Happy End of You Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Although it doesn't offer any radically new interpretations, Flow Hyphenated Drop (Happy End of the World Remixes) is a thoroughly entertaining remix album. All of the cuts were originally on Pizzicato Five's 1997 album The Happy End of World, a typically stylish and enjoyable Pizzicato album, much like Flow Hyphenated Drop itself. The superstar remixers accentuate the parts of the band they love -- in St. Etienne's hands, for instance, the band becomes a near-surrealistic kitsch celebration. The result is a bit of a kaleidoscope, offering different perspectives of Pizzicato Five that all lead back to the same picture. Still, it's worthwhile for dedicated fans.
