Original Of The Species (Single Version) @ 05:35 pm

indiansummersky:
I uploaded this for anyone who hasn't heard it yet:

U2 - Original Of The Species (Single Version)

It's been uploaded with MU, because I have had no luck with YSI at all (for a while, actually - anyone else got the same problem?).

As ever, i'd love to hear what everyone who has heard it thinks of it. I was expecting a bit more from it, but it's still very nice - I don't think it's better than tha album version, though.

First off, awesome icon. :)

Now, my opinion of the single edit. I like it, but I like the album version better. The album version sounds like a U2 song; the single edit sounds kind of like U2 doing The Beatles. And, don't get me wrong; I love the Beatles. But I love U2 more, and I'd rather hear a U2 song than U2 doing the Beatles. But it is more poppy, lush, and polished, which will probably make it more apt to cross-over, and (at least to me) it's a bit Christmas-y.

But at least they didn't hack it apart like "City of Blinding Lights". I'm still peeved about that.

Oh cheers for the VBR mp3.

I love the single, just love it. The louder guitar part is my favourite change.

Thanks so much for sharing this! It's my favourite song on HTDAAB, and I do like this edit. Definitely like the louder guitar. Just a beautiful song.

The keyboard is my favorite part of the original Original. (Ha! that was a good one!) So while I like the new echoing intro, I don't like that the strings and guitar take it over earlier in the song.

Ack, the new intro is horrible - I much prefer how it sounds on the album. Apart from that, I can't really put my finger on what's different... the new strings jump out at you a little, I can't decide if that's a good or bad thing. Bono sounds a bit quieter in the mix, but I might just be imagining that?

On the whole it's not too bad, I'm glad they didn't chop anything out like they did with COBL. The album version is better though.
