Tegan and Sara: The same old song

How would you feel about a record which just featured the same song, done in slightly different ways, over and over again?

True, that could be describing any Boyzone album, but in this case we're talking about Alligator by Tegan and Sara. iTunes only, and this is the track list:

1.) Alligator (Holy Fuck Remix)
2.) Alligator (Passion Pit Remix – 80s Mixtape Jam Flex Edit)
3.) Alligator (Toro Y Moi Remix)
4.) Alligator (VHS or Beta Remix)
5.) Alligator (Doveman Remix)
6.) Alligator (Four Tet Remix)
7.) Alligator (Murge Remix)
8.) Alligator (Ra Ra Riot Remix)
9.) Alligator (Automatic Panic Remix)
1o.) Alligator (Hi-Deaf Remix)
11.) Alligator (Dave Sitek Remix)
12.) Alligator (Sara’s Original Demo Version)
13.) Alligator (Morgan Page Remix)
14.) Alligator (Kevin St. Croix Remix)
15.) Alligator (Mad Decent Remix)
16.) Alligator (Josh Harris Remix)
17.) Alligator (Hamel Remix)

They're going to be bloody angry if it turns out it was actually a crocodile.

This is an interesting experiment in trying to give the kids today the sensation of buying those dance singles with seemingly a million remixes in Woolworths back in the early '90s.
