Vital Idol: Revitalized begins with the beloved classic White Wedding receiving a bass-heavy remix from CRAY that highlights Idol’s signature vocals. It begins as a Rock-oriented remix and flows into a kind of Hip-Hop retelling that flows back into the more traditional Rock sound. For those that purchase a digital download of the album, there’s a four-track bonus that includes Mony Mony (Idol/Stevens Remix), One Breath Away (Paul Oakenfold Extended Remix), (Do Not) Stand In The Shadows (Moby Remix) (Half Time Version), and Save Me Now (Lost Dog Remix), which is actually the work of Idol’s son, Willem Wolfe, with Brandon Rauch and. Ed Bedrosian.
Besides being certified platinum, Vital Idol was accompanied by a version of Mony Mony that reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, as well as hitting the Top 10 on the . Highlights found within the grooves of Revitalized include The Crystal Method’s percussive, explosive stab at Rebel Yell, CRAY’s essed White Wedding, Tropkillaz’s trop-house framing of Eyes Without A Face, St. Francis Hotel’s shimmering stop/start caress of Flesh For Fantasy, and RAC’s retro-harmonic, fist-pumping Dancing With Myself.

Vital Idol is a sort of remixed greatest-hits collection, gathering some of Billy Idol's best tracks and extending them all past the five-minute mark. It doesn't really work as a hits collection, since it's missing key songs like "Rebel Yell" and "Eyes Without a Face," and most of the dance remixes are repetitious and uninteresting compared to the originals.
