1 stars I can feel no sense of measure - goodbye heaven, hello hell!

The album version of the song Leave It appeared on the 90125 album in 1983. The single version is however a remix of the song. This version is not awful but I prefer the album version. The a cappella version that forms the b-side of the single is, on the other hand, quite horrible! Indeed, it would be a good candidate if one wanted to use sound torture on someone! Both of these version have since been included as bonus tracks on the CD remaster of 90125.

The 12" version of the single has the same two tracks as above plus yet another remix of the song called the Hello, Goodbye Mix. This version runs for nine and half minutes and takes some effort to sit through! It is rather typical of remixes from this time and is at best a curiosity for fans and it merits at most a single listen. If you can stomach it!

Do yourself a favour and stick with the album version (even though it is one of the least good song on that album in the first place) and leave this single alone. These remixes are either unnecessary or downright abominations!
