    I have minimal experience with the band "Gong", and I didn't have any before purchasing this 2-CD set. I actually thought this was a DJ Mix featuring The Orb. Later on, I thought it'd be remixes of an artist named "Gong You" thanks to how the title was written. Instead, these are 16 remixed versions of tracks from the 1974 Gong album "You". I gave the original a listen some time ago, but that's not what this review is about.
    Overall, most of the remixes are solid with only a select few taking away from the experience. While the original was an ambient-like space rock album, this one goes just about everywhere. From the hard-hitting goa trance of Total Eclipse's and Mad Stof's takes on Isle of Everywhere and Master Builder respectively. The Shamen mixes the goa element with a wicked drum & bass beat, and the same goes with the more abstractly ambient Glo remix. While the album is filled with a good amount of bangers, there are some more gentle tracks like The Orb's dubby reworking of the interlude track A PHP's Advice. A standout in the bunch for sure. Youth and Doof's offerings feel like slightly-more modern takes on the space-rock formulas on the original album; whilst Yamatsuka Eye lays down an experimental rock breakdown. There's also some tribal experimentation with the remixes by Moodswings and Astralasia, the former turning into a jungle banger in the latter-half. Perhaps the most impressive for its time is System 7's trance-y exploration of A Sprinkling of Clouds. This track could still work in a dance mix today.
    Sadly, most of the tracks do suffer from noticeably cheap or dated production. Considering half of the names are nobodies, it makes some sense as to why some of the mixes sound dated even for the time (not just accounting the elements of the originals still left in). I'd also say there's a few duds to be found, especially the mixes by Electric Skychurch and Gregorio/Stephen Budd who I feel don't deliver much of note. I'll still say the Mad Stof and System 7 remixes alone make this worthy of buying. Even more psychedelic than the original album was, and rightfully deserved.

    Favorite Tracks: The Orb's Gong With The Wind Mix, Astralasia's Or Wilja Mix, System 7's Belly Dance Mix, Mad Stof's Ishtar Now Mix, Glo's Infinite Possibility Mix
    Least Favorite Tracks: Electric Skychurch's Acidpunk Mix, Gregorio/Stephen Budd's Have A Cuppa Tea Edit, 808 State's Massey Mix.
