10 days since my last post! I'll figure out something that I can put up, and post a little more regularly pretty soon. I haven't forgotten about this place!
Apropos of nothing, really...You said something before about secretly wishing that the current iteration of Puffy might sound a certain way. The PRMX discs don't get a lot of time in my player, but this comment made me wonder about approaching them with this "alternate Puffy" hypothesis in mind. I'm not sure I found anything I like BETTER, but it was interesting to imagine Puffy in some weird and unfamiliar sonic settings. And a few of the tracks, such as the Strawberry Fields-esque "Your Love Is A Drug" were just surprisingly effective on their own.This only works, of course, with the remixes that take the original vocal track and wed it to a completely different arrangement, but those are the ones I find most listenable anyway. Those remixes that chop the original recording up into tiny DNA fragments and weave a handful of them into a new pattern are usually hard to bear.Anyway, it was an interesting what-if experiment. And I think I'm going to enjoy listening to those two CDs more now.
