An odd noise

"Apart from the 12" mix of Love Shack - which is this cd's killer - this is a pretty savage restructuring of the B-52s sound. It's puzzling to think who this will appeal to, as the sound is so aggressively contemporary, and a lot of 52 fans (I suspect) are no longer in the first flush of youth (so to speak). Like the previous reviewer says, don't get this if you're wanting the original thing, but by all means give this a listen."
VIVA LES BEEHIVES!

"The B-52s have acquired a great number of allies in their time, and this CD reflects the huge amount of love for their work that exists out there... these re-mixes are the perfect gift for any fan who loves both the B-52s and electronic music. I am however IN COMPLETE DISAGREEMENT with the first review. The Moby remix of "Good Stuff" is a brilliant example of mid-90s techno. OLD SCHOOL! You can forget about the 12" mix of "Love Shack". Anyways, this CD will facilitate yet another generation's introduction to these masters a funky-kitschy-avant-garde."
This ROCKS! It's just plain fun!

"If you like the B-52's you'll want this CD. There are some great remixes on here, and they just fit the band so well. Front to back fun. A very enjoyable listen.But, this shouldn't be a pick for a first-time CD from the band. This is incredible fun only if you know the band. If you don't, then it's gonna sound a lot like "yet another" album of dance tracks."
