CDs - Trance Remixes. Here are some collected opinions about the so-called "Trance Remixes". These are a couple of discs we are still unsure if they count as RoIOs which are simply remixed originals. The sound quality is generally Sup. From: Ronald. Girardin Dartmouth. Someone recently described what he heard from the Animals trance remixes: "You gotta be crazy Wish You Were Here (Atmosfear-Mix) - Pink Floyd - A Collection Of Great Trance Remixes gotta be crazy You gotta be crazy to fork over hard earned money for this kind of mindless piece of shit.
Whoever did these trance remixes does know jack-shit about Pink Floyd. Floyd is perfect. There's no need to tamper with it. I really feel sorry for everybody who bought any of these CDs. I'm sure there are plenty of legit bands to invest you money into.
Or have you bought these just because it's remotely related to Floyd. Here's another question to the people who bought the trance remixes: Do you have all the legit Floyd on CD? If any of you don't, well then complete your REAL floyd collections first.
How about the Solo Barrett? From: Robert Gary Weiner rgw jove. Review of Pink Floyd: Trance-Remixes. Many people believe that these "Limited Edition Trance-Remixes" of Pink Floyd albums which have made their way into the public sector were done by The Orb.
The Orb are known for being hard-core fans of the Floyd. Although I would like to believe this, it seems improbable that The Orb are the folks doing the remixes. Pink Floyd are constantly being cited as an important influence on today's ambient music scene. It would naturally follow then, that if any Wish You Were Here (Atmosfear-Mix) - Pink Floyd - A Collection Of Great Trance Remixes rock" group would lend itself to ambient interpretations, Floyd would.
Essentially, these "unofficial" remixes are Floyd albums with lots of modern day techno keyboard work, voices, samples and many other sounds thrown in. What happens is a whole new interpretation of Pink Floyd's music. Some people feel that Conjunto Folklórico Los Nocheros Del Paraguay - Conjunto Folklórico Los Nocheros Del Paraguay music should stand by itself and not be tampered with.
However, I do not think it is the intention of the remix creators to distract from the greatness of Pink Floyd's recorded output. Credit is always given to the Floyd themselves. They are remaking Floyd's art into something new and different. In some sense, this is very similar to what Ducamp and the Dadaists in twenties did to the Mona Lisa when they painted a moustache on her. The essence of Floyd still remains in the remixes.
Granted, some are more successful than others, but that is to be expected. These are Pink Floyd albums reinvigorated and renewed in some sense. One does not always have to agree with the new interpretation, but it is a good effort nevertheless. All of the trance-remixes have re-colored the original Floyd artwork and the packaging is as about as professional as there is. The discs are picture CDs as well. Even if you don't like the way the music is re-interpreted, the packaging is Policijska Država - Pro-Past - No Life having.
Most of them also contain over seventy minutes of music, making them a good buy for your money. What follows is a review of Planet Of Women - ZZ Top - Afterburner the known existing remixes. Not all Floyd's back catalog is in trance-remix form yet:.
Trance-Remix of Atom Heart Mother Overall, this one is quite successful at interpreting Floyd's classic experimental album in a modern sense. The "Atom Heart Mother Suite" is really quite good.
The suite lends itself to the technoization of it on this disc. There are samples from psychedelic guru Terrance Mckenna scattered throughout.
Worth owning: A. Trance-Remix of Meddle The first part of You Oughta Know - Alanis Morissette - The Collection disc Red River Valley - Billy Vaughn - The Shifting Whispering Sands pretty well. The ambientization of "One of These Days" is brilliant.
Wall to wall sound that is powerful on a loud stereo system. The new interpretation is at least as good as the original adding a very nice touch with lots of sampled vocals, sounds, and echoed effects throughout them both. That is where the positives stop. There are so many things the remixers could have done with this track to make it ambient.
Instead, it is repetitive, and believe or not, boring. The vocals are hardly even sampled. Proceed with caution: B. Trance-Remix of Obscured by Clouds This remix is very uneven. Most of the tracks hardly resemble the Pink Floyd tracks.
The throbbing beat throughout is more of an annoyance. Uh the Deal", "Stay" and "Mudmen" are nice and relaxing. These are best tracks on this remix with spacey echo effects and multi-layered tracking. The "Speak to Me: Breathe" suite begins with lots a drum machine noises and samples from the songs.
Surprisingly, both "Time" and "Great Gig in the Sky" are weak. Parts of the songs are sampled over and over again, and make Clare Torry's beautiful voice nothing more than a nerve grater on this one. Lots of potential lost on those two. Echo effects and spacey vocals abound. Don't rush out to listen to this one with headphones! Good try: B. As one would expect, this album lends itself to ambient interpretation more than any other Floyd release. I know I may be crucified here, but it is even better than the original: nice spacey wind sounds echo on Gilmour's gorgeous vocals.
A really pleasant listen. This remix definitely lends itself for headphones. Wish You Were Here (Atmosfear-Mix) - Pink Floyd - A Collection Of Great Trance Remixes of Animals This one is perhaps the worst of all the remixes available. There was much potential to re-interpret the songs in a new and creative fashion, but alas this one is a dud. There is no substance to the interpretations of "Dogs", "Sheep" and "Pigs" although "Dogs" works the best of the three.
Some samples of middle eastern music are interspersed Three OClock In The Morning - Erroll Garner - Now Playing "Pigs" but don't work very well: Annoyance city! Avoid this one: D. Even the horrible "Dogs of War" is at least tolerable in the remixed form. Worth checking out: A. This song has so much potential here, but even Rick Wright's amazing keyboard solo is absent.
Lots of spacey echo effects throughout especially on Gilmour's voice. Proceed with your ears open and skeptical: B. Trance Remix of Welcome to Remix This one is a compilation of various remixed tracks. Only Animals and live tracks are not included. There are even some samples from The Final Cut which surprised me. This track is spliced together well and a nice tribute to the Floyd's music. There are no musical additions on this one.
A good remix for club dancing. Surprisingly enough, the remix makers have not done The Wall yet. Keep a skeptical ear: B. These tracks are not repeated on any other remix collection in the same form. Like the title suggests, this ambient interpretation of Floyd tracks lives up to its name. The eight minute version of "Echoes" is quite good and much better than the one on Meddle remix with nice manipulation of the keyboards and guitars.
This remixed version is hellish and menacing. Definitely a step above the other remixed version. A 16 minute version of "Another Brick in the Wall" sparkles with lots of layered sound that is tastefully done. A drum machine throughout the song with samples from "Is There Anybody Out There" is injected throughout. This is an effectual and strong ending to the disc. Definite ear candy: A.
