Editorial Reviews

On June 7, 2011, Depeche Mode will release Remixes 2: 81-11 on Mute/Reprise. An inspiring collection of new and classic mixes of material covering their entire career, the album includes remixes of tracks from their 1981 debut Speak And Spell, through to 2009's Sounds Of The Universe, and is the follow-up to 2004's million-plus selling Remixes 81-04. These remixes reinforce Depeche Mode's standing as one of the world's most influential and innovative acts. Depeche Mode have been at the forefront of remix culture for the best part of three decades and this new compilation includes classic mixes from M83, UNKLE, Trentemøller, François Kervorkian and Dan The Automator, alongside all-new mixes from Stargate, Eric Prydz, Karlsson & Winnberg (from Miike Snow) and Röyksopp. In addition to this, the expanded editions include exclusive remixes by former band members Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder - the first time either artist has remixed tracks for their former colleagues. Remixes 2: 81-11 will be available in two different CD formats - Single and Triple Disc versions, as well as digital download and 6LP limited edition vinyl. Highlights from the selection of classic mixes include reworkings of "Dream On" from 2001's Exciter, "Suffer Well," "John the Revelator" and "A Pain That I'm Used To" from 2006's Playing The Angel and "In Chains," "Peace" and "Wrong" from 2009's Sounds Of The Universe, while the new mixes include "Tora! Tora! Tora!" and "Puppets" from 1981's Speak And Spell, "Never Let Me Down Again" and "Behind The Wheel" from Music For The Masses as well as "A Question Of Time" from 1986's Black Celebration. The lead single is "Personal Jesus", from 1990's Violator, also features several strong remixes as part of the package.

If ever a band lent itself to the art of the remix it's Depeche Mode. Since the band's inception 30 years ago, remixes have been a part of their brand, and while Puff Daddy, (or P. Diddy, or whatever Sean Combs calls himself these days) will strut around and claim they "invented the remix", Depeche can calmly sit back and laugh at the impostors. It's been seven years since the last remix compilation from the Mode, and while that may not seem like enough time to elapse between releases, "81-11" proves that the band not only have more original remixes left in their archive to be remastered, but that newer acts are more than ready to lend a hand in re-imagining lost classics.

Of the three discs offered here, disc one is the biggest disappointment. The mixes are all previously released except the Stargate Remix of "Personal Jesus". When you consider that this mix was released a few months ago as a single to promote this set you really aren't getting anything new at all with this disc. There isn't anything particularly wrong with this, but most hardcore Depeche fans are going to own these mixes anyway. When you also factor that the hardcore fans will most likely pick up this 3 disc set, you're more or less buying a disc that will never get played. Most odd, the Orb mix of "Happiest Girl" is included here which is also included in the three disc set from seven years ago. Slightly annoying that the band wouldn't care to notice this, but it is a great mix, so not a huge complaint.

Disc 2 digs a little deeper in finding some older, stranger mixes while still offering up some newer tracks. The Death Mix of "Fly On The Windscreen" was always one of the most odd Depeche mixes, and it's inclusion here is very welcome.

I read the other reviews (two at the time of this writing) and that was it for me. Although I've been expecting this album ever since the band announced it, the Personal Jesus remix they released last month wasn't much impressive to tell you the truth, imho.

Going through the album for the first time though, all three discs, was a very rewarding and interesting experience. It still amazes me what this band can produce by themselves and while collaborating with other artists. It all falls into place so precisely, they almost make it look as if it was easy. It was a real pleasure listening to the Clark and Wilder remixes, it really makes you wonder what would have been, if only. All of the other tracks are very well produced and finished, Leave in Silence it's wonderfully done, as well as some other dance tracks that sound fresh and very well done, Never Let me Down for instance.

As a long-time fan I feel very satisfied with this remixes album, enjoyable from start to finish. It's not perfect, but it's consistent enough to get a four-star rating.

Fans of Depeche Mode have a second collection of remixes for their listening pleasure, and there is much to recommend it. I listened to these three discs pretty much nonstop last summer while on the road going from one work-related location to another, and I quickly developed some preferences that have held up over time.

The first two discs are, as far as I can tell, all remixes that have been released on previous singles. I was already very familiar with most of them. (So, why the purchase? Disc 3, the all-new remixes, which I will get to soon.) If you are a pretty serious Depeche Mode fan and don't have many of the singles, then that is probably a good enough reason by itself to pick up this 3-disc compilation. It's not that every remix is great--some of them are actually kind of awful--but many of these have been, for me anyway, DM staples that I have enjoyed just as much as their album counterparts.

Consider the club thumpers, of which there are quite a few. The Bushwacka mix of "Dream On," the Jacques Lu Cont revision of "A Pain That I'm Used to," and Le Weekend's take on "Ghost" are all cool dance-ready tracks. Most of the slightly weirder stuff works well too: The Orb's smooth reconstruction of "Happiest Girl" is a must, as well as the mixes of "Walking in My Shoes," "Barrel of a Gun," and "In Chains." And Dan the Automator's trip-hop imprint on "Only When I Lose Myself" is very nearly a perfect example of what a re-mix ought to do: change the song not just for the sake of change, but to actually improve on it. These outstanding tracks are good enough to help us forgive the occasional mediocre or outright bad remix (if anyone actually listened to all of the Digitalism remix of "Never Let Me Down" from start to finish, I would be astonished).

This three disc set of Depeche Mode's hits is very fun to listen to. Many of their classic songs are remixed in a great way. This compilation is a high energy dance mix version of some of their songs. The following are some great remixed musical tracks to listen to right away:

Disc 1:

Dream On

Happiest Girl

Walking In My Shoes

Personal Jesus

Disc 2:

Strangelove

I Feel You

Higher Love

Only When I Lose Myself

Disc 3:

I Want It All

A Question of Time

This remixed version of Depeche Mode is great to good if you enjoy any of their songs and/or dance/trance music.
