You can have a different opinion or criticize whatever you want. The "acoustic version" is just in no way better than this version. It just is not.
See? that's the wonderful thing about opinions, you have yours and I have mine. You saying that it's better doesn't mean that it IS better, me saying it sucks doesn't mean that either.
Trust me, I want to like every single track on this upcoming album with all my heart. I've been a fan since I was 15, and it's a band that I hold near and dear to my soul. Here's to hoping!
