Madison Park “Another Yesterday ::: The Remixes”

September 13, 2009

Pff. Madison Park isn’t even Korean. What a waste. So we get eight versions of “Another Yesterday” and a collaboration with GXR called “I Don’t Want to Know.”
“Another Yesterday” would have been huge about 10 years ago, likely gracing the speakers of Nero’s 2000, later called Club Nero. It sounds as good now as it did then, but why would anyone besides me care? Most people see their taste in music mature along with them, so rewarding my stubbornness just ain’t gonna getcha that far.
The Rob Kiraly Remix has a Beatmania feel to it. All the sounds have pinpoint beginnings and ends. I really like this one. It’s good for Robert Miles fans. You remember him. He had that blue album, as opposed to Eiffel 65, who just sucked.
The DJ Costantino Remix takes too long to build. This song is not complex enough to need such infrastructure. The Danny Houghton Remix sounds like a Debbie Gibson mashup. I swear there is a remix of “Electric Youth” that sounds like this.
And now they’re just mocking me. The Raving Donkey Remix wants me to break out the chromium picolinate and mix up some smart drinks. I had these great pants that had pockets so large I could store about 20 individually wrapped glow sticks in three different sizes. There was the weed guy, the E guy and then me. I always had your sticks and in five different colors. Do I really want to be reminded of this? So if you want to be reminded of perhaps your sordid past, I have to admit that the Raving Donkey Remix will strike a chord, or perhaps just a nerve, with you too.
DJ Costantino returns for the “I Don’t Want to Know” remix at the end. This is a better application of his strengths, because the song is much more complex.
Nothing beats a bunch of remixes for my shopping dollar, provided the original song is artfully rendered. It’s a bit hit or miss on this one.
