Bear In Heaven - Beast Rest Forth Mouth: Remixed

Earlier this year Bear In Heaven released the brilliantly received Beast Rest Forth Mouth, an album which improved every facet of the band's sound and coupled it with great songs. So why then you’d want to tar it by remixing it is anyone's idea but we’ll give it a chance. Each song of the album is remixed by someone different and kicking things off is one of the better tracks on the collection. ‘Beast In Peace’ is given some lush female vocals and keeps all the great melodies that were in the original, yet giving it a thump which it never knew it possessed. The Field gives ‘Ultimate Satisfaction’ a bit of fuzz around the edges and his trademark throb but fails to create anything of any real interest, while High Places airy take on ‘Drug A Wheel’ gives it that krautrock repetition which the band are apparently a fan of. Ultimately this is a respectable attempt at giving these songs a whole new perspective; in the end though, nothing matches up to the original.
