High-Energy Party | Posted September 24, 2012
Remixed-Get Movin', the latest release from former American Idol contestant and Christian pop diva Mandisa, is a welcome escape from the standard versions of the songs that are played on your local CCM station. It contains remixes of 5 previously released songs spanning her three previous full length albums.
 
First up on this high-energy EP is the Capital Kings Remix of "Good Morning." This single is from the 2011 release, What If We Were Real. This remix has enough bass and hard hitting drums to wish all your neighbors a good morning as you turn it on high and pull out of your driveway. If you liked the previous version, you will love this even more.
 
Up next is another remix from What If We Were Real. The Movin' Remix of "Stronger" definitely comes with a stronger attitude than the original. The lyrics don't change but the message seems to morph with the new energy added to the song.
 
The Switch Remix of "Only the World" follows on, taking us back to Mandisa's debut album, True Beauty. The remix is a nice change from what is still played on CCM radio. The message holds true of the song. Some of the added effects on the song with the cheering crowds are somewhat overdone and will detract if you're listening closely, but you'll be too busy with it cranked up and bobbing your head.
 
One of the first songs Mandisa ever sang to the general public shows up next. A cover of Mary Mary's "Shackles" takes us back to that night on American Idol when Simon Cowell called her performance "a bit indulgent." For one of the first times on a mainstream television hit a Christian was professing their faith rather than standing behind a mask of performance. This is a great cover of a great song and the remix is a nice flashback. The effect of chains dragging is again a bit much but, I can forgive a bit of indulgence.
 
The album closes with the RawlsCO Latin Remix of "My Deliverer." This of course is from Mandisa's sophomore release Freedom. The Latin vibe is really nice on this and if you don't find yourself doing a little meringue dance while listening than you need to get your pulse checked.
 
Closing Thoughts:
This album is a nice bit of fun. It is a good summary of Mandisa's greatest radio songs and I was actually excited listening to it. I'm not the biggest fan of the first efforts that have almost been overplayed on Christian radio stations, but these remixes put some new life into the songs.

It's Ok... | Posted August 15, 2012
Remix albums are never really creative unless they take the song apart and REbuild them into something great- they didn't do that. They sped up vocals and put it over new beats which is fine but it is what it is: sped up vocals over new beats. Good Morning, which was already a fun song in the first place, amps up the fun. Stronger is annoying with too fast vocals, Shackles is pretty good. 

Wait till it goes on sale for like 1.99 on amazon to buy it.
