What frustrates me most about remix EP's are when the included press kit heralds it as nothing short of pious when in reality it is nothing but a collection of loosely mixed presets. I thought the whole purpose of a remix was to instill some of personal creativity of the artists involved in the remix upon the original track. Since when did that include hastily slapping together a few looped presets and calling it a masterpiece? The only saving grace of this EP is the CD-ROM track which contains complete music videos of "Paraffin", "Hoops", and "Tiny Meat" as well as a CD Extra bonus track, photos and artwork. Without this extra information the only useful purpose this EP would provide is that of a coaster for my beverages.
