It's coming soon apparently. With you on the MJC remix. Best remix of this package by quite a stretch.

Quantity over quality for a DM single once again. Some of these are along the lines of most modern DM remixes, i.e. poor, generic beats that seem like they were sat for a while on a producers hard drive and then had a DM vocal sample or two thrown on top.

They're not quite as bad as the Where's the Revolution double 12" set though.

On a more positive note, the Belleville Three Full Mix is worthy of an extra listen or two, Maya Jane Coles remix is not bad, and the Poison Heart rework stays fairly faithful to the original but with enough changes to make it new and interesting.

For the first time I can honestly say I probably won't buy the physical release of a DM single, on the plus side it's saving me money.

Edit - After a few more listens the Chris Liebing Burn Slow Mix is growing on me. It's no classic, but it's not bad.

  robotron2084 - This is a most precise description of DM singles and EP releases since 2001. You may get an "OK" remix from time to time, but most of them are just basic loops with Dave Gahan overdubbed on them. I simply stopped buying DM singles since "Previous" - the band has nothing to do with the single release and all remixes are BAD!

I agree with this. I lasted a while longer though, and stopped buying new singles after "Peace".

I actually think that these are some of the finest Mode mixes in a long, long time. Might have something to do with this being one of Mode's strongest singles in years but I do think these mixes are quite inventive and tap into the spirit of the original track. This could well be the first DM single I've bought since 'Suffer Well' and the double vinyl looks very tempting.
