The hampster spun the wheel full speed for this one. The Opening track for the album creates the theme for the entire CD. This is going to take you on an electronic trip with brain boosting experimental sound to "Elevation". I will have to say U2 is one of the leaders in creating mixed renditions of their music. Most of the time being the fan of bands like Bjork, Portishead, Massive Attack, The knife, Beck and many more edgey bands, I tend to rave the reviews of these Cds and boost them even more than the original tracks.
"Fast Cars" remix is a perfect example of a song that is better than its original. If you haven't heard of this song before, it is not new, it was the bonus song on the Vertigo Cd that came with the Artwork book package, and I'm sure it was later accessable other places.
"Get on your boots" first remix of the album (two are on here see track number 10) I think only a real U2 fan would even recognize the song in the beginning. This is definatly a sweet doppleganger to its original and by far much more creativly laid down.
"vertigo" remix has this repeatitive guitar mix, pounding beat, and sound dubs which make it stand above the previous mixes for this tune. I love in the mid section when the beat slows and bono's powerful voice takes the song over.
"Magnificent" was my favorite song from the no horizon CD to begin with, and this mix just gave me another way of hearing a beautiful song.
"I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight" Live remix is not my favorite. It does have spicy elements but I still prefer the original version on the no line on the horizon CD.
I bet many of you fans had to look at the CD back for this next mix to see what song it was, and you kept waiting for bono's voice to jump in. I love how the Guitar riffs and drum beat take this song by control and it's just so damn good of a sound..who needs lyrics anyways? and if your still wondering it is "beautiful day" sillys
HOLY BATMAN! "Staring at the sun" has had so many remixes it seems and on this CD is two and I love them both. This one is great to tap a shoe with, or heck get up and dance baby!
Space odessy..this mix of "happiness is a warm gun" took me on a dark trip to the stars
it is so out there and definatly fits in this CD.
DAMN! This is one of the best remixes of any song ever made I believe. U2 pulled a winner out of the hat this time. Honestly this should have been the original "Get on Your Boots" because it just exceeds the song initially and made it a true hit in my mind. The piano, oh man that made it, and the initial beginning to the song.
"City of Blinding Lights" remix..Base is killer, and the vocal mix compelling.
"If God Will Send His Angels" This one sounds to much like a mix I have already heard of this song, I like it but don't find it worth reviewing. So blah!
"Staring at the Sun" Perfect ending track. Above all the most entracing and a mellow remix to a favorite song of mine.
This Cd just goes to show you, U2 have marketing and music making down. They are rich mo-fos for a reason. They know their shit. There is so many avenues a song can take and they know how to utilize every road. So fans, I advise you to get your grubby little paws on this CD you will enjoy it, I guarantee it, with no money back!

This blog is dedicated to Carolyn..thanks for the CD, otherwise this would not be possible.
