Product Description
For nearly 25 years Depeche Mode has been making groundbreaking music, including being at the vanguard of remix culture since its inception. A "greatest hits remixed" collection, Remixes 81-04 is both a celebration and a flashback of the evolution of the remix and of Depeche Mode. Rleased as a limited-edition three-disc set, featuring a bonus disc of rare remixes, and a "best of" single disc, Remixes 81-04 features some of the most renowned remixers of the world, including Underworld, Goldfrapp, Air, Kruder+Dorfmeister, Timo Maas, Flood, Francois Kevorkian, Adrian Sherwood, William Orbit, Portishead and, of course, Depeche Mode.

"Your need to own this CD will depend on your tolerance for remixes and your desire to possess all things modal. Ranging from inspired to wretched, "Remixes 81-04" (even if it stops with "Ultra") has its moments. There are moments that the mixers actually catch the atmosphere of the song (Portishead with Johnny Dollar fare the best, on "In Your Room"), and the worst is when Underworld tries to claim that they remix "Barrel of a Gun." Sampling a snippet of vocal and putting it over a droning machine doesn't make for art. On the other hand, "Route 66" gets a joyous romp courtesy of the Beat Masters ("Personal Jesus" gets a similar treatment). Using a jazzier arrangement and clever drop ins, it is one of this compilation's highlights. Goldfripp, who doesn't make dance hash out of "Halo," even manages to improve a great song. "Remixes" functions as a quasi greatest hits, with extended versions of a few popular favorites. But frankly, if you don't have either for the "Singles" collections, they are a far better choice than this. For that matter, so are the majority of the Depeche Mode maxi-singles, most of which are still available."

"I haven't been a big follower of Depeche Mode. I like what I've heard so far though. I actually got this CD because of the bands doing the remixes. They did an awesome job; just like I thought they would. The Francois Kevorkian remix of Personal Jesus has great snapping beats and really moves along. I've been a big fan of Goldfrapp for awhile and their Halo remix is very reminiscent of their first album. It has an enchanted-forest-like feel. This CD is just fun and really makes you feel like dancing. A high recommendation."

"Some peeps might not like this album because it contains "remixes" wich are more Electro or Dance than the original one. Thats a reason why some of you people dont like it,Because you arent an adult,Maybe you are a teenager like me. Girls who go to the clubs like this kind of music for goin' out arround there and dance with their guys. It's not totally for just listening arround,It's more for like having it on a club. This CD is great,It tries to revive ssome of the old songs DM has made so far.These remixes might be kind of Electro or Dance but this new version of Enjoy The Silence that was made by Linkin Park is more rock wich I love it and I hear it all the time.But it would of been nicer if DM Makes again these songs with a better sound,I mean,Revive them theirselfs not asking help to other guys to remix it.It just keeps being the old thing but with a new sound.Wich i think that stuff from 2004 dont go with stuff from the 80s or close to the 90s.So thats what I think.But it would of been nicer if Depeche Mode itself revives these songs singing them again and giving it another sound,Or just remixing themselfs. Depeche Mode is a very good band,If a band like Linkin Park can remix songs,Why not DM? DM has more experience and would come up with excellent remixes."

Thank you so much for Vitamin Z - Rites of Passage. That's one of my all-time favorite albums. I used to have it on vinyl back in the day. I love your blog.

Hi Saltyka,

First of all, this has got to be the best new wave blog. You got very rare materials.

Second, Vitamin Z's rites of passage and demos' posting have expired. Hoping that you will repost these in the near future.
