10. Transfer Afffection (Extended Remix)


On their website a special boxset is available which includes:
The Inflight Main CD (Extended Versions of the bands hits), 2) Inflight Instrumental CD, 3) CD Single of 'Wishing' with 7 new versions, 4) An Exclusive download of 10 remixes. 5) Band sticker and 6) Signed postcard from all four band members.

The website lists the other acts under this stable and they include the re-recordings of Wang Chung and Visage so I think we can assume these are also re-recordings. They seem to specialise in getting their acts to do orchestral albums, and AFOS have already done that.

I wouldn't trust that site about where they ship from. I was reading about someone who bough that recent Wang Chung box set which they thought was coming from London but instead came from New York so they got hit with an £18 import duty charge. Apart from that they don't give track listings on their website.

Should simply be extended versions of the recent re-recordings for the 'Ascension' boxset - all 10 are featured as new recordings on the 'Aurora Borealis' Greatest Hits cd in the boxset.
They are milking the material quite well :D

huh? while most of them were on there, i think they won't have any orchestral parts.

so they should be different, we'll see.

Of course you wouldn't have a problem as you don't get hit with import duty buying stuff from abroad whereas people in the UK get royally fucked if we spend over £16 on something coming from North America or Japan and it will probably get worse if this brexit crap goes through.

they have a number for phone orders, and can clear that up perhaps about shipping costs,
and where they're sending it from.

also, doesn't the shipping show up in the cart when you check out.

unless these are extra taxes on top of that.

8:52 08 A Flock Of Seagulls - Man Made (Extended Instrumental)
7:20 09 A Flock Of Seagulls - Transfer Affection (Extended Instrumental)
===========================================================================
DNA is an instrumental, so its not included again on the 2nd cd

overview
---------
so we're dealing with tracks that are 37,36, and 35 years old.
thats right - 3 and half decades and older.

does anyone remember them. does anyone care.

well, apparently, the guy from august day did, and hired
the band to do all those orchestral, and remade versions.

so you got - orchestral, instrumental, orchestra only, and remade versions.

these remix versions take the remade versions, and the instrumentals to
make new extended and extended instrumentals versions.

not exactly new or exciting is it.

usually less is more, and i'm still a fan of the original versions
and mixes. but they did pick some songs that weren't singles and
songs that weren't extended, so thats good.

----------------------------------------------------

the tracks are originally from the following
---------------------------------------------

flock of seagulls (1982)
------------------------
Modern Love Is Automatic (Extended Remix) - very well done, good instruments
I Ran (So Far Away) (Extended Remix) - same as on single - decent
Space Age Love Song (Extended Version) - same as on single - good, but could still use work
DNA (Extended Remix) - starts off poorly, but picks up later, not as much energy as the original
Man Made (Extended Remix) - another slow tempo song, drags on too long

listen (1983)
-------------
Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You) (Extended Remix) - same as on single - excellent, epic
Nightmares (Extended Remix) - very downbeat, and minimal, an ok song, drags on a bit, weird vocals
Transfer Affection (Extended Remix) - a very chill version, very soft vocals, average
Electrics (Extended Remix) - excellent upbeat, and very well done, a hilight here

story of a young heart (1984)
------------------------------
The More You Live The More You Love (Extended Remix) - good, a rather mellow remix, compared
to the radical original remix


==============
overall - the vocals aren't as good as the originals, they didn't process them
correctly, and they aren't mixed right

instruments - guitars are excellent, bass is good

keyboards and synths - pretty weak overall, and nowhere as good as the originals

tempo and timing - match the originals pretty closely


this is a release thats for the hardcore collector, if you wanted new
or different mixes, get the singles, you're better off.

for the price they're asking, even with the 'wishing' remixes (which are decent)
its still not worth it.

i would rate it 3/5 for doing some original mixes.
2.5 /5 for the instrumentals.
