Many bands don't really take the time to remix themselves anymore. Underworld used to do it, the Orb became great at doing it. Being a huge Thievery fan, I was really looking forward to see hoe they'd reinterpret the songs. I wasn't disappointed. I should start by saying that I've always thought that remixes should different from the original (otherwise, what's the point?), while retaining enough to know it's the same song (why bother calling it a remix when all you've done is sample a snippet of vocal?). This is what Thievery's done. They've taken enough of the song's background bits and pieces and brought them up to the foreground. Despite what the other reviewers will tell you, this is actually what dub is. The original producers wanted to take vocals out, but make enough of a song, so they took little melodies that were pushed into the background and brought them up front. Dub is not just having a loud bassline, chopped up beats, and melodies that drop in and out at the push of a button. So it succeeds at making new versions of songs, and succeeds as a dub album. But how are the tracks themselves? State of the Union is very up-tempo and has a more traditionally-reggae beat to it. Very good to dance to. Until the Morning is more laid-back, with a real beat and some serious bass to it, as well as the requisite chopped-up vocals. The Outernationalist has kept the same bass line, only started it at a different point, which makes it sound different, and has a great instrumental break. Exilio has also been given a dancier beat, and some nice little organ, but mostly the same. The Kid Loco version of Until the Morning is one of those tracks for which the label "lounge" was invented. Relaxed windwoods, cool little guitar licks, it's very nice. Resolution is the most dub-like here.Read more ›

While this album has a few good tracks, I found the remixes to not have the same flavor and flow of typical TC albums. While I think most people will enjoy this album, whether TC fans or not, I personally have to rate this as my least favorite TC disc overall.

If you have the rest of the TC lineup, get it; otherwise, you may want to look elsewhere to spend your $10.

The Corporation is back in business! 2004 has been a great year for the Thievery boys as they gave as the fantastic mix cd "Outernational Sound" and now a dub reworking of select cuts from 2003's "The Richest Man in Babylon". All of the tracks have been "rewound" by the Corporation as well as two remixes by Kid locco and Voidd. Kid Locco's mix of "Until the Morning.." is simply gorgeous and def. something in similar vein to the Thievery sound. Voidd's mix is house-y but still so smooth that it will have the ladies undressing in no time! There's also a never before heard track called "Truth & Rights" that is a politically charged skank down with toasting to die for! Pick this up ( I got mine for 7.99) it's cheap and amazing....need more of an invitation?

I do not know what the other reviewer was listening to but this remix cd is nice. You have to listen to this for what it is and not what you think it should be. The reggae remixes are nice and funky. The remix of Until the morning is nice. Not as good as the orginal. I am a little bias as the original is one of my favorite thievery tracks! I give 4 star, as it is hard for me to give remix CDs 5 stars. If you a thievery fan or just a fan of good music you must buy this.

It took a little bit to warm up to, but this is a great disc to own for you big Thievery Corporation fans. Nice compliment to The Richest Man... and it goes cheap. My only complaint is that its too short...works nicely if you are "out of this world" however ;).

Pick it up while you still can...great remixes by the band themselves.

I listened to "Babylon Rewind" before I heard "Richest Man in Babylon" so I am less biased towards the original versions of these songs. Perhaps its just a matter of the first impressions being the best, because my opinion is that these dub versions are MUCH better than the water downed originals. I cannot see how anyone will not want to be moving with the premiere reggae dub track "State of the Union" -- a fitting op-ed on the current state of politics. Contrast that with the downtempo, sensual French lyrics of the closing track, "Une Simple Histoire". In the middle of it lies the 100% ambient track "Resolution" sans vocals. Some might misconstrue this to be some dancehall reggae dub album. No, no, no.. this AMBIENT dub with a tinge of ambient, reggae, folk, and world music. As with all works of Thievery Corporation, this blissful music is a category unto itself. This rates as my second fav Thievery Corp album!

PS - Dub: Reggae dub, but the generic use is for the layering of an original track, intermixed with floaty rhythms with or without vocals.
