CD Reviews

Love at first sight

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is worth buying for the non-LP track "Love At First Sight" which I think is one of the best songs they ever recorded. If you love the song "Last Night" on the Love Life LP, you might also fall in love this long, moody, atmospheric song.The remix of Undertow is another reason to buy this CD single. I am not a fan of most remixes but this one is an exception. It gives a new sound and feel to the song without being overdone.If you like Lush, you should definitely get this."
Another good CD4 from Lush

"This CD4, from the Split CD, shows how the band really put their best material on their CD4's bonus tracks. In this one, we start off the bonus tracks with a cover tune by Magnetic Fields(?) called "Love at First Sight." The song is turned into a haunting melody in which one feels that the singer is singing directly about oneself. The second tune, "Cat's Chorus" is about taking stock of what has happened "over all the years." I think this song would sound great at the end credits of a movie. The last one "Undertow [Spooky remix]" really takes this song and makes it even more haunting than the original."
"Undertow" remix by Spooky is really something.

"Even for the Lush fan who isn't so much of a completist as to buy the singles, the "Hypocrite" single is a must for one simple reason: Spooky's remix of "Undertow" is honestly a masterpiece of electronic music.Unlike so many techno "remixes," which add foreign beats to the samples acquired from the original track, Spooky's remix uses only elements of what Lush has already done. Phil King's bass and Emma Anderson's guitar playing is reduced to wisps and haunting snippets, while (the late) Chris Acland's drumming is arranged to go places rythmically that Acland probably would have never thought of. The entire remix is 9 minutes long, during which the song builds from ghostly guitar samples to eventually looping Miki Berenyi's beautiful voice. Just for this alone I would recommend the single to anyone who is a Lush fan.The other tracks are good as well. "Hypocrite" seems entertainingly amusing on happy days and consoling when the listener is mad at someone. "Love at First Sight" is the average Lush romantic song, good but here stylistically different from the rest of the work on SPLIT, and so doomed to being a b-side. "Cat's Chorus" is interested, but obviously experiment and also doomed to being a b-side."
