Sequel Remix Album On 180g Vinyl Double LP!
Half-Speed Mastered Edition! 16 Brand New Remixes by Robert Smith!

TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics in the December 2018 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

The 2018 remix album, "Torn Down: Mixed Up Extras 2018" serves as a sequel to the Cure's 1990 remix album "Mixed Up".

The album features 16 remixes by Robert Smith of songs he chose from each album in chronological order.

Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, few were as enduring and popular as the Cure. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith (born April 21, 1959), the band became notorious for its slow, gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance, a public image that often hid the diversity of the Cure's music. At the outset, the Cure played jagged, edgy pop songs before slowly evolving into a more textured outfit. As one of the bands that laid the seeds for goth rock, the group created towering layers of guitars and synthesizers, but by the time goth caught on in the mid-'80s, the Cure had moved away from the genre. By the end of the '80s, the band had crossed over into the mainstream not only in its native England, but also in the United States and in various parts of Europe. The Cure remained a popular concert draw and reliable record-seller throughout the '90s, and their influence could be heard clearly on scores of new bands during the new millennium, including many that had little to do with Goth.

"...Smith has... remastered Mixed Up..."Three Imaginary Boys (Help Me Mix 2018)" plays two-channel ping-pong with propulsive percussion and warbling twangy guitars, and "Lost (Found Mix 2018)" gets stripped down to a piano-driven painfest. Mixed Up is a fine funhouse mirror showing all the ways these Lovecats kept getting bigger and sleeker, in all the right ways" - Mike Mettler, The Absolute Sound, December 2018
