Why do we like this?

I am not usually a fan of RAC remixes (and the ideology behind them), but their take on Bastille's "Laura Palmer" is resonating with me. Granted, RAC has turned the acoustic original into what kind of sounds like an overproduced Phoenix song... but I've been listening to it all day, and I can't stop. Plus, lead singer Dan Smith's deep, dreamy vocals layered over aren't half bad.

What is successful about this rework is that it renders the song into something more profound than it was -- and its catchiness doesn't impede that. Or, if you take argument with that statement, this version feels more grounded at a minimum.

Do you love this or hate it? Let's fight about it.
