nice. great tune. i like the direction he went with this one. i kinda wish that there was more going on with the drums and claps though. they're super prominent, which is cool. but not super interesting or groovy imo.

forgot how great these lyrics are.

Wow, better not voice my opinion on one of my favorite track Brian ever wrote... At least I still have the MATZ version.

I think the tempo gives it more life and the vocals are better. Still love the MATZ version but that feels like a demo to me and this is more fleshed out.

I think the bass work so far on this record is really great.

It's also on iTunes now. If you preordered the album you can download Smoke now!

I love Brian just as much as any of us so I hope he never sees this, but this version is awful. Listening to it is like trying to walk through molasses. Did he rewrite it in 3/4 time or something? It's like the original Smoke got together with The Blues, Mary and this is their surprisingly ugly child. I hate this and I hate the new Long Drives. Sorry to be so harsh, but I don't understand why Brian would take a song that was so perfect and so alive and put a leash and a muzzle on it like it was an unruly dog. Ugh.

I'm actually starting to warm to it. The slower tempo makes it sound kind of sinister, which works well with the lyrics. I still prefer the original, but I can see why he wouldn't just want to do exactly the same thing again.

I will respectfully disagree. This was my favorite MATZ song.... and yet I still LOVE this new version. I love the slower tempo. I REALLY LOVE the addition of the piano. I wish Brian would include a piano more in his music to be honest.

But music is subjective - and we can agree to disagree. Smile

I relying heavily on the fact that we are lucky enough to have the Red Bull sessions.

Long Drives was my favourite Molly and the Zombies song, and I know it'll be different based on the feedback about the record. I want Painkillers to feel new as a whole. If that means changing some of the Molly songs to Brain's Painkiller versions of the songs then that's fine by me. It's like having six songs instead of three, and I (as does each listener) get to decide which version I like more (or the same but different).

@cowgirlwiththeblues I agree with your comment about it sounding more sinister. I like how stark this version is. It's pretty bare bones but I think the slower tempo almost makes it more emotional, in more of a "Goodnight Irene" groove compared to the folk shuffle tempo it had before with MATZ.

I've listened to this version three times and right now i prefer the MATZ version. But i've heard that dozens of times so that's to be expected.

I like that it's so different to the MATZ version. As someone else said, now we can listen to whichever we prefer.

Funny, i think just the opposite. Certainly the vocals sound so raw on this one it has some demo-y qualities to it. But i think i recall Brian saying he was going for that sort of sound on the record.

The lyrics have changed a little from the original song. Also, I don't hate the new version, but still like the OG the best.

I must admit the new version doesn't blow me away but the MATZ version I can't get enough of. Its a different take and as a few have said we have two versions that we can listen. But yeah its far to slow and as result its really lost its X factor for me. I don't see how Long Drives' new arrangement makes it better either...

My totally biased response: You hit the nail on the head for me regarding Smoke, but I'd give Long Drives a little time. I've only gotten to hear the new one live twice now and I'm not listening to youtube videos but I really think the new version might be better.
