Editorial Reviews

The Other Side, a joint venture between Time Out (international weekly publication) and Deaf Dumb & Blind (multifaceted entertainment company), is an interactive guide to the bleeding edge of the world's great cities. Each edition is comprised of two elements: a mixed CD compiled by a native audio pioneer, and a DVD guide to "the other side" of the city - a visual handbook for both the frequent flyer and the armchair traveler. The New York installment is compiled and mixed by Fischerspooner, who have crafted an adventurous and genre-bending mix that perfectly showcases their eclectic musical vision. On the DVD, Casey Spooner, the band's vocalist, takes you on a guided tour of the other side of NY. Track list includes Bloc Party, Laurie Anderson, Martin Rev, Legowelt, David Carreta, Model 500, Pixeltan, and many more. This is a DualDisc, which contains a CD on one side of the disc and a DVD on the other. Breakbeat. 2005.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best to view this as a mix CD and skip the guide porion December 22, 2005
The idea behind this CD/DVD dualdisc is that an artist (or pair in this case) would offer a guide to the best of the "bleeding edge" of their city, along with a great mix of tracks. Put out by Time Out magazine (a fixture here in NYC, and elsewhere I presume), I had envisioned this as some sort of edgier Lonely Planet-meets-Back to mine, with a DVD tour to the city in question by the artist. What it turned out to be as a little more disappointing.

You get a twoisided "dualdisc", with a mix CD on one side, and a DVD on the other, as well as an foldout insert that includes a partial map of Manhattan below 59th, parts of Queens (enough to point out PS1), and an equally small part of Brooklyn (mostly Williamsburg, if you couldn't guess) and their attendant subways. On the reverse side from the map is a Time Out style listing of bars, clubs, restaurants, galleries, hotels, shoppping, and "illicit" establishments (including the much-derided Museum of Sex). There are also a handful of picks from Fischer and Spooner listed seperately. The places reviewed are listed (by color and number) on the subway map, and it seems like it would be easy to navigate once you understand the subway system. Also, bear in mind that all of these reviews and trends will be outdated in a couple of months - Time Out NY comes out every week for a reason.

Next up the DVD. This includes many of the same listings as the insert, as well as several videos, which are nice (and a way to justify a DVD I guess). but basically useless for review purposes. Some places in the videos (like Junior's or teany) aren't listed in the insert or on the map. The whole DVD seemed a bit poorly executed, to be honest, and rather disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music to dance to. July 11, 2010

Verified Purchase
Had some really great tracks on it. I don't usually purchase CDs but I felt this was worth the money. I didn't love every song, but the ones I did were worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars love this mix cd April 10, 2007
By thumba
i received this cd as a gift after purchasing the fischerspooner cds...if you know "the other side" you realize these are mix cd's compiled by the featured band. It's not all about electronica - it's about giving you a feeling/taste of music from that city. i love this cd. i've discovered new music to listen to as well as recognizing some music i had heard previously. if you're looking for new music - and you don't live in the electronica box this is a great cd.

2.0 out of 5 stars What is this garbage? July 11, 2006
By Moven
This is the worst purchase I've made in quite some time.

After being blown away by Junkie XL's remix of Fischerspooner's Emerge, I felt the need to buy an album by Fischerspooner. I made a mistake. Apparently, I mistook Fischerspooner's talents for Junkie XL's talents.

This is some of the lousiest electronica I've heard.

The first song is the beginning of the trashfest. The second song, which isn't good either, is one of the somewhat tolerable tracks on the album, mostly due to a humorous hook. A lot of this sounds like alternative/punk rock/electronica.

This album has me completely confused. Is this techno? Is Coochie Coo something that Princess Superstar really expects me to be caught by? Some songs on this album are close to not being music. Every once in awhile a catchy melody or element will surface, but it is always overshadowed by something else that is annoying.

What about the mixing? What mixing??? I could have worked up the transitions on this album at the age of 14. The mixing here is utterly disappointing, which makes the album utterly disappointing. How can a DJ/artist produce an album on which only one song is his, then mix the album like an amateur?

Aside from Hacker's mediocre remix of Fischerspooner's Emerge and a few interesting moments on other tracks (Buffalo Bill... YEEHAA), there is nothing on this album worth your time. If you muster the courage to make it through all of the painful O Superman by Laurie Anderson, you will understand why this album is worth 2 stars at the most.

And the DVD? Man. The music mixed on the DVD is better than the music on the album! Don't worry... that doesn't mean it's good. It's just a bunch of footage of shops, clubs, and events around New York City.
