3.0 out of 5 stars Hybrid make great music - but the remixes fall flat, 17 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Hybrid - Remixed (Audio CD)
I'm a big Hybrid fan, I thought their last album "I Choose Noise" was mostly brilliant, but I was disappointed by this double album.

The strength of Hybrid's sound, for me, is huge soaring dramatic orchestration coupled with incredible beats and bass production. Too many of these remixes bring in a flat progressive house-ish beat and take away all the impact of the originals. The remixes are mostly uninspired and pale in comparison to Hybrid's original tracks, and there are a couple which sound like the remixes haven't even had the original track parts to work with and have had to remix bootleg-style.

The best remixes are the innovative ones- I love the remixes by The Orb and The Cinematic Orchestra, which definitely bring something new to the table. It's good to have the original Hybrid track "Sleepwalking" as well, but overall this album could have been so much better than it is.
