Review by DjBatman
3 stars out of 4

Six electronic reinterpretations of the classic James Bond theme music by Moby and some top DJs/remixers. The first three versions are most faithful to the original track, even if Moby verges on the chemical beat, while Grooverider (as usual) produces a fine jungle number and Da Bomb perform a more ordinary 4-beat version but it goes well anyway.  Continuing the adventure, you get more and more electronica, but less of the original sources (by the way, all tracks have a couple of cool film samples incorporating the voices of Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery): the first CJ Bolland mix is reminiscent of hardcore techno but still he saves guitars and bass. The journey concludes with the two more deconstructed versions: Dub Pistols present a mixture of electro with some drum'n'bass and later Bolland returns with his "Dubble-Oh Heaven" remix, which seems to exasperate the 4-beat formula and is trapped between underground house and an Underworld rave anthem. In the end, CJ's mixes seem the weakest versions of the track and leave me perplexed. The rest is simply great.
