Not for Telex Fans, but for Remix Fans

"I am about as big a Telex fan as you will ever find anywhere. I have all of the original singles, maxi-singles and albums from the vinyl days of the late 70s and early 80s, and over time replaced the albums with the CD reissues. Being the Telex completist, I just had to have this remix album. Bad mistake."I Don't Like Music (Remix)" (12 tracks, 74 min.) take well known ("Moscow Discow", "Twist a St. Tropez") and not so well known ("I Don't Like Music" is the B side of a single) tracks and turn them over to various remixers. I'll be upfront about it: I am not into "house" or "techno" music, nor am I really into the "club" scene (underground or otherwise). Simply put, I have never heard of any of these remixers. I was quite disappointed with what I heard, because the songs sound absolutely nothing like the original Telex songs. It reminds me of some of the Depeche Mode remixes that I've heard, which also sound so far away from the original songs. When Telex released maxi-singles, they contained "alternative" versions of the hit song. That meant generally a (much) longer version of the original song, perhaps with a new synthesizer solo or something like that. However on this remix album, mostly you wouldn't know these remixes are based on the originals if you didn't know better. I can't say whether these remixes make any sense or not, they just didn't appeal to me at all. I guess I should have been more careful, but this album is certainly not geared towards the Telex fan as such, but rather to the fans of techno/house/remix music. Buyers beware..."
'80's originals get '90's facelift!

"If you are currently into today's dance music, you certainly will appreciate the new interpretations of these old classics. Their biggest hit, "Moscow Diskow", is included here with two different, unique versions. Other notables are "Raised By Snakes","Twist A Saint Tropez" and "Eurovision". Being that I have known of these songs for years, makes it that much more enjoyable. If this not the case for you, it doesn't matter. Simply because you will find yourself dancing or moving in some form or fashion. In conclusion, of the numerous "re-mix albums" that have hit the market in the last 5 years, this is certainly an enjoyable one from beginning to end!"
First volume of Detroit inspired remix revival
Jay M | Dublin, Ireland | 10/14/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)
"OK here we have some remixes from the cream of the worlds electronic producers (particularly Detroit) of a Belgian pop-disco band of the 70's and 80's. Now I know what you're thinking but let me allay your fears.From Carl Craig's rework of 'Moskow Diskow' you know if you're into Detroit Techno, Chicago House or modern electronic dance in general, you won't be frightened of this album. In fact you'll probably love it!Anthony Shakir's stunning remix of 'Raised by Snakes' is my personal fave, but elsewhere you will find great remixes by the likes of I:Cube, Ian O'Brien and Buckfunk 3000."
