Not the best mixes...but it's Deee-Lite!

"Since there are 19 tracks, I'm just gonna go down the list and give a little opinion about each to save time:Frenchapella - an edit of Lady Kier's french accent speech in "What Is Love" very cool and flows right into...How Do You Say...Love - which is a fierce club mix of "What Is Love" but with a totally different feel and beat. It never brings you down.Music Selector Is The Soul Reflector - A fabulous remix that could possibly even be better than the album version...possibly.D.M.T. - A fun mix not unlike the original version, but it is a little different. It's fun, though, and that's what Deee-Lite is all about.Mind Melt - original version. And yes, you too can "Move, groove...you can mind melt!"Call Me - my least favorite track on here. It's incredibly monotonous and boring, and although six-and-a-half minutes isn't really a long time for a remix, this one just seems to never end.Ozone Layer - a funky whacked out remix. Much better than the album version, imo, and there's a fun jungle beat halfway through.Goodbeatapella - Very cool acapella of a verse of "Good Beat"Good Beat - Not a very original mix, kind of - "blah"Say Ahh... - a very trippy and fun mix, this one was definitely intended for the minds of ravers, it's mind-blowing (in a good way)I Won't Give Up - a very cool remix of a cool song. Doesn't surpass the original, but gives it a fun new flavor.Won't You Listen...- The intro to the song "E.S.P" - faboo!Groove Is In The Heart - a nice interpetation of the original, breathes *some* new life into an old song.Heart Be Still - another exciting remix, one of the stand-out tracks on the CD.Lovapella - Kier singing loudly, "Open your heart!" and going into the chorus of...Power of Love - A cool mix, the music in it is very dancey and cool, but there aren't enough vocals.Runaway - an ok mix. It's alright once in awhile, but still not the original (the video for that was fierce!)Bittersweet Loving - One of the best tracks on the CD. It's so much better than the album version, a lot more house-dancey than the original. "Loving...no bittersweet!" Kier proclaims in the intro, it's great!Pussycat Meow - Aw! The original is still one of my favorite Deee-Lite songs, and this mix is fierce! It's heavy beats with someone scatting in the background with Lady Kier purring and meowing and saying "La-la-la-la" and "Oh-oh-oh." It's a fun and exciting ender to this Deee-collection.So if you're into house beats, Deee-Lite, or Pussycat Meow, don't miss out!"
Chill-Out with some great Beats!

"If you think of Deee-Lite as funky with a twist of somethin' eighties- THINK AGAIN!!! This album is INCREDIBLE! Everyone I play it for wants to know who it is and how to get it. It's mostly DRUM & BASS remixes of good melodies with GREAT BEATS and excellent vocal samples from the orginals. If you like ANY techno and don't know what to buy or where to start- here's the place! I have listened to this CD so much I have had to replace it twice. Take me up on it- and if you don't like it you can replace my scratched copy! LOL."

"I usually hate remix albums- this was a sweet surprize. Very contemporary, & if you notice it was in made 1996, a time when drum & bass, jungle was barely gaining in massive (unfortunately for all ex-ravers) popularity. Most of the songs sound better than even the original! Well, except the songs from World Clique, both versions are yummy. Very hippy & trippy. *_*"
