  • Summary: Health's 2009 album "Get Color" is remixed by such artists as Crystal Castles, Tobacco, CFCF, Javelin, and Little Loud.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. As is their wont, LA noiseniks HEALTH breathe new life into a tired format (again) by handing over their second set Get Color to a few sonic visionaries of their choice.
  2. When these remixes succeed, it's when they take the original song and stay faithful to certain aspects of it that make it distinct, and luckily, the ratio of hits to misses leans heavily in favor of hits.
  3. It lacks the pace of some of HEALTH's very best thrashers, but is executed with such style it's impossible not to be immediately smitten by.
  4. This record is sexy instead of violent, reductive instead of dense. It's uneven, too.
  5. The trendsetting contributors all do their jobs and give the material new shape, by warming up the cold skronk of HEALTH's excellently gnarled 2009 album and transforming it into something more along the lines of "chillwave."
  6. 70
    This Los Angeles quartet augment the scathing buzz-saw noise and artillery percussion of last year's Get Color album with a batch of audaciously free-handed remixes.
  7. Who is doing who a favour? Either way this ["Eat Flesh"] is one of the stand out tracks from this patchy collection.
