Though dozens of remix albums hit the racks in the late-'90s, the great majority came to fruition as a result of major-label campaigns as a great way to attract prestige (and perhaps even a bit of money). Undoubtedly the most obscure act to get the remix treatment, forgotten '80s synth-popsters Telex received their due as a result of genuine enthusiasm regarding a band's catalogue by a host of electronic producers. Considering that the figures who lined up for this project -- Glenn Underground, Carl Craig, Shake, I:Cube, Dr. Rockit, Ian O'Brien, Buckfunk 3000 among others -- are all at the top of their game, I Don't Like Music (Remixes) is a stellar collection of Telex classics given the quintessentially post-modern touch.
