was released a few years ago. Splendid primer on the band (it's really
just a compilation of remixes they've done, plus a Reload track just for
the hell of it), but there's considerable overlap with other essential
Global Comm (and related) items. Most significantly, you only get a taste
of the drop-dead lovely _Pentamorous Metamorphosis_ (an album of
Chapterhouse remixes that piss on anything that band ever did- thankfully,
this was just re-pressed) and the somewhat uneven Reload _A Collection of
Short Stories_ disc (on the Creation-associated Infonet, also licensed in
the US). If _Remotion_ floats your boat away on its bilious cloud of
melody-brushed ambience and you haven't heard these other ones, you owe
yourself the pleasure.
I also feel compelled to mention that I never did figure out what the big
deal was with 76:14 (lest I be branded a drooling IDM fanboy).
