Shocked and ecstatically happy to hear this song! Such a solid B-side conveying that much soul and gravity deserves to be on the album itself. But since it didn't get there, any listener will just have to settle for uncovering it among these remixes like a well deserved "easter egg."
...for the first time". This is the best song to come out of the Playing the Angel sessions, hands down. Why it was not on the album, who knows? Dave's vocal is incredible!
One of my new favorites
I'm absolutely in love with Depeche Mode - they've never been a disappointment to me; they'll continue to be the best for the NEXT 2 decades... Newborn is stunning, amazing - how can you NOT like this song if you can say you're a fan of Depeche Mode?? THIS is what DM is all about, everyone. Please remember that, as you sit and listen to all the new crappy insignificant bands who borrow ideas from these masters, and who will never survive as long... Depeche Mode is the best. Forever. jjillibeenz
One Stuck out.....
Right when I started going through these remixes, one stuck out from the rest. Thats the Jacques Lu Cont Remix. This has to be hands down the best remixes DM has had ever. I love this mix, and all you people (yeah, you people), need to buy it. Best remix, ever!!!
They're the best
I love Depeche Mode. For years they have put out alternate remixes of their single releases. Who else does that. They have tons...just look at the number of pages on itunes dedicated to them. Anyway, big votes from me on rating this.
this is a straightforward collections of remixes. A must for DM fans. I appreicate the Edits. I also see that you can buy the full mixes. So it is nice to have that choice. The remixes themself are fun and diverse.
Get the DJ version
This album is decent, but Get the DJ Version of it instead. Yes, you can download it from iTunes too. So really, I'm not commenting on this album, I'm commenting on many other posts that complain about not getting the full versions of the songs from iTunes. It has 7 songs, not 6, and for the 3 songs on this album that are marked with [Edit], they exist on the DJ version as full versions. In fact, they're all 6 to 7 minutes long instead of edited down to 4+ minutes. There are two other key differences though: The DJ version includes a Jacques Lu Cont "DUB"... also, Newborn is a Remixed version on the DJ album as well, not the (Original). So there, praise iTunes, you can buy the DJ version of the whole darn thing, and come back here and just buy one version of the original Newborn!
Cheer up emo kids
or go cut your wrists, anyways, either cheer up, or quit listening to this crap (remember down the highway, not across the street)
A pain that i'm not getting used to!
Depeche mode are excellent. Jacques AKA Stuart is a fantastic mixer! Goldfrapp are sex on disc. Great mixes! However the composers of our amazing world of itunes need to get a clue and stop giving us edits of the mixes. On maxi cd singles it is known as a space filler to me. We dont want the edits of these mixes on our itunes we want the non-edit mixes.
Shall we say it all together now?
I have been looking foward to this mix cd, because Pain is my fav song on Playing, esp. the Jacques mix(since my obsession stems from the amazing work he has done WITH(not for) Madonna.) So thanks but no thanks, I am hopeful that the Tower records in my city will have this disc soon.
A Pain That I'm NOT Used To
I love Newborn, and the remixes are a welcome addition everytime. But there is no WAY I'm paying my good hard earned cash for EDITS. Give me a break! Get a life Depeche Mode!
