AllMusic Review by

Esteemed travel guide and big-city weekly Time Out moves to CD and DVD with a new series entitled THE OTHER SIDE. Each edition contains a DualDisc hosted by a DJ or electronica artist, with each one compiling a mix disc on the CD side, then, on the DVD, narrating a tour through the designated city's hippest restaurants, bars, and clubs.

Electro-pop duo Fischerspooner host THE OTHER SIDE: NEW YORK. The CD side of the DualDisc, not surprisingly, features an eclectic mix that goes from experimental rock (The Fiery Furnaces) to avant performance art (Laurie Anderson), with plenty of electronica-influenced sounds in between (Fischerspooner even sneak in a remix of their own tune "Emerge"). The DVD is informative and well-put-together, giving viewers a crash course in where the cool kids hang out in the Big Apple.
