This is the way - step inside
I hardly ever use soundcloud, but I really like the concept of commenting on specific parts.
As for the remixes, Jade has a knack for making songs / remixes that are really enjoyable, even if they're not always good.
The bar has been set pretty low for remixes, since I listen to a lot of bands whose singles tend to have 8 b-sides of mostly crummy remixes. So usually, if a remix is decent, it gets upgraded to "good".
But Help I'm Alive was really mediocre. I wound up skipping around after the halfway point to see if anything changed.
It doesn't help that I'm not familiar enough with Metric to know what all was changed (for me they're one of those, cool when someone else puts them on, but I wouldn't bands).
