Top Customer Reviews

Following his extraordinary work on "So Hard", the Boys gave "Where the streets have no name..." to David Morales for remixing, together with its B-side "How can you expect to be taken seriously".
This is amazing work done by Morales here since, as obvious by the remix of "Streets" demonstrates, he probably hated the song in the first place. "Streets" remains to this day the most cynical and desperate attempt of PSBs to deliver a hit and the end result is appalling more than anything else.
Morales decides to ignore the song altogether for his remix (bar a couple of chords), and he delivers instead a very good 6'25 instrumental complete with percussion, guitar, Hammond organ and even a small tribute to KLF's version of "So Hard". Does it have anything to do with "Where the streets have no name" (bar a brief Neil Tennant vocal at 4'25)? NO. But as an original tune, it is fantastic.
As for the two remixes of "How can you expect to be taken seriously", they are PRICELESS. Here, it is clear that David Morales loves the song and he delivers complex, re-orchestrated versions that are different yet very respectful of the original.
This is a GREAT CD of remixes, smart and innovative.
To be fair, Morales took care of the traditional 12" of "Where the streets..." that was available on the CD released in the US. For the ones liking the song, it is a great extension of the song - very well done.
