Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Seattle-based band Minus the Bear already mixes electronics and edgy rock-based sounds, so it makes sense that they'd get the reissue treatment; Interpretaciones finds their 2005 album Menos el Oso chopped and re-grooved. Most of the remixers choose to highlight the atmospheric ambient side of the band that usually percolates in the background, and it works surprisingly well. Of course, the most successful remixes often have only a tangential relationship to the original, and often seem like excuses for someone to make a bunch of fun noise on top of something else (and then get paid for it). Aphex Twin and Kevin Shields mastered the art of this in the '90s (and presumably were too expensive/ not available for this project) and Dark Baby's Nintendo-64-cut-and-paste-funk remix of "Hooray" and Morgan from the Blood Brothers' lovely, minimalist Robert-Wyatt-meets-Takemura take on "Pig War" likewise fit that mold. They use MTB's moody post-rock as the basis for something totally different and new. --Mike McGonigal

Product Description

Minus The Bear's records are frequently steeped in atmospherics and peppered with some serious prog-rock tendencies. Their most recent full-length, "Menos El Oso", was heavy on samples and their live set finds guitarist David Knudson playing his pedals more frequently than his guitar, hunkered over the side of the stage, syncopated and spastic. As the band transforms, this record achieves that rare remix goal of presenting an already esteemed record in an entirely new light.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite albums October 27, 2008
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
I think this album has got a significant amount of lower ratings due to it being quite different from previous minus the bear albums. IMO it's one of the albums I have been able to listen to over and over again. It is very experimental and therefor like other experimental music i think it's really hit and miss but if you like electro-pop or digital music this album is amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars High highs and REALLY low lows May 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It goes w/o saying that this shouldn't be your first MTB album. Menos is the masterpiece. At the same time, you have to understand this album for what it is. it is a remix album. So you can't expect it to be the new MTB release. With all that being said, this is a meh pick up. The remixes where they actually use the words from the original songs and resemble the originals (isn't that by definition what a remix is???) are great. 1,2, and 8 are amazing. Then you have the rest. I have no idea what some of these DJs were thinking. Some didn't use any of the words from the originals and their remixes dont even remotely resemble the originals. the middle of the disk (tracks 3-6) is complete garbage. if i wanted to hear some stupid DJ "spin" his own stuff then I would have bought their crappy cd. The Pig War is probably my favorite MTB song but the remix doesn't have any words to it. I was really disappointed. I would recommend buying tracks 1,2, and 8 off Itunes. I would have been much happier paying 3 bucks instead of 14 for this CD.
