    you can dance to "Touch" though

    i get that comparison in some ways, that's just not the listening space i put the song in

    i can't stand "touch" and it probably has something to do with my hatred of musical theatre

    give me the sad robot herbie hancock stuff over that any day

    Jaar made some of these tracks even sexier.

    i just love Jaar and his downtempo and his ideas. i wouldn't put his silly remix album next to the real thing. he wouldn't either. he's just using RAM as a springboard to create something totally his own.

    some cool tracks on it for sure.

    i merely retweeted former JDFF boarder and now big time pitchfork journalist Andrew Ryce's thoughts on the matter! but i agree w/ him.

    i feel the same way about the jaar remixes as i do about the daughter cover of "get lucky" which is to say it sorta sucks out the, uh, "essence" or whatever of this music. taking something colourful and playful and turning it monochrome

    I've always been a fan of 70's schock so "Touch" is unsurprisingly the highlight of the album for me. 

    Out of all the edits/remixes/reworks I've heard so far, this is my favorite:

    Everytime I see "Phantom of the Paradise" I misread it as "Phantom of the Park" and I get a little disappointed that the collaboration on "Touch" was with the Yancey Woodchuck guy instead of Gene Simmons.

    Nels Cline plays Nile Rodgers. I'm not a big Wilco fan, but this is pretty fun.

    I think my favorite part of the album is the drumming in Contact. Such over the top wankery that I would hate in almost any other context.

    Went searching for Instant Crush lyrics today and saw a review for the song in the search results. Not surprised to see who the author was after clicking through.

    I feel like I'm not going to be surprised at who the author is after clicking that link.

    I had quite a moment with this album recently (not stoned) and I've changed my mind about it quite a bit.
