Product description

Product Description

Remix album by Australian dance duo PNAU, featuring the songs of Elton John. Each of the eight tracks on the album includes micro samples of various songs by the legendary artist, with an electronic twist. Some of the tracks given this dance makeover are 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road', 'Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word', 'Benny and the Jets', 'Are You Ready for Love', and many more.

BBC Review

When one of the world’s most successful solo artists decided that he wanted to team up with hip electro younglings on an album, few predicted that those lucky two would be Aussie duo Pnau. It’s a leftfield choice for a legend that could have had his pick of rent-a-Guettas, or chosen to work with Pnau frontman Nick Littlemore’s infinitely more recognisable band, Empire of the Sun.

Still, the story goes that John heard Pnau’s Ed Banger-aping electro assault, Wild Strawberries, while stuck in Sydney traffic in 2007. He thought it was the best thing he’d heard in 10 years, and swiftly signed them to his management company where stardom awaited.

Except that it didn’t. Pnau released their fourth album, Soft Universe, earlier this year to the sound of crushing indifference. But such a superfan is Elton that they’ve been given free rein to shape his expansive back catalogue between 1970 and 1976 into shiny new models.

The results are dazzling. New remixes of golden oldies rarely succeed in balancing the classic’s magic with modern context, but Pnau have produced eight surprisingly original and sublimely brilliant pop nuggets with a Balearic and cosmic disco sheen. They’ve steered away from his biggest hits and instead use up to nine Elton micro-samples in one song, blurring them almost out of recognition.

The title track is already a club hit; a simple and uplifting reimagination of Elton’s Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters which recalls Modjo’s millennium smash, Lady. Black Icy Stare, meanwhile, plays with the funky brass of John’s Caribou album and could be a remix by Scandinavian re-edit prince Todd Terje.

Experimental still, Foreign Fields and Telegraph to the Afterlife stray into psychedelic slow-motion house territory. Only the cinematic Karmatron is out of place, with its Mark Ronson-does-a-Bond-theme shtick.

It’s surely a vanity project for John, an opportunity to flirt with the sound of Ibiza’s youth-soaked terraces before he gears up to release his next solo album. But when daring collaborations are as fruitful as this, we wonder just what eargasms could happen should the likes of Stevie Wonder, David Bowie and – whisper it – Prince take a chance on an electro underdog, too.

This album is uniformly charming - warm, friendly, melodic and with spacious production. It brings to mind the warm summers of the 70s, radio 2 playing in the background and time stretching out into the distance.

If that feels bittersweet in 2012, several of the tracks here push the melancholy electronica for all it's worth. The single 'Sad', in particular, is stunning - an instant classic. 'Foreign Fields' has the same vibe (and reminds me of a basslined, synthesized 'Drive' by The Cars) with haunting backing vocals and beautiful lyrics. Elsewhere (eg 'Good Morning To The Night', 'Karmatron', 'Phoenix') things get a little more upbeat but with some prog-rock touches.

If I didn't know beforehand that each song is a cut-and-shut of several Elton tracks I would never have guessed it. Pnau have achieved something so worthwhile with this album; far more than a remix project, this really is a work of art.

From a big Elton fan I was dubious about the release...

I cant stand it when there are remixes which are just a total rehash, and nothing 'new' has been added to them. Well, this isn't what you get here. Added value, a different twist, thoughtful mixing and some super smoooooth tunes. Some tracks are faster, with some a slower tempo...not all 'dancey'. None the less, the album has a great feel and a varied mix of tunes to give balance. Stand outs for me are 'Phoenix" (favourite) and 'Sad'......download this now !

According to an interview Elton did for that kids' radio station Radio 1, "Sad" is also, if not fundamentally, using the backing vocals to Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word. This album is completely, wholly, fantastic. If you're not living in the past (before the age of jazz, when everyone did and re-worked each other's songs) you will realise this isn't by any means trashy teenage pop music - dance music is quite different, and Elton is quintessentially 'pop'. Basically, it is modern: they have taken sometimes completely obscure and not-famous parts of Elton's back catalogue (sometimes even he didn't know what bit of what songs they'd used) and updated them to be modern, summery, feel-good dance tracks. And done it with class and sophistication. Even the title track is just one line in Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters. I haven't heard such good, original production since Basement Jaxx (though this is nothing like Basement Jaxx). I am so utterly impressed. There is only one reason Elton would personally allow someone to re-work his music - because they are good enough. No wonder he is so chuffed with this record. And so am I. The deluxe version on iTunes comes with two remixes of Sad, three remixes of Good Morning to the Night and the video for Sad.

Simply put....What a breath of fresh Air and very creative sampling. Remoids me of the first Air CD and Dario G with a little Groove Armada and William Orbit thrown in.
A great summer disc to keep on repeat. Sorry I don't use an ipod or MP3's. I like my CD's and my 5 disc changer, thank you very much.
Cheers!!!!

I was waiting for this day the 16th july 12 to download this album, after hearing the track sad weeks ago i thought what a great track infact the whole album is very good, and it re-minds me of elton,s music from the early days of the 1970,s and late 60,s style of his music, which in my view he had lost in the 80/90/00,s i wish the tracks were a little longer though, but im still very happy, and at this price from amazon its very good value, im sure you wont be dissapointed if you buy it.......well done elton from one happy customer......

Surfacing from a sea of musical mediocrity that currently afflicts the current music scene is this little gem. Pnau have proven that its is possible to re invent music in such a way that you have to admire their boldness in trawling through Elton Johns back log meshing together different song parts and imprint their personal stamp on them.

Lets makes things clear here this a Pnau album through and through and should be reviewed as such. Elton John's material is a contributing factor but the duo's inventive approach and execution lifts the music to another level and makes it their album.

A number of reviews comment on the albums brevity. Personally I feel the short track duration adds to the appeal leaving you wanting more, so you play the track again and again.This one of the albums strengths and suits the nature of the songs. Any longer and the tracks appeal diminishes.

As a non EJ fan most of the songs Pnau have chosen are unfamiliar to me so my opinion is not influenced .

High points abound. My personal favourites are Foreign fields( incredibly good), Sad, Good Morning to the night and Phoenix , but the rest is still enjoyable.

I can recall Pete Drummond once reviewing Spirit's debut album back in 1968. He said it left him in a cold sweat because it was so good.

So is this.

As a long time Elton John fan and something of a completest there was no way I would not buy this but I wasn't too keen on the idea as current pop/dance music isn't my thing.

But I was more than pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed this album. It's very creative and innovative and at times had me struggling to remember which Elton songs were being sampled.

Hopefully this will introduce a new generation to the wonderful music of Elton John.
