I kinda wish this was the remix they used for Give It 2 Me. Sly & Robbie are legendary and it would've been a nice change of pace
That is because this isn't really remastered, it's just compressed, boosted and (really) louder. One could do that on Audacity for free.I’ve just had the chance to listen to the remix album and I’m actually not a big fan of the remastering. I’m listening on Airpods Max which in my opinion have fantastic sound, and the bass is far too heavy for these tracks, and the volume too loud I think. The tracks have just been ‘brickwalled’. They sounded better when listening to them using regular speakers, but the bass is ridiculously heavy on headphones. It’s great that they’ve all been brought up to the same volume and sound very ‘punchy’ and loud, but it’s a bit clumsy.
I assumed the whole set would hit streaming, but this one-disc version is absolutely immaculate. It’s like a cute “What If?” take on her greatest hits, and just a rush the whole way through. Express Yourself bursts to life like I’d never heard it before. Everybody is a super strong opener in this form. Even Like A Prayer which starts a little subdued, really sings by the end in this incarnation.
the Thin White Dick remix is basically a dub though, and they went for the edits in this collection.
There is a promo radio edit of it though. And it's familiar to most people because of the Britney/Christina MTV performance. I don't mind the mix they've included, but for me that swap would have made it perfect.

It works for streaming, I guess. I just wonder how the vinyl will sound...
It’s true there’s radio but it’s not that different from the already released “live” version on I’m Going To Tell You A Secret and the live performance was already released on Remixed And Revisited. She probably wanted another mix for that reason.
