What good is a music review in the age of the Internet? Is it merely a pointer to what you should download this week? Is it a chance to have your opinions righteously confirmed or flame-baitingly challenged? It's certainly not a venue for meditations on the nature of musical expression, pop culture..

Sorry Noah, but I can't help but disagree. If the only two questions really are what you say they are, there would be pretty much no need for reviews in the first place. Rather, a simple 'Yes/No' tick box system would suffice, and would at least have the quality of collating more than one person's (very limited) appraisal.
Seriously this vinyl is pure gold. It has to be some of the best music I have ever listened to and the review is spot on in saying if you love justice, kavinsky, daft punk, etc, etc. Then this is a MUST buy.
Really, the only thing that let's it down are the remixes imho. I don't think you could ever remix what are pretty much perfect tracks.
"...because music is about expression, not always making a better song.? That's what remixing is about, showing your interpretation or appreciation of a particular song."
