5.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag of tracks, but bonus MP3s, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thursday (Audio CD)
Bit of a mixed bag this one. The title track is very a strong dance number, featuring the vocal talents of Example alongside Neil's distinctive clipped tones. The Tensnake Remix, personally doesn't feel as strong as the single, it's a bit too pure dance for me. The surprise though comes with the 2 "b-sides", as both of these are ballads which jar slightly for me with the whole "electric" vibe. Pretty much all of the material released so far has been pure dance tracks. Not that I'm averse to PSB ballads (Do I Have To?, and Rent immediately spring to mind as greats), but I don't think either of these are up there with those. Of the two, No More Ballads is definitely the stronger, with Odd Man Out being a bit simplistic for me.

Also, a strange thing happened with the Free Auto-Rip "MP3" version of the CD that I received yesterday. This was the "Remix" version of the single, which meant I got 2 extra remixes for virtually nowt (albeit in 256Mb/s MP3 format). Nice treat.

I also got THREE (not two) extra "Thursday Remixes" with Amazon's Auto-Rip for this CD single!

Thursday (Remixes) (not Thursday )
1. Thursday (No Rap Radio Edit) 3:32
2. Thursday (Eddie Amador Remix) 6:45
3. Thursday (Mindskap Remix) 5:55
That gives me something to listen to while I wait for the CD to reach me on the other side of the planet :D

This is not the first time the auto-rip has differed from the purchased CD, for example Love Is A Bourgeois Construct came with a 4 track auto-rip containing a track not featured on the CD - Love is a Bourgeois Construct (The Penelopes Remix Radio Edit) and the CD has a track not available digitally - Love Is A Bourgeois Construct (Little Boots Discothèque Dub), so thanks to Amazon those who bought the CD got all 10 official tracks.

Amazon must have got wise to this - I only got the 4 tracks on my AutoRip purchase.

Like the review, however it doesn't tally with the five stars!
