  • I think I’m probably in the minority of Bush fans that actually liked this remix album; but then, I like both alternative/grunge rock and electronica. Most of the songs on “Deconstructed” are taken from their sophomore CD, “Razorblade Suitcase,” except tracks #1, 9, 10 (all from “Sixteen Stone”), and #11 (which can be heard elsewhere on “The Crow: City of Angels” soundtrack). The remixes are all energetic, save for the moody last track, “In A Lonely Place (Tricky Mix),” which is a nice wrap-up song.Some of the remixes don’t include all the lyrics, just samples, as heard in #10: “Everything Zen (Derek DeLarge Mix).” There’s a second shorter version of this song on track #1 (The Lhasa Fever Mix), which I prefer over #10.The songs I particularly enjoyed were the creepy drum and bass remix of #3: “Swallowed (Goldie/Toasted Both Sides Please Mix),” #8: “Insect Kin (Jack Dangers/Drum and Bees Mix)”–which is almost unrecognizable from the original–plus #2: “Mouth (The Stingray Mix),” which is the best remix on here, hands down, and can also be heard on the “An American Werewolf in Paris” soundtrack.I liked the majority of songs on here, but if I had to choose, my least favorite would probably have to be #9: “Comedown (Lunatic Calm Mix).” The original version is my all-time favorite Bush song, and this remix doesn’t really do it justice, in my opinion.While I loved “Deconstructed” (it’s one of my faves by Bush), the more diehard alt. rock/Bush fan may want to borrow this CD first before purchasing it. It’s not for everybody.
