Mortiis - What are you doing?,
This review is from: The Smell of Rain (Bonus Edition) (Audio CD)
Being a huge fan of the Mortiis Era II CD The Smell of Rain I did not really know what to expect from this remastered edition not to forget the remixes. But due to my curiosity I bought this "Highly limited edition." There are some minor noticeable things regarding the remastering of the original album but to be perfectly honest it is not worth mentioning. Concerning the remixes I must confess that I was very disappointed indeed. They lack just about everything and I am quite surprised that Mortiis would put his name to such idiosyncratic c**p. The only remix worth commentating is the Lustmord remix of Monolith - Monolithic dub. But still this semi-trip hop remix does not quite make it to the finish line. It reminds me of The Mad Professor's remix of the Massive Attack Protection album. Interesting but annoying and shallow. Still I give the album 4 stars but that is just because I still find the original yet on this editon remastered tracks fantastic.
