Format: Audio CD
5 of the songs (which is almost HALF of the album kids!) have the subtitle of "Extended Mix" in brackets next to the songs title: Lullaby, Fascination Street, Lovesong, Pictures Of You (which fair enough is a dub version) and Hot Hot Hot. All of these, excepting Pictures Of You, do exactly what it says on the tin - they are just extended versions of the songs.
This sort of works with Lullaby (or you could always listen to the original and press the repeat button...), doesn't work at all for Lovesong (it's too "straight" a song to warrant long instrumental passages and simply has no excitement in this format), and Hot Hot Hot is also a bit lifeless unless you really do want to hear individual guitar lines playing for a minute at a time.
Pictures Of You is an interesting one as it's a full on Jamaican-dub version, while maintaining the guitars of the original. It's interesting because it's different, but ultimately a bit daft if you think about it for too long !!
Fascination Street is the one extended version that really works well. This is a testament really to how good the original version is. The original is so good that's it's always a shame when it ends, so what better a thing to do than have a really long version of it ! The majority of Cure fans (myself included) look on this extended mix to be superior and now consider it to be the definitive version, much the same as how many Star Wars fans think the Special Editions are better than the originals (I don't !).
OK then, now for the REAL remixes:
Close To Me was once a fast paced almost dance track, now it's a lazy, spaced out under a tree, mellow groove. This comes courtesy of Happy Monday's producer Paul Oakenfold and retains the feel of said band, very much in the style of Step On.

Unlike most Cure fans, I heard these extended versions before the originals. The Cure's music has here been adapted for the dancefloor without sacrificing its rock appeal in the process. The music is spacious, atmospheric and emotionally compelling, far more than just a dance rhythm added to the mix. In fact, when I compare these magnificent versions of Pictures Of You, Inbetween Days and Close To Me to the originals, they sound almost flat and one-dimensional. I am sure most Cure fans would disagree, but for me these extended mixes have an added charm and flow. The dance rhythms provide a hypnotic twist and do not in any way detract from the profundity of The Cure's music. Mixed Up is definitely my favourite Cure album.

Bought this on tape 25 years ago and liked the up beat mood of the Cure's songs put to dance beats which back in the early 1990's, was the thing to do as guitar music on the whole had stagnated and lacked direction after the 1980's ended due to dance music becoming popular. Great cd.

The BEST remix album by any group of their own songs I've ever heard.

Every track is a classic.

Very Highly Recommended and it contains a new track that isn't available on any of their other albums!

Very VERY Good.

The sound quality is awful, like it is in mono. Some of the mixes sound dated, in that they utilise the early nineties hip hop drum beat, unlistenable then, and an instant turn off now. As mixes go, this could have been so much better considering some of the mixes The Cure have at their disposal.

I love this remix album. I had it on tape back in 1990/91 and pretty much wore it out. I bought it at the time for the Paul Oakenfold mix of Close To Me and because I liked the tracks "Lullaby" and "Lovesong". I've grown to love the other mixes too - particularly "The Walk". Sadly though, "Why Can't I Be You" is missing from the CD version. A crying shame.

Under nornal circumstances,I don't like the Cure at all, but this album is great - full of interesting and well put together re-mixes. I've listened to the originals after hearing this album and still don't like them, but this is a peach. I don't know how Cure pureists would view it, but I think you're missing out if you haven't heard this. Best track - Fascination Street.
