I'm currently feelin: disappointed disappointed

... I'm probably one of the few people who was actually disappointed while listening to the new and official remix of Electrical Storm - the one that will be featured on the album.

It's missing my favourite, and in my opinion, one of the most dynamic musical changes in the song... and that's the part when the Edge's guitar chords are changing during the chorus (if the sky can crack, etc). The demo, original, or whatever version you want to call it - had those 4 chord changes per bar, where Edge would slide the notes up the fretboard...

... the remix version just has the one chord change per bar, and is lacking what I liked the most in the original.

Oh well. We all can't be happy. :P

However, I do like the polishing they've done with the remix... it does sound like a U2 song, albeit, I'm curious to know how this song came to be.

I'm mixing my own version of Electrical Storm, with the chord changes left in. That was my favorite part of the song too...
I'll find some way to get it hosted or send it to you when it's done.

Well, I liked mine... but... now that I've heard the album version, I think I can live with that.
I still agree that the single version sounds cool, but is lacking a little something...

yeah i noticed the lack of chords in that part, it doesnt sound as good does it.

i love both versions, i slightly prefer the demo version overall, but i prefer the intro and outro of the single version
