5.0 out of 5 stars The American Remixes, April 29, 2003
This review is from: American Life (Audio CD)
The song that has received so many comments in the past month or so finally appears in its remixed form. And here, the song is transformed into 5 different versions.

Version 1: Missy's collaboration with Madonna here is actually a shrewd attempt at winning urban airplay. Though not exceptionally spectacular, it is nontheless a funky remix with Missy Elliott's rapping and a delightful Tweet on background vocals. The original song is stirpped of its electro coat and laced with hip beats and a funky bassline. It's really a Madonna exclusive as Missy puts it.

Version 2: Oakenfold's remix of the song is certainly one of his best for Madonna. In fact, the remix has made the song more radio-friendly. It's Oakenfold at his mid-tempo best, adding to the song some stronger beats and more cohesion to the verses and the chorus. Slick!

Version 3: Felix Da Housecat's remix is simply the best on this CD maxi-single. Even better than his haloween sounding remix of Die Another Day, the DJ injected some dark electro-funk to the song and made it sound almost like what The Smashing Pumpkins would have done before. Totally smashing!

Version 4/5: Basically, the 2 parts, at nearly 20 minutes, see Rahoufer at his worst on Part 1 and his best on Part 2. Part 1 is just a nonsensical mix of trance beats that made no sense of the song at all. Part 2 is better, more anthem-like with a stomping feel.

The last track of the CD is Richard Vission's excellent remix of Die Another Day which was previously unreleased, but it is really the best of the DAD remixes. The James Bond theme is instantly turned into a club track that will bring the house down in no time.

Overall, this is a very good CD-maxi single.
