AllMusic Review by

Originally known for dark progressive house releases, Denmark-based producer Anders Trentemøller has since bristled at the idea of being pigeonholed in just one genre, taking a "music is music" stance and damning those who come to his releases with certain expectations. Fair enough: few have earned this stance as well as the skilled and diverse producer, but it's worth noting that Lost Reworks takes his 2013 album Lost to an even less dancey place. The pithy way to put it is that Lost Reworks remixes Lost into a mid-era New Order album -- what with all the six-string, Peter Hook-like basslines, and guitars over drum machines stuff -- save the opening remix of "River of Life," which is dark and lean enough to be mistaken for Gary Numan. There are seven tracks in total, with two songs repeating, and while those who want the good old days of Deep Dish- and Underworld-sounding club cuts would do well to avoid the EP, fans who fell hard for Lost will welcome these worthy, rocky expansions.
