Best song ever written indeed! It deserved more than 3 and a half minute. Twenty seven years has passed since the first time but it is still fresh to my ears!
Thanks Joy Division!

Very interesting mix actually... Sounds like a mix between the radio version, the clean one, and with guitar sounding more live, obviously like the live versions... I thought I was going like "Hug... Not that good" but in fact it was a nice to hear. (Sorry guys, I love the melody, and the lyrics, but the "complete" songs, with every instruments and the song structure never been breath taking to me, unlike most Joy Division songs, except for the Bains Douches version)

Like the remixes, esp. the second one. But one problem remains that I already had with the 1995 remixes: I looooove the synth-strings on LWTUA. If I had to decide for one instrument I can live without on LWTUA it had to be the guitar...
The synth are too much in the background on these mixes, the guitar is to loud and the voice could be a bit louder...
Could live without the last 20 seconds.

On edit:
I have to correct myself. What makes the original mix of LWTUA so unique is the "antagonistic" role of the instruments: although it's kind of a "ballad", the guitar is nearly punk-like (Sumner compared it to "Holidays in the Sun", esp. the intro) and the drums are very upfront and kind of aggressive. The synth-strings, the bass and the vocals on the other hand are very emotional to say the least. The synths give me "goose bumps" ( I hope this is the correct english word)-feeling every time I hear the song.

It's this antagonism and tension that makes the song so unique. The acoustic or acoustic like softened guitar takes away this tension and pushes LWTUA in the direction of just a ballad (although a fantastic one).

Admiring the genius of Hannett once more...
Dirk

P.S. Cudos to Analog Loyalist nonetheless. I'm pretty concinced he gets my perspective...

I like the mix - although I'm pretty sure that strange phasing effect on Ian's vocal is only on the multi-tracks and can't be heard on the original mixes. I wonder how that happened?

Does anyone have the full stem files? I have the vocal file, but none of the instrument/drum tracks. All the links on the web are now dead, so if anyone can help me out, please PM me!
