CD Reviews

The hunt ends...

"Well, I'm afraid I've no choice but to concur with my fellow reviewers: although I usually prefer the original song over remixes and covers, Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" remix has been that one big exception ever since I first heard it on the FM dial. Sadly, for several years, this was the only way I was able to enjoy it; my quest to obtain a recording of this coveted track was a fairly frustrating undertaking. I eventually found it on vinyl and was treated to a pleasant surprise: the song runs almost twice as long as the edit I'd heard on the radio! Even though just about all of the restored parts are percussion beats and instrumentals, it still rounds out the tune quite well.But, knowing the limitations of LPs and 12" singles and the inevitable background hiss, skips and pops that would arise from endless playing, and thanks to the miraculous marketplace that is the Internet, I eventually found it on CD single. Now I'm truly happy and at peace... well, at least until the next revolutionary format change anyway, MP3s notwithstanding...`Late!"
This version is much better than the great original.

"This version of In The Air Tonight is even more haunting than the original. While the original became a classic and an automatic Collins anthem, this more than seven minute remix packs a solid punch. The additional In The Air Tonight remix on this CD is another bonus. Collins fans should have this one!!!"

"I really enjoyed the song versions on this CD. However, I thought it was somewhat overpriced for just 3 songs for a used CD. I'm glad I bought it used because a new CD cost much more."
