13 Tracks, 13 Remixes

8 Mar 2010124
Artificial Horizon, the limited edition CD produced for subscribers to U2.com, is now released.

Running to 60 minutes, this exclusive CD features 13 tracks remixed by some of the world's leading DJs and producers. Including three never-before released tracks and two with very restricted previous release, here's a couple of lines from an early review by the editors at Mixmag:

'World beat flavour takes the song to totally different place.' (Elevation (Influx Mix) ); 'Makes U2 sound like another band entirely' (City Of Blinding Lights (Hot Chip Remix).

But what do you think ? Stand-out track? Most surprising mix? Song that sounds least like U2? Potential summer of 2010 dance-floor hit?

awesome music, glitchy CD
Hi guys, Massive fan and I love the disk, already going to be my top driving soundtrack, and after catching U2360 in Foxboro, Mass., it was great to hear the live dance version of I'll Go Crazy again! One problem: my CD won't stop skipping on the last two tracks, which bums me out cuz the version of Staring at the Sun at the end is a total revelation. Aside from that, A+!

What a compilation!
Could the remix of Magnificent be U2's best remixed track ever? It's just so additive, I can't stop listening to it. Also, Elevation remix is fantastic (which by the way is the track that was played on the PA as the band walked onstage for the U2 Go Home concert). You also gotta love David Holmes raw and basic sonicscape on Beautiful Day.

Artificial Horizon Disk
I received the new Artificial Horizon disk over the weekend and absolutely love it. I saw the band twice on the North American tour in 2009 and fell in love with the "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" track and was delighted to hear it on the new disk. I've been listening to it over and over. It's awesome. Thank you.

Wow this is awesome!
Thanks, did not know I'd be getting this, thanks so much. Was funny trying to add it to my windows media player, it kept saying it couldn't find the album info, well duh! Finally got them all in. Stand out track? MAGNIFICENT! Play it when I see you in Denver, Chicago, and Philly, love it. Dance tune? EL E VA TION. Woo hooo,, woo hoooo, lol. :) I belly dance, and can move to this. The instrumental song was the most surprising, and none of them did not sound like you. That's it. See you in June :)

Wonderful Gift
Thanks so much for this wonderful unexpected gift!!! It's an awesome CD and each song has its own unique blend which is what makes it so awesome. Thank you again and looking forward to seeing you again this coming July!!! God bless you.

Beyond my expectations....
U2's remixes are truly great! They bring you into a total new dimension... Can't choose which one is the best. But the Elevation Influx mix has already been one of my favourites for years....!

Amazing... thank you!!!
I have been searching for a copy of the remix of "I'll Go Crazy..." - the live version from the tour- thought it was incredible!!! An amazing remix is on this Remix CD - an indescribable surprise with great gratitude! The entire album is amazing... thank you, U2 and U2.com! As others have said, I too have tried to collect all U2's remix collections; I have whatever I can get my hands on here in The States via CD/DVD, I-tunes, and U2.com.Thank you and God bless!

I love going CRAZY!!!
Oh my!!! send chills up and down my spine in remembers of the show(LasVegas, baby!!!) for the live track. Phenomenal piece. Thank you for adding it to this CD and thank you to Bono, the Edge, Adam and Larry for all the "gifts" over the years.

sorry guys
Sorry guys, I hate it. A lot. Enough with force-feeding us all this techno stuff. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the free CD for the fans; I've absolutely loved all the previous ones. I just feel like they're not learning from their mistakes. I love U2 the rockband. Not a bunch of electro-DJ's who just throw it all on robot beats. So let down.

Crazy . . .
I love the I'm Going to Go Crazy . . " remix. The band performing it in concert was definitely the highlight of my concert experience. Everyone was really into. More of the same please, fellas . . .

THANKS U2 FINALLY GOT IT !!!! I love it this whole exclusive CD, it have great songs and great remixes, and specially the treat that was the new mix of the "I'll Go Crazy if I don't go Crazy Tonight" that is the u2360 tour version, is completely awesome, and everytime i hear it, i remember the one of the best parts of the ROSE BOWL concert back in Octuber, outstanding, incredible, love it, thanks U2 hope can see them again on june. Hello all U2 fans out there, take care.

Artificial Horizon
I was excited to receive my new cd....however, I was sadly disappointed in the album. I have been a fan since the early '80s and what I loved most about the music was their unique style....and that is what I still love about them. I have been a faithful fan for more than 25 years. I haven't always appreciated everything they have produced...but that is my personal preference. I do not like techno music and that is the part that disappointed me in the album. I love the songs and who they are and what they believe in...I just can't get into the techno. I will continue to remain a loyal fan and look forward to the going to the concert once again in the summer...but I wouldn't be an honest fan if I didn't share my honest thoughts with you. I love the music that sets them apart from all the rest....that is what makes them U2 and that is what makes them my favourite band of all times. :)

Surprisingly good...
I'n not usually a fan of remixes... but I'm very pleased with this CD! The song choices are wonderful and the newer remixes are very fresh and extremely enjoyable to listen to! Great packaging too! Thank you!
Again427
still awesome
I had the majority of these tracks already but the four I did not have are well worth the wait! The four i did not have were: Beautiful Day, City of Blinding Lights, I'll go Crazy, and GYOB (fish out of water mix).
cabral255
best track
Track 6 is outstanding

Happy Early St. Patrick's Day
AHHHH, received mine today and what a gift... thanks for the early St. Patrick's Day present - it is music to my (h)ears. I miss the boys so much and this was just what I needed - it got my Irish up. From South of Boston, Robin.

Awesome CD

Love it. Still not crazy about Crazy
Majority of these re-mixes are really terrific. I love the new energy and different approaches. I still think the re-mix of "I'll Go Crazy ..." was a buzz kill at the BC show. Bits and pieces of it resonate better on the album, but overall I don't think it improves upon the original which I think has a lot more authentic energy and passion. Having said that, I'm truly grateful to the band for doing these remix albums as it offers all of us a chance to enjoy the music in completely different ways. Each tune is a little gift from the Almighty.

I LOVE IT!!
This remix album is great: a wonderful addition to my other U2 remix CDs. Good job guys!! Thanks for not feeding us the remixes we already have! I LOVE the Magnificant Falke Radio Mix( definitely the best remix out there), and of course 'Crazy'....and everything else. This is a great treat for us fans. It's in my iPod so I can play it at work!! Thank you so much..
