Moby & Trigun - That's When I Reach For My Revolver

I had originally wanted to post something new, but it's stakes-raising time around here. That's right, it's Moby and anime. I like his cover quite a bit better than the original, and the bits from Trigun should speak for themselves.



Your move, Daniel.

Was this MOB? I thought it was Massive Attack. Irregardless, Moby's is a significant upgrade.

(This is actually a major fail for you, Tyles, because this is one of those annoying note-for-note by-the-book covers, except without the real feeling in the original. You'll see tomorrow, if I'm feeling mean. [I'm not, it's ok that you didn't know.])

This version cleans it up quite a bit -- it just sounds more polished and better produced. There's actually an alternate that changes out the "revolver" lyric for something like "That's when I know that it is over," and tones down all the gratuitous violence (obviously that wouldn't work with an anime shoot-out mashup video, but you get the idea).
