Remixed

This set of heavily doctored Johnny Cash tunes almost succeeds as musical comedy. Pete Rock adds an electronic shuffle in an otherwise faithful sendup of "Folsom Prison Blues," and the result is pleasantly goofy. And producer Philip Steir (No Doubt, Los Amigos Invisibles) amusingly inserts the fast-talking near-rap from Cash's "Get Rhythm" into a bumpy disco-house mix. The thing is, this wasn't intended as comedy — it's a "tribute" executive-produced by Snoop Dogg and the late singer's son, John Carter Cash. The most god-awful thing here comes from Alabama 3, the British novelty act responsible for the theme song to The Sopranos. Their contribution? The aptly titled "Leave That Junk Alone."
