What Moloko does best--remixes

"With tons of multi-track, hour-long singles, remixes are the most popular form of Roisin Murphy and Mark Brydens' music. Similar to the duo's singles, All Back to the Mine hosts a musical party for all sorts of remixers. Must-haves include: "Pure Pleasure Seeker" (UK vocal) for its complete turn-around on the originally funky song, with extremely catchy vocal samples; "Indigo" (Rivera's dark mix) for its haunting, heavy house beats; and "Lotus Eaters" (neighbourhood mix) for its smooth hip-hop feel. The first CD is more club/dance oriented, and ends at track 10 with the hilarious and saloon-style piano version of "Sing It Back." The second CD contains weirder and more random remixes than the first does, ending with the 10-minute tropical chill-out of "The Time is Now." The tracks blend together on both CDs, with no breaks between tracks, making it seem like a continuous DJ mix. Each CD is about an hour long. Overall, it's a great collection of electronic genres via the wacky, electronic, soul sounds of Moloko. Different from the "Back to Mine" series by Everything But the Girl and Groove Armada."
An interesting arrangement...

"...of dance tunes created from classic Moloko tracks, not the usual fayre of "back to mine" style albums, a genre which seems to have developed to examine a chill lounge style of music and perhaps a contemporary response to the 90's craze for "unplugged" albums. Here the "back to mine" addage seems to be firmly with partying in mind and little hint at chilling, but then these albums have a responsibility to produce new takes on famous tunes while maintianing the essence of the band at the heart of the tracks. Moloko were never about chilling and more about wry, witty, high octane performance. This album captures that perfectly."
