Album Review

The San Francisco trio Numbers let its 2002 album, Life, go through the Tigerbeat6 remix paddy wagon, with a predictable few great tracks, a handful of passable attempts, and a few total missteps. This album buds off with indie hip-hop impresario Gold Chains doing a classic, somewhat underwhelming skit. Stars as Eyes detours from the decided dance orientation of the album to use Indra Dunis' Tortoise-style drums and ambient noise not unlike Jim O'Rourke's more esoteric compositions ("I Have Headache This Big," a remix of the original "I'm Shy").

Luckily, this overthought is kept on low, allowing Death to be more of a remix album in the classic sense than a display of the much-overused deconstruction techniques that many of these remixers have on their resumés.
