This review is from: Electrospective: The Remix Album (Audio CD)
I can only imagine the look on Phil Oakey's tear-stained made-up face when he realised the horror unleashed on the Human League's 'Sound of the Crowd', or the mascara stained-rivlets inflicted on Jim Kerr's latnen jaw at the abomination imposed on his 'Love Song' by these brutal vandals. Not only have they murdered these songs, they have hung drawn and quartered them.
This remix album is the worst, laziest , most pointless ever. It sounds like it was done on a laptop by a drunken chimp.
Most of the malice is kept for established 80s tracks. These have been pointlessly obliterated and reduced to cranky vocals with squeaking noises over them, or some 'beats' straight out of a cheap phone App.
Then, at the end of disc 2, a sudden change of tac as our 80's artistes are suddenly and inexplicably joined by Goldfrapp, Kelis and (gasp) Tinie Tempah (presumably to get down with the kids).
I imagine that the latter's 'tempah' has been magnified somewhat after this but also that he is consoled by the fact it won't last as long as the fifteen minutes he has- other artists on here will suffer for longer. Tinie by comparison will last as long as the gas from a firefly, and burn just as bright.
Don't waste your money on this old rope.
