Parralox - Metropolism
Electro, Synthpop I don't think I can mention one artist that releases so many singles, EPs and albums like Parralox in such a short period of time. Lately, I feel that the quality of the releases has dropped a bit, so when I got a remix album, which usually is the worst; my expectations dropped to the floor butter down like a toast on a Sunday morning.

But actually, this remix album is really good. Most of the remixes take the original tracks to, not always a better direction, but at least a new interesting one. Even though you will be served electro pop all the way, some tracks are a bit more beaty and harder (hard in the cute electro pop genre that is) while some are almost Robyn-pop-like.

There's no need for me to go through all 15 tracks on this release, rather I would like to pitch my two favourites. The "Rotersand vs Timo Van Laak Rework" of "New Light" got this amazing club oriented beat and the "Code 64 Remix" of "Love Is Enough" got these big sound changes that you can trace back like bread crumbs to their latest release. It's even more dance floor oriented than the Rotersand version. Amii's voice just perfectly together with Code 64's space techno sounds.

To be honest, I prefer this remix album to the original release. That is probably the only time you will ever see me write those lines.
