if only for the bonus tracks on the audio cd.
The final six tracks take the meaning of production and mastering to a whole new level.
These are not clever 're-masters' but complete re visits to some old classics and new material from 'Touch'
The version of The Race (X Race - track fifteen) is utterly sublime, and at a much slower pace than ever before.
Oh Yeah is again cleverly re done in a different style.
Bostich makes up the final track from the back catalogue.
The remaining tracks are basically re visits to some from the Touch album. Be prepared for some serious bass, of the floor shaking variety.
Scorpio Rising will literally have the hairs rising on the back of the neck.
It begs the question - if these guys can produce and master something like this so well, why on earth are there SO many bad / rubbish ones constantly released?
No loudness wars here, just real dynamic range.
The DVD is great fun and is the 'virtual concert' ie - digital rendition of presumably what they hope to achieve in a show in Vegas (so I have read) sometime in the future.
Now that would be a show worth going to.
Me & my Mrs had this playing 1 night while lay on sunbeds in the back garden with a fire burning & it was perfect!
'Stay' is now 1 of my fave tunes ever!
Like other reviewers have asked - come on Yello, give us a tour!
It's a shame Billy isn't still around to put his vocals on this album too!
Theirs has always been a world of its own, leaving little space for imitation or wider musical following. Where some acts opened doors to an entirely new space in electronic music ready to be filled in and developed by others, Yello has always stood alone, on top of their own mountain with no space for others. Just as it is impossible to copy vintage wine, their world shares similar rare qualities that feel uniquely rewarding.
Touch Yello is no different. Saying Boris Blank's instrumentation and music production are flawless would be stating the obvious. His tracks range in mood from mysteriously playful, to nocturnal and cool, from razor sharp to soothing and moving. On the whole the album has a more loungey feel.
The guest singers bring extra colour and warmth, especially Heidi Happy, whose penetrating and soothing voice in tracks 2 and 12 weaves through the tracks beautifully and has the capacity to seamlessly move.
It's incredible to consider the range of styles Boris Blank can pull off and still sound unmistakably Yello.
Some tracks manage to pass by, creating great background accompaniment, but others hit directly home with their sheer beauty and elegance.
Tracks of note would be 1. The Expert - elegant and suave, perfectly sums up the duo.
2. You Better Hide (with Heidi Happy) - a surprisingly beautiful and heartbreaking plead. Masters at work here.
3. Out Of Dawn - Dieter Meier's trademark voice on top of nocturnal latin rhythms.
5. Till Tomorrow - an echoey, jazzy instrumental, with muffled trumpet warming up the room.
