Haha, great stuff! GM's mix is a lot drier, but more along the lines of what I was hearing as far as the drums. There is a lot more separation in GM's mix which in my opinion doesn't work as well as the blended, orchestral arrangement. It seems a bit more sterile. The one thing that glaringly turned me back onto the website version was how the bridge was done. Holy crap, those guitars come out of nowhere and kind of step on her voice a bit. I wasn't a huge fan of that. They were placed right in the pocket but there was nothing there for a solid minute so my ears were a bit stunned (or maybe that's what he was going for to grab the listener before hitting the finale). I think they are both amazing, but I have to give the nod to the website version. Lush, emotional...it just fits the vocal and the song.
