Great to hear all these tracks again now that they've been remastered. The sound is much improved but, I only wish they had included the tracks from their very first single "Mutant Moments E.P.".
I'm not a big fan of remixes of old records.
But, an exception must be made for the 2XS remix of "Tainted Love". Which somehow manages to update but, not spoil the original magic. Whereas Marilyn Manson's take on the song is slow. This (Electronic Drum & Bass-styled) version is faster than the original! I read in a Dave Ball interview that they personally asked them to remix this and loved the results. Always nice to know whether the artist approves i think. Buy without doubt.
