with Rosalia De Souza and the sort of jiggity bossa + the style is very similar to DJ Patife's Waltz for Koop remix.
Disappointments? Well, they did include another mix of Summer Sun as remixed by Carlito, but they didn't include the remix of Waltz for Koop as done by Bacon And Quarmby (found on M.O.S. Karma Collection 2003). Although that may be a good thing to some as that one had a sort of "Mary Poppins" feel to it. And let's face it, it's only nine tracks total and there wasn't a mix made for Soul for Sahib - though it was a pretty short track but could've been a springboard to some good cuts. In the end I'd recommend it to fans of the originals but be prepared for a different listening experience that's full of beats & breaks.

Well done 4 Jan 2004
By Nam Pho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A wonderful complimentary remix album for the classic waltz for koop. This remix/alternate outakes is well done with great taste. The remixers choose to keep the original vocals intact which is better than just sampling the vocals. The remix sound is more electronic in arrangement with lace of jazz, but it is still very organic nonetheless. Highly recommened.

Electronica meets Jazz. 22 Jun 2005
By Amazodonte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Electronica meets jazz, what more can I say? If you like Nu-Jazz, if you like chill-out/downtempo, if you like drum n' bass, this CD is for you. As good as the original CD, this remixes version is just a little bit edgier than the former. There's a touch of K&D, Bebel Gilberto, Portsihead, Emiliana Torrini, Miguel Migs, and many more in this masterpiece... I couldn't decide which is best. In fact, I am glad I have them both. They both are excellent in their own way.

Meatier...and beatier 21 Nov 2003
By Mark T - Published on Amazon.com

If you already have Waltz for Koop, then you'll love these remixes. Different enough to justify adding it to your collection. Similar enough to be familiar and comfortable. Heavier beats. Longer tracks. The same great sound.
Koop - Waltz For Koop Alternative Takes. 25 Feb 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
WALTZ FOR KOOP (ALTERNATIVE TAKES) takes Koop's marvelous album and puts it through the remix machine, with good results overall. Nicola Conte's take of "Tonight," for instance, makes it speedier and more in line with Conte's own aesthetic. Refitting the waltz-rhythm lyrics into a strict 4/4 beat is troublesome, however, and the vocals seem a little off-kilter because of it (a problem that also plagues DJ Patlife's drum 'n' bass version of "Waltz for Koop"). Richard Dorfmeister and Madrid de Los Austrias house up "Relaxin' at Club F****n" even further, and Rima send "Bright Nights" into dubbed outer space. The standout on the album, however, is the Markus Enochson mix of "Summer Sun," which retains the bright, warm atmosphere and gives it a house kick drum. Perhaps it's a testament to the strength of the original that it can be so easily converted into a deep house club hit. Conversely, the 2 Banks of 4 mix of "Modal Mile" is somewhat bland, despite the addition of Valerie Etienne's considerable voice. A mixed bag, certainly, with quality taking the lead.
