yeah idk.

imo only the opening sounds different to me, i don't hear how it's been remixed. but that's just me. it sounds okay but rather bland. the drums seem a bit peppier but that's it.

re: magnificent...at least they got rid of the cool intro. i really didn't enjoy the most non-generic part of the song.

Is it faster too? Hard for me to tell.

There's some Desmond in there too.

So they put in some Africa/Desmond stuff and that's a remix? Other than slightly different drums (seems faster in the chorus, but slower during verses); not sure it was worth bringing back......though I guess give them some time to fine tune it.

At least it wasn't another ATYCLB song.

It seemed a little more upbeat an energetic to me. Especially on Bono's part.


But, I have one question:

Why do the boys get such a HUGE boner for Tutu?

Honestly it doesn't sound all that different to me and definitely not what I think of when I hear the word 'remix'. They seemed to have just tweaked it a tad.

"Remix" magnificent blows big time. Seriously, bring back the old version. I really can't stand this new one.

Agreed.

I've had no problem with the Crazy Tonight and EBTTRT remixes, but this seems very... forced. And even though it's very minimal, I think four songs in is a little too early in the show to be starting the political (Tutu) stuff.

Agreed, not really liking this one. The original way seemed more fun, and that early in the set, that is what is needed. Plus are they still using the Tutu vid for One? A second time seems like overkill.

They ruined it! This new version is so thin and lifeless and it sounded like they just wanted to hurry up and get it over with. The loud RAWRR guitar part at the beginning of the original sounded so great live. And as if we need more political/Tutu stuff crammed in there! I'm very disappointed.

This.

It's so thin and watery sounding now. I don't mind a bit of shimmer but I liked when Magnificent had some muscle, too. I was so looking forward to hearing the intro at the show I'm attending.

And yeah, political stuff only four songs in is way too early.

Yeah, I agree about it sounding rushed. If this is because they're sick of the song, I'd almost rather have them drop it than continue to play it in this arrangement.

Hopefully they will revert back to the song's original arrangement.

I agree.

And I'm not sure if I would call the Tutu stuff "political" per se, but it doesn't really seem to fit the song.

Original version is much better. This to me is a song that needs to be slower, so this remix just makes it sound.. off
