What a strange record. I know this may sound redundant for a band like The Residents, but WB:RMX is weird even for their standards.
Back in 1971, when The Residents didn't have a name yet, they recorded a demo tape and sent it to Warner Bros. Records, who rejected the tape because it didn't have the artist's name. It was therefore addressed to "residents" (that's how they got their name). The album was then called The Warner Bros. Album, and it's pretty good itself, although it was never released.
A few years later, The Residents found that the album was circulating the Internet through file sharing. Instead of making an official release of the original album, they decided to do a remix of the whole thing. And then WB:RMX was born.
I gotta say, I'm not really into electronic music like house or techno, but man, The Residents take it to a whole new level. It's not just a remix album... even though it probably sounds and looks like it. But it has a special charm to it, you know? Maybe it's because the songs being remixed are actually interesting and original, and that often makes for good reworked versions.
This album is proof that The Residents are one of the most flexible musicians of all time (even though that may be obvious at this point), and they can create sick beats just as well as everything else. Of course, I wouldn't recommend this album for beginners, but it's definitely one of my favorite Residents works of all.
