Vancouver, Canada's Skinny Puppy get the makeover by an eclectic group of acts who pay homage to the defunct trio's decade of horrific industrial dance. The opening track, a fairly uninspiring take on "Rodent" by former Puppy engineer Ken Marshall, belies the gems of innovation woven amid the techno airbrushing that is the disc's main theme. Autechre warps "The Killing Game" into an unrecognizable freeform, San Francisco's Riz Maslen (a.k.a. Neotropic) reconstructs the spooky "Love in Vein" with appropriate bite, and Rhys Fulber (late of Front Line Assembly) transforms "Worlock" into a nightmarish epic. Even more left-field are the contributions from the Deftones (pumping up the aggression but little else) and Guru (contrasting Ogre's anguished howls with bright, funky grooves). Although ReMix Dys Temper serves as reminder that Skinny Puppy are responsible for 1990s synth-rock acts such as God Lives Underwater (whose "Testure" mix is predictable), it also reveals that beneath the layers of signature audio terror were songs that stand up well after the fact and that influenced a generation of electronic experimenters. --Liisa Ladouceur

"This Is a 4 star album really, but the 5 was for offset of some of the extremist opinions.About the album itself: Taken as a standalone work, it's a good album. It's got a good beat and a hard, yet somewhat jazzy style.This being said, this is not a puppy album. It's closer to being a puppy album than, say, a tribute album is, but as some reviewers have pointed out, it's not "the real thing". Taking a fair stance, it's not a boppy album that the Britney fans will love . . . True Puppy fans seem insulted by this but they shouldn't be; it's not "Block Rock'N Beats" that just had the tempo brought up or down . . . it's a remix album. They're songs that have been blended, swapped around, and yes, even sometimes looped in spots. It's a good "get your feet wet" for someone who wants to get into harder music . . . and it's a good change for those of us who sometimes take our more extreme music too seriously.Listen to it before you buy it - if you like it, you won't be disappointed; if you don't like it, you won't waste your money."

"I've had this disc for over a year now and it gets BETTER every time I listen to it. It's one of my favorite SP cd's, and I got em all! No lie... it's definately different than the rest of the collection, but in a good way! I highly reccomend it to newbie's and old fans. It is one of those cd's that you hear something new every time you hear it."
