It's a good version, but there's just too much going on in it.

I still like the William Orbit version the best, though they're all excellent. It's a very inspired song.

I like the one on the Bsides disc the best but this is a decent version. I think I have heard this before, but it doesnt sound like a finished product. I am glad they didnt put this version on the album but its good for collectors.

In the leaked version I loved the acoustic guitars that opened the song. I liked the 'official' version, but the leaked version started out so tenderly and then built up into a (little) frenzy to end the song. Far and away the best version of the song.

The guitar melody in the chorus was so good...I've always wondered why they decided against using it. My vision of a perfect Electrical Storm is the William Orbit mix with the omitted guitar parts included.

I prefer the leaked version, I got it from a friend who HATES U2(yea ironically ) and this was the only song he liked... I had never heard of it (was tagged Ullrick mix, who's Ullrick?) and I loved it!
then I got the double disc best of 1990-2000, and it wasn't on it... I never knew what version it was, till the thread surfaced in MOTI a little while back...
I still love this version to death, it's much rawer than the other two versions.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...
