Rezension

Since its 1987 debut, nearly every album by the Japanese electro-pop duo Pizzicato Five has spawned at least one EP of often radically different remixes and remakes of the album's songs. Pizzicato Five's first U.S. release, the compilation MADE IN USA, is no different, but rather than simply combine some of the earlier remixes of the album's songs, P5 mastermind Yasuharu Konishi commissioned new reworkings of the songs for the ironically-titled four-song EP QUICKIE. Three songs are reprised from MADE IN USA, with the album's first single, "Magic Carpet Ride," redone twice, an excellent radio-ready shortened version which makes plain the song's debt to the sophisticated '70s soul of Gamble and Huff or Barry White and a dreamier mostly instrumental take. The other two tracks are more radically redesigned, adding English-language raps and entirely new instrumental parts. Much more so than most remix EPs, QUICKIE stands on its own merits.
