CD Reviews

(1 out of 5 stars)

"I am a huge fan of Info Society's earlier work. I especially liked Hack and Peace & Love Inc. This CD features poorly remixed versions of their better songs. Most of the remixes are so poorly done that they aren't even danceable. The only positive to this CD is the 2nd CD that comes with it. It contains .AVI formatted full videos of Info Society's songs What's On Your Mind, Waling Away, Repetition, Think, and Peace & Love, Inc. If these are of interest to you, go ahead and get the CD. I wasted my money hoping for good remixes. None were found on this CD. Stay away from it. Info Society needs to reunite the team that made it what it was and get back the pop/dance beats and catchy tunes."

"Ok, being the big huge InSoc fan I am I felt inclined to write a review for the new remix album I picked up the disc finally last night & I love it!!!!!!!! The only downfall is the # of times What's on your mind(pe) is remixed...I am disapointed someone didnt remix "How Long" or various others..In reality how many remixes of Pure Energy does one really need? The good point is Kurt's voice isn't one is not subject to bad vocal stylings of certain bands...except artly on one Did I mention the comp comes with 2 discs? One disc contains 5 videos all for 13 bucks... Kurt also recorded some new vocals for some of the songs... For the most part, the songs that are great are really good and its great to get the disc for those songs.... I give it an 8 out of 10(being highest) 1. What's on your mind(pure energy)-CKB remix techno in a good way...its pretty cool remix2. Closing In-Rosetta Stone mix i love this remix, Rosetta Stone did a great/fantastic job at remixing this song, very club freindly, very dancey...yummy.3. Peace & Love INC-Biokraft mix great song to begin with, this remix is all right..the vocal distortion got on my nerves after a little bit....its not the best remix i've ever heard , gets kinda boring after a minute4. Think-Spahn Ranch mix it could be a ton better...the vocals are too slow for the music, and the little bubble sounds are kinda lame...not a very good remix 5. Whats on your mind(pure energy)-Girl Eats Boy mix kinda slow, could have been made faster, but if youre a dj...i can see this getting pitchshifted to a faster tempo...its pretty good dispite the slowness 6. Walking Away-Leatherstrip Mix Leatherstrip remixes are always sooooooooo darn great...this one is no exception besides the Rosetta Stone remix, this one is one of my faves....very industrial sounding very dance floor friendly 7. Going going gone-Razed in black mix Razed in Black are sometimes hit or miss, this mix utilizes some industrial sounding guitar ala kmfdm-ish, but it fits great with the song and they actually did a great job handling the goods...another winner to the list of faves8. What's on your mind(pure energy)-remixed by Judson Leach & The Exhibition this one grows on you, it works quite well...and makes up for the sorta lame girl eats boy remix...this one kicks ass...9. Empty-Astralasia Mix techno in a bad way. this remix totally slaughters the song...10. Ending World-Electric Hellfire Club opens with some little guitar riff that reminds me of the Prince song "When doves Cry" and well its sucks), oh the singer of EHC adds some vocals to the song and they are toooooooo spooky for InSoc, they should have stopped while they were ahead. 11. On The Outside-THC mix This one focuses on Kurts vocals more and the music takes a background approach, and darn it Kurt sounds sexy....its a great remix of the song.... a stamp of approval 12. Whats on your mind(pure energy)-remixed by David J of Love & Rockets it kinda just bites. techno, along the lines of the new love & rockets stuff, but more techno(this would be techno in a bad way)"
Indeed, weak

"what a shame. kurt is capable of giving fans so much more to listen to, i wish he would come out with new music. i enjoyed all the other info society cds, however this one was a waste of time."
