AllMusic Review by

In 2006, the U.K. electronica act Lamb (singer Louise Rhodes and musical mastermind Andrew Barlow) followed up its '04 retrospective and BACK TO MINE mix with yet another collection. Essentially a companion piece to BEST KEPT SECRETS, the two-disc REMIXED features the duo's IDM contemporaries offering their takes on some of Lamb's finest songs. While some tunes are interpreted multiple times, no rendition sounds the same--Mr. Scruff's dreamy version of "Gold," for example, is nothing like Autechre's stuttering, abstract reworking of the same track. Although some remixes downplay Rhodes's emotive vocals, they all bring out fascinating aspects of Barlow's trip-hop-oriented compositions.
