Last years 'Gloss Drop' LP didn't really register with me for some reason. I guess it seemed a little patchy with all the personnel issues and what not. Saying that, they still sounded amazing live so perhaps I should revisit the beast. First, lets chunter on about the remix 12” a little. I'm guessing this is the first of a series of 12”s that will eventually be compiled as a CD ala Radiohead's 'King Of Limbs'. The first installment sees the lads get the remix treatment from Gui Boratto and The Field. Boratto's takes 'Wall Street' and gives it a much steadier tempo and delivery. The beats are solid but the melodic element is a little bit coffee table dub for my liking...wouldn't sound out of place on a Massive Attack album or summat like that. The Field's take on 'Sweetie & Shag' takes an equally downbeat approach with minimalist beats and bizarre loops creating a mongy industrial dub-disco feel. Again, very Massive Attack in it's suspension of musical tension. I can feel the track baring down on me. I'm gonna turn it off.
