 This is a pretty sensible review overall, but i didn't understand why you slammed the diplo remix twice without actually telling us why you didn't like the song. I wondered why you thought diplo was "particularly relevant," but then didn't like his remix work. Are you just not a fan of half tempo ska samples?

 "Why does the tracklist remain unchanged?" Consider the case of Silent Alarm Remixed. Though some mixes failed (I'm looking at you, Ladytron), the record was a better whole. It was more consistent, and guess what? A record with the artists just choosing what to remix - like, say, Romance Bloody Romance - was released earlier this year, and it basically failed completely. I think what I'm trying to say is, the tracklist remained the same because he had each song remixed. Let's face it, nobody wants to hear four mixes of "Black Tambourine" and seven mixes of "Girl."
