Apart from the extended mix of "Somewhere" and the Trouser Enthusiasts Remix of "Discoteca", there is not much going on here. Since the release of the "Further Listening" serie, this release is kind of useless. The remixes are very average, and most of them were previously available on CD-singles. What I don't understand is the let down of some obscure "To Step Aside" remixes, some of them are still unreleased to this day (Hasbrouck Heights / Ralphi Rosario). Their inclusion on this release could have improved the reasons to own it.

I usually have only positive thoughts on PSB production, especially when it comes to remixes and special editions. Generally I like all kinds of remixes, I have no problem with them. However, I found this edition not being really special. In my opinion, the remixes are just boring. I cannot say they would actually fail in clubs, but I won't have this release in my private collection. If you want these songs, stick to the original Bilingual.
