This is hard, as Electrical Storm is the only song that I really think much of, and even then, only in original form. The William Orbit mix neuters the song.

1. Electrical Storm
2. The Hands That Built America
3. Sweetest Thing
4. Window In The Skies
5,000,000,000. The Saints Are Coming

Agree 99%. Would have been 100% but you are far too kind to TSAC, Id say 1,000,000,000,000. would have been better!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Electrical Storm is a great song, possibly their best this century apart from TGBHF.
Which one is the WIlliam Orbit mix? I hate the one which opens with a guitar line? The one that starts with the dreamy keyboard line is infinitely superior! It's the version used in the video.

1. Electrical Storm
2. Sweetest Thing
3. Window In The Sky
4. The Saints Are Coming
5. The Hands That Built America

the one you hate is the 'band version', the one you like, from the video is the 'William Orbit mix'.

Oh right?
I was wrong to say that I hate it, but in my humble opinion, the Orbit mix is far superior. Maybe my Ecstatic days going to raves in the 90s pushed me in the direction of W Orbit and his music style.

1. Window
2. Storm
3. Sweetest
4. Saints
5. Hands

For some intangible reason, I love Windows, but I think Hands makes my skin crawl. Edge has a couple nice changes in there (although that keyboard sound is pretty terrible), but everything else seems so lazy and tossed-off that it drives me crazy. Bono's "hook" of the chorus is especially egregious and some of his verses seem shoe-horned into a meter in the most awkward way.

It is absolutely bonkers that they won an academy award for this. Not that I take much stock in the awards, but this is just not a worthy effort or execution.
