Parralox - I Sing The Body Electric
Electro, Synthpop During the first 25 seconds of the track "I Sing The Body Electric" you will be sure you have by mistake put on a remix of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy The Silence". The beat and sounds are almost identical. I wonder if it is meant to be an ode to one of the best bands in the world, or just happened to be so.

In this single/EP I got there where no exclusive tracks, simply get different remixes and versions of earlier mentioned track. It seems like there's been many different versions of the release (some with 8 tracks and some with 13 tracks). Part from the Depeche rip off in the beginning, "I Sing The Body Electric" in its original version (taken from their latest release 'Metropolis') is a pretty decent electro pop track. The problem is that it is quite generic. It's quite emotionless and just plain.

The "Extended" version of the track drives me mad. They have done a cut effect on the vocals in most of the lyrical parts and it reminds me of my CD player in my car when I'm driving on a very bumpy road. Simply annoying. The Angel Theory dance remix is not holding up to the standards (one looping beat is not that hot). Luckily, the "Zynic Remix" is probably the best version of the track, including the original, on this release. They have added a lot of more sounds, making it much more alive and removed some of the generic feeling. Well done. The "Lustobjekt remix" is pretty alright, got some cool sounds, but continue on the set path of the original version, being too plain.

I would have loved to hear the 13 track version with remixes from Code 64 amongst others, because in this 5 track version, it's simply is not good enough.
