Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On its own, the Pastels' music has never amounted to anything that inspiring. Apart from the occasional wide-screen melody, the British indie band has remained reliably as safe--and bland--as milk. Here, however, it's a different story. With such enticing names as Stereolab, Mouse On Mars, and Tortoise's John McEntire behind the mixing board, the songs are transformed into dizzying and infectious pop gems. Standout moments arrive courtesy of My Bloody Valentine's makeover of "Cycle" and Cornelius's ambient reading of "Windy Hill." One of the most worthwhile and consistently excellent remix albums in recent memory. --Aidin Vaziri

4.0 out of 5 stars Varied, eclectic mix November 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Illuminati is a collection of remixes from the eclectic band the Pastels. The remixes are extremely varied from the soothing sounds of Ian Carmichael to the funky vibes of Stereolab. Featuring much of the band's best work, Illuminati will surely please all of the Pastels fans out there, but given the great artists who take the Pastels songs and re-shape them and turn them into cool trip-hop/lounge style tracks this is a great album for fans of electronic music. One note: the Kid Loco remix of the Viaduct (which is also remixed spectacularly by Ian Carmichael) is an instrumental mix, whereas on Kid Loco's brilliant "Jesus Life..." album the remix contains the vocals. For any fan of Viaduct you know that the lyrics and the enticing singing make it the beautiful song that it is. The Loco track is still creative and cool, but his other one is better. Good, soothing, laidback, music for any occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely May 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Cycle, remixed by My Bloody Valentine, is one of the loveliest songs I've ever heard and abides forever dear to my heart. I both love and mourn that it is obscure, that this album full of shimmering sweet music goes largely unnoticed, even though it is an homage of deepest authenticity and affection. Rather than rate it 5 stars, I'd prefer to rate it Pearl of Great Price. Simply beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than you think January 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As an occasional Pastels listener I was suprised just how fresh sounding this is. Every track seems to push the Pastels further than they've gone before. The Ian Carmicheal mix of The Viaduct is a treat, and the MBV mix of Cycle makes you ache for the follow up to Loveless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice March 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Although I bought this in January, I'd have to classify it as a summer album. I don't know to much about the Pastels. I do know that they're from Britain, and there are a lot of big names here from the indie world that make this cd look very enticing. Jim O'rourke, Stereolab, Cornelius, John McEntire, etc. I was let down just a bit after hearing the first couple tracks, and even after listening to the whole album, I still felt like it was missing something. I listened to it a few more times during the next week, and the songs slowly started to wrap their arms around me and whisper in my ears. Windy Hill, Leaving This Island, and The Viaduct (Bill Wells) really made me start to appreciate this album. Most of the songs, including the three aforementioned ones, are mellifluous, drifting along at their own pace. If you like breezy reading music that's not to heavy on the ears, but has enough substance to have you humming the tunes, try this.

5.0 out of 5 stars day trip October 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
you can lose track of time at moments listening to this album. you intend to get things done, make coffee and all that while listening to it...but somehow things just get put on hold, and you fall into the details of the lovely sounds and poignant chirping melodies. japan boy Cornelius delivers something really unexpected. his rendition of "windy hill" is like a mini world within an already precious one. and there are some funny bits, too, care of the 'remixers' making such excellent use of the Pastel's otherwise childish, oddly tuneless vocals. a real find--if you can set your coffee down.
