Fixed

Fixed, the remix EP of Broken, has a completely different feel than it's counterpart; whereas Broken sounds like fire crackling, Fixed sounds muted as if listening to the album through water.

Prime examples of this watery sound are "Wish" and "Fist Fuck". "Gave Up" is a more upbeat version of the original and has a much more electronic feel. "Happiness in Slavery" sounds a little like the original version mixed with something from the Front by Front album by Front 242 and is less angry sounding than the original. "Throw This Away" begins with a modified version of "Help Me I Am In Hell" from Broken lest if feel left out. "Fist Fuck", by the same token, begins with a variant of "Pinion". Finally, what "Screaming Slave" lacks in melody, it overachieves at in CD skipping noises; whether or not that is a good choice is up for debate.

Overall, I prefer this album to Broken. I do wish there was a version of "Last" though. I am not sure if leaving this song off of the album was intentional or an oversight; but in my opinion, it would have been a better closing track than "Screaming Slave".
