No autorip ...ok , but the included download card is unredeemable.

As another customer has mentioned, the download card doesn't work on the website it tells you to visit. When you enter the code a message appears telling you the code has already been used. Fairplay to Amazon who sent me a replacement record which has arrived today. Same result with the download card though. It's a bit odd Amazon UK aren't running the Autorip function for this record as Amazon Germany have that in place.

The 3 versions of the song are ok - not everyone's cup of tea but interesting to hear. I bought this record as a collector of Macca not as a fan of dance music as such so I wouldn't know if this is a successful trip in to that genre or not to be honest although I did enjoy hearing this song in a new light.

Sometimes it's unwise to dig out past work, and change for current audiences. But I don't mind this. I dare say there will be some that say leave well alone, otherwise you might ruin it.

The original version of this started off with a rolling piano and kept that riff going throughout the song and pretty damn good it was too. McCartney has employed the assistance of Timo Maas and James Teej (whoever they are) to turn an early 1970s tune into something in the trance/techno/electropop category that dispenses with what actually made the song such a stand out in the first place. Yes, he has delved into experimental themes throughout his career but it's always been with new tracks (genres such as trance didn't exist back then but what was around begat what it is now.) Why he has chosen to do this to something from 1973 is mystifying. Maybe he thought it's a way to connect with a much younger audience and get them to investigate his back catalogue. They'll be sorely disappointed when they discover its the antonym of this.

Want to explore different avenues? Fine. Want to try your hand at another genre of music? That's fine too. But do it with something new. Yes, this song will be new to that market, so maybe he did it for no other reason than it was something to do. But whatever anyone else thinks, to me '1985' is early 70s and it always will be. It's not trance, it's not electronic and it's certainly not digitised with AutoTune, or whatever it's called. The Bee Gees tried a similar thing with some of their disco tracks and it was a shambles. So is this. And that's the problem. The legions of us who know '1985' will always be trying to hear that in this and comparing the two. Maybe that's the wrong way to go about it but it's not something you can ignore. There are those who will no doubt get some mileage out of this release but I won't be listening to any of the three versions on here again.
