Korai Öröm - "Reflected Remixes"
(Periferic Records Köra007)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: September 2003
This is the second remix CD of Korai Öröm music. This time 3 members of the band are highly involved and even provide some remixes. I love this bands albums-CDs and have not always been much of a fan of remixes, as most are not very successful. The CD features remixes by some of the biggest names in the Hungarian underground. While I think this one better than the previous remix CD, called Recycled, there are very few of the songs that stand up to the originals. While I understand that these remix CDs can provide a ground to cross fertilize the dance music field with the ethnic psychedelic rock music field, the fan of the real bands music might be disappointed. The two remixes by Emil and Dr. Jeryll, were highlights for me but most of the others I would really prefer to hear the originals. If you are a hardcore fan and/or collector, you should try to pick this up.
