Again? Depends on the shuffle gods.
I like to shuffle my entire library (which includes all of Dylan and all of Theme Time Radio Hour). It works out that Dylan will pop up about 1 out of every 15 songs. The MoW remix actually did come up the other day and I listened to it again and smiled. I've also shared it with a couple of Dylan fans, so maybe I've listened to it 4 times(?)

No doubt the original MoW is the best, but it's not sacred.

I tried a second time and was horrified. I've been reluctant to go back and see which time I was wrong.

This will spawn legions of mixmaster dj's with their stems and their badass fruityloops rigs to process, quantize and autotune Bob's entire catalog to make it palatable to the Psy-boobie cluster punk crowd.

I am sure you are absolutely correct in that judgement, yes.

I think it was bobdylan.com a few years back that spawned these interesting mixes.

This is the REMIX.

I like it but wish he'd have kept a few more of the verses, the escalation from the relatively soft opening verses to wishing them all dead is a bit much, it needs the bit about not being able to buy back their souls to fully sell the righteous indignation of the final verse. Or maybe I'm just over thinking it. Be interested to see what the B-side is before I brave the RSD queues.

After 30 sec. I started to get sick, but a 1988 Bob-version saved me.

Maybe it’s exciting to someone who never heard Bob Dialin.
Likely pretty boring for those familiar with Bob’s works.

I've never heard of "Bob Dialin" but I also hated this version.

It takes all the teeth out of it. There's real hate in this song and the remix is a little too elevator music peppy dance beat for the lyrics. You don't tell someone even Jesus would never forgive them... envision their death in such vivid terms, etc... while you're shaking your ass on the dance floor.

Now a death metal screaming goth biting the heads off something real x hate you sort of thing might work. And I don't mean Eddie Vedder. That was still too x.

Not too impressed, but what's on the b-side of this RSD single?

Went back to this- and I’m really not as opposed to it. I can get into it, even if it’s not something I see myself returning to often.

I also noticed a new remix, this time done by SherGun, which I think is comprised of two people. Any thoughts on that should go here too.

I hope someone tackles a song like Political World, if this remix thing goes on.

The SherGun remix is ace. Love it.

It’s not ruined, you have the original and various other versions.

Some would say that Dylan himself has played some questionable versions of the song, doesn’t ruin the original though.

Not sure if actually have an opinion on it. It's cool I guess. I put it into the Spotify master playlist. Every now and then it appears on shuffle and I either skip it or I don't skip it, making it one with all 400-ish songs on the master playlist.

I'm rarely going to willingly listen to "Master's of War" in any incarnation tbh. It's a fine song, but who goes around just listening to "Masters of War"? Who willingly could listen to any song and is like, "I want the one about war profiteering but only if it was recorded in the early 60's on acoustic guitar sung by the guy who sang all the other songs."

I listen to Times[i] like once every two years, [i]Freewheelin' a few times a year. I dunno. He recorded his best albums after the acoustic stuff. And [i]Times[i] just makes me want to curl up in a ball and die.
