Presumably the remixed/revised/newest version of 'Why', as featured on the EP 'One By One'. Itís similar in just about every way; however the original for me is superior. If there was to be any change to make, Iíd make the gax drops heavier and the vox more gritty and heartfelt.
Thereís a lot of atmos in there, I personally prefer the cozy intimate feel of the original, yet itís growing on me. The abrupt gax in the chorus I love so much kind of disappears as now itís mixed in with some vocal overtones. Itís kind of watered down, yet zazzed up Ė I donít know what to think.
... but then I listen to it more, and contrast the two versions, and I can appreciate the little variances. I like original because itís simple, I just wonder if this version is a little too complex? Itís richer, granted, and a lot more gussied up, my question is Ďdoes it need it though?í I donít know, Iím no producer.
I do like the ninja gax subliminals in the intro, and the huge sound that it evokes from the get-go. Interesting to see where they go with this.
I wonder ...
