Both mixes - the one from Josh Wink and the one from Oliver Lieb - are not good in my ears.
Although I like most of Josh Wink´s releases I even think the one from Oliver Lieb is a little bit better.
But both mixes are quite boring. Josh Wink mixes the boredom with some very enerving elements, so that I only want to turn off my stereo. The whisper part is quite interesting indeed, but it can´t make my vote for this track better.
Oliver Lieb gets 3 points for this.
Josh Wink ( & the edit ) only two.
Oakenfold by the way has done better work in former times...

One Day later I listened to it again – now I´d give each track 3 points. All quite okay.

So you see it often depends on the mood…

No, I agree with the 1st comment. Apart from the Harry Nillson sample, the original is crap. The Oliver Lieb mix is also pretty dire, way too trancey. But the Josh Wink is pretty decent, nice bouncy tech house track. And as the first comment points out, it ditches most of the original elements.

To totally dis-regard the Oliver Lieb remix, kinda makes any comments about Josh Wink's remix rather stupid, especially as it's by no means one of Wink's better remix's, infact mediocre springs to mind. To further add the insult that the 'Original' belongs in the bin, is just plain foolish as it's one of the most original tunes, that Oakenfold has put his name too.

The only thing that makes this release worth listening to is the awesome Josh Wink remix. Luckily mr. Wink only kept the good parts of the orgiginal track (in other words, threw everything in the trash bin except for some whispers from Shifty). The origninal version is just horrible!
