Land of a Thousand Words (Junkie XL Remix)

Song: Land of a Thousand Words (Junkie XL Remix)
Artist: Scissor Sisters
Album: Land of a Thousand Words

I’ve been a bit obsessed with the original version of this song for the last couple weeks and was pretty excited for the single, which was released last week. Unfortunately this was the only other track, a remix by Junkie XL who did amazing things with the Sister’s “Mary” as well as the remix for Elvis’ “A Little Less Conversation.” I am not blown away by this remix, and feel it could have been a bit better. It’s not necessarily beat heavy enough to be dancefloor-ready, and not loungy enough to be… well, loungy.

I was really hoping for a new song as a b-side, though they may have just put the best of those on the “Ta-Dah” bonus disc. (“Ambition,” which was on the “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’” single was pretty boring.) I guess they can’t all be the best.


And if you haven't seen it yet...
