The 7" version of "Walking in My Shoes" is not the same as the one in the Songs of Faith and Devotion album. The sound has been made more noisy and dirty, especially the drums in the verse, and the intro has been shortened. When performed live, elements of the "Grungy Gonads" mix are used in an extended intro and throughout the song. The B-side is "My Joy", the only exclusive B-side from the "Songs Of Faith And Devotion" album, and is a rock track in the vein of "I Feel You" and "Halo".
Though the song itself was never completed in a mix that satisfied everyone in the band, both the album version and the slightly tweaked single version of "Walking in My Shoes," the latter of which starts off this disc, still are marvelous efforts. With a darkly beautiful lead piano line, subtle but effective scratches, a slow build of full orchestration that gets even better as it goes, and striking, haunting guitar from Gore, it's a dramatic, cinematic number.

The track has the trademark Orbit sound to it with the spaced out ambient notes at the beginning. I just love when it breaks into the chorus - 'If you try walking in my shoes, you'd stumble in my footsteps' because with this version, the track compliments David Gahan's voice to such fine effect that you know he means it with sincerity. That does not translate so well on the original. It was my best track from the whole 12 remixes box set which i sold when i got this.
