"I haven't been a Sarah Brightman far too long, maybe two years I think. I am not a fan of opera music by all means, a lot of it bores me or gets on my last nerves. Although her music isn't pure opera, Sarah still manages to take elements of opera music and make it interesting for this music fan. I think Sarah has one of the most beautiful voices on this planet. She sings like an angel. My first Sarah Brightman album was 2000's "La Luna", which remains a personal fave of mine. One of my favorite songs on the album is the Procol Harum cover "A Whiter Shade of Pale". Sarah does a stunning interpretation of the classic rock song. I came across the single for "A White Shade of Pale/A Question of Honour" a couple of years ago and was intrigued to see that there were remixes of the songs. I was eager to hear what Sarah would sound like remixed. There were some good mixes and some not-so good mixes. I wasn't too fond of the Ecstasy mix of "A Whiter Shade of Pale". As much as I enjoy Rhys Fulber's work in general, I didn't think he did a great job remixing this particular song. It was too mellow. I preferred the more uptempo remixes like the ATB remix and my personal favorite the Paralyzer Remix, a killer trance track. As far as "A Question of Honour", the Pech remix got on my nerves. How typically cheesy. Of all the remixes, I felt that the Damage Control remix was the best although I did enjoy the Knock Out mix and Tom Lord-Alge's mix. Despite its flaws, I would just love it if Sarah would put out more remixes of her songs. That would totally rock my world. It would show a totally different side of Sarah's music that listeners rarely hear."
Better than the US version (in my opinion)

"I don't like giving things away, but this single has tracks 1-5 from the American pressing, only its order is changed and the artwork different. But there's a good reason for its being sought after: a lot of Sarah B fans touring EBAY are NOT interested in the US release simply because it's "easy to find."Needless to say, I don't attach myself to enhanced CDs very much, even though I liked the ECD content on the American release. I hated the fact that the (lousy) remixes of A Question of Honour were thrown into the normal pressing, and those mixes did the single only middling justice. And I already have the QOH mixes by themselves on the 1995 5-track green CD of the same name. THIS version of WSOP is the definitive one because, although the WSOP mixes are by themselves, they should be represented properly and not hounded by bloody (sorry about that) remixes of an earlier and superb work (QOH).The collaboration's three mixers-Andre ATB Tanneberger, Rhys Fulber with Tom Holkenborg (Delerium), and Paralyzer-have done such a great job that you'll want to play (and dance to) this single again and again.Overall, if you like to collect Sarah's memorabilia, this is one of the collectibles for you. If you already have the US version, you probably don't need this one, because the US version is more built up with ten cuts and enhanced content.That's all, folks!"
