Those like me who have a soft spot for the Chill Out album might enjoy this Pitchfork revisiting. What I like about reviews of things I know and like is not the repeating of history I’m already familiar with, but additions to the culture around it – making me rethink, in some aspect, what I thought before.
In this case, it’s the tribute remix that is referenced in the article. I’ve listened to about half of it so far, and there’s a bit towards the middle where it emerges from its paint-by-numbers echoing of the original into something weird and original.
What do you think?
