WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: A remix album of Broken, which makes many songs unrecognizable, for the worst.
SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: Taking a powerful, sonic filled EP and remixing it sounds great, but to these ears, the remixes either missed the mark or made sonic hash out of the songs.
The point may have been to add another dimension to these songs, but they were so powerful and direct anyway it seems like a pointless exercise. This really is for completists only.
NOTES & MINUTIAE: This charted in New Zealand and went Platinum in the UK.
IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION: No.
GRADE: C-: You make think differently, but to me this is superfluous.
