Sweetest Best Selection 1997-2006 & Sweetest Remix

Postby John » Sun Apr 02, 2017 5:25 am

Hey everybody! Here's some not-so news. Avex (go figure) is releasing two new Sweetbox compilation albums in Japan on April 19 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Everything's Gonna Be Alright. In true Avex form, the tracklists are unique and the cover artworks are masterpieces.

Can't help but feel like they've done these to death, there's nothing new like you said XDaside from a few new remixes but still... thanks for sharing though!

I didn't actually believe when the email came in at the start of March about the releases. Thank God they shortened the titles though from their working ones!

So Sweetest Best is essentially a compact Complete Best (and essentially called that over on the blog)

Nice it's new remixes for the other one though. Part of my thought that it might be a cut and paste job from Best of 12" collection and the Reggae Mix.

I just CAN'T at them releasing new remixes and compilations for ancient songs that NO ONE is checking for. Like who wanted this?????? If combined they sell 5k I'll truly be surprised.

I wonder what Jade and Geo think about these albums...

Reckon I'd be pretty pissed off if it was my music they were doing this to

If they're getting royalties, then I don't think that they'd care. In fact Geo did two of the remixes, so I think it's safe to say that he doesn't mind. This is also Avex's project, so Heiko Schmidt isn't involved because he sold the rights to the 1995-2006 Sweetbox songs to Avex (at least in Japan). The fact that only one non-Jade song is included in these compilations makes me suspect that Avex are quite fond of Jade.

^I love that they got rid of the old Avex Sweetbox page and have now replaced it with "sweetboxx."

According to a Google Translate version of info about Sweetest Best, Jade and Geo share commentary on the individual songs in the booklet. If it's in English, I would love to see it!

And of course there the collaboration that's happening in the Billboard Live clubs with the food and drink to promote it too

Haha oh my god I can't at them doing actual promo for an album that's just a bunch of 11+ year old songs using ancient pics of Jade from the Adagio shoot?? I don't get who signed this off and who thinks that money is gonna pour in? I mean at least it'll make Jade slightly relevant for a quick second. But does anyone want a new bunch of messy remixes?? Lmao. Anyway I see both "sweetbox The Best" and "SWEETEST REMIX" are on Spotify now, so let me have a listen to see if any of the remixes are decent.

Anyway... it's hilarious. I'm obsessed with that truck with Adagio pics.

LOL I love the truck!

I'm (pleasantly) surprised to see the albums on Spotify, even though I already bought Sweetest Remix from iTunes Japan. Overall, I think the remixes are decent, but not outstanding. Comparing remixes, I prefer Sweetest Remix's song choices, but Sweet Reggae Mix's remixes.

I found out that the commentary from Jade and Geo in the booklet is in English, so I can't wait to see more scans.

Oh yeah! I'm dumb. Had Jade and Adagio confused. Listening to the Sweetest Remix album today - the "Whole New World" remix is kinda cute.

There's some songs I just can't stand any more like Cinderella, no remix can save that song for me lol. The "Sacred OHC remix" is pleasant - always loved that song.
