Nostrophil Remixes Electro, Ambient Nostromo 7 Josh reviewed Nostromo 7's latest studio album 'Cinemind' in March this year. In that very review here on the site, Intrendent posted a comment that the band was looking for remixes from that particular album. What they where needed for? Well, here?s the result, the remix album 'Nostrophil Remixes'. By now, you ought to know my standing on remix albums and I don't think that this album is a fair way for me to make up my mind for Nostromo 7 as a band. When the remixes stay true to the Avant-Garde sound, like in the amazing first track "Melt Away (Noonatac Remix)" or "Second Face (Tripes Remix)", the result is nothing less than pure greatness. But, and here's the big epic but you have been waiting for (I like big buts and I cannot lie?), when you let artists use the remix kit and make it however they want it without any guidelines, the result become somewhat of a splatter effect. Did you see the episode of Mythbusters when they tested to paint a room with a bucket of paint and dynamite? The result here is quite similar, ending up on every wall of the electronic genre, everything from industrial to ambient. Splattered being one problem, the other is that I can't say I feel the remixes to be that interesting nor well performed, this with exceptions of course, like the ode to Kraftwerk in "Silence (Henry's Spring Remix)" . What this remix album has accomplished though is an urge for me to listen to Nostromo 7 when they are in their true original state to see what the band is able to bring to the table when the dirty fingers haven't poked on all the delicious goodies. That is exactly what I'm going to do now. 350
