However, what's up with these lousy remixes? The themes of the remixes seem to have no actual meaning in these remixes, and instead of the dynamic, emotional rollercoaster "Blue Monday" is, what you end up is mindless techno beats that is totally unsatisfactory.
Skip this single - go for the full album.
In case you're not the usual MTV-watching, IQ-below-room-temperature type, I'll spare you the reminding of the originality of this song. I just find it curious that Orgy not only decided to cover the best selling 12" single of ALL TIME, but decided to butcher it note by note. Truly a sad day for music..
We start the CD off with the single version of Blue Monday... if you've got 'Candyass', you've heard this; if you have a radio, you've heard this. The second track is the Optical Vocal Mix, which is pretty much your straight-forward drums 'n' bass mix of Blue Monday, and while only 6:37 long, it feels longer than most songs on here. Track three, the Green Velvet Mix of 'Stitches', it blows. For the love of God, stop trying to remix this song, it's not possible. It's basically six minutes and eleven seconds of... looped over a monotonous tune. Just terrible, I can't say enough bad things about this "song".
My patience has paid off! Track four and five, the Club 69 Mix and Club 69 Dub, respectively, are REALLY good. They must have samples from the original New Order 'Blue Monday', because the beats from this sound IDENTICAL to New Order's version. The songs have this 80's feel to them, almost like a New Order/Orgy hybrid song, but at the same time they sound very cutting-edge, and are my personal favorites from the single. The Club 69 Mix clocks in at a whopping 8:40, while the Dub is half a minute shorter, but you'll wish both of them were longer, they're that good. Track six is the Optical Instrumental Mix, which is the Optical Vocal Mix without, you guessed it, vocals! Moving on, for track seven, we get DJ Dan! If you've read my 'Opticon' review, you'll know how much I love this guy ;-).Read more ›

#2 a new look of the original. Read more
