Originally released in Japan and then spreading out to other territories as her international star rose, Remix is precisely what it claims: remixed versions of Lady Gaga
hits. At 17 tracks it borders on overkill, but that’s fitting for Gaga
, who has made excessiveness her raison d’être
, and some of the included remixes are quite good, particularly when they come from either veterans of this game (Pet Shop Boys
) or something approaching the latest fashion (Space Cowboy
). That this is not an essential addition to Gaga
’s canon goes without saying -- it is not as sharp and cohesive as You Can Dance, its patchwork nature too evident -- but there’s glitz and glamour to enjoy here…perhaps not in as great a number as Fame or Fame Monster, but enough to please those who have worn out either already.
