The good or bad of Victim was strongly in Jerry's hands. If he was off, the whole mutha fucking song fell apart.
Jeff, I listened to your version and quickly shut it off after Jerry fucked up the first run up. It kills it.
I do agree the song eventually became over processed and lost it's primal energy that I am very much a fan of.
Sadly, I think "Victim dislike" is more of a result of it being a freakin' trainwreck waaaay more often than masterpiece.
On XM they just played the studio version. While it's a bit "polite" it's performed flawlessly and hearing the band break scores (pun intended) of composition rules and break every norm the ear predicts and still sound so cohesive is just marvelous.
