It's The Fate of the Dance Floor
Posted May 28, 2009
"Time to sweat, time to move, time to get, in the groove."
The added line to Sami D's remix of Party Foul describes this album well. While I would never classify it as surpassing the original Dance or Die, it is well worth you're purchase, as long as you are already well versed.
Despite how much I love this album overall, there are a couple no-no's. The biggest and most important one to stay away from is Alex Suarez from Cobra Starship's remix of How In The World. The song starts lovely, but about mid-song he makes some very bad and annoying choices. In what way? The music doesn't fit. The tune doesn't fit. It is just a complete and horrible mess. There are a couple other songs that have minor problems, such as Radiator not living up to my expectations, but nothing near as bad as this song.
There are definitely quite a bit of highlights in this album, as well. Ghostride the Whip, although it takes you a second listen, is actually quite amazing. I'm cool if Family Force 5 sticks with this style for anything coming up.
Another highlight was Wake The Dead remixed by Soul Glow's wife, Lolipop. Let's just say that it blew my mind, and is definitely worth the listen.
The Smile Future Remix of Share it With Me is the only song that may have actually surpassed the original version, although the Croul-Glo-Activation (Crouton and Soul Glow Activatur) alternative ATL take of Rip it Up was pretty close.
If nothing else, Ghostride the Whip, Wake the Dead, Share it With Me, and the Croul-Glo-Activation remix of Rip it Up make this album well worth the buy, and far outweigh the fails included on this amazing disc. But like I said, make sure you're versed in the original Dance or Die, first.
