Different, and Maybe Better?
This was never a standout song of the PBP album for me. The drums are a little awkward and jarring and I always felt they they were trying too hard to make this into some major bombastic song. This version tones down the instrumentation, "pops" and "dances" it up a bit, but ultimately lets her voice be heard better. It also changes the ending and beginning to create a smoother entry and soft, but final end. Very much like someone has said, "I've said what I needed to and that's it" I'm reminded of something attributed to Billy Joel, "how do you end this thing and make ring true?"
KELLY! KELLY NOOOO.
I rated this song five stars because it is a great song at its core. It's like the sequel to the hit Because of You.
They decided to release a radio mix and utterly butchered the album version. You're probably thinking, "Oh, they shortened for time?" Well, yes. But they also changed so many things about the production that it's almost unrecognizable. They turned a personal, beautiful song into a generic pop remix. Boo.
It is too bad they didn't go with the tour production. She had performed it with just a piano and a lot of people loved it.
I love the album version
This song is amazing, BUT the album version is so much better. I do not think the techo beats work with the song well.
