So, as promised, here is the other version of “Standard” which appeared on the previous disc. The acid line is still there but the rest of the track has been worked and reworked into something with a lot more polish and sheen.
Is it better or just different?
It’s really difficult to decide. They both have their merits. This version, I feel, is musically more rounded and has more depth but because of this feels a little less gritty.
I guess they don’t really have to be compared in that way. Lets just look at them as an example of how we took an idea and pushed it through to it’s conclusion. Sometimes we stopped at “Standard”. Others, we elevated to something more like this.
