This. It always seemed to feel watered down to me.
The original is a short sharp shock by comparison

it's badly done as well. in fairness in those days extended remixes of shorter songs (rather than longer versions a la TOL 12">7") were often badly done cut and paste jobs, but still..... for sure it didnt deserve its own B-side ressurection, but its valid for a) filling a flexi rarity an artifact with limited use and b) being called the "amphetamix".

But You Could Be The One is a serious reason to have the single! No doubt about that Wink Smile

I have to admit I've always liked it - partly because I heard "Long Train" on a bootleg before I'd ever heard the original "Train," I think, and partly because it was long, so i didn't have to start it over constantly. I liked driving around at night listening to that on repeat.

Why are so many peeps hating MORE? The lyrics are quintessential Eldritch. Probably the only song, where he is 100% himself.

Me? I dont like 1959. Dull & pathetic.

and ... errr... train...

I like the opening of "More", but the shrill vocals in the chorus irritate me. I don't like the current live version either.

how can you not like Untitled? one of the most atmospheric, moving pieces of music ever. and basically Dominion slowed down with no vocals. Ozymandias is just annoying though i'll give you that.
