I think AbijahManiaco pretty much said it all! Not sure why the full version of the mix by Paul van Dyk was left out though - that build-up is fantastic. Still a great collection of remixes, very varied.

Mirror's Edge is one of my favourite games as well; it's fun making your way through the city across the rooftops, finding the fastest possible ways to get from A to B, and evading enemies along the way. It also features a stunning electronic score by Solar Fields, although you could of course also play with these remixes on repeat.

I remember immediately ordering this, after receiving word from an e-newsletter, without any prior sensory exposure and based solely off the artists involved—I knew I couldn't go wrong, and while I was right, I was nevertheless surprised. I had high expectations from Benny Benassi and Paul van Dyk to deliver, and while I can't say they disappointed, I did turn out to be more impressed with the Armand van Helden and Junkie XL mixes.

The immediate stand out, in terms of dance-floor destruction, was—for me—the Armand van Helden mix. Armand combines the beauty of Lisa's lovely vocals with the beast that is his brash production ingeniously weaved around it. Over the years this track has never been far from my virtual-record crate.

I think Benny Benassi was really over-obligating himself at this time with remix responsibility and, in my opinion, his quality suffers from it here. It's not that his remix is bad, it's just that given the choice between his and it's contender—Armand's mix, I always choose Armand's.

Much like Benny's, Paul van Dyk doesn't bring anything particularly special to the table either. It's the remix that you might expect from Paul and nothing more. However it is done well and I have to praise him for integrating the rock and ballad elements so well into his trance envelope.

In terms of a “song”—and I mean in the traditional sense—and overall uniqueness, as well as creativity, I think Junkie XL takes this one. He really seems to “get it” by capturing the feel of the original and complimenting it so well with his own production. Beautiful.

The Teddybears mix I can't really appreciate. Seems to overuse the clap, but I guess it rounds off the package well with something for everyone. And on that note—like me—you really can't go wrong with this CD!
