4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly engrossing November 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Slightly half a year after the release of "Year Zero," (2007) Trent Reznor has released an album of remixes for that album, Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D (Year Zero Remixed, 2007).

Sometimes remix albums can truly suck, but both "Further Down the Spiral" (1995) and "Things Falling Apart" (2000) were good, (especially the former) so one should expect something of quality for a "Year Zero" remix album. But even though I expected Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D to be good, I was surprised by how good I found it.

Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D is a little different from past NIN remix albums in that several other artists were brought in to remix individual songs. Each artist, such as Ladytron, the Faint, Saul Williams, Stephen Morris & Gillian Gilbert etc, put their own unique spin on the songs, so each track sounds pretty unique from the one that preceded it, yet everything works and it makes for a very interesting listen. The result is a remix album that sounds like a bunch of artists screwed around with "Year Zero," warped it, and then put it back together. Because several different artists stylized each song uniquely, Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D is always taking twists and turns, and one never knows where one will wind up. And while some remix songs are rather tedious, every track on Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D is thoroughly engrossing, and I say that as someone who generally doesn't like remixes.

If you own "Year Zero" and like it, Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D is highly recommended as a companion piece. But even if you don't own that album, fans of dance/electronica remixes will get something out of Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D, as these tracks all sound great. Although one can appreciate this CD more fully if one is familiar with "Year Zero."

4.0 out of 5 stars Reznor Remix 2.0 November 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've only listened to it once(got it just a few hours ago), but when I did, it was via an iPod & professional studio headphones (not ear buds) thus allowing me the ability to focus completely on it, even though I was commuting to work on a city bus, lol.

Leading up to this release I listened to my entire NIN library a couple of times (includes nearly every Halo 'cept for certain spendy singles) and I must say that year after year Trent continues to push himself creatively and artistically forward project after project to find new, yet familiar soundscapes to sonically paint on and in. Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D is a different approach to his now usual routine that follows every major studio release he does; the remix album. It's not jaw-droppingly different, but still sounds unique, and I found that to be exciting and inspiring.

His collaboration with Saul Williams on this (and producing Saul's stunning new album "Niggy Tardust") is breathtaking as is breaking out of his normal creative cocoon and jamming with so many different bands and composers then weaving their approaches of these cuts into his own, hitting "puree" in the mixing booth and coming up with something unusual and cool on every track.

This is not meant to be played softly in the background at your next social function (and if you didn't care for "With Teeth" or "Year Zero", stay FAR away from these modern NIN waters, you won't like them/it either).

Instead, for maximum results, I recommend how I enjoyed it so much on my first pass - with a good set of real ear googles, a healthy volume, minimal distractions and the desire to hear Trent surprise all of us once again by being unpredictable and in my opinion, brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 12, 2008
By PsyDawg
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Nine Inch Nails since the beginning. I own every single Halo and I never really got very excited about the remixed albums. I would buy them of course, to keep up with the collection of releases, but I would catch myself thinking, "its good, but its a remix album." So, when this came out it was no surprise to me that I wasn't jumping for joy. Then, I listened to it. This is, in my opinion, the best NIN remix album since Fixed. I never thought I would catch myself saying this, but there are some remixed tracks on this that I like better than the original. I know, crazy. Just give a whirl it is well worth it. Oh, and you are a fan of the "industrial dance" scene, there are a few tracks on that will blow your mind. Highly, highly, highly recommended.

One last thing, the "make your own mix" thing is totally cool. How often do you see an artist present their material in that way and allow the fan to make their own art from it and then get to share it?? HUGE F-ING PROPS to Trent Reznor!!

I don't usually listen to remixes. But I think Year Zero is the best NIN album to date, so I took a chance on Year Zero Remixed. Unlike NIN's other remix albums, where Trent Reznor mostly did his own remixing, the arrangements here are all by other artists (though some of them are closely associated with NIN, like Saul Williams or Alessandro Cortini's Modwheelmood). The results are about as good as you could hope for -- pretty uneven, but with a few startlingly good parts.

The biggest show-stopper is Ladytron's version of "The Beginning Of The End." They take what was already Reznor's most danceable song since "Closer," and make it even more danceable. But the remix is just as gloriously doom-laden as the original, with even deeper bass, on echoing keyboards rather than guitar. Additional keyboards in the second half add a lot of ominous atmosphere. The guitar solo in the original is worked into the end of the remix, and serves as a good crescendo. It's the rare case of an alternate version that is significantly different from the original, but is every bit as good. It's also a lot better than most of Ladytron's own work.

Another attraction is Saul Williams' revision of "Survivalism." The original version was aggressive, but I always found it kind of plodding.
