"From the opening bars of their remix of Nine Inch Nails' 'Even Deeper' (the opening track to this collection) you know you've got an hour or so of the most sumptuous electronica ahead of you. This remix was actually the band's first track together under the Telefon Tel Aviv moniker, dating back to 2000 and all the band's distinctive auditory trademarks were in place even then: the impossibly high fidelity recordings, the vastly complicated rhythmic methodologies and the near superhuman attention to detail. Skip forward to TTV's reworking of Bebel Gilberto's 'All Around' and you're in for another widescreen electronic treat, with all the key elements of the original handled with the utmost delicacy only to be bolstered by a crackling ocean of frazzled electronics. Other standout moments crop up when Apparat's 'Komponent' gets tweaked to futuristic pop perfection and Oliver Nelson's orchestral 'Stolen Moments' gets a subtle circuit bending. A masterclass in electronic production techniques and no mistake." [source]
