Pole Schiemann was here for only a couple of mixes, with Claessen. This one fulgurates.

Madness (I Prefer This Mix)

Beginning at 4:00, this is the ascension of Claessen. His misstepful, blundering debut Cold Front is wiped away in just a minute & a half of this sweet euphony strung like honey from Bart & Dave's efforts. Most of this is just electrotrash. Good electrotrash, though not as welcome as the tune, which reappears at 6:34 & recedes at 7:16. The small afterplay is just that, minuscule, & reminds of the thermospheric heights the tune climbs to. This standout of Volume 6 merited the remixes.

Madness (I Prefer That Mix)

Which is not what this is. This is the worst idea for a mix cogitable. The OM copied & pasted, without any tune whatsoever. Astounding.

Madness (Super8 & Tab Remix)

The synopsis[1] was written by a drunk insomniac, which is fitting for this remix. The timing is off by 100%, & the caliginosity is unfavourably distributed; charged at the wrong places. It's even worse than what Schiemann & Claessen did to Elektra, because now it's unlistenable.

Madness (Nitrous Oxide Remix)

This is a genuine remix. From the 2011 decennial celebrations, this is nonetheless detestable. Without bringing anything original, he focuses on the fuliginosity, spotlighting the melancholia without stunning. Another squandering of time.

Madness (Nitrous Oxide Alternative Mix)

& still not as profligate as this! Released in Ibiza 2011, this is minimally reworked. It's pathetically & nanoscopically altered. There is no substantive difference. Don't pay attention to this.
