Limited to a run of just 250 copies, this 12" single by Norwegian pop queen Annie comes packed with remixes: there are vocal and instrumental versions of an Emperor Machine remix, calling upon squelchy funk basslines and disco grooves, while Justin Robertson goes a little deeper, serving up a high energy, full-blooded house cut. Perhaps more surprising still is the fun dubstep overhaul supplied by Sunkh Knight, but for all this fine work, it's surely the straight-down-the-middle pop of the original that remains the quintessential contribution to the 12". 'My Love Is Better' was produced with notorious chart monopolisers Xenomania, and in its earliest incarnation even involved Girls Aloud on backing vocals. Sadly, that version was vetoed by GA's record company, but what remains is nevertheless a small slice of pop perfection with a memorably silly, taunting chorus. Ace.
