YCBTO remix !!

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

What do you think of the remix ?

Not much - you can't improve on perfection.

I think this one will divide HLers even more than the original did.

It sounds more like the Sisters than the original did, which I think kind of misses the point. Sorry...

I agree with mh that it sounds more like the Sisters than the orginal did. However, the bloody chorus is still there ...

YCBTO is not supposed to sound like Sisters from the first place :lol:
so any Sisters approach is wrong :)

Fair enough, most prefer the full-speed, less trippy version. I would still recommend checking out the same YouTuber's other remixes - in addition to those I've previously recommended, Newchlochim has recently added various live remixes of Slept and Gift That Shines amongst others. :notworthy:

I don't dare to listen to it. It is torturing enough even to think about the original, everytime I do that, I hear the refrain in my ear. Like, now :urff:

But still, YBCTO is superior than any of 99,99% TSOM songs.

I don't like ANY covers of ANY sisters songs; and if it's not done by somebody with ABSOLUTE LOVE AND AFFECTION then i'm not keen on unofficial remixes either.
as YCBTO is a fabulous track that sorts the wheat from the chaff hereabouts i've obviously voted for option 1. :von:

Sounds like someone put the 12" mix on at 33 1/3rd instead of 45. Leaves me cold - doesn't have the drive and nastiness that made the original such a pile-driver. This one's a a plodder.
