4.0 out of 5 stars Very good album and slightly remastered, 31 Aug 2010
This review is from: Youthquake (Audio CD)
Finally a CD edition with the remixes that were once available on the Youthquake K7 tape only, the excellent Performance mix of the classic You Spin Me Round (Like a record) and the Extended Mix of Lover Come Back To Me in mayhem mode.

The sound of this C.D. is even a little bit higher than the CD printed in the USA without the bonus extended mixes which is a good thing. But what surprised me the most on this edition was the way some songs begins. Very different than the version I've always heard on vynil, K7 and CD.

You Spin Me Round starts with Pete's voice just saying "Racket Racket" several times which is illogical since this sample is only used on D.J. hit that button and not on this song at all, It's been a long time starts with him saying "You can be the first in line" and Cake And Eat It doesn't start the same way too, it used to start by a fade-in intro and here there's no fade-in, the pan flute starts right away.

Strange. For me, it was a very good surprise but then, I wondered. Were all the records I've bought before truncated or is this release a new thing. I've bought this album countless times since it is so good (lp, K7, u.s. CD) and now this one and this is the only edition where I've found these versions, but I'm glad I did.

The only thing missing on this CD are the lyrics, as always with Dead Or Alive, they usually never print them except on the Japanese editions of their albums but I'm not about to pay twice the price just for the lyrics even though I guess the sound quality may be even better than this one but still.

And especially with this price, this edition worths every penny because this album is also one of Dead or alive's best even though the single versions of In Too Deep and My heart goes bang are better than these album versions, it's true that this album is packed with a lot of hits if you count You Spin Me Round, Lover come back to me with even D.j. hit that button and Big daddy of the rhythm which are so energetic that they could have been singles too. And then you have Cake And Eat It and It's been a long time, to show you a different side of the group : more gentle and sophisticated.

To resume I'd say for all Dead or alive fans or even Dance music 80's fans, this album is a classic and a must-buy : everyone should have it.

Was not "rock it rock it" a part of the remix album rip it up?....does it really belong here or was this a miscalculated mistake
