8/10 Mike Staff review, 21 May 2014
Bestial Mouths' self-titled album from last year was a gritty and confrontational bit of electronic post-punk, and it's up for the remix treatment on this LP here, with the likes of Dalhous and Soft Metals weighing in with a total of seven reinventions.   It's a well sequenced collection which focuses on the aspects of the album I like most, particularly the hypnotic industrial violence of the rhythms and cold dystopian bleakness of the churning melodies. The vocals play a far less prominent role here, buried in the mix when they are present - the Greenlander remix of 'Earth' rendering them into a blurred Lydia Lunch babble in the middle distance, while elsewhere they're chopped into fragments or omitted.   The majority of the record has a churning electro-industrial techno kind of feel but the closing mix from Dalhous changes tack magnificently with some crumbling Fennesz-esque distorto-drones and muddy, indistinct tufts of whispered S ND Y P RL RS-ish melody in a truly inspired bit of cosmic sound design that's droning my face off and worth the price of admission alone.   It's a strong compilation all round, and works well as a stand-alone album, which I find is a rare thing with remix LPs since they can tend to be a bit of a pick'n'mix of contrasting styles. More hypnotic and less exhausting than the sensory overload of the originals.
