Synopsis

Amazon.com
In 1967, Michel Colombier and musique concrète pioneer Pierre Henry achieved surprising success on the French charts with four instrumental compositions that incorporated rock guitars and synthesizers with Henry's trademark spliced magnetic tapes. To celebrate that release's 30th anniversary, several hotshot European remixers went to work on "Teen Tonic," "Jericho Jerk," "Too Fortiche," and the most famous of all, "Psyché Rock." The result is a superior showcase of just about every style in today's electronic music, from St. Germain's acid-jazz to Tek 9's hyperventilating drum and bass to Dimitri from Paris's easy touch. While many dismember the songs, it's a testimony to the awesome staying power of "Psyché Rock" that it survives assaults by Ken Abyss, Fatboy Slim, William Orbit, and Coldcut, and always sounds utterly colossal. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Mistitled and disappointing
guymanndude | Schaumburg, IL USA | 11/10/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Fans of the original work and its groovy synths will be disappointed to learn that it has been cut up by the various artists. The original music isn't presented unedited, so the average listener won't have any idea what it sounded like unless he happens on a vinyl copy of the album. The closest comparison we have is the Futurama theme song, which stretches fair-use laws to rework "Psyche Rock.""
