The version of From Yesterday on here is slightly edited from the version appearing on their album 'A Beautiful Lie' this is a wonderously well-produced song full of lush synth strings and U2 style atmospheric guitar work. It goes through all kinds of emotions - scary, uplifting, angry - all delivered extremely well by Jared Leto. 30 Seconds To Mars seem to be one of those bands music critics seem determined to slate - but with tunes as good as this, that criticism is unjustly thrust on them. An amazing song.
The stunning b-side is a complete transformation of Kanye West's number 1 single, in my opinion at least, surpasses the original. Easily one of the best Live Lounge recordings too, it's haunting and makes for an excellent b-side. And as for the video you get on the CD too... 13 minutes long, Wow!
