I like the acid house touches that Blank + Jones brought to Kein Anschluß. They have turned up the pressure considerably from what was already the prime dancefloor cut on "Instead" but the essential core of the song still remains to support the structure they've built on to the foundation. It manages to keep my interest throughout its 7:28 length via series of ever changing "movements." Had I never heard the SITD remix of this track first, I would be quite happy with it, but I prefer the Moroderspace modifications of the SITD remix far, far more than Blank + Jones efforts. That's not to say that I dislike the Blank + Jones mix. I don't. I find it to be excellent house music; something I rarely say. So for me I'd have to award their mix 4/5 instead. As far as the SITD remix, it is undoubtedly my favorite remix of the last decade.

In regards to The Manhattan Clique remix of "Home [Tonight]" I can only add echo chamber to your comment, so I'll stop here.

If you only bought one single in 2007 and this wasn't it, you messed up.

Blank and Jones do surprisingly understated remix and production job on the already club-friendly, bass laden beat stomper that Kein Anschluß was to begin with. It's good to know that Piet and Jaspa, as I prefer to call them, are secure enough in themselves that they don't feel the need to crank the levels and twiddle the effects knobs in an exaggerated masturbatory fashion just to make sure people don't miss the fact that,

"ahem, This Is a Remix And I Am a Production Wizard and I Will Beat You To Death with My Attempts To Impress You with my 1337 Skilz." Imagine that's in all caps, bold, italic and flashing different colors. That's a remix jockey.

And far too often it's just such a remix jockey, desperate to make a name for himself, who is given license to turn a promising track into utter garbage. (For some reason a name from the past, "Shep Pettibone" comes to mind, I have no idea why.)

Thankfully Piet and Jaspa already have their own names and they settle instead on doing what a good remix producer is supposed to do: not let you know he's there, not bring attention to every added element and effectively blend in what he has added.

Home (Tonight) demonstrates this subtlety even better. In fact it's hard to be sure the remix from the album version without paying close attention. Rather than stomping all over the original with "Kewl Effexxorz" and showering the listener with bleeps and clicks and whooshy noises, the remix team has done what they're supposed to do: get out of the way and fade into the background.

Summary: Two great tracks, slightly and subtlely extended so they last a few more minutes, with no obvious "guitar heroing" on the part of the production teams, no "Hey Lookit Me, I'm Remixxxin" gimics.

If you don't have this single, especially after hearing a few minutes of it, there's probably something wrong with you. Be sure to consult a physician.
