Thievery Corporation Versions
- Words: J. David Marston
- Label: ESL
Flexing their experience and skill, Thievery Corporation's Versions is a dubbed-out remix album that comes out swinging. The list of artists reads like an iPod set on shuffle: Transglobal Underground, Anoushka Shankar, Norah Jones, Nouvelle Vague, and Sarah McLachlan are all tackled. Surprisingly, there's hardly a gimmicky mix to be found here. Bebel Gilberto's "Cada Beijo" retains elements that made the original shine, yet the song is deconstructed with a thoughtfulness that pays homage to the original-like most of the album. Besides The Doors' "Strange Days" remix, which sounds forced and tacky, the majority of the project is extremely well-tailored.
