Most of these mixes are from the "extended house mix" school of thought. Essentially they are longer versions of the song given a slight tilt towards the dance floor friendliness.
Not that these songs aren't already dance floor friendly, but even the hardest core fan has to admit that the album version of "join in the chant" and "let your body learn" are getting a little moldy.
For the most part these songs could fit right into a DJ set between combichrist and funker vogt songs. They're mostly all pretty hard techno versions that incorporate elements of the original song.
My main criticism is that many of these songs chop up the chorus and verse that it dilutes the sonic impact that the orginals had. In particular, when I first listened to the version of "Shame" on this disc I kept waiting for it to stop "breaking down" and get to the main mix...but alas, it always seemed to building towards something that ultimately never materialized.
I paid full price for this disc and I'm glad I did.
