CD Reviews

I'm your money
Timothy J. Johnson | 09/30/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Imagine trying to be hard-life grit image with backstreet boys looks and big band sound mixed with synth based new wave. Heaven 17 prospered 5 years on the Alt scene, especially LA's KROQ, during a period called glamour wave (Spandau Ballet, Simply Red). Most of the remixes you probably don't have if you live in the US. They are awesome to listen to. Crushed by the Wheels of Industry brings on new meaning, with its reference to 17's previous hits sampled. Play to Win is still the biggest superhit never to catch on. You better get this album, its worth twice that."
A fairly good CD

"This CD is quite good. I especially liked the remixes of "Play to Win" and "Penthouse and Pavement". Good enhancements of these tracks which were just a bit on the bare side on the original vynal LP that I purchaced when it was just released. Also, once it gets started, I do like the "Temptation" mix for the most part. My only "down-side" opinion is that most of the cuts were over done for my taste. From my bridge, I'd have preferred that they'd have stayed just a little closer to the original recordings and simply extended, "pumped-up", and maybe slightly glamorized the tracks to make them club-friendly. If you do like dance club music that departs a bit from the originals, I'd recommend this CD. And I am glad to have this copy in my collection. But for my own taste, I think I'll purchase the CD's containing the original versions as well."
