Why? It doesn't suck. Well, except for that Kornél Kovács Remix atrocity of course. :)

The b-sides could accompany any single choice. It's all about the remixes and these, as I predicted, are awful. TS is unremixable (and a crappy song).

I'm liking the White Dress. Like someone said before me, its got that futuristic 90s sound, and a chillout vibe. Wiedersehen; I like Neil's vocals, which sound unusually fragile to me; seems like they have been very well produced. The Evo Jedis remix is exactly what I was expecting, which was adding a regular reggaeton beat to the song; I'm also liking the remixed music video better than the original!

When I heard the white dress my first impressions were that this is what I thought super was going to sound like...dark ambient techno ...wish there ws more lyrics but this is really really good.

And wiedershane...is really beautiful I love how gently neil starts singing....I havent heard him sing like that since "for all of us". And that third verse..not that anyone cares but it sounds to me like he manually double tracked that part like he used to do in the old days which sounds sooooo much better.
Anyways very good stuff!

I'm predicting at least some minor success of the remix in Latin markets! Reggaeton may seem very weird to you Brits, but over here it's all over the place. (for good or bad :roll: )

I quite like the Los Evo mix, nice how they are fooling around with the melody in the background to make it a bit more playful. The two B sides are nice, not embarrassing, but nothing that shouts "wow" to me. Need to listen more to absorb.

Not sure what the Kovács remix is supposed to accomplish.

I think they could take the opportunity to add the RNG remix of The Pop Kids on the single to have a proper and maybe most wanted CD. But they didn't.

To everybody that paid to download the Kovacs remix: I feel for you. How did the boys green-light this pile of crap?

The White Dress is ok but falls short lyrically.

Wiedersehen is a lovely song.

I listened to the remixes. The first one actually isn't bad but doesn't improve on the original mix. The second one I will never listen to again.

Kovács remix is so good! It's a shame that it's not on the CD!

Why, what are the dimensions of TS? Like the Electric singles oversized packaging?
