      a good remix album

      Aqua only had a short-lived career, yet managed to rack up three number onehit singles and gain a small cult following in the UK. Off the back of their album 'Aquarium' came this remix album.

      Who are they:

      Fronted by female vocalist Lene, Rene Dif on rap duties and the instrumentation is handled by Claus and Soren.

      On this album:

      It gets off to a good start with a seventies take on 'Roses Are Red.' They didn't release this track over here, but it is well known in Europe. The remix version keeps the vocals and gives it a disco slant, possibly improving on the original.

      Highlights:

      Head for 'My Oh My [Spyke/Clyde 'N' Eightball Club Mix] ' which takes the medieval sounding original and works it into a house number with a bit more street cred, suddenly making them fashionable! I would then opt for 'Doctor Jones [Antiloop Club Mix]' which takes things harder still. Less of the vocal is used here and the track has a housey vibe with an almost progressive feel going on. It is a long old mix and could have been trimmed by a minute or so. Finally, check out 'Turn Back Time [Love to Infinity Classic Radio Mix] which takes the soulful ballad and turns it into a piano-driven crowd pleaser, a remix that actually works.

      Overall:

      There are twelve remixes on here, some of a surprisingly hard nature which pleased me. Plus there is a catchy bonus track called 'Didn't I' which is Aqua as we know them. Fans will adore this album, plus the artwork is of a high standard.
