Year Zero Remixed, AKA Y3R0Z3R0R3M1X3D, is the first remix album from Nine Inch Nails to really reinvent the music. As soon as you put the disc in, you hear Saul Williams spitting anti-political rhymes to the music of HYPERPOWER!. Right after, is an amazing remix of The Great Destroyer (modwheelmood) which is much calmer then the original. Other highlights:
*Capitol G (Epworth Phones) - Dropping of bombs never sounded so good...
*Survivalism (Saul Williams) - Possibly the only remix of the song that's actually on-time. Fun to sing along with. :D
*Meet Your Master (The Faint)
*Another Version of the Truth (Kronos & Enrique Gonzalez Müller) - An eery string quartet remix that plays perfectly with the apocalypse.
DOWNER: The Me, I'm Not remix is a 14 minute long instrumental. It is mind numbing and repeatitive as F***. I have no idea how it made the album, but what do I know.
Overall, it is an amazing album. Well worth the price tag.
Nin has a long history of putting out a full length album sparingly an then putting out several remix albums thereafter. Usualy the remix albums would only appeal to a true hardcore nin fan and sound like noise to everyone else. from it's title Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D i excpected this cd to follow suite and i was pleasently surprised. Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D Is more remix and less distortion than i was expecting, with versions of songs that i like better than the original. If you liked with teeth and year 0 you will love Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D.
This is a really cool and now very affordable release. On the on hand you get a new remixed CD and on the other side you get a DVD (they are separate/not double sided) of the music where you are able to remix it all your self and share it with others on the nin.com or remix sites. You never know, it could give you 15 minutes of fame. One of the people on this release was someone who did his own remix, uploaded it and was chosen to be on it. With nin no longer on a label I'm sure we'll be seeing all kinds of new and cutting edge things now they are in charge of their own music. They are even giving away CDs and DVDs of music and concerts. It's a great time to be a fan of this amazing band even though they stopped touring.
If you know Nine Inch Nails you also know it has realeased several remix albuns. This is one is quite different from its predecessors. It sounds like music. Don't get me wrong, I love almost everything NIN has ever put out, but this one will appeal to everyone who likes NIN, not only hardcore fans, which is the case of other remix albuns such as Fixed and Further Down the Spiral.
A must-have for Nine Inch Nails fans. More for the NIN complete-ist than the casual fan who might be better served by buying the regular "Year Zero" album.
For anyone who likes both NIN and industrial DJ rmixes, "Year One Remixed" is a must-listen. Enjoy!
