3 stars Not as bad as the ProgArchive rating !

I purchased this album thinking it was a Marillion release rather than a remix album and before having heard the orignal This Strange Engine.

The overall result is listenable. Essentially, the vocal lines have been kept which avoids some of the repetition of dance remixes. In fact most of the mixes have a more ambient or electronica feel rather than dance and is something you can listen to in the background.

Fifty percent of ProgArchive reviewers have given this a 1 star rating which is the lowest mark available in the archives. Is it really that bad? No!

Marillion have given their support to this project and the result has stretched the definition of progressive music. And of course some of the electronic beats used in dance have come directly from progressive music.

In terms of ProgArchive ratings, I would consider it as a good attempt but non-essential. 2.5 stars

KeepItDark | 3/5 |
