Love Is All ‘Mixed Up’
Remix albums can be tricky affairs, sometimes opportunistic cash-ins and stop-gaps, as the record company waits for the next album or doesn’t feel that the time is quite right for a greatest hits compilation or stage musical.
Great to report, then, that this remix album of Love Is All’s 2006 album Nine Times That Same Song is actually ten excellent remixes that are different in sound, yet most impressively manage to work together well as an album in it’s own right. The Bees take on ‘Make Out Fall Out Make Up’ into something that is completely different from the original, Maps’ version of ‘Turn The Radio Off’ is simply gorgeous and when you know that Chicken Lips and hot Chip have also remixed tracks, you know it’s a stormer that provides an fantastic listening experience and works well as a party album.
No shoddy cash-in, but a rare example of an fantastic opportunity used to brilliant effect.
Love Is All…Mixed Up is out on January 21 2008 on Parlophone. Love Is All are currently writing a studio album in Gothenburg for 2008 release.

I have not resorted to posting crappy, cheesy songs on this blog in order to get more hits.
But today is a Bank Holiday, meaning it has been a wonderful, stress-free day, instead of my most difficult classes.
I thought this summed it up pretty well…
