I really hope they've done more press photo visuals. This is really stunning.
I didn't know what I was expecting from the Fun Tonight remix after only reading reactions here but it's brilliant. Can't wait for it to play during Carnaval... in 2023.
I’m glad we’re getting some of the closeup claw images
Drop the full photo Queen!
I want Sam to do everything, always for the rest of her career. Their work has been phenomenal.
Where is the UK vinyl link? Has it been posted yet?
The remix album is fine. It's given an entertaining boost to a few songs and proved that some of them are just bad at their core and can't really be salvaged. What ARCA did to "Rain On Me" is... so weird. She kinda dismantled it and just... hung all the pieces up to dry. I kinda feel like she played with Ariana's parts more? It's a weird treatment with no momentum. It's like you're hearing the original from a speaker that fell in the pool and it's slowly glitching out.
Rina and Bree ate. "Replay" got a much needed shot of adrenaline. "Alice", "Plastic Doll", "Sour Candy" and "1000 Doves" became tolerable.
I think these are the full ones. I’m guessing they were used as references for the airbrush versions
Speaking of the claws, I love the full skeletal version Sam added in their work.
I’m hoping they give us a better version of this photo but instead of blasting it through a ton of photoshop effects, do something interesting with it with some 3D tweaks.
I feel like anyone who hates the “Fun Tonight” mix is terminally boring.
When Eltoinette's dearly departed vocals, the memory of which I had very successfully suppressed, came on in the remix
Giving me Akira teas.
The Area mix is really strong in the beginning, it just doesn't go anywhere.
I think the vocal melodies and delivery of rain on me are so distinct and strong...that it is very ambitious to put them onto a more melancholic and sparse instrumental. The build up with Arianas vocals is really sweet though.
I don't know why, but Arca's take on Rain On Me doesn't shock me and is pretty much what I was expecting - it very much feels like she turned it into a KiCK i track (samples from that album aside) and I think @RJF is right in that she spends a lot more time manipulating Ariana's vocals than Gaga's, but for me, it offers a nice oasis of melancholy from all the chaos surrounding it on the album.
It’s been said, but so many of the sonic choices here are exactly what the original album should have had. Not everything works, but I respect so much about the collection.
