TRANCE vs original

Post by bertblotto »

So, I'm sure this has already been discussed, but I'm new here!
Which of the TRNACE remixes do you think measure close to the originals, and which don't exist, but should?

I love most of the WISH YOU WERE HERE Trance Remix. That is one album that really lends itself to trance music. My runner up is Meddle, another interesting interpretation.

Technically, they're ROIOs, but it's rumored very widely that they're done by The Orb.
Each album is completely remixed, with the track listings kept intact. The songs range widely in length, however. They are radical interpretations, and NOT for the Floyd purist.

Just out of interest, what does ROio stand for?

wheres the "None, Trance and Remixes are made by people who can't write their own music or play REAL instruments and feel the need to butcher other people's songs" option?

I've heard some of these tracks, and they're not very good. And I don't think they were made by The Orb, since The Orb are actually a decent ambient "band", and if they'd made these, then they would certainly be a lot better.

Wow, such anger!
I want to go on record as saying that I prefer the original albums to the TRANCES. That said, I feel that the Pink Floyd cover songs/albums are a mixed bag, but sometimes produce some interesting interpretations, if you're willing to open your mind a little.
Luther Wright and The Wrongs' cover of the WALL album is quite good if you can get the joke and appreciate it for what it is. Nobody's claiming it's better than the original.

Anyway, let's keep this thread going without the hate if possible!
