Duncan Sheik may not be a prime candidate for remixes but his 2011 reimagining of classic new wave hits begged for a bit of color. And so, 2012's Covers 80s Remixed, where the synth-heavy songs he stripped of synths, once again have electronics in the mix. Here, the songs sound a bit more classically "80s" than they did on the original album, but the reflective tone of Sheik's rearrangements haven't been lost. This is still quiet and slow, a tasteful dose of nostalgia that appeals to Gen-X'ers who have memories of Tears for Fears, Japan, Howard Jones, and Love Rockets but haven't listened to them in years. In this context, with added keyboards, they feel even more like their memories than they did before. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
