Since the early nineties, 16Volt s Eric Powell has been one of the leading
influences in the American industrial rock scene. This is the first official remix
CD from these legendary underground machine rockers. Featuring songs from
their latest album remixed by a menagerie of established legendary artists and
winners of the 2009 American Porn Songs Remix Contest, the album is packed
with 18 tracks of sonic battery.
Solid execution and some excellent tracks make this a good i

"This record brought me back somewhat to the mid-90s techno/industrial explosion. Think some Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, Crystal Method, Filter etc.... no shortage of those groups. Since this is an album of remixes, I did expect originality to be cashed in for hard-hitting beats and clubby effects which turns out to be the case. Good arrangements, not a great deal of originality or continuity. Basically each influence has a turn.
However, there are two tracks of note that really surprised me in a good way -
Alkali (Left Spine Down remix) - A moody brew of lush synths over a steady groove anchored by a strongly picked electric bass - good chillout track
Blackbird (The Gunnery Remix) - A hard-hitting anthemic power-rock song which should be the theme song to the next movie about a guy pushing himself to overcome insurmountable odds.... at 3:18, too short.
Otherwise, I would say this is a solid but forgettable record."
