That 'ache' that Bono sometimes speaks of with U2's music is lessened somewhat on this version imho at least. It loses a little bit of its rawness and ache with all the extra production in the coda in particular, and it ends up turning into almost a feel-good ending.
That said I do rather like it. But just a 3 stars for me, it's not off the scale good, but is a nice alternative. Wonder if it will be done this way live?
"As a teenager, Bowie was our Elvis. They shared the same birthday and they both took music somewhere no one thought it could go. It was his otherworldliness that took us all away. A sense that we are not just earth bound creatures..."
