The companion release to the album of the same if shorter title, Music by Numbers: Rem1xes + R3ject5 gives the neo-synth pop duo Revolution 9 a chance to further play around with their often sweetly enjoyable ditties. The bandmembers handle all remixing duties themselves but there's a nice variety from the earlier versions on display -- if sonically there's a definite palette being worked from, it's still a treat to hear "Computer Girl" turned into an even bouncier song, or "Inside of Me" given a polite but effective techno makeover. One of the album's strongest numbers is "Answer Me (Sound of My Heart)," as perfect a classic pop ballad in the Erasure mode as any circa Wild! or Chorus.
