What's yor thoughts on remix albums?

I'm sitting here listening to 9th Wonder's rendition of Jay-Z's American Gangster, I think the production isn't as top notch (and I love 9th) but it does make the lyrics stand out more.

Overall I prefer the original but there was some dopeness on this joint too.

His Party Life offering was nice

As was Pray for me

I like what No Hook as well.

The Brown Tape (Apollo Brown's remix album of 12 Reasons To Die by Ghostface Killah) is actually considered better than the original.
Rise of the black suits..

Thoughts on remix/blend joints.
