4.0 out of 5 stars Winter Kills...well actually it doesn't but mp3s still tick me off., 19 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Gaudete - Christmas Card Edition (Audio CD)
Wonderful to have Erasure finally back, they've been lost since Cowboy but Snow Globe is their return.

Glad to have this in this interesting little format - 5/5. The Dave Aude remix is the best remix of Gaudete. As most good remixes it keeps the song intact and present and is just such a great mix - it sounds and unfolds as good remixes did during the remix heydays up to '90 or so...unfortunately for fans of that 'physical' era the mix wasn't released in physical format (-1). I don't buy mp3's - it feels to me like buying a bag of air....I love the very packaging and touchability of how this was released though - it really is well done.

The other mixes are there - the best of them being the Razor 'n Guido mix and it is quite good...the rest is nothing....and then....

it all ends with a remix of Sleep Quietly by Maps (definitely worth purchase price alone!!!). Sleep Quietly from Snowglobe is amazingly good as it is but here there is a low, brooding tension and the instrumental planes that exist between Andy's singing are filled with all kinds of little pitter/patter that seem to reveal themvelves upon each listen. With a half decent sound system it sounds really amazing. This reminds me of my first Erasure purchases during the winter of 85/86 and their b-sides - what wonderful e.p.'s they are but at the time I cherished every note that emanated from my speakers as nightly I went to bed and couldn't fall asleep for worrying of whether Vince Clarke would abandon Andy and the music would end yet again - evidently I felt I had real problems.

I'm taking one off for the missing Aude mix, it still ticks me off, lol. Given the choice between havinge the Aude remix of Gaudete or the Maps mix of Sleep there's not much of a contest. Tonight I'll sleep quietly.
