Come on, if I can like the "new" album, so can all of you.

The only re-worked stuff I've heard is Oh Sailor and Not About Love. I'm curious to see what's different with all the other ones.

I am kinda disappointed that they took the edge off of a lot of the songs and threw some guitars around, but it doesn't change the fact that the songs are still good.

fucking shit.

Jon Brion's work was so much better. Not About Love, Better Version of Me, and Used to Love Him (Tymps or whatever) were just butchered. Oh Sailor is a little bit better.

The strings in Not About Love and Oh Well were the best parts of the album. and they're gone. ugh.

Mm. Brion's work was cuter. I really don't feel that anything was subtracted from the songs with the final release. I miss the strings a little bit, but in the end I think they were just too ostentatious on their own like that. It felt like Fiona VS the Boston Pops Orchestra string section.

The drums in Not About Love just don't fit. Maybe that's the point.... but they certainly don't make the song more accessible. And the last "what wasted unconditional love" is way less dramatic. And Oh Well in general is just a lot....lighter or something.

Brion > this new guy.

I am glad I have the original version.

I don't really feel like comparing the two. The released album has everything flipped around...song order, mood, etc. It's spacier and funkier and obviously more heavily produced and the gut reaction of most people (myself *******d) is that the first one was better, but that doesn't keep me from liking some of the weird atmospheric shit that got put on the new versions, especially already knowing the songs.

The leaked version of "Get Him Back" was really cool in a sort of frantic, perverse way, wasn't it? It really sounds like she's going to explode at the end.

After repeated listens...

Not About Love almost redeems itself. After the first verse and chorus or whatever, it's actually pretty cool.

I still think Better Version of Me and Used to Love Him were completely ruined. Oh Well really benefited from the strings I think.

I think those are my only complaints.
