4.0 out of 5 stars Hope they've got a decent sound system in that mine...
Being something of a die-hard Moloko fan, I would naturally find it hard not to love this album. Certainly not a patch on earlier albums, but to expect people to have that opinion often comes with the territory of releasing a remix album. All Back To The Mine is a super-long album of track after track of top remixes from some of the world's best DJ's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly mostly very much of it's time.. not at all reflective of the originality that is Moloko
I'm a huge Roisin Murphy & Moloko fan. I've sort of come back to listening to ALL of the Moloko back catalogue (lately) after listening to all of Roisin's solo work and wanting more. I think most of the remixes here suffer from the same problem that they are very much of their time. They very much reflect the flavour of dance music around the time of the turn of last...

All Back To The Mine is a super-long album of track after track of top remixes from some of the world's best DJ's.
Having spent most of my time since buying it yesterday listening mostly to CD1, I can only really comment on that one, but the Bambino Casino Mix of The Time Is Now is superb from CD2.
Herbet's Surround Sound Mix of The Flipside and The Todd Edwards Pleasure For Life UK Vocal Mix of Pure Pleasure Seeker outshine the other tracks on CD1, with the latter being my favourite cut from the album. Also catching my ear was the splendidly quirky Club 7 1930's Mix, which aswell as being ridiculously catchy in a warped little way, is pretty funny.
Absolutely not a disappointment, and a more than adequate stop gap until Mark & Róisin bring out the new one they're apparently working on - definitely 4/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moloko, 17 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: All Back To The Mine (Audio CD)
This is by far one of my favourite albums. It is an album you can easily put on in the background of a cosy dinner, and also turn up the volume for the party afterwards. Excellent. If you are even a slight Moloko fan you should buy this album.

I'm a huge Roisin Murphy & Moloko fan. I've sort of come back to listening to ALL of the Moloko back catalogue (lately) after listening to all of Roisin's solo work and wanting more. I think most of the remixes here suffer from the same problem that they are very much of their time. They very much reflect the flavour of dance music around the time of the turn of last century (trance) and don't really date well. It's a shame as the Moloko back catalog is still so rich in original experimental sounds. Sadly I don't think this comes through at all in most of the remixes. There are a handful of gems including perhaps predictably Sing It Back(Mousse T's Feel Love Mix] which is a masterclass in remixing. Having said all of the above this is still a must for Moloko fans.

I know from the description of this that all the tracks were remixes. I don't really like any of them.
