Duncan Sheik may not be a prime candidate for remixes but his 2011 reimagining of classic new wave hits begged for a bit of color. And so, 2012's Covers 80s Remixed, where the synth-heavy songs he stripped of synths, once again have electronics in the mix. Here, the songs sound a bit more classically "80s" than they did on the original album, but the reflective tone of Sheik's rearrangements haven't been lost. This is still quiet and slow, a tasteful dose of nostalgia that appeals to Gen-X'ers who have memories of Tears for Fears, Japan, Howard Jones, and Love & Rockets but haven't listened to them in years. In this context, with added keyboards, they feel even more like their memories than they did before.
