After listening to the Screwed & Chopped version for so long, its really disorienting to finally hear David Banner's "Choose Me" in its original form (just bought it). I miss the drawn-out feel of the remix. The pain and yearning felt so much more nightmarish and desperate there. Where "Choose Me" was a peak of the Screwed version (at least for a melody freak like myself), the one on MTA proper just sounds like dance floor filler (haha even four plus minute tracks on this sound light-speed and rushed after months of slow and low), while other tracks benefit from the increase in bounce.

Thanks to the efforts of critics and ILXors to push the remix, Banner's actual voice sounds so non-threatening now! I don't think that was his intention.
