I've always been a big fan of this remix single, which is mostly Apollo 440 reworkings. Something about the way the Grays altered the song managed to keep the aesthetic of the original and even further it in certain ways, while pushing a danceable side on the Solar Plexus versions, and a very spacious, relaxed-but-intense burn on the Magic Hour version. Each mixe is clearly recognizable as being "Mysterious Ways"—there's no wholesale gutting going on, but rather an enriching of the original formula. Even at its most energetic, it's still a somehow very soothing and reassuring song, grand in scope, but beguilingly nocturnal.
