Customer Review

on 7 November 2012
First up, Amazon list the second track on this remix CD single as the "believe in PSB" mix. It isn't - on the CD version I bought it is the 6:14 HappySad remix by Andrew Dawson. And it's a very good stripped-back downtempo electronica affair too, all spacey, echoey vocals, strings and oboe: i like it a lot. Something of a splice-and- dice approach taken to the lyrics as Moby did on his remix of Miserabalism. The demo version of Leaving is decent enough - very like the album/single version but without the polishing. But I'm afraid I don't like the 11+mins Lost Her Love remix much - Leaving doesn't strike me as a song that suits an overt uptempo remix. It starts off sounding vaguely like very early U2 to my ears, then we get some awful demo-ish atonal piano before the squelchy bass kicks in just shy of the 2mins mark and it makes me start to think of mid-1990s PSB remixed by Trouser Enthusiasts, only nowhere near as good. It picks up in the last third but overall, its a bit of a mess and sounds dated. Stick with the HappySad remix. Haven't checked out the PSB own remixes on download yet - this is taking me back to the good old days of ZTT's multi-format releases for Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Art of Noise!
