5.0 out of 5 stars Remixes that Work, 13 July 2002
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Orginal Sound Of Sheffield: '83 / '87;Best Of The Virgin/EMI Years (Audio CD)
Cabaret Voltaire belong on vinyl. It seems an odd thing to say about an electronic band but vinyl was the medium of the 80s and it's still the dance DJ's choice.
Why so? The 12 inch remix. For most bands, the extended tracks just stretched what little content there was and filled in the gaps with a 'Stars on 45' back beat that made dancefloor fades between tracks a doddle.
Not in this case. This CD really works. There was always so much going on in CVs tracks that one version could never be enough. Of course, they filled dancefloors, but they also had content. They revealed more and more with each hearing.
It doeesn't replace the originals, but it adds plenty. Whether it's your first taste or it's completing the collection, this CD is an essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Once 'I' was a lonely playboy", 19 Sep 2002
This review is from: The Orginal Sound Of Sheffield: '83 / '87;Best Of The Virgin/EMI Years (Audio CD)
At last, Sensoria on CD....and it's the 12" version. Before 1988, when House music dominated the club scene, The Hacienda club in Manchester used to play an eclectic mix of music on Saturday nights. Sensoria was one of those tunes.
I've had most of their vinyl for years, but at last I now have the convenience of some of their best on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb synopsis of commercial period of Cabaret Voltaire, 19 Jan 2002

This review is from: The Orginal Sound Of Sheffield: '83 / '87;Best Of The Virgin/EMI Years (Audio CD)
Basically a 'Best Of' compilation featuring the full 12" mixes of well known tracks from the group.
Standout tracks include the driving rhythmic mix of 'Just Fascination', a good mix of 'Don't Argue' and 'Here To Go' and the excellent 'I Want You' which many believe is their best song. Also notable for the inclusion of Dream Ticket' previously only available on a vinyl release, which is deleted.
Some tracks don't work however. The 12" mix of 'Sensoria', in my view, does not live up to the original. Maybe this is because it's interspersed with 'Do Right' instead of being a mix in its own right. The mix of 'James Brown' does sound a little dated, but then again it was recorded over 18 years ago!
Overall, a superb introduction to the influential music of this Sheffield based group. A group which is held in high regard by acts like New Order, Kraftwerk and artists like Meat Beat Manifesto and Derrick May.

This review is from: The Orginal Sound Of Sheffield: '83 / '87;Best Of The Virgin/EMI Years (Audio CD)
This is the best cd, for driving in traffic. Here in Philadelphia PA, I am in my car for about 3 hours a day. This cd from beginning to end is fantastic, You just escape into the wonderful world of Cabaret Voltaire. I have been a fan for the past 20 some odd years, to this day, they rank as one of my (2)favorite bands.
