Remember seeing this at a record fair around the time Very was out. Love these bootlegs, very 90s!.. Although sometimes they look better than they sound, as would appear to be the case here!

I do not understand why people dont enjoy the record, in my opinion I enjoy every time I hear it.

Wow, get away and stay away from this release as far as you possibly can. I REALLY hate saying that because I am usually such a supporter (generally) when it comes to fan-made remix projects. I even listened to the full project three times just to make sure that I couldn't find any redeeming qualities about this release. And actually I did find one, and that is The Theatre.

I think what sets this track apart from all the other songs on this release is that it literally is not murdered by the remix. Mind you, it's not perfect, for the drum track does come dangerously close to being just a tad bit overbearing. The best way I can describe it is, it just doesn't sound completely in harmony with the rest of the track. That, and I think this song could've ended a little bit quicker instead of just editing in transitional parts of the song and slapping it on the end. It sounds too shoddy and random, as if the remixer was running out of ideas and just started throwing in whatever ingredients that were left in the cupboard, just to make sure the song was seasoned enough. But in comparison with the rest of the tracks on this release, this song is definitely one that stands out.

To put it simply, do yourself a favor and just pass this one by.

A very poor bootleg. This is just fan made remixes of some of the tracks that were released on the Very album. I think this was released around the time of the album's release. The remixes here just take the original tracks and overlay them with large sounding synth effects, almost as if to completely capitalize on the mega-dance pop sound of the original album. Very rarely do they fit into the original arrangement though. Case in point: Take Off mix of Liberation. One of their best songs, utterly butchered. Some fans have said about the sound quality too, although for me the only issue with the sound quality is a lot of the remixes have Neil's voice buried so deep in the mix you can barely hear him. I can't recommend this at all, its just poor fan made remixes that really don't bring anything new to the table. Stick with the original album, its one of their best. Avoid this though even if you are a seasoned fan.

Tend to agree with Andreich's comments although the end result is quite good. The best mix for me is The Theatre and Liberation is quite different. Excellent packaging.

This is the album everybody could have produced at home. Actually, one person has already done it. Just pick up some rhythm on the rhythm machine software and start it simultaneously with the Pet Shop Boys legal album. The resulting s--- is to be digitized any way you please.

This release is an example that a foolish fan's challenge to introduce something new to the creation of his beloved group - may be fulfilled by some really wild chance.
