Having a re-record of Shine is better than not having it at all. I hope they did more, like December....so that can be released as DLC at some point!
Third Eye Blind's Semi-Charmed Life was the only re-record that I didn't like, but that wasn't exactly because of the fact that it was a re-record...it's just was mixed horribly for RBN and sounded horrible, but somehow got through the peer review at the time. Jumper and Never Let You Go sound great.
As far as official DLC goes, the STYX and EMF re-records are incredible. The EMF song Unbelievable especially sounds nearly identical to the original version.
