We gave it a C

This retrospective collection of remixed singles — The Cure’s attempt to join in the trendy dance style known as house music — frosts a perfectly good chocolate cake with pickle relish. Elongating familiar songs isn’t a bad idea, but some of these gauzy rock tunes really don’t need the rhythmic charge they get from added drum tracks. Fans will need the one new song, ”Never Enough,” and two rerecorded oldies, but Mixed Up is a pause that confuses in a career otherwise known for rampant creativity. C
