REVIEWS :

[culled from a review of the original re-release] The version of The Western Lands, remixed by Inoue and featuring additional bass by Jah Wobble, DJ Spooky contributing various 'noises' and Tetsu on electronics is a fine remix. There is an aggressiveness here that I like. Unfortunately with the remix of Seven Souls from Tim Simenon, it doesn't do all that much for me except make me reach for the remote time and time again. The drums tend to overpower the lyrics for me and being quite partial to the original I prefer to keep my memories as they are, that being that Seven Souls was an original and powerful idea and still carries a lot of weight and ideas for me. Thaemlitz's contribution is ethereal and mysterious, almost ominous. Some nice guitar samples evoking imagery of Morocco or somewhere equally as exotic. Voice manipulation as well. Basically a great track. (Must check out more of his material when i think of it.)
