    Refreshingly unpredictable, this is a blueprint for what remix albums should aspire to.

    Good Morning to the Night is a truly remarkable record, one that will repay your deep and repeated listening tenfold. [Aug 2012, p.99]

    The results range from danceable ('Phoenix', 'Sad') to unnerving ('Telegraph To The Afterlife', 'Sixty') and give off an atmosphere of ghostly melancholy that subtly subverts Elton's reputation as a cosy British institution.

    Even if it's not necessarily the kind of music that would make it into regular rotation, it's inventive and fun, which is more than enough for a project like this.
