Many of these songs were perfect as they were but a few were actually improved upon and others shouldn't have been tampered with.

Great alt. disc

This is a very enjoyable remix album, though it is not as good as the original album "The Mating Game". This in part is due to the original album feeling more solid as a package than this set. I would recommend getting the original first unlike other remix projects where the new variations can stand alone (like the fantastic Verve Remixed series). Still, this is solid effort, and you've got to appreciate the use of a "1 each" remix method rather than the typical 3+ remixes of the singles that often dominate remix albums.

They Say All Music Guide

The appeal of Bitter:Sweet’s debut album lay not only in the quality of the singing and the songwriting, but also in the duo’s promiscuous approach to musical styles — a little bit of jungle here, a little bit of trip-hop there, a few touches of torch song and lounge lizardry in between. As you might expect, the remix album is the same thing only different. Nicola Conte gives the sweetly romantic “Heaven” a swaying Brazilian beat; Blackbird’s take on “Overdue” is sharply funky and gently dubbed-up; JAB’s mix of “Our Remains” nicely incorporates turntablism, breakbeats, and the rapping of Menez One. But throughout the album the chief attraction remains Shana Halligan’s soft but crystal-clear voice — unlike many of her genre colleagues, she never falls back on lazy gimmicks, but invests her vocal choices with conscious intelligence. Notice how she moves subtly between a Betty Boop torchiness and a darker, throatier tone on “Take 2 Blue,” and how her languid, breathy delivery cuts through the Fort Knox Five’s jerky, busy remix of “Salty Air.” Not every track is perfect (Thievery Corporation’s mix of “Bittersweet Faith” is pleasant and somewhat funky, but not very distinctive), but most are excellent. Highly recommended. – Rick Anderson
