My favorite Erasure song but not my favorite remixes

"I had a lot of expectations with the remixes for my personal favorite Erasure song. "Fingers & Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day)" is so irresistably catchy, I'm constantly playing the song over and over a few times at work when I bring the duo's self-titled album to work. I always thought the song would sound great remixed. Now that I have the second part of the two cd remixes for the song, I must say I was left a bit annoyed that the remixes left a bland taste on my mouth. Out of the three remixes of "Fingers & Thumbs", I liked the Tin Tin Out Remix. That's probably because the vocals remain intact and no annoying dub beats like on the Dub On the Moon mix. The unavailable track "HI NRG" was cheesy and mediocre for Erasure. Hopefully someday I can find the other half of the two cd set of remixes for my favorite Erasure song 'cause part two disappointed me."
I Liked the album version better:

""Fingers & Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day)" is one of my favorite Erasure songs of all, and I was thrilled when I bought this. The Tin Tin Out Remix was the only version I really liked and at 8+ minutes was a little much. The Electrofinger Remix was fair. I wished they would've stayed closer to the album version and used more of the lyrics cuz they're excellent. Some of the versions just lost me after a while."
