2 stars Sometimes looking at a cover art gives you an idea of its content. This affirmation is rather true for KINGSTON WALL's studio albums, this time makes no exception either. "Freakout Remixes" is a tribute compilation composed of techno/trance remixes of the band's songs, made by electronic finnish artists.

The big beat remix of "And I Hear You Call" is a bit lazy and does not bring much novelty to the original song. "We Cannot Move" is easily the worst passage of the record. It mainly consists in trance pulses over a speeded up version of the original track. The effect sounds quite ridiculous. "I'm Not the One" has an old-school breakdance beat. The song is just barely recognizable but the music itself is not too bad.

The ambient "With My Mind" is surprisingly nice. Its modern electro/hip-hop beat and hazy atmosphere results in a cool trip-hop remix. The best track of this compilation. On the contrary, "Used to Feel Before - Incoming" is just another irritating trance remix. "Palékastro" is a rather strange messy collage that goes in many directions. Some parts of the original song can be heard, but the overall is quite uneven.

As most people could have expected, "Freakout Remixes" won't please KINGSTON WALL lovers. However, a few remixes should be appreciated by 90's electronic music fans.
