4.0 out of 5 stars Great remixes, 16 April 2007
Most of the remixes on here are very good- but I have one complaint- It's Yourself is incomplete, regardless of what anyone else has said. However, all previous versions were also incomplete, but in different ways.

The original 7" single had two verses, and a full instrumental that had no fade-out. The Archive II version had two verses and a faded out instrumental. This new version, unlike any other, has three verses and a faded out instrumental. So while we miss the grand ending of this song, we do gain a new verse in the beginning. But the original ending, in my opinion, is worth looking for.

Anyway, I've only listened to ...And Then There Were Three... and It's Yourself so far, and I can say that they both sound magnificent. There are some differences on the ...And Then There Were Three... album, though, but most do not take away from the music, but instead add to it. For example, Snowbound is charged with life in a way that it never was before, as the chorus seems to rise above the verses. 'Down & Out's mix is almost identical, but there seems to be a layer of dust and bad EQ that has just been lifted away from the song. While some may find the mix too different from the original, I feel the same in some cases. However, I'm keeping the 1994 versions which are true to the original mixes, and I'm using these to compliment the originals and to shed new light on the original songs, because when it comes down to it, most of these songs are truly works of art, and any new perspective on a timeless piece is welcome.

Daniel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything Is Wrong, 19 Jun 2003
Everything Is Wrong, released 1995, is a wonderful album that was a revolution in Moby's music. He mixed gospel into "Hymn", he blew the dance floor with hits like "Feeling So Real", "Everytime You Touch Me", and "Bring Back My Happiness".
He went back into his punk rock roots with "All That I Need Is To Be Loved" and "What Love". "Anthem" sends a chill down your spine like no other. He ended off the album with the trance and ambient songs "First Cool Hive", "Into The Blue", "Everything Is Wrong", "God Moving Over The Face of the Waters", and "When It's Cold, I'd Like To Die". This edition contains an extra CD, "Underwater", which is an ambient piece with 5 parts, that ends this beautiful CD.
