Absolutely correct on that one.

EDIT: holy crap, Dunwho I swear I hadn't read your post before I posted this. Haha.
Haha nah sure im not surprised... i just was so amazed listening back over it.. was just so solid as an album - perhaps not in the more conventional way - but if you go along for the ride it very quickly starts getting soooo good. Like a good book i guess.

And on the mother Earth thing... i cant say its my favourite clearly, but i would never say it was bad.. not being hard on it, just think its a pity it was at the tail end of such a great fuckin album!

Least: Pretty much any remix that wasnt darren price, adam beyer, or the micronauts. also 010601 (stagger alternate)

Most: Ansum, Vanilla Monkey
Least: Tiny Clicks, back in the fears

OWB era (singles, the bells comp, 020202/Phonestrap)
Most: BB R59 Live Mix
Least: Loads of Birds

just assume i hate mostly every remix

Really? Really really? I've listened to this a grand total of twice, and since then placed it on the shelf to collect dust.
