Discography & Releases / Re: New Passengers Mix in Discography.
« Last post by dagobah on February 17, 2018, 12:58:46 PM »
The following is from the u2songs.com article referenced in the first post . . . . . . The History Mix: Passengers Distinctive Forms
The last song on the album is “One Minute Warning” but it is not the version from the film and the Passengers album.  Instead this version has alternate instrumentation throughout the song, and instead of the chorus of male voices at the end singing the lyrics, we only hear Holi.  The song is slightly longer than the original by 20 seconds, and the lyrics repeat the line “A lonesome soul” additional times at the end.

OK, I understand the above info.  For the purpose of keeping things specific for the question in my post, PLEASE TAKE NOTE:  I will refer to the above version as One Minute Warning [Soundtrack Mix] because that is how the u2songs discography refers to it.

The u2song.com article also says:
I’ve long been a fan of the Passengers album, and the last thing I expected to be listening to this week is a new version of one of those songs.  Thank you Arthem for bringing this to our attention.  The extended “soundtrack” version of the song can be heard below, but please note this version has added guitar above and beyond the soundtrack mix, added by the person who uploaded to SoundCloud.

I'm confused about something.  It says "but please note this version has added guitar above and beyond the soundtrack mix, added by the person who uploaded to SoundCloud."

Does that mean that the person (who uploaded to SoundCloud) added guitar to One Minute Warning [Soundtrack Mix], which was already different from One Minute Warning [Studio Version]?

So all three of these are different?  (again . . . . . to be clear for my post):
1.  One Minute Warning [Studio Version]
2.  One Minute Warning [Soundtrack Mix]
3.  One Minute Warning [version uploaded to SoundCloud]

Got tipped off about a 22 year old mix that we had missed in the discography. An alternate version of "One Minute Warning".

Story here, with a look at some other alternate takes on Passengers stuff:

Be cautious with this one as bootleg copies of that CD do exist from a number of different manufacturers.

My order was shipped November 30th to Canada. It arrived this Monday (February 5th), so it took just over 2 months to arrive. The packaging was excellent, box + paper + bubble wrap.

Dang! Did you contact them at any point and get the item reshipped, or was this just how long it took for the original order? I agree about the packaging though. The Japanese still very much care about the physical aspect of music. Bless them.

No, I did not contact them.
The email confirmation contained the following: "On average, it takes 2-6 weeks for delivery for this shipping method. *May take up to 12 weeks"

Cheers,

Dagobah I went with the same shipping option as well from CD Japan. I got an email earlier this week saying it had shipped. I'll be sure to post here when it arrives. Hope yours get here soon!
I guess you have not yet received it.  I placed my Japan order on November 30, the email says the order shipped on December 4 and I'm still waiting.
Oh wow! Sorry I forgot to report here. Yes, I received my CDJapan copy on December 15 (I preordered it very early, though). I would give it a few more days and then maybe contact CDJapan again. The wait can apparently be up to six weeks!

I finally got to listen to those bonus tracks (I stubbornly chose to wait for the disc to arrive).  While I'm most pleased to have them, they're admittedly a bit of a letdown after such a long wait.  I think the bonus tracks on SOI were definitely a better lot than this selection.
I also chose to wait for the disc to arrive from Japan so I understand how you felt during that time.

I'll be curious to see how/if your opinion changes regarding "Book of Your Heart" over time. I love it more and more ardently every time I hear it, and I would replace probably half of what's on the album proper with it, if I had my say.
I feel the same way about Book Of Your Heart.  I love it so much.  I wish it was longer.  Because of the fact that it's a bonus track, I suspect we won't ever hear any remixes of it.

I think 2+ months is ridiculous.  But I'm happy to hear you guys are finally receiving the package.

Also, for whatever it's worth, I do think the Extraordinary Mix of "Ordinary Love" is the very best mix of the track.

I'm still waiting on my preorder from CD Japan to arrive.  My hope is that by posting this, it will make it appear today.

It didn't work.  It finally arrived yesterday, 68 (9 weeks, 5 days) days after shipping, slightly over the estimated 2-6 weeks delivery time.

Hello there,

I subscribed last week and chose the "special gift revealed early 2018". But what is that special gift? Was it revealed yet?

Thanks in advance!
