Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Busta Rhymes
Title: Don't Touch Me (Travis Barker Remix)
Label: Aftermath/Interscope

The original "Don't Touch Me (Throw the Water On 'Em)" was already one of the most bouncy pop songs released from Busta's (continually) delayed new album. As far as I can tell the only difference the "Travis Barker Remix" adds is a layer of guitar and a little bit heavier drums, but otherwise the song is essentially the same. Busta rips through the song in typical high-speed high-octane format and also uses his familiar gimmick of changing volume throughout the song - pulling the beat and delivery down to a whisper until to bring it back it up to scream DON'T TOUCH ME when necessary. The funniest part of the song may actually be when he stops flowing for a few seconds just to suck wind for a minute on the mic. As for the remix, I can't see how it adds to or improves the song, but the track is another surefire club hit for Trevor either way.
